I had almost forgotten: A week or so back when Steve Gerber passed away, I mentioned that I had done some Howard the Duck drawings. I scanned them in while I was visiting Tucson over the weekend...

Just a standard Howard to start with. I think I could be pretty happy drawing a Howard comic. I like his look...

This next one is a riff on an early HTD cover. Howard was bursting through the newspaper bearing the headline of his candidacy for the Presidency of the United States. I was a kid when the book came out, and I remember flipping it over to see what I was sure was going to be the same image from the reverse (bear in mind that this was a good ten or fifteen years prior to wraparound covers on mainstream books). I was so disappointed. So here's that cover from a suitable distance ...

AND the classic (to me anyway) Howard-as-Son-of-Satan. I always loved the crazy buck teeth he grew when he became the Fowl of Satan, or whatever it was he called himself ...
