Check out this HISTORIC 1975 "FIRST ISSUE" BRONZE AGE action page, which was penciled by the great Frank Brunner, and inked by the great Steve Leialoha, from the story aptly titled: "Howard the Barbarian!" This AWESOME page features Howard with Beverly Switzler, Both drawn in 5 of 6 PANELS in Beverly's very first appearance, with both dressed as barbarians. Howard the Duck was a sensation at Marvel in the mid-1970s and remains a cult classic to this day. Created by iconoclastic writer Steve Gerber and artist Val Mayerik, Howard first appeared in the Man-Thing stories in Fear #19 (1973) and Man-Thing #1 (1974) before being spun off into his own solo adventures in Giant-size Man-Thing, appearing in issues #4 and #5 (1975). The popularity of those two stories, drawn by the great Frank Brunner, led Marvel to create a title revolving around Howard in Howard the Duck. This VERY first issue, also drawn by Brunner, created an early speculation run due to the character's popularity. Frank Brunner is a highly collected artist who is best known for his early Bronze Age work on his four Howard the Duck stories, which ran in Giant-Size Man-Thing #4 and 5 and Howard the Duck #1 and 2, as well as for his work on Doctor Strange.
