Howard the Duck v2 #8 - Marshall Rogers, Frank Miller art


Howard the Duck v2 #8, 1980 – Howard the Duck takes on a Batman-like persona as "Duckman", a character that briefly appeared in the previous issue. Marshall Rogers reveals his quirky side without sacrificing artistry. Parodies of the Joker, Penguin, and Riddler make cameo appearances and seem intentionally reminiscent of Rogers' run on Detective Comics. Duckman’s debut on pages 38 and 39 is a dramatic entrance worthy of a typical superhero book, spanning the width of the spread. Interestingly, the issue also contains Frank Miller ad for Daredevil #168, touting Elektra’s first appearance (has this appeared elsewhere?). Other artists in this issue include Dave Sim, Gene Colan, Dave Simons and John Pound (cover). This is number 2 of 2 Howard the Duck magazine issues with Rogers art and/or covers
