Howard the Duck

Fantasy artist and writer Frank Brunner (b. 1949) drew upon his best-known work for Marvel in the 1970s to create this poster for EarthArt Graphics. While Howard the Duck is literally the driving force in the image, it also features other characters for which Brunner was well known: Doctor Strange, Clea, winged Aragorn, Hookah-Smoking Caterpillar, Namor the Sub-Mariner, and Hulk.
