• Howard's big first case goes off the rails as he's pulled into investigating a NYC crime spree!
•  But this spree features a Very Special Guest Star!
•  We'll only give you one hint: they're a Marvel Comics character who has "died" before! Hope that narrows it down for you, True Believer!

    Having dipped slightly in quality last time around, I'm glad to inform you that Howard the Duck is back on form. Being fun, outrageous, and darn right clever to boot, the creative team more than outdo themselves, leaving me excited for the next installment. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long May 15, 2015

    Howard The Duck #3 is a bloody riot. Zdarsky and Quinones are on fire and they are a creative team to be reckoned with. This is the funniest comic I've read in forever and this series can't be missed. You've never seen seniors like this. Howard is amazing. Zdarsky + Quinones = Hilarity. You can't argue with math.

    We The Nerdy - Jose' Rodriguez May 14, 2015

    Comedy books, especially from the Big Two, aren't that easy to find. The overabundance of horror and sci-fi series can be a little overwhelming, so it's nice to sit back and enjoy a laugh courtesy of the “Howard the Duck” team. Also, I'll never get tired of that Spider-Man running joke that's been happening these past two issues. Read Full Review

    Howard the Duck #3 is a solid issue, and as unlikely a hero as Howard is, this comic adds a unique perspective to the Marvel universe. While Howard the Duck‘s humor may not appeal to everyone, the jokes hit more often than they miss. I can't wait to read more and see what madness is in store for Howard next. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Scott Southard May 18, 2015

    While Howard might not push the envelope as much as his past self, the current incarnation shows a side of him (and ourselves) that he (and everyone else) needs to constantly monitor and acknowledge. It teaches us to always endure, even if it's just enduring the banalities of life, and to rise up to one's potential and be that good person (or fowl) we know we can be. Howard the Duck reminds us that the world isn't always at stake, and that it's okay to let a little whimsy into our lives. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza May 15, 2015

    Taken all together, "Howard the Duck" #3 a fun adventure that flirts with being an all-ages read, just as the original "Howard the Duck" series did, but deep down, there's more to this story than funny animal comics. This is yet another feather (pun intended) in Marvel's publishing cap, an off-beat adventure that just so happens to pack comedy and action. Fans of "The Unbeatable Squirrel-Girl," "Rocket Raccoon," "Ant-Man" and "Hawkeye" will feel right at home with Howard. Read Full Review

    Howard the Duck #3, along with its back-up story with art by Spider-Gwen and Southern Bastards' Jason Latour, is yet another solid and entertaining issue of a series that has yet to hit its peak. Chip Zdarsky, Joe Quinones, and Rico Renzi are firing on all cylinders, yes, but Howard the Duck so far still feels like there are places to go and jokes to tell. Howard is a character whose schtick is often played out after only a few issues, but this series has avoided that trap by simply not forcing it. I can't wait to see what Howard and Tara get up to next because I know it will either be funny or ridiculous or some combination of both. With any luck, Howard the Duck will keep us entertained for as long as our hairless ape attention spans will allow. Read Full Review
