Get down America Vote Howard the Duck in 2008 That's right folks It's an election year and what better way to celebrate than to cast your vote for the one candidate who'll tell it like it is Born on a planet populated by talking waterfowl Howard the Duck found himself trapped in a world he never made ours Howard was the archetypal outside. Had the entire run been written by Gerber this would probably get four stars as for the most part the Gerber penned issues are amusing and innovative However the last hundred pages or so are by other hands and the writers especially can't measure up to Gerber's offbeat sensibility and for that matter the artists even though I generally admire their work Paul Smith's especially can't measure up to Gene Colan who drew the lion's share of the original run According to an interview appended to the collection he found his work on Howard the most satisfying of his career which surprised me somewhat as I wouldn't say it's his best work though it certainly is distinctively Colan and always admirable Perhaps the inkers didn't uite do it justice Al Milgrom certainly didn't for the pages he inked Anyway the stories offer a hodge podge of satire of comics as well as of society generally and politics specifically notably in Howard's multi issue run for President apparently nobody checked HIS birth certificate along with occasional appearances from Marvel mainstays no doubt mandated by Marvel Well worth reading for the Gerber material though even it has its ups and downs but one can easily skip the final two or three issues reprinted The interview from FOOM is a nice and surprising bonus though; given that the mag was Marvel's official fanzine I am surprised they let Gerber get away with a few of the things he said about mainstream comics

Howard The Duck Omnibus HCAded Doctor Bong Experience for yourself the complete comic adventures of Howard in this Omnibus collection reprinting his first appearances and the entire run of his first series Collecting stories from Adventures Into Fear #19 Man Thing #1 Giant Size Man Thing #4 5 Howard the Duck #1 33 Marvel Treasury Edition #12 and Marvel Team Up #96. I like the fact that Steve Gerber tried to do things differently than Marvel usually does and I uite enjoyed his and Gene Colan's interviews but the content of this book is also a bit dated and sometimes the philosophical references seem to be pretentious and needless
