After all the crazy stuff that has been going in Howard the Duck's life, he decides to go visit and talk to Beverly, his beautiful and loyal human partner and friend. He wants her back in his life, but she is over with all the craziness that comes with him. And, as if to prove her right, a sentient Sentinel appears and tries to kill them. The end of the issue sets up the next story arc, as actress Lea Thompson comes in to Howard's PI office looking for help.
She was my main reason for picking this issue up, and I am happy that I did. I have a life long crush on her (she's still beautiful!), and I especially liked her 80's rocker look in the crappy 80s Howard the Duck movie. Quinones is a great artist, and he really captures her beauty in his art. The comic looks beautiful thanks to him. It's fun and bright looking (also his cover is gorgeous, just look at it at the top!), and his ability to draw superhero stuff in a really cool manner and draw girls really pretty. It all just hits the mark. The flashback stuff is amazing looking like an issue straight from the 70s!!!
Howard the Duck is THE best title that you are not reading. Get off your ass and change that, NOW! Me? I plan on getting some trades to catch up and can't wait for the next issue!
