Howard The Duck In: The Sleigh-Jacking

Wondering what Howard & Bev are up to this holiday season? Well, let's head on over to a snow covered Cleveland and find out. This section of the Howard The Duck newspaper strip appeared in 1977, and although it's not quite as sharp as some of the earlier stories ( like the one where Bev inherits a massage parlour owned by pensioners ), it's still prime Gerber and prime Mayerik. Plus it's always nice to see these characters again. Oh, and there's an elf with a gun.

  1. Did this actually run in papers? I thought the newspaper strip was done by Gerber and Colan?

  2. It was, but Mayerik took over towards the end, where this strip comes from. Nearly all the stories are online over at www.nemsworld,com/howard if you want to read them, and I suggest you all do, 'cos they're magnificent!

  4. Actually by the end it was Marv Wolfman and Alan Kupperberg. What might be the whole run is now online at http://ilovecomix.blogspot.com/2009/12/howard-duck-comic-strip.html
