What Am I Reading? [Howard the Duck]

ImageActually, it’s more likeĀ “What did I get for Xmas?”

Usually these days I’m buying and reading graphic novels; I’m just at a stage in life where I can’t afford much the time or money to collect individual issues. But this Xmas, I did have an individual issue on my Amazon wish list as a stocking stuffer: Howard the Duck vol 1, no 8.

It’s a bit of nostalgia for me. In 1977, my family moved from Texas to Wisconsin. It was a long drive north, and right before we left, I bought a stash of comics, mostly Marvel. Among them was this Howard the Duck where he ran for president. It was adult-themed and made an impression on me. (This comic is one reason why I gravitated to Cerebus duringĀ the High Society days.) Anyway, this was among the gifts Santa brought me this Xmas.

(Nearly finished reading Agents of Atlas, now up to Turf Wars. Also have Dark Reign to read, also among my Xmas presents this year.)
