    Poor Howard! If he only knew what awaited him in Hollywood, he would turn his car around and drive B

    Opps! Let me do that again:

    Poor Howard! If he only knew what awaited him in Hollywood, he would turn his car around and drive Bev back to Cleveland.

    Seriously, if you told me in 1986 that in 2013 we’d have had that many cross over events, I’d have laughed. Then asked the person from the future if we had personal jetpacks yet.

    I like the cute dog on the back cover!

    “The mutant massacre is coming!”

    GOODY. death sells!!!$$$

    That banner about the Mutant Massacre seems so jaunty – hey kids read about a ghetto-ised subculture gets exterminate, Colossus kill someone with his bare hands and Angel gets his wings crushed and is driven to the point of suicidal depression.

    Wolverine fights someone named Sabretooth!

    Pay us for a book full of in-house promotion! Still 50 cents! Cheap!

    Forbush Man clearly already knows what a disaster this movie will be and is looking to make his exit as discreetly as possible…while desperately hoping that his possible movie deal is still salvageable.

    There was a time when I truly, and without irony, enjoyed the Howard the Duck movie, and I had pre-ordered the first issue of the movie adaptation mini-series from a shop in southern Maine since comic book stores hadn’t made it up to the central part of the state yet. Sadly, the shop screwed up my order and instead of that and a few other books I ordered, they sent me some stuff printed in… GET THIS… black and white!

    Ten year old me was incensed, I tell you. Particularly with this one weird book about these turtles who were ninjas, and they teamed up with some barbarian anteater or something? My discerning eye for quality knew immediately that this particular concept would go nowhere… how they had made it up to issue 8 was beyond me.
