Howard the Duck was created by Steve Gerber and Val Mayerik, first appearing in 1973's Adventure into Fear #19. It's a simple concept: first name, Howard. Last name, the Duck. But Marvel doesn't like to leave things simple, so they'll be making a major change to Howard's continuity on Wednesday as part of the War of the Realms super-mega-crossover event, as a story in War of the Realms: War Scrolls #1 by Chip Zdarsky and Joe Quinones changes Howard the Duck's name to… Howard Duckson?!
Behold, a preview from the issue below:
The issue barely spends a moment on this Earth-shattering change before moving on to the plot of the story, which sees Howard Duckson take on a case of a missing dog…
A lucrative case…
