Howard the Duck v1 #1, 1975 - One of the most original bronze age characters, Howard the Duck was conceived by writer Steve Gerber. He first appeared in Fear #19 as a supporting character, but soon graduated to back-up stories in Giant-size Man-Thing. Frank Brunner, the artist on those tales, was the natural choice for this self-titled series. His fine lines and detailed shading bring depth and a sense of realism to an otherwise cartoonish character. Steve Leialoha reinforces this with his supple inking. Brunner's artwork is enjoyable and entertaining, setting a high standard for the character. This story was later reprinted in Marvel Treasury #12. To increase sales, Spider-man's guest appearance is flaunted on the cover. This is number 1 of 2 Howard the Duck issues with Brunner art and/or covers.
