This is one of my all time favorite comicbook covers.
The cover to Uncanny X-Men 141 by John Byrne and Terry Austin
Image wise the Fantastic Four have always been one of my favorites. Having said that I have to admit that I don’t think that I have read more then 20 of their comics in my whole Comic reading life…
You can expect to be seeing a whole lot more of these guys show up here. I have tons of these… Of course most of them are in the toy box and are played with by littleduck and I… but there are some that just live on the desk.
I know I could probably get in trouble for saying this, But I really liked the Howard the Duck movie. Which makes me one of maybe ten people who admit that… altough in secret I think that the number is much higher.
I was also a big fan of the Steve Gerber comic as well. Howard was just plain cool, and well come on… He is a DUCK. So I thought it was really cool that they where releasing him as a figure in the Marvel Legends line. The problem was that he was going to be a pack in with the Silver Surfer and I just couldnt bring myself to pay that much for another Silver Surfer figure at Marvel Legends prices.
A while later a friend, Bills, who had bought one was getting ready to get rid of some stuff at a con and Howard was one of the items. So he was nice enough to let Howard come and live on my desk…
