Overview

Get down, America! Vote Howard the Duck in 2008! That's right, folks. It's an election year, and what better way to celebrate than to cast your vote for the one candidate who'll tell it like it is. Born on a planet populated by talking waterfowl, Howard the Duck found himself trapped in a world he never made: ours! Howard was the archetypal outsider, able to see through the absurdities of human society in the 1970s with uncanny accuracy and an acerbic wit. His adventures presented writer Steve Gerber with a platform from which to engage in an ongoing critique of contemporary fools and pretenders, from power-mad capitalist wizard Pro-Rata to cult leader Reverend Joon Moon Yuc to the dreaded Doctor Bong! Experience for yourself the complete comic adventures of Howard in this Omnibus collection, reprinting his first appearances and the entire run of his first series.
Collecting stories from Adventures Into Fear #19, Man-Thing #1, Giant-Size Man-Thing #4-5, Howard the Duck #1-33, Marvel Treasury Edition #12, and Marvel Team-Up #96.

    Waaaaagh!! The Duck gets his Due!

    If all you know about Howard the Duck is the Increadibly cheesy Lucasfilm production from the mid 80's - then you REALLY don't know Howard the Duck! Writer Steve Gerber brought a one-of-a-kind sense of humor and social-consciousness to this title. Howard represented every man (or woman) who looked at the world around them and screamed 'what the heck is going on ... and why is it going this way?!?' The art is top-notch and the color restoration on this edition is just stunning. The only negative (and it's a minor one) is the heft of these omnibus volumes. I would rather the books be split into two separate volumes, and sold in a slip-cover. Overall I was very pleased to see this unique character get this level of treatment and strongly recommend this book to anybody who is interested in the history of comics from the era of the 70's and Thank you Steve Gerber - RIP.

    Duck Redux: Deeply Weird

    So you've got the Essential HTD (ISBN 0785108319) and want to know if this is for you? Good question. If you wondered how the hanging plotline turned out, you might be disappointed, because it's certainly nothing like you'd expect. If you were more concerned with whether Gerbs ever came up with an answer to the questions he posed in 'Zen And The Art Of Comic Book Writing', and how the hanging subtext came out, this is your book -- especially if you liked the FALL OUT episode of THE PRISONER, which suggests you're a devious enough thinker to dig out the subtleties. Note: the fact that there are subtleties is one of the subtleties!
