HOWARD THE DUCK COVER & SPLASH PAGE GALLERY - PART ONE...
He had a 'walk-on' part in a MAN-THING tale in ADVENTURE
Into FEAR #19 in 1973, appeared next in a couple of back-up stories
in GIANT-SIZE MAN-THING #4 & 5, and was then awarded his own
comic mag in 1976. Created by STEVE GERBER & VAL MAYERIK,
he eventually underwent a slight revision in appearance when DISNEY
(who ironically now own MARVEL) objected to the character on the
grounds that he was too similar-looking to DONALD DUCK.
The rest, as they say, is history - and it's a history we're now about to
re-live by looking at the covers and splash pages of the first dozen issues
(in two parts) of his own magazine. Incidentally, I'll have to re-read these
mags again as I don't recall too much about them - apart, that is, from #3,
which is an absolute classic in comicbook entertainment. A word to the
wise - track one down on eBay right away - you'll be glad you did!
See you in Part Two - coming soon!
