Marvel announces 'Howard the Duck' by Chip Zdarsky and Joe Quinones

Guardians of the Galaxy was great and all, but how about that post-credits scene? You know, the one with the anthropomorphic duck? What’s his deal?

Glad you asked. Created by Steve Gerber and Val Mayerick, Howard the Duck is one of the strangest and most subversive characters in the Marvel canon—that unfortunately is mostly known from a terrible film in the 1980s. But, as the old saying goes, the road to redemption starts after the credits of a blockbuster movie—and Marvel is bringing Howard back in a big way. This Spring, the publisher will launch Howard the Duck, a new ongoing comic-book series by Chip Zdarsky and Joe Quinones in which the talking duck from another planet sets up shop in the Marvel Universe as a private investigator.

Fans of Sex Criminals already know that Chip Zdarsky is one of the funniest people in comics, and Joe Quinones’ fun, clean artwork is a great fit for the off-beat comedy of Howard. To get a feel of what to expect when the book launches, EW interviewed Zdarsky and Quinones about the series.

In this week's 'Polished,' multi-hyphenate Emily Gordon keeps the plates spinning

Emily Gordon doesn’t fit an easy descriptor: She was a couples counselor for years, but now writes (she has a book in the works), co-hosts the Indoor Kids podcast with her husband, Kumail Nanjiani, and co-produces the immensely popular Meltdown stand-up show in Los Angeles (and its Comedy Central sibling). She has a lot of irons in the fire, which means she and longtime friend Jamie Lee had plenty to talk about in this week’s Polished.

Jim Davis talks 'Garfield' origins, holiday specials, and calls Garfield 'a human in a cat suit'

Jim-Davis_612x380.jpg

Cats have invaded every corner of modern pop culture, from Internet memes to Taylor Swift’s life—but there’s one quintessential feline who’s been a mainstay for generations. Jim Davis’s Garfield has made lasagna and sarcasm synonymous with cats for over three decades, appearing in comics for 2,100 newspapers worldwide and 200 million readers (not to mention TV series and feature films).

In a nostalgic reissue, Davis and his Garfield empire, Paws Inc., have compiled five Garfield holiday specials into one DVD: Garfield’s Halloween Adventure, Garfield’s Thanksgiving, A Garfield Christmas, Garfield on the Town, and Garfield in Paradise. To commemorate the occasion, Davis spoke to EW about Garfield’s human-like mannerisms, growing up with 25 cats in Indiana, and what he really thinks about Mondays. Oh, and in case you were wondering: He’s a lot more like Garfield’s friendly owner, Jon Arbuckle, than the timelessly wry kitty.
