On Friday, Entertainment Weekly announced that Howard the Duck would be returning in an all-new ongoing series in 2015. This new series is being handled by Chip Zdarsky and Joe Quinones, who are taking Howard the Duck and putting him on Earth as a private investigator. “I love the contrast of Howard against both the normal world of us hairless apes and the weird worlds of Man-Things and Dr. Stranges and Spider-Mans. ‘Cause he doesn’t fit into either, really.'”, Zdarsky says of Howard. This contrast is what will drive the series, which will be more humorous than anything else.
Quinones has given Howard the Duck a bit of a makeover too, to help him fit in with other Marvel characters a little better. Check out the cover to issue #1 below, along with some sketches too. The Howard the Duck ongoing series will be launching in March 2015. You can read an interview with both creators over at the EW’s PopWatch.
