Howard the Duck Returns This September In ‘Spider-Man: Back in Quack’

While Disney’s relationship with Marvel regarding Steve Gerber and Val Mayerik’s Howard the Duck hasn’t historically been, shall we say, awesome, the publishing pair’s merger seems to have already had a positive effect on Howard’s productivity. This September writer Stuart Moore and artists Mark Brooks, Joe Suitor and cover artist Skottie Young are on board to begin shining at least a little bit of Marvel’s spotlight on its most iconic anthropomorphic fowl in “Spider-Man: Back in Quack” #1.

What’s in store for the Web Slinger and his fine feathered (sorta) friend? Marvel sorts it out this way:

“Presenting two of Marvel’s finest: Spider-Man and … Cynical Duck (TM)? Yes, Howard the Duck’s brain has been thoroughly scrubbed, his hard-edged humor carefully dulled down for maximum demographic acceptance. It’s up to Peter Parker to set the duck straight — but does the world prefer Howard this way? Guest-starring the villainy of SOOPhI, the utter cluelessness of Mayor J. Jonah Jameson, and the unnerving eroticism of “Swizzle,” SOOPhI’s whip-wielding corporate spokeswoman. So wrong it’s … well, no, it’s still wrong, courtesy of Stuart Moore (NAMOR) and Mark Brooks (YOUNG AVENGERS). Plus: a tiny-size Man-Thing backup feature by Stuart Moore & Joe Suitor (MARVEL BREAKOUT)!”
