That would be Tara Tam, the shapeshifting tattoo girl, who Howard met in the previous mini series that you should read, asap!

I've heard about Howard the Duck, mostly from the Nostalgia Critic's review of the movie. I'm gonna get this, I think.

She isn't an x-girl. She is a new character introduced in the last Howward the Duck series named Tara Tam. She has all of the same powers as a skrull after eating duck meat that was made out of a shape shifted skrull.

Mary Jane in Iron Man and Aunt May in Howard the Duck? Nice try, Marvel, but we still want Peter in the red and blue. No disrespect to Miles Morales fans.

Is the guy Howard is about to get into a fight with a reference to Soos from Gravity Falls? Because he looks way too much like him for it to be a coincidence.

@feartheliving: Please no, Spencer's nothing came before I started writing the series Ant-Man book is really tedious.

I hope Marvel leaves this book alone and does not force it to be the ultra zany gimmick book like its becoming with the nonsense that is Gwenpool

Say what? Ant-Man is neither tedious or all that zany. If anything Squirrel Girl fits the zany aspect and they're doing a cross over.

@feartheliving: I was talking about Howard when I said zany it has a good balance of humor and story and I do not want it to be forced to be the zany book with flavor of the months like Gwen Pool hijacking it.

As for Spencer's Ant-Man that book is very tedious in how it treated readers as idiots with the fact there was no canon that was put into that book. Cassie, has never made reference to being a young avenger, Darla is missing on to show up as an EX in the new relaunch. There is no show or tell things just happen and we are supposed to be fine not seeing them.

@br_havoc: Not mentioning something =/= didn't exist.

Just because they aren't bringing up his entire career in comics doesn't mean it didn't happen. Probably didn't want to overwhelm new reader and wanted to tell their own tale. I believe the Last Days issue mentioned his time in Future Foundation, but seeing as that's not the main point of the books it's not made to be a big deal.

All that being said I don't see how that book not referencing all Scott's background stuff would hamper Howard or vice versa if they did a one-off cross over.

@feartheliving: The issue with Spencer's Ant-man is that it has thrown away everything Scott grew from, What made him such a special character swept away to be a lovable loser who is now essentially Boomerang in many ways. Part of me feels that Spencer is just writing more Foes instead of Scott Lang.

My issues stem from all the character development that was lost in favor for something that has very little depth. Cassie seems deaged and if she has never done anything but be a high school girl. Also it was a weird way to start the book with it's best story it could of tell ( Cassie coming back) already being told in one issue that was horribly lazy.

The point I'm trying to make is Howard is a great book that does not need these crossovers of other books. His book is zany enough with some fun moments and the occasional heartfelt one, but now Marvel seems to want to launch flavor of the months in it or sweep it into crossovers with other books simply because they are the comedy titles.

Heh, "Trapped in a renumbering he never asked for." Perfect. I want that variant.

@br_havoc: On the bright side, it doesn't have anything to do with Howard. So I doubt it'll affect how Howard is made. Hopefully it's only 3 to 5 pages like the short second stories Howard often has, not a significant portion of the book.

@galacticfork: Very true still not happy about the dollar price jump but if Marvel has there way all comics will be 6 bucks soon enough.

@br_havoc: Waaah?? I didn't even notice the barcode (actually the last one still has the old price, so Gwenpool is probably jacking up the price). Crap.

Aunt May is only in it for an excuse to keep being cruel to Spider-Man.

@crimsonmist:

Totally agree. Doesn't look like Howard. Totally lacking Gerber's biting commentary. Wearing pants.

I figured wi Howard and Donald now both under the Disney umbrella, Howard could look the way he was INTENDED to look.

This book things may be a lot of things, but it ISN'T Howard The Duck!!!!

Enough already with this crappy played out space filler of a character. The joke was old 25 years ago and hasn't gotten any better in time. Marvel needs to stop killing trees for crap like this.

@luciferjonez: You probably weren't even born the last time Howard had his own comics... Heck I'm not sure if even your parents were around those 34 years ago when Gerber was still writing Howard.

@luciferjonez: Man, that's so weak it makes me laugh.

I've often wondered why people hate the movie so much. Sure it wasn't very good but I don't think it deserves all the hate either though there's good chance I've just forgotten how bad it was...

@sinikettu: sorry I didn't deem you worthy of well thought out witty retort. You really aren't worth the effort.

The movie sucked. from beginning to end it was a craptacular crapfest. Just because the character gets a 5 second cameo at the end of Guardians Disney decides to oversaturate us with HTD popping up everywhere. Waste of a tree.
