Howard the Duck getting his own Monthly series
We, as comic book collectors, have a lot to look forward to this coming year. A bunch of movies, new toy lines and most important new comic book titles.
One of the most anticipated has to be Howard the Duck. Following his appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy, which you can read about in our post Howard the Duck in Guardians of the Galaxy, Howard has become a sensation again, he even has a Funko Pop Vinyl figure coming out.
Well Marvel has decided to roll the dice and start his own monthly series. The series will begin in March, in Howard will take a job as a private investigator, solving crimes using his brains and his mastery of the ancient art of quack-fu. The series will be written by Chip Zdarsky and drawn by Joe Quinones, a Spider-Man guest appearance is already set, are the Guardians far behind.
This is not Marvel strangest characters first on-going series, Howard’s first on-going series ended with issue #33 in 1986. But with his recent appearance his popularity is back and Marvel hopes to rocket him back to stardom.
For this of you unaware Howard the Duck was the first marvel movie character to appear is his own feature length movie, could this happen again? Time will tell. Until then enjoy the new series.
Good Luck on Your Hunt!
