Howard the Duck #2, by Chip Zdarsky and Joe Quinones, provides the fascinating narrative that explains how Howard the Duck found himself a part of the Collector’s massive holdings along with the irascible Rocket Raccoon. As the Marvel solicitation put it, "Howard’s first big case has taken him across the universe and landed him in the clutches of The Collector! But he’s not alone as the very popular Rocket Raccoon is a prisoner as well. Have you ever seen a comic book sequel to a post-credits scene in a movie? Well now you have."
Of course, as the comic’s cover illustration indicates, the other members of the Guardians are bound to be involved in the rescue of Rocket and Howard, though we will have to wait until April to find out exactly how they accomplish their mission.
