Howard The Duck Gets His Own Ongoing Comic Series In March 2015

Marvel Comics has announced that Howard The Duck will be getting his very own solo comic series again, his first in seven years. Sex Criminals artist Chip Zdarsky will pen the series which sees Captain Marvel and Savage Wolverine artist Joe Quinones on pencils.

“He’s an everyman who happens to be a duck,” Zdarsky tells Entertainment Weekly. “He’s angry, exasperated, and he’s had it up to here with the world around him, but he’s trapped here! Infinitely relatable! 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. I’m just going to continue exploring those contrasts, but my ultimate goal is to make it funny. Marvel has taken chances on funny books and injecting humor into superhero titles, so I want to make sure this is worth some chuckles here and there.”

Created by writer Steve Gerber and artist Val Mayerik, Howard the Duck made his first appearance in 1973′s Adventure Into Fear #19 before getting his own eponymous book in 1976. Recently the character has made appearances in the “Civil War,” “Secret Invasion,” “Fear Itself,” and even this year’s “Original Sin” storylines.

Howard the Duck #1 will debut in March of 2015.

NECA Announces Special Edition Michael Keaton/Blu-ray Batman Figure Pack

$_57

NECA announced a special edition Michael Keaton/Blu-ray Batman pack and put preorders up at ebay ($30):

Celebrate the 25th anniversary of the film that defined Batman for the modern generation — pick up the new Batman Diamond Luxe Blu-ray and get a bonus Batman action figure!

Made by NECA, Batman stands 7″ tall and features the likeness of Michael Keaton! The figure has over 25 points of articulation for great poses, plus removable cape, Batarang and Spear Gun accessories.

In 1989, director Tim Burton breathed new life into one of the most complex and intriguing characters in popular culture. Burton cast off the 1960s camp depiction of the Dark Knight and launched one of the most popular comic book film series ever. Tim Burton’s vision and Michael Keaton’s performance as the Caped Crusader combine perfectly to capture Gotham City’s sinister atmosphere and Batman’s brooding nature. Jack Nicholson stars in a memorable performance as the maniacal Joker and Kim Basinger is Vicki Vale, the beautiful and resourceful photojournalist desired by both men. Featuring songs by Prince and a score by Danny Elfman, Batman won the 1990 Oscar for Best Art Direction/Set Decoration. The new Diamond Luxe Two-Disc Edition includes brand-new bonus material: “Batman: The Birth of the Modern Blockbuster,” a look at the phenomenal marketing, extensive merchandising and franchise foresight that set the template for the next 25 years of tentpole pictures.

Items will be available to ship after 12/9/14.
