Deadpool is Marvel's most popular comedy character of the last decade. Howard the Duck was the publisher's comedy star of the Bronze Age, and he's enjoyed a recent revival. But what if these two characters were squished together into one character? That's the very important question that's answered in Deadpool the Duck, a five issue mini-series written by Stuart Moore with art by Jacopo Camagni.
Announced at New York Comic Con on Friday, Deadpool the Duck, by Stuart Moore and Jacopo Camagni, is a five-issue miniseries in which Deadpool becomes Howard the Duck, or maybe Howard the Duck becomes Deadpool. To be honest it seems a little complicated. In any case the comic comes out in January 2017, and you have to admit that a duck in Deadpool's costume is pretty cute.

In the process of writing my article about muscles vs curves, and how the big dudes of superhero comics typically fail to represent the tastes of most androphile women, I gathered a collection of images and recommended artists from my correspondents that illustrate the sort of art they'd love to see more of -- but which there's sadly very little of compared to all the T&A fan-service targeted at straight men.
I had far too many recommendations to put in the article, so I've compiled the collection (and a few personal favorites) into a very special one-off post. The collection includes pin-ups, fan art, sketches, and some traditional superhero art from artists who aren't afraid to put a little male eye candy in their work!
It somehow doesn't seem appropriate that a comic about Marvel's heroes being infused with gamma radiation and each turned into their own variant version of the Hulk should evoke anything more complex than simple, visceral thoughts from me...
