    But ultimately, it's not about twists or continuity that makes this issue of Howard the Duck great. It's taking a character who is typically known for his surface-level high concept and occasionally grating persona and digging deeper, showing that this duck may have a lot more in common with his readers than we might typically expect. By casting Howard through the lens of someone who, despite the distance and recriminations, has and always will love him, we wind up discovering there is a lot more to this wisecracking waterfowl than just his absurdities.

    If you thought the love between a man-duck and his estranged companion a thing of pure beauty, well you might be right. But it's also very boring. This issue is an awkward back-and-forth between a narcissist and a dilettante, and I'm not sure whose side I care about less. The artwork is really solid throughout, though there's not much of interest to draw until the final panel. I enjoyed the flashback scenes done in the pulp paper comics style, a Marvel mainstay. And I like it every time I see it! Read Full Review

    I haven't read all of the original Howard comics and magazines, but I've read a few and this was a touching reunion with Bev that felt like old times when the Iron Punisher showed up. That weird sentinel had questionable motivation, why would he switch from targeting just mutants to all superheroes? Is it because Marvel white-washed Scarlet Witch so that she's not a mutant anymore? Howard and Bev talk a lot about their friendship in this, that's a bit of a white-wash too, let's not kid ourselves, they were much more than just friends. I think Howard should respect Bev's wishes, but I wouldn't be surprised if he visited her on the long weekends for a booty call.
