We ran a piece yesterday looking at the DC Comics reinvention of Top Cat by DC co-publisher Dan DiDio and Phil Winslade. In which a Top Cat and Benny The Ball from a fully cat-anthropomorphic world escape into the DC Universe and bump into Batman.
I read comments that this was very familiar territory, to Steve Gerber's original plans for Howard The Duck. And, indeed, Phil Winslade had a successful and memorable run on the character.
But just in case there is any doubt, the preview appearing in the Adam Strange/Future Quest Annual #1 next Wednesday features this scene…
"Howard And Buck"…. yeah, they know what they're doing.
