Lena Dunham pens essay about surviving sexual assault

Lena Dunham describes being sexually assaulted by an Oberlin College peer in her nonfiction book, Not That Kind of Girland in an essay for Buzzfeed, she writes about why she chose to share that story.

“I was inspired by all the brave women who are now coming forward with their own experiences, despite the many risks associated with speaking out,” Dunham wrote. Those risks, she goes on to say, include facing people who demand “an unassailable narrative” when “the event itself is hazy, fragmented, and unspeakable.” READ FULL STORY

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.
