    As much as I love She-Hulk and Man-Thing, nothing could ever be enough to get me to buy a comic featuring Howard the Duck.

    I'm going to buy this one based on the presence of Frankenstein's monster alone. I mean, sure, I like Man-Thing, She-Hulk and Howard. Nighthawk's okay too. But we don't get to see Marvel's version of Frankenstein much anymore.

    The incongruity between Howard's comical appearance and his serious demeanor is what makes this, along with She-Hulk, a pull for me.

    Usually with marvel I root for the bad guy in just about any battle, but I like Howard and Jen together so I'll look at this.

    Default CBR: Montclare Assembles the "Fearsome Four"

    Well d@mn, just when I told myself I would not be sucked in to buying side Fear:Itself mini's, leave it to Marvel to put out a mini series to change my mind, a mini with Man Thing, Howard the Duck (not happy about Marvel characters not smoking, Howard the Duck without a cohiba, is like certs without the retcin ), She Hulk (Jennifer Walters), and Frankenstein's Monster, and Simon Bisely doing interior artwork. I'm sold.

    Damn, this looks like all kinds of awesome. Not familiar with Montclare but the ideas going on here and the artists are great.
    Support titles that need supporting. Quit buying, reading and complaining about comics you don't enjoy.

    I love Steve Gerber and I hope this series will bring some of that magic. Gerber remains the defining writer on Man-Thing and created Howard. He wrote Nighthawk in Defenders and later She-Hulk in the 80s. And while he never wrote Frankenstein monster he was famous for writing monsters such as the Living Mummy and Simon Garth the Zombie.

    We're given an article here about a series in which Howard the Duck, Man-Thing, and the Nexus of Realites all play significant roles and not a mention of Gerber by either the journalist or the writer of the miniseries. Good job CBR.

    On that note, I want to see how "Fear Itself" touches upon the Straw Man of the Fear Lords.

    Whereas for me it's, 'Not only do I hate She-Hulk and characters of that ilk, but in addition nothing could ever be enough to get me to buy a comic featuring Howard the Duck that wasn't written by Steve Gerber.'

    I'm surprised to read the comments that people are excited for this. I've actually met Brandon Montclare and he is a really nice guy, but this just sounds incredibly lame. And I agree that it was a huge miss by both CBR and Montclare to not mention Steve Gerber even in passing.

    If they charge $2.99, maybe I will pick up the first issue to support Montclare in his writing. But I'm sure they will $3.99, in which case I will certainly pass, and just pick it up in a couple of years when it lands in the 50 cent bins.
