Previously on Howard the Duck....

Howard and his on again, off again girlfriend Beverly took Future Howard with them to Ma and Pa's Pancake Plaza, to avoid cooking, and the chili in the back of the fridge. (Horror movie music plays) While they were out their apartment was broken into by Future Bong, who left out the window to the ally below.

Future Dr Bong was sitting in a grubby ally next to Howard's apartment, waiting for the duck to return. Sitting next to him was a homeless person with a badly twisted. Before dying he had tugged insistently on Bong's cape, referred to him as 'Charlie', and had ranted about government experiments living in the sewers. [I diagnose you with paranoid schizophrenia] He then twisted the man's head with a cruel snap. [You are cured].

* * *

Howard and Beverly watched Old Howard eat, both trying not to stare at the food stuck in the corner of his bill. "So...what's the future like?" Beverly asked loudly, and slowly. Wiping at the side of her mouth in an obvious way.

"About like it is now. Government trying to control everything, spandex wearing weirdo's punching bad guys." He paused and chewed thoughtfully. "There's more enforced curfews though. And way more robot attacks. They want to be equal citizens. Blah! Taking all the jobs..." He trailed off mumbling something, apparently forgetting the conversation.

The rest of the meal was quiet, as Old Howard had slipped into a sullen silence. The waitress Clarissa came over and dropped the bill without a word. "Don't look at me." Old Howard said. "I left my wallet in the future."

* * *

Later....

Howard had lucked out and found a parking spot close to his apartment. It was unheard of. He and Beverly walked a little ahead of Old Howard, partly to talk, partly because he was walking slow. "What are we going to do with him?" She asked, worried. She and Howard had it hard enough.

"Old age home?" Howard suggested.

"Costs money." Beverly replied.

"Really? What about the bad ones where they get neglected a little?"

"Ducky! We are not going to--" She started to say, before he was jerked into the ally way.

[Did you think you could evade Dr Bong forever?] The figure droned in a flat voice, as he lifted Howard off the ground. [Too long you have postponed your fate. The bell tolls for thee this day, duck].

"Your name...." Howard spat as Bong raised his clapper hand to bash Howard's face, "Is really, really, stupid."

To be concluded!!!

@wildvine: Dr Bong is bad ass in this. And Howard being manhandled in the sketch is cool. Keep em coming and we'll keep reading them. :-)

Yeah, sorry. I hit a block. Really just trying to get to the next scene.

Thank you. But are you sure its Bong?

@wildvine: No not since Howard died and then came back to life on the Legion of the Unliving List. I've tentatively put Bong on the villain's list but I'm unsure of his tenure there.

@wildvine: lol, you're forgiven this time, but if old you shows up, I may have to send her to the old age home where they get neglected a little. ;)

Really short, but I wanted to get out the new chapter before people lost interest.

A quote from a terrible movie...

This is hilarious, it's got a double-dose of that special Wildvine humor that I've grown to love, and also seems to be getting better and funnier as it goes on and you realize the jokes that have opened up for you.

  • You've managed to make a villain like Dr. Bong actually awesome.
  • You have a flawless grasp on Howard's persona of being a (ab)normal guy who gets into weird situations and just handles them how he can.
  • Your time travel leapfrog-loop is actually very interesting and, so far, consistent. So you're already a few steps ahead of Looper. <3

A couple highlights:

"Pair of ducks"

"You are cured"

"What about the bad ones where they get neglected a little?"

I've been really enjoying this, make sure to put me on the call-out list. ^___^

@4donkeyjohnson:

He's kinda a loser villain. Not as sad as Bob Doom, but still...

@wildvine: Catching up on my duck tales :) Wow Dr Bong is such a loser, but kinda cool for a bell-headed, time travelling bad guy! The time travel conundrum and how you fix it or don't is curious
