Spider-Man / Howard the Duck -- September!
So I've been very remiss about keeping up this blog, and will write more about the new NAMOR series (starting in August!) soon. But for now, here's the full solicitation for SPIDER-MAN: BACK IN QUACK, out in September. Yes, I wrote the solicitation copy.
SPIDER-MAN: BACK IN QUACK #1
Written by STUART MOORE
Pencils by MARK BROOKS & JOE SUITOR
Cover by SKOTTIE YOUNG
Presenting two of Marvel's finest: Spider-Man and ... Cynical Duck (TM)? Yes, Howard the Duck's brain has been thoroughly scrubbed, his hard-edged humor carefully dulled down for maximum demographic acceptance. It's up to Peter Parker to set the duck straight -- but does the world prefer Howard this way? Guest-starring the villainy of SOOPhI, the utter cluelessness of Mayor J. Jonah Jameson, and the unnerving eroticism of "Swizzle," SOOPhI's whip-wielding corporate spokeswoman. So wrong it's ... well, no, it's still wrong, courtesy of Stuart Moore (NAMOR) and Mark Brooks (YOUNG AVENGERS). Plus: a tiny-size Man-Thing backup feature by Stuart Moore & Joe Suitor (MARVEL BREAKOUT)!
40 PGS./One-Shot/Rated A ...$3.99
