I`m a duck
Also, it's a 10/10 issue
I know that guy.
old Howard the duck #1 had him sucked into a Conan-esque dimension by the Cosmic Calculator after attempting suicide, embarks on a quest, and ends with him and Spiderman fighting a giant pterodactyl. Lets see how this issue tries to top that.
hahaha fucking chip.
hahaha what the fuck
I don't know what I was expecting from this book, but it definitely stands against the originals
It started off really slow for 6 pages and really took off at a crazy pace
done, now someone storytime Ninjak because it was awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaasome
>How'd you hear about me?
>I went to see a movie and there you were on the screen!
My first reaction was to assume he meant that one, but then I realized he probably means the other one.
First time I"ve actually laughed out loud at a comic book, ever. This was hilarious, tasteless, and felt like I was reading one of those parody 4chan edits of Marvel comics (everything is illuminated, Muh Phoenix, etc.)
>20 cats that'll make you forget that you live in a world of super-powered wonder and horror
I guess that's why nobody seems to freak out about Howard nearly as much as they should, they look at these lists every day as a coping mechanism to try and keep a pretense of a normal life
Why does it feel like these joke-books (Ant-man, spider-man & the X-men, superior foes) are better than most other Marvel books? Even if you took out all the pop culture references I still think i'd take them over the current x-men or avengers books.
lot of buzzwords, buddy
joke books that are well written are usually better than other books when it comes to the big two because they have more freedom and get to make fun of super serious comics and shit.
With the exception of the new Harley Quinn book.
Howard Max #1 had Howard working in a junk yard with Bev and two stray animals, gay business executives jacking off to determine the next genetically manufactured boy band sensation, rants on religious fundamentalism,
Beverly finding out that she was secretly working for her ex husband, Dr. Bongand Howard getting turned in a four foot talking rat
Seriously, try and top that
>Spider-Man (Otter, best but in MU)
>Hating Smashing Pumpkins
>Hipster alternative girl that goes alongside Marvels new positive body image gimmick suddenly free to go and hang out with Howard
>Listening to Taylor Swift
>Laying into the Smashing Pumpkins
>Le Buzzfeed cats are great meme
>"Not even a Tumblr"
It's weird, but the only redeeming moment is Spider-Man. It's a wonder why they don't shove Chip on him instead of Slott.
There is no way that Spider-Man could ever afford an iPhone. And he's smart enough not to use Bing. Or get an iPhone.
>Thank God that body positive girl is here again.
Said nobody ever
>Overused jokes the page.jpg
FUCKING DIED. Book saved. Picking it up tomorrow.
Now he's meeting the Guardians, because he was in that film.
It really is a shame. I was really looking forward to it and the creative team is great. You can just tell editorial fucked it in the ass.
>There is no way that Spider-Man could ever afford an iPhone. And he's smart enough not to use Bing. Or get an iPhone.
He owns his own company. I think he has the money to buy a phone.
My god, this book... this is perfection...everything about this is brilliant and it's only issue 1, I hope this does gangbusters and makes Marvel take notice that these are the types of books they need to put out
Eh, too many references and what I attribute is tumblr style, little actual jokes.
Hipster / 10.
Ant-man on going is simply better. I think it is a bad book but I see why /co/ would like it but the reaction to this book is bizarre, it is like walking to someone laughing at an episode of TBBT.
Chip has an another book in the works at Image.
The only way to write a good cape book nowadays is to embrace the fundamental weirdness of the universe it's set in.
Thankfully, even DC seems to catch up on it with the promisies of the post-convergence stuff
No, because he isn't embracing what is the most comic book comic out there, books like these are what brings life into comics by showing publishers that jokes and gags aren't some type of disease, boos like this showcase what comics truly are.
>It's weird, but the only redeeming moment is Spider-Man. It's a wonder why they don't shove Chip on him instead of Slott.
I think it would get just as annoying as Slott's, but in a different way. It probably might have more funny moments, though.
>Hipster / 10
>someone laughing at an episode of TBBT
You don't understand what the first implies, or the second implies, or both.
I miss military man Starlord.
Swashbuckler Starlord only works for me in small doses--Like, it was ok in the movie.
But now he's some sort of space pirate and it's just... It's not the same character at all.
This is the first time I've really dealt with a character I love being changed so drastically due to editorial.
I want Chip to work on this idea with Fraction
and that was the moment I realized I wanted to see Howard the Duck as a Guardian of the Galaxy, trading quips with rocket and hassling cosmo.
All the sjw satire shit is falling flat. I'm as sick of tumblr as anybody, but I don't want to listen to writers make fun of them either. I'm just sick of hearing about it and I wish the industry would just shut the fuck up about it. That and the "born male and human" joke were TERRIBLE, and the worst part is that the "don't call me doll again" scene makes me think the writer's actually being serious about this faggotry.
Also, this hipster faggot with tats is a terrible character.
Despite the new book COMPLETELY missing the point of the Gerber series, and all the unironic tumblrfaggotry, a lot of the jokes were actually really funny. I'll keep reading the series for the time being.
Well the book is about a spider that helps a pig, so I'm going to say because she has complicated emotional hangups about Razorback.
hipsters are morons.
they were always shit. any rock after the 70s is garbage and any rock after the 80s is unlistenable. time to move on to modern genres, kid. also their best album was melon collie by far.
you're literally a faggot.
you have the worst taste ever.
Best book is superior iron man, faggots.
Event bullshit 2deep4me
It wasn't that bad.
>All New X-Men
Didn't read it, heard it's great
Oh honey, I'm sorry that your shit taste in music keeps you from appreciating one the best rock bands of all time.
Yeah, I'm a huge pumpkins fan and I kinda rolled my eyes at that bit, otherwise this book is off to an amazing start.
