MARVEL TEAM-UP #96 (1980): Howard the Duck

Spider-Man and Howard the Duck fight Status Quo, who is basically a dude with a bald spot who doesn’t like all that newfangled stuff the kids are into these days. It’s a “get off my lawn” story.

Spider-Man also appeared in Howard the Duck to try to help sell the character, but let’s face it–Howard is a niche character.

So, Howard gets naked to try to sell issues.


They take down a religious scammer.

Kinda surprising to see a negative reference to Billy Graham.

Also: First ever reference to deez nutz?
