Howard the Duck Legends Revealed

With Howard the Duck #1 released this week, we thought it would make sense to revisit our spotlight of the various installments of Comic Book Legends Revealed that featured Howard over the years.


Did Disney make Marvel change Howard the Duck’s physical appearance (particularly making him wear pants)?

Did Howard the Duck receive enough write-in votes for the 1976 United States Presidential Election that he showed up on national charts for the election?

How did Neil Gaiman’s appreciation for a joke in a twenty-year old issue of Howard the Duck lead to a Steve Gerber Vertigo series?

Did Steve Gerber lose the chance to write a brand-new Howard the Duck ongoing to coincide with the then-new Howard film due to Gerber wanting to erase everything that had happened to Howard since he first left the book?

Was the secret identity for the Howard the Duck villain Dr. Bong named after a writer who gave Steve Gerber a bad review?

Was a Frank Brunner drawing of Howard and Beverley in bed too salacious for the Comics Code?
