EXCLUSIVE: "Howard the Duck" Finale Gets Painted and Action Figure Variants

Marvel's latest "Howard the Duck" series is set to wrap in September with issue #11 from the creative team of writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Joe Quinones, but the series looks to do something special before it wraps. Zdarsky -- who, of course, is also the artist of the Eisner-winning Image Comics series "Sex Criminals" -- painted a variant cover for the final issue, putting the series' titular duck in a serious spotlight.

Additionally, "Howard the Duck" #11 will receive the latest in a series of action figure variant covers from artist John Tyler Christopher, featuring both Howard and co-star Tara Tam. CBR has the exclusive first look at both covers.

"Howard the Duck" #11 is scheduled for release on Sept. 28. Full solicitation text follows.

HOWARD THE DUCK #11

CHIP ZDARSKY (W) • JOE QUINONES (A/C)

LAST ISSUE VARIANT COVER BY CHIP ZDARSKY

ACTION FIGURE VARIANT COVER BY JOHN TYLER CHRISTOPHER

DEFENDERS VARIANT COVER BY Jamal Campbell

• Join Chip (Zdarsky) and Joe (Quinones) as they say goodbye to Howard in a Very Special Issue that is still priced as a Regular Issue!

• Can Howard outwit fate? Can any of us? Or is the concept of predestination just shorthand for the near-infinite factors in play that are guided, at their core, by free will?

• Guest-starring Spider-Man, probably.
