Will Howard the duck be able to ditch the pants now that Disney owns Marvel?

I was just scanning in the black-and-white Howard the duck number two 1979 and I read the story where Howard is forced to wear pants. It was a bit of a swipe at Disney and it occurs to me that now that Disney owns Marvel Howards tailfeathers can shine once more.

I'd forgotten how good those black-and-white comics were. Gene Colon's are really came into its own with a larger format evil without color. In fact I'm not sure color would've helped because he did black-and-white so well.

Y'know, although the reason Howard's appearance had to change has now been made moot since Disney now owns Marvel, I very seriously doubt his look will be changed back.

Not only that, since the Howard the Duck movie is still to this day remembered as a massive bomb, I doubt Disney will do anything with Howard but ignore him.

Howard showed up in the last Marvel Zombies mini, teaming up with Dum Dum Duggan!

Still, that's an interesting question. Maybe when the Disney/Marvel crossover happens (and it will, sooner than later. Oh yes it will.), Howard and Donald will finally meet, no holds barred!

My money's on Howard. Now if it were a younger Scrooge McDuck...

Well he faced 'Scrounge' McDuck when he and Bev went to Duck World :) Those black and whites are fun to read. The only one I didn't like was the Dracula issue because of what happened to Harold H. Harold. But the series carried well from color to black and white.

How come Donald Duck never wears pants, but when he gets out of the bath or shower he always has a towel around his waist?

Decency.   Basic human decency.  LOL.

By the way, I feel certain that his occasional pop-ups has more to do with maintaining copywrite than with any great creator desire to do another duck story. Same for Brother Voodoo and a host of other one-shot wonders....

To this day I have no idea what they were thinking when they made the movie.

I dunno Donald is a cannibal, so I wouldn't put anything underhanded past him.
