Get Down, America! Howard the Duck For President! FOOM Cover! Gene Colan!

Click below to enlarge this fabulous 1976 FOOM cover! From the days of the Howard the Duck '76 presidential campaign, here is a fantastic Gene Colan-drawn (inks by Steve Leialoha) wraparound cover! Can you guess why Gene included Nick Fury, The Thing, and J. Jonah Jameson in the image with Howard?

not to mention my personal fave, Pip the Troll, who Leialoha had just finished inking over Starlin in the Warlock book!

I think those characters were all together because of their collective love for cigar-smoking! Can you imagine that on a cover nowadays? BTW there's a fantastic Steve Gerber interview in that issue, well worth a look for Bronze Age Marvel-ites.

Yes, read that Gerber interview and imagine such a candid interview in ANY mag of today (let alone a house organ)! VERY frank and honest!

Yes, they're al smokers of the day!
