Howard the Duck in Guardians of the Galaxy

If you didn't see Guardians of the Galaxy yet, what were you doing the last four day. If you didn't see Howard the Duck in the movie, you didn't stay till the end, always stay to the end of the credits during a Marvel movie, ALWAYS!

The end of the movie has a scene between Howard the Duck and The Collector. Earlier n the movie if you were playing really close attention you would have noticed Howard in a cell in the background of the Collectors room.

For this of you that don't know anything about Howard the Duck, you will when you finish reading this post. We don't only hunt here at CBH&G we also educate.

About Howard the Duck

Howard the Duck comes from  a planet in another dimension called Duck World. On this planet the dominant species are Ducks, other then that the planet is very similar to Earth. Howard is the oldest son of Dave and Dottie. You can find out more on Marvel Comics homepage

From Howard the Duck Movie, circa 1987

First Appearance
Howard the Duck made his first appearance in Adventure into Fear #19. Written by Steve Gerber with art by Sal Trapani. In the issue,  Thog's an out-worldly demon is planning to collide different realms. Thog is confronted by a multi-generational Army led by Korrek, Jennifer Kale, Dakimh, the Man-Thing and for the first time ever, Howard the Duck.
This first appearance will cost you about $800 for a high CGC graded copy or starting at $25 for ungraded. It really is an interesting issue to have in your collection.

In Guardians of the Galaxy
Even though Howard the Duck starred in the biggest Marvel based movie flop which was released in 1987, they still decided to use him as part of the post-credit scene. After the credits the Collector is sitting in the ruins of his collection with Cosmo the Dog, when Howard the Duck makes a snide remark. Both Cosmo and Howard can be seen earlier in the movie locked up as part of the Collectors menagerie. A funny way to end a movie that was very funny. Howard the Duck was voiced by Seth Green.

Time to go get a another first appearance, so,what are you waiting for Adventure into Fear#19 is waiting for you.
