Those of you who stayed through the end of the credits for Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy will recall getting a quick look at Howard The Duck, the Marvel comic book character who’s reputation was besmudged by George Lucas’s 1986 big-screen adaptation. But, it’s thanks to Howard’s brief post-credits appearance in Guardians that the talking duck has a chance to reinvent himself for a newer audience.
A new ongoing Howard The Duck comic book series from writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Joe Quinones is coming this March from Marvel Comics. The cover for Howard the Duck #1, by Joe Quinones, features the character as a private investigator on Earth, with a potted baby Groot along with other popular Marvel superheroes in the backdrop. Now, Quinones’ cover for Howard the Duck #2 has been revealed and it features Howard along with the Guardians of the Galaxy themselves doing a duck-face, selfie pose.
Check out both covers here below.
Here’s Marvel’s solicitation for issue #1, which is available for pre-order now, with a release date of March 04, 2015.
