I'm not a fan of retcons, but it was cool. The whole book was really cinematographic and pretty interesting to read. Highly recommend to try.

An origin story of a father of a hero. Why not? So far so good. Not much happened during the first issue, but I doubt the story has much to say anyway. At least much new to say... But it reads fine and the art of Carmine Di Giandomenico is quite cool here, to my surprise.

Not a bad comic book overall, but it had much more potential... I must admit, it's no surprise Howard barely got his own ongoing series.

It tries so hard to be funny... And I really want to believe it is... But I don't know, it's too silly for my taste. The 2015 volume has pretty much the same atmosphere, but it finds success in delivering it.

It was really silly overall, but a lot of fun too. Hm... Not bad at all. The art is too simple, but I love how the Duck is portrayed here. But this MODOK... Who isn't a MODOK, but the way... His design is pretty bad and I don't know if his existence will even be justified... But let's see.

It had potential to be a really solid Howard the Duck story, but it was too chaotic, jumped from an idea to idea without even giving a chance to explore any of them a bit more. R-rated content was either fine or was here just for the sake of being here. When Steve tried to be edgy enough to justify the comic getting the Max logo, everything was instantly becoming boring and nonsensical. Yeah, yeah more

Okay, it was actually a nice final issue, even if it might be insulting to some... I don't know, everything that was shown here feels like a dumb joke, but I liked to see Howard actually meeting the God.

Uh... Was it progressive or insulting? Anyway, felt pretty boring and dumb overall. Also the artist was changed for some reason... The new one isn't really worse, maybe even better a bit, I can't decide yet.

It's a bit disgusting and overall too weird, since it's Marvel MAX (and Howard is the last character you'd expect to get an R-rated series), but... It's still better, than I expected. And it's only a beginning. I'm glad pretty much everything was already explained here without the unnecessary mysteries. Hm, the issue leaves me wondering what then could be the next 5 issues about. The R-rated conte more

This book is still a lot of fun to this day. Highly recommend to read it, it's a bit silly and naive at some times, just like it should have been. The atmosphere is great. Each issue is a separate story and most of them even kinda expand the original X-Men adventures.

And that was a really great issue! A bit too childish, rather in a manner of Marvel Adventures, but it's about teen X-Men, so why not... Either way, I really love to see other heroes fighting Spider-Man's villains, it definitely doesn't work that way for me, when, for example, Spidey fights X-Men's villains or etc. Plus the interaction between the team members was great here, the chemistry was cap more

It reads fine, but the story itself is rather weird. Man, I bought the TPB of this series a long time ago and I barely remembered anything now... Guess it was too many years since the last time I've read it. Maybe the next stories will prove to be more memorable for me. At least I think I liked this book back then...

Nice special. Some stories here are one-page funnies (and they're not really funny), others are long and not bad at all, but they don't feel really interesting or important. The one with Dragon Man reminded me of that issue of the Spectacular Spider-Man Adventures where Spidey was in a similar situation and that was the best story of the issue.
