Howards Humble Beginnings...
So you thought Howard popped up in 1986 in a movie, eh?
WRONG!
For those of you that did NOT know, Steve Gerber created The Duck in the 1970's...and he originally made his first appearance in an issue of "Man-Thing".
Mr. Gerber simply put Howard in a few panels of the comic as a joke...just for fun...and he was 'disposed of' in the same issue.
Fans wrote in saying "You CAN'T kill off the Duck!" and so Gerber brought him back, to eventually star in his own magazine!
Howard was around for quite some time, and even ran for President in 1976! (see button on the left)
Below you can see some of my favorite appearances of "The Duck" (as Mr. Gerber refers to him) in the comics....
