Another ‘Howard the Duck’ #1!

I understand the marketing reasons for a new #1, and at least Chip Zdarsky and Joe Quinones are having fun with it in the faint spirit of Howard’s creator Steve Gerber. Make no mistake: this is a continuation of a quirky series that holds no sacred cows in the Marvel Universe, making parody into continuity. I’d like to see this take make it to at least #32… though I kind of fear the presence of Gwenpool.

From Marvel:

He’s back! That Marvelous Mallard. That Foul Fowl. We’re talking about the one and only Howard the Duck – coming to you this November for a brand-new HOWARD THE DUCK #1! Don’t miss your chance to jump on board the series the world is talking about before they keep talking about it without you!

Along with his shape shifting companion Tara Tam and new office administrator Aunt May, he’ll take on the hard cases no mere man nor duck will touch. Plus, don’t miss a special backup story featuring the highly anticipated debut of Gwenpool!
