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

4 January 2015 9:19 AM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ Marvel Comics' cigar-smoking, three-foot-tall anthropomorphic 'Howard The Duck', including his post-credits scene in Marvel Studios "Guardians Of The Galaxy", on the news that Disney is developing the character for further 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.
