Howard the Duck Saves Fear Itself

Fear Itself is improving all the time, first with Chris Hastings and Bong Dazo in charge of "Fear Itself: Deadpool" and now the announcement that Howard The Duck, She-Hulk, Nighthawk and Frankenstein's monster are all teaming up (?!) for a four-issue miniseries by Brandon Montclare and artists Michael Kaluta and Ryan Bodenheim. By far the strangest team we've ever seen, the four radically manic characters are going to unite in order to stop the strongest creature on the planet - Man Thing. Man Thing can burn any living thing which is fearful at the time of contact, making a Fear Itself/Man Thing connection into an obvious choice for a storyline.

But Howard The Duck hasn't been seen since his cameos in Secret Invasion, while Nighthawk recently tried and failed to set up a new Defenders team, Frankenstein's monster was upstaged by the glorious Frankencastle and She-Hulk's all over the place. This is mad. Absolutely mad. And we're starting to really ennjoy the prospect of Fear Itself as a result. Issue one is on sale in June. Here's the cover:

Looking forward to this. Howard the Duck also had a one-shot story with Spider-Man last year. It didn't seem to be well received, but I liked it.
