Marvel Team-Up #96
Issue(s): Marvel Team-Up #96
..so that he can preach against fads. He hates skateboards, hoola hoops, CB radios, disco, etc..
In the end, his anti-fad crusade becomes a fad itself, and he decides he needs to rethink things.
I think as part of a lawsuit threat from Disney, Howard is wearing pants in this issue...
...but after the crowd attacks him, he's nekkid (except for his gloves) for the rest of the book.
Again, seems like typical Howard to me (mind you, i didn't really like Gerber's Howard the Duck series very much).
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: The MCP place this between Amazing Spider-Man #208-209, but it's a context-free story. For Howard, the MCP place this between the first and second story of Howard the Duck Magazine #5. I've placed this entry directly before that one.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
Inbound References (1): showHoward The Duck, Spider-Man
Marvel stated in late summer 1983 that Steve Gerber was getting bcak on Howard the Duck in a "different format", but nothing came of it.

Kupperberg had been the final artist on the HOWARD THE DUCK newspaper strip.

Mickey Rodent stated in 1955 that Disney's funny animal characters can't remove their gloves, because they're "tattooed on." And besides that, without gloves a duck like Howard wouldn't have any fingers.

The title to this story could have been taken from the 1950 Elia Kazan film, featuring Richard Widmark as a doctor in the U.S. Public Health Service racing to prevent a pneumonic plague epidemic from spreading through New Orleans. It's notable for being the big screen debut of Jack Palance.
