You all need to read Howard the Duck, 'kay? I was snort-laughing on the subway and it was embarrassing for everyone involved.

Tonight was the premiere of the new Howard the Duck series and naturally it was held at a bar. Writer Chip Zdarsky was on hand to sign this first issue as well as the second volume of his other major series, Sex Criminals.

I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to make it, since class runs late on Wednesdays but Chip would not hear of it!

When I got there I reminded him that he wasn't allowed to have any fun until I got there. He agreed and then we proceeded to do the Pulp Fiction dance. It was amazing and every bit as sexy as you think it was. He was also very impressed that I hauled ass from Scarborough to see him (this is a Toronto inside joke. Just trust me, it's funny).

He then drew me my very own Howard on my copy of Howard the Duck and a bonus penis on my Sex Criminals Vol 2.

He then wished me Godspeed on my journey back to the East side of Toronto. He was so sorry.

Anyway, why you should read Howard the Duck: it's the funniest comic I've read in a long time. There's She-Hulk singing along to Taylor Swift, a solid Uncle Ben/Spider-Man crack that made me almost convulse in my seat and a TRAINING MONTAGE. MONNNNNTAAAAAAGE!

Howard is working as a private detective and is hired to find a stolen necklace that was pilfered by Black Cat herself! His interactions with other Marvel characters are so friggin entertaining it's not fair.

Anyway, go read Howard the Duck. Your life will be so much richer for it.
