"I think the different tones make it more interesting! One of my favorite comics is the classic ARCHIE MEETS THE PUNISHER, which I enjoy more than, say, Wolverines meeting The Punisher, y’know? Howard is clearly the Punisher of our book, even though they differ wildly in their enjoyment of parks." -- Chip Zdarsky

'Out of the box” is the fun place to go. Ms. Marvel teaming with Simmons. Spider-Man teamed with—go Google him!—Mr. Rasputin. Sue Richards, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. I’m still trying to crack the Howard the Duck/Rocket Raccoon mission, but I’ll get there as God is my witness.' -- Mark Waid

"I don’t want to be attempting to be Steve Gerber because therein lies madness. I’ll go crazy. People would be like, 'Close, but no cigar!' A lot of the satirical elements were downplayed and I played up the popularity of Marvel properties lately. I’m putting in guest stars because the old comics really reflected pop culture at the time with a lot of satire. Nowadays, Marvel is pop culture. Everywhere we look, there’s like a new Marvel movie coming out." -- Chip Zdarsky

"There’s a friend for Howard (aw!) named Tara, a local tattoo artist who's a bit of a thrill-seeker because it wouldn't be a true relaunch without giving people the ability to call me a hipster." -- Chip Zdarsky

'The editor I worked with on a couple small things asked “have you seen Guardians of the Galaxy?” and I said, “Oh yeah, it was fun!” and he says, “Howard is at the end of that…” spoilers, by the way… and he says, so I think Howard might be a big thing now, we should do something! It became something like a game of chicken, where I didn’t know if I had the job or not. I would pitch to him and we would keep going back and forth about designs of the character, or artists. He asked if I wanted to do a cover and start writing a script. But… no one has told me if I have the job. Do I assume I have the job? I never had the moment where I was like “look at me! I’m writing Howard the Duck!” because I never had anyone tell me I had the job. Which is weird because I’ve written three issues.' -- Chip Zdarsky

"The funny thing about Howard is that he’s the most normal character in the Marvel Universe in a lot of ways. He’s just a guy. He’s a duck, but he’s just a dude. By contrasting him with Marvel characters like Spider-Man — who’s a grown man who puts on a skin-tight outfit and goes around punching people — Howard’s the character who will point out that that’s kind of crazy." -- Chip Zdarsky
