This week in Heroes and Villains our selection of new Marvel Comics includes a grounded space hero, a legacy hero with a familiar name, new origins for an old hero, and one of my absolute favorite super-heroines who is one of Marvel’s oldest.

Get (To? Two?) Guarding With “Gamora #1” & “Star-Lord #1” On The Wednesday Run

gamora-1-coverI remember when the Guardians of the Galaxy film was first green-lit.

Howard The Duck #1 Will Quack You Up On The Wednesday Run

Howard the Duck 1 coverYou know what they say.

Yeah, you probably better know him as the snappy, martini-sipping, duck-billed alien during the end credit scene of last year’s blockbuster film, Guardians of the Galaxy.

Well, after a long spell away, Howard’s finally back in the pages of his own monthly comic book, appropriately titled, Howard the Duck #1.
