And he’s ecstatic. In his first interview since the series was announced alongside a slate of other Marvel animated shows, Smith talks about why he can’t ...

Howard the Duck (created by Steve Gerber) is probably the best-known — mostly for starring in a notorious ’80s flop — but I’ve also got a soft spot for MO...

I’m sorry, but I couldn’t wait until April 1 to report this story….Dan It has come to my attention that ARRL CEO Michael Howard is planning to construct a wall on the southern border of the ARRL’s Newington headquarters to prevent miscreant hams from entering the compound.

Willow was actually the first movie on which Howard received final cut, the director revealed at an American Cinematheque screening celebrating his...
