Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
COMIC LEGEND: Marvel forced Frank Brunner to redraw a panel from Howard the Duck #2 because of it being a bit too salacious.
This wasn’t really worth its own legend, but as a BONUS legend, it’s perfect!
If you were a fan of Howard the Duck’s original title, you know how edgy it was for the time.
A perfect example of that is in Howard the Duck #2, where (thanks to the awesome site, The Gerber Curse, for this panel!) artist Frank Brunner drew Howard under the covers (in just his feathers) with Beverly Switzler…
The Comics Code disapproved, so the panel was re-drawn for the final edition…
Thanks to The Gerber Curse for the panel and the info!
Okay, that’s it for this week!
Here’s hoping Steve Gerber makes it into the Hall of Fame this year. He certainly deserves it!
Feel free (heck, I implore you!) to write in with your suggestions for future installments! My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
As you likely know by now, last April my book finally came out!
Here is the cover by artist Mickey Duzyj. I think he did a very nice job (click to enlarge)…
If you’d like to order it, you can use the following code if you’d like to send me a bit of a referral fee…
