HOWARD THE HUMAN #1
SKOTTIE YOUNG (w) – JIM MAHFOOD (a)
– Spend a day with Howard, a private investigator and the only human living in city full of animals. But not, like, criminals and lowlifes. We’re talking elephants, apes, ducks and kitty cats. Catching a case, grinding a few gears, dodging some bullets and almost getting killed by an anthropomorchic monstrosity. It’s just another Monday for Howard the Human brought to you by Skottie Young (ROCKET RACCOON) and Jim Mahfood (MIAMI VICE REMIX).
HOUSE OF M #1

– But is Magneto’s control as all-encompassing as it seems? And what happens to a conqueror when there is no one left to conquer?
