Quack #1 - Frank Brunner art & cover

Frank Brunner
Quack v1 #1, 1976 - Frank Brunner creates a talking duck character not dissimilar to Howard the Duck. This pirate adventure is boldly drawn, consistent with some of his best bronze age works. Even in black and white, Brunner brings dimension and excitement to the issue (this story was later reprinted in Quack #6). His full color cover painting pays homage to Donald Duck'a greatest artist, Carl Barks. Other artists in this issue include Michael T. Gilbert, Scott Shaw, Ted Richards, Alan Kupperberg and Dave Stevens. This is number 1 of 1 Quack issues with Brunner art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Brunner or Quack issues. See also this blog's Brunner checklist or Top 10 Brunner issues.
