Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Howard the Duck with sound clips and images.
Howard the Duck is a comical hero from Marvel Comics whose comic book debut was in Adventure into Fear #19 in December of 1973. Howard the Duck is a anthropomorphic duck who is from another planet who was abducted and is dropped into Earth and has had several adventures (that are often highly satirical) and has worked with various Marvel Superheroes. Howard is a cigar-smoking crude mannered duck whom is quite strong and a master in the art of Quack Fu in which he was known for wanting to get back to his home world (and is rather unsuccessful at that) but over the years he seems to be content on Earth. Howard was the first Marvel comics character to received a Movie Adaptation (unfortunately it became a highly infamous critical and commercial bomb when it was released).
EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Marvel Universe VC section we take a look at one of Marvel's most infamous comical heroes... HOWARD THE DUCK!
Chip Zien- Yes I know the movie was very despised back then (and unlike other 80's movies the consensus for the movie is still not all that good) but I actually kind of liked Chip's work as Howard. Chip's somewhat nasally voice suited the role well as his performance does suit Howard's comical nature well. Say what you will about the movie but Chip's work on the role was not that bad really.
Kevin Michael Richardson- I actually rather liked KMR's voice for the role as his somewhat nasally voice with the New York accent does work with the role rather well. The only problem here is that Howard has a brief cameo but Kevin's voice and performance do fit Howard rather well.
Overall both of these guys did well with the role in their own way, while Chip had way more material to work with Kevin did some rather stellar work with what little material he had.
