"Howard The Duck" - Trapped In A World He Never Made



Take another look @ Marvel Comics' booze-guzzling three-foot-tall anthropomorphic 'Howard The Duck', as Disney continues developing the character, originally a parody of 'Donald Duck', for new live-action opportunities:


'Howard the Duck' was created by writer Steve Gerber and illustrator Val Mayerik, as an 'existentialist' expression, with its main joke, according to Gerber, is that there is no joke: "that life's most serious moments and most incredibly dumb moments are often distinguishable only by a momentary point of view..."


Howard found himself on Earth due to a shift in the 'Cosmic Axis' from a world similar to Earth.


Howard's near-constant companion and occasional girlfriend is former art model and Cleveland native 'Beverly Switzler'. 


"Howard the Duck" debuted in Marvel's "Adventure into Fear" #19 in 1973, and by 1976 was given his own title. 


George Lucas then produced a live-action version in 1986.
