Marvel Announce Howard The Duck Omnibus

Get down, America! From the far reaches of Duckworld – he has returned! That’s right, the Master of Quack Fu takes center stage when the Howard The Duck Omnibus Hardcover returns for a brand new printing!

Created by Steve Gerber and Val Mayerik in 1973, Howard the Duck would go on to become a staple of the Marvel comics of that era.

Strap in for wild ride that celebrates the best of the foul-mouthed fowl when the duck comes home to roost in October for a new printing of the Howard the Duck Omnibus Hardcover!
So what do we think, Consumers? Is Mr Duck about to step out of the shadows and become a big hitter? Since the awful film from the mid-eighties, he has only really featured as comic relief in the Lego Marvel Superheroes game or in the cartoons on Disney XD.
