Marvel Brings Back Howard the Duck

Howard the Duck

Prepare to get back in touch with the original Master of Quack Fu.

Marvel has announced that it’s working on a new printing of the hardcover Howard the Duck Omnibus. Originally published in 2008, the book collectes the best comics featuring the wise-quacking alien fowl spanning his 40-year history, with the aim of giving newcomers a taste of what makes him popular among comic book aficionados. The new printing of the Howard the Duck Omnibus will hit shelves this October.

Created by Steve Gerber and Val Mayerik in 1973, Howard the Duck would go on to become a staple of the Marvel comics of that era. Born on a planet populated by talking waterfowl, Howard the Duck found himself trapped on a world he never made: ours! The archetypal outsider, Howard waddled his way through the Marvel Universe for years armed with nothing but his razor sharp wit. Now, explore every one of these groundbreaking original stories as they take you from Duckworld to our world, in a Howard the Duck experience like no other!

It’s probably not a coincidence that this announcement comes just days after the smash success of Guardians of the Galaxy, which features a surprise cameo by Howard the Duck.
