A Marvel Comic Will Expand on a Marvel Movie Post-Credits Scene

by: S. Scott Stanikmas

We all know the Marvel Comic Universe and the Marvel Cinematic Universe are two totally different beasts. One may influence the other, but they don’t directly affect one another.

Until maybe now.

In Marvel Comics’ new upcoming Howard the Duck series, fans can expect to see an explanation as to how Howard ended up in the Collector’s clutches (as seen at the very end of this past summer’s smash hit Guardians of the Galaxy).

The Hollywood Reporter nabbed the official synopsis of the story, which will take place in issue #2:

Howard’s first big case has taken him across the universe and landed him in the clutches of The Collector! But he’s not alone as the very popular Rocket Raccoon is a prisoner as well! Have you ever seen a comic book sequel to a post-credits scene in a movie? Well, you will now!

Of course, it won’t be a direct movie tie-in. But Howard is one of those characters that’s always been a little…looser with the rules. Kinda like Deadpool or DC’s Ambush Bug.
I’m intrigued. Howard the Duck has always been a cult favorite. Maybe Marvel Comics is looking to take the fowl detective a little more mainstream? Only time will tell.
