Jamison Dion aka WolverineBurger has been a player in the underground toy and associated nerd scenes for over a decade now – First coming to prominence with Geekenhaven Studios that he runs with his friend and creative partner TDAWG. With Geekenhaven releasing toys, comics and more to much acclaim since 2013 or so.

Recently Jamison launched the Pogs, Weed, Cards, Macaroni & Cheese (PWCM&C) zine, which harks back to the fun and freewheeling zines of the 1990s. With PWCM&C having so far covered topics such as the origins of P0GS, Jamison’s weed reviews, Garbage Pail Kids, the Inline Hemp series of trading cards, the 1996 Wynonna Earp comic series and Kraft Dinner NHL collectibles.

Along with his own creative endeavours, Jamison has also been a collector and dealer of underground pop culture for most of his life. With many esoteric items having passed through, or currently in his hands.

Wanting to get to know Jamison better and find out more about his collection and current projects, we sent him some questions to answer over email.

City, State and Country you’re from?

Calais, Vermont, USA.

Please describe some memories from the stages of your life noted below:

* Age 5 – beginnings:

Many of my best early memories are all about pop culture. My mother taught me to read before school so I read anything I could get my hands on and watched or listened to anything around me.
My parents didn’t really censor much so I picked up a lot.

Cartoons of all eras old and new were sacred, and I got very into comic books and cards, not just the way most kids do, but as a serious collector. I even learned my way around the secondary market, selling off things I didn’t want anymore at our annual summer lawn sales to finance whichever game or toy my parents weren’t going to buy me otherwise.
As my mom is fond of recalling, most of my customers were adult collectors impressed that my stuff was all in such good shape, not other neighborhood kids – and I knew what my stuff was worth and made them pay it.
I sometimes made more than my parents at those sales.

Jamison as a kid.

* Age 10 – continuations:

When I was 10 we moved out of the small city and onto a dirt road a half hour away near my grandparents. It put me in a different school, and only about a year later my grandfather passed away, so this was a very difficult time for me. I retreated more into fantasy and only had a couple real friends.

I was crushing adult novels at a college level by that point, my favorites being the likes of Stephen King, Dean Koontz and other things some adults told me I was too young to read, and a lot of old science fiction. I started playing Magic: The Gathering the year it came out and was playing at tournament level in middle school and this helped me find some more friends, but not as much as when I started smoking cannabis at age 12.
I realize that sounds horribly young to many people, but I really do think it helped me figure out a lot about who I was – before cannabis I was just going through life and absorbing everything without really thinking it over. It allowed me to slow down my thoughts enough to process them and I’ve realized as an adult that I was learning how to self-medicate problems that were never even diagnosed.

While I got in no small share of other trouble back then, the only negative about cannabis was that my parents and teachers didn’t want me smoking it. I continued to get decent grades however, and my creative energy was growing – I did a lot of writing and drawing at and away from school. I got away with a lot of unruly behavior because I could always hold up the argument that I was still right on track to where I wanted to head, going to college for an English degree to go work for a magazine or as an editor or something until one of my more creative projects made me rich and successful.
That’s how I had it all planned anyway.

* Age 15 – getting serious:

It was around this time that my interests in sex, drugs, rock and roll came to a peak – and stayed there ever since.
To be completely honest I only survived the next several years with a lot of dumb luck. I started my first zine in freshman year of high school, called Dependent Society, the tagline was “Punk, Politics & Pissing People Off”. In the second issue I compared high school to nazi Germany and pissed off some of the local elder peace-punks. I considered that a huge win. It evolved into a small record distro as well, and lasted 8 issues in print before it went to an online format, back in the days of Angelfire sites – all from my bedroom.

I had a lot of fun back then, but I’m not sure how I made it to graduation through a haze of drinking, new drugs, and constantly driving up and down the east coast for the shows I peddled my filth at. I kept my grades up too, keeping up appearances at school and my part-time job didn’t seem very hard compared to all the other stuff I had going on in my head.
When I did get to college, it all fell apart pretty quick. At home I was used to freedom and in the dorms I was closely monitored and singled out quickly as a source of potential problems. I mean, they were right, but it was discouraging. My style of life wasn’t congruent with school anymore, so I dropped out at the end of my first year and decided to try my luck on a less traditional career path…
…and keep doing a lot of drugs.

* Age 20 – young adult:

Surprisingly, I didn’t find a lot of opportunities back home. I cruised from one job to another, in pretty quick order I tried roofing, the local comic book shop, production at the Cabot cheese factory, overhead door installation, and worked one position or another at almost every restaurant in town. I wasn’t really happy with any of it. I was still creating, and collecting, but none of it seemed to be going anywhere, I wasn’t really going anywhere.
I did a few zines as 1-offs that barely sold, and tried my hand at fine art, but couldn’t get a show or sell a single painting to save my life, I eventually burned my paintings in the driveway one afternoon, and the fire department came and put it out and gave me a warning while I drank whiskey from a plastic mug.
I sold a lot of pot, and when selling a lot of pot in a small town started getting sketchier I stopped, and invested the money into a whole inventory of collectibles. Though I’d been selling things here and there on ebay for a few years already, I started an online store in earnest. Soon I was making better money there than I had selling weed. The funny thing is now weed is legal and all over the place in my state and one couldn’t really make a living doing it that way now, while the collectibles market has treated me very well over the years.

* Age 25 – adult mode:

In my mid-20s I came back to Vermont after a couple years in New York with my ex-girlfriend – it ended pretty abruptly and I landed back at home even more directionless than when I’d quit school. That’s when I met TDAWG though – and shortly after we moved in together, we founded Geekenhaven Studios, for both of our creative endeavors.
The next years were some of the happiest and most creative of my adult life. I had discovered the designer toy scene years earlier as a collector, but with TDAWG’s nudging – I started customizing, and they did as well. We learned the art of resin casting and before long we dove head first into the world of gallery shows and conventions. We exhibited at NYCC 2013, with our friends at Imagination Asylum and Ramapageo Industries, premiering TDAWG’s Cry of the Echosphere, our resin line of Glyos-compatible heads and accessories, alongside custom painted sofubi by both of us and the only ever release of our mascot, Sickophant.
I met many of the friends I’d been talking to online for years, and finally began to network with the other designers and distributors who could help make big things happen for Geekenhaven. It was all very fun, but also very stressful. My anxiety grew with our reputation and I began to overthink every decision, rather than simply enjoying the ride.

Jamison in his 20s.

* Age 30 – meanderings:

After the high of NYCC and some small success stories, I quit my day job and made a go at making Geekenhaven Studios a full time business – an experiment that only lasted about 6 months.
Ultimately, I blame myself for the failure, at that point I still equated art with easy money, which it never was to begin with and I’m not sure why I ever had that idea. I didn’t put much into it, so I didn’t get much out.

I started to become discouraged with the lifestyle of an artist/hustler for the first time, but I’ve never really been anything else so I didn’t know what to do.
The way I saw it, we didn’t have the resources to make it to the next level of getting Geekenhaven out of our small apartment. This wasn’t completely untrue but I let the depression consume me instead of finding a way to get there anyway. I stopped working on toys, I stopped creating almost completely, just working a new job in a local deli, selling collectibles to cover growing debt, drinking too much beer every day and neglecting or abusing the people I cared about. One abandoned project after another until I finally stopped pretending I was working on them.
I wasn’t doing well, and my relationship, Geekenhaven, none of it was working out and I really just stopped caring for awhile. This is all pretty recent so I’m still sorting out just exactly how things went downhill so fast but they did, and my self-destructive behavior was at the root of it.

* Age 35 – fully formed:

It took longer than it should have to figure out my life was falling apart. I’d come back from hitting rock bottom so many times and different ways through the years it had become almost comfortable down there.
I had finally left hard drugs completely behind a few years earlier, and was making strides to moderate my daily alcohol consumption, but it was just the first small step to sorting out the mess inside my head. The first time I tried to take a day off drinking, I got the DTs and had to have one beer just to stop shaking. This is where I’ll again praise the influence of cannabis – without that I never would have been able to quit all the other things I’d started.
After the 2020 quarantine, I stopped drinking completely and resigned to start living better. At time of writing, it’s been four months, and I’m creating again.
That’s what my new zine PWCM&C is all about, artistic healing and the freedom to make anything – with a healthy dose of nostalgia for a simpler time when we were younger and the problems of the world didn’t matter as much as what cartoon was on TV.

I don’t know which bigger project will be next, but right now I feel better than I have in many years, more confident than ever before, and totally ready for the next stage.

Writing, Art and ‘PWCM&C’ Questions

When and why did you first become interested in writing, toys and everything creative?

At the very beginning, it just seemed natural.
As a young kid, I stayed to watch the credits, I learned creators names, and constantly weighed it all as critically as I could at that point. I was very aware of the people around us creating these wonderful worlds and I wanted to contribute however possible, I never wanted to do anything else.

… and any pivotal moment(s) / influence(s)?

I find so much beauty and meaning in the things us fucked up humans create, on a constant daily basis.

Early on though the Garfield comic strip was maybe one of the first things I ever read on a regular basis, and the original Garfield & Friends cartoon show has a surprisingly dark sense of humor that definitely influenced me. The TMNT and Ghostbusters toys grabbed my attention as a fan of the shows and I did my best to collect them all. Star Wars was huge for me too, I dove really deep into the Expanded Universe lore through the 90s.
I never had a chance not to be a nerd.

Please explain the who, what, and why of ‘PWCM&C’?

Pogs, Weed, Cards, Macaroni & Cheese is all of the zines I conceived over the last several years but failed to deliver, combined into one unwieldy monster. I needed an ongoing project to dust off the cobwebs creatively, and zines have always been one of my favorite outlets.
It carries a lot of influences from everything I love, with the nostalgia filtered through the grimy lens of real-world experiences. I want it to be brutally honest, capturing youthful enthusiasm and dripping sarcasm equally well.
I really hope it makes people laugh, or feel anything really.

I made it monthly so I would have no choice but to keep working, because that’s what I need right now. It’s going to continue until bigger, more attractive projects are getting in the way and there’s just no time for it. If that never happens I’ll just keep making this thing until I physically can’t.
I’m sure it will change, grow, morph and mutate over the months and years – I’m counting on it and I hope to bring a small army of artistic warriors into the fold for content and covers.
I liked the idea of doing two covers for every issue because some people love variant covers on magazines or comics and some people get really cheesed off about it for no good reason.

(Issues 2 and 3 of Jamison’s zine – Pogs, Weed, Cards, Macaroni & Cheese aka PWCM&C.)

What is the current status of your old brand – Geekenhaven Studios – that you ran (run?) with TDAWG?

Geekenhaven is active again!
It did sit in limbo for a few years as we winded down on toy projects and branched out into other mediums. TDAWG is also a professional videographer and burlesque dancer (as Domini’que Anjou), which was taking up a lot of their time, and I had been focusing more on buying and selling collectibles while the market has been very active and profitable, but it’s being revived now.

PWCM&C is under the umbrella, and TDAWG has finished the long-awaited Chapter 2 of their sci-fi story Cry of the Echosphere. There will be more resin toys for CotE as well, and we just got some big boxes of vinyl awhile back from Tenacious Toys that will be customized and start trickling into our new online store very soon.
Before the pandemic we were doing the small but terrific Vermont convention circuit and we’re hoping to continue doing events in the Northeast now that they’re starting back up.

In your many years running Geekenhaven – what are some of your favourite objects that you have released?
… and please tell us a bit about each of them.

[Please also include photos of them.]

Cry of the Echosphere Series 1-3 – I’m so proud of these and everyone who helped this come to fruition, and grateful to everyone who supported the series past and present.
We still get messages asking if there are any leftovers and while the answer is no, we are planning to continue the CotE toyline soon, as new chapters are headed for publication.

Sickophant – Our official Geekenhaven mascot, but so far tragically underused, we made about 50 of these for NYCC 2013 and it took a few years to sell them all.
I’d like to bring him back around for upcoming projects, in print and toy form.

Vinyl customs – I can’t really pick a single favorite from either of us, TDAWG and I both love to paint vinyl – and we are fortunate to have some great connections around the world that has helped us get our hands on some rare stuff.

If people wanted to work with you or buy some of your wares – how should they get in touch and where should they visit?

TDAWG and I have an Etsy store where you can buy all of our custom toys, zines and other releases.
Many of those are also available on Ebay – along with any collectibles I currently have for sale. There is new stuff going up every week!

Any upcoming projects you would like to mention?

I’m gonna just plug Cry of the Echosphere again.
There are new issues and toys in the works already, I’m so thrilled to see this continuing after laying dormant for a few years.

Collecting Questions

How and why did you first get interested in collecting?

I started keeping anything that caught my eye as soon I had the motor skills to do so, but a defining moment that I can recall happened in 1989 when I was 5 years old.
My parents came back from a weekend trip with a gift, one of those sports card collector kits with a stack of wax packs, a copy of the current Beckett price guide, and a 3-ring binder with enough pages for everything in the kit and then some. I think it was supposed to keep me busy for a few hours while I put it all together but it kept me busy for the rest of my life.
I brought the binder upstairs after I’d organized everything and put all my other trading cards into it, I think before that I had a shoe box, like some kind of animal. There was something about the mylar pockets, the price charts in the Beckett guide detailing information on sets made long before I was born, it was all very fascinating.

Between that and my older cousin who was already getting me into comic books and the original trilogy Star Wars toys, I was learning that this stuff was valuable and should be protected while most kids were still just playing with it.
I did both, sure, but it added another depth to it all from the beginning.

… and what were the first objects you collected?

Trading cards were big in my neighborhood.
The store down the street from my house had two racks of candy and a rack of trading cards right next to the soda aisle. That’s where I went with any loose change or dollar bill that my parents were foolish enough to leave around the house. I even saved up money from chores to buy those black marker-striped remainder boxes of Garbage Pail Kids and other non-sports from a vendor at the flea market. I was 7 when I completed my first set, 1990-91 NBA Hoops Basketball. Comic books, toys, video games, magazines, it was all there too but it was the cards that I first started getting obsessive about.

What do you currently collect?
…and what is it about those objects that so interests you?

I still collect a little bit of everything, and being in the buy/sell business makes it easy to accumulate a lot of random stuff because it’s a good long term investment.
In recent years though, I have narrowed my focus some on what I consider my personal collection. Wolverine and the X-Men have been a big influence through my whole life. Wolverine is a character I relate to very much, and because I appreciate a good challenge as a collector, there is ALWAYS something new to find and I’ll never get bored hunting new stuff and old grails.
I also collect Mad Magazine and it’s assorted knock-offs like Cracked, and underground comix mainly from the 60s-80s. Those were all very instrumental in helping me grow from juvenile delinquent to adult delinquent.
I still collect all kinds of trading cards too, but I tend to focus on specific characters or players/teams, or finishing a particular set or rainbow one at a time, that way it stays manageable.

I sold off a lot of my toys in recent times, they just took up too much space. I have one cabinet at home full of designer resin and vinyl stuff but most of my older action figures are in storage now.

I have a relatively small but very refined collection of rare heavy metal, punk and hardcore albums.
I don’t even own a turntable or cassette player anymore but I still buy pieces occasionally and lock them away just so I have them if free music ever disappears from the internet, and because they are albums that mean a lot to me and artists I want to support.

Yes, I do collect POGs too, not very actively but when I see one that really catches my eye or a good deal on a small lot of older or obscure ones, I’m right on it.
I’ve also got some boxes of stickers and t-shirts that I’ve carefully saved over the years and most people don’t believe me when I say those are worth almost as much as my Wolverine comics, but it’s true.

What are the top 5 items in your collection?
… and why do you love each of them so much?

[Please include photos or drawings of them.]

Alvin Plush.
I’ve had this since I was 2 and carried it almost everywhere until I was about 6. After that, Alvin has always had a place on a shelf or dresser somewhere. Having always been a seller as much as a buyer, I didn’t actually end up keeping a lot of my actual childhood things, rather I’ve replaced most of them once or twice over the years.
It’s always been comforting to have this guy around.

John LeClair signed card.
I enjoyed hockey a lot as a kid, playing and watching it. I got to see John LeClair play his very first game on the ice with the Canadiens, my favorite team. It was a pre-season game against the Whalers, and while I got some cards signed there, he didn’t have any cards out yet to sign at that point. He went on to help them win the Stanley Cup and I got to meet him at a signing later that year and get his rookie card autographed.
Again, I really don’t have a lot left from when I was a kid, so while this doesn’t have a lot of monetary value, I’d sell all of my most valuable cards for pennies before I let this go.

Hulk 340 International Set.
Todd McFarlane’s Hulk 340 is one of my favorite issues and when I ended up with a few foreign editions alongside my US copies, I decided to try and get every printing of that cover from around the world. I knew that it was going to take some work just to identify what was out there, and indeed it took me weeks of exhausting internet resources and talking to veteran international collectors just to get my initial checklist completed, fortunately I also secured several more books in the process.
It took 7 years to get all of them, and twice I thought it was finished before finding another obscure book soon after.
It’s been over a year since I last identified a new variation though, so I am fairly certain this is the only complete set in the world right now. I love it even more than my first appearances of Wolverine in Hulk 180-182. While those are valuable and totally essential, they aren’t rare at all, I just needed to save up the money. This set took SEVEN YEARS and came from different places all over the world.

Jerry Garcia MADs.
I just purchased these last year and it’s still kind of surreal to me that I own 3 early issues of my favorite magazine that belonged to Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead. They’re a band I’ve always enjoyed and respected even though my tastes usually lean towards heavier stuff.
Jerry was a lifelong fan of comic books, especially the EC titles of the 50s including MAD and Tales from the Crypt. At an auction recently that included one of his guitars, several lots of his comic books were up. I couldn’t afford to bid on those, but kept my eye out on ebay and the EC groups for months after for resellers, and ended up scoring all of these cheaper than I’d expected to. The market was saturated with them for just a hot minute, but they all sold fast and nothing has shown back up for months.

“Chubby Wolf” Statue.
When I saw this the first time, I was confused, because I didn’t remember commissioning it. I’ve used the name WolverineBurger for almost 20 years and here someone had transformed him into a chubby cheeseburger eating machine just like me!
The company wasn’t based in the US, didn’t have a website and the very limited preorder was pricey. I dealt with a guy through Facebook messenger and learned that this is pretty standard operations for the high-end, unlicensed resin statue and kit community. It’s exactly the side of collecting I always try to avoid because I don’t have the time or money to get into chasing it but this wasn’t something I was gonna pass up.
When the huge box arrived and everything was miraculously undamaged, I displayed it proudly for a couple years before packing it back up for the time being. It’ll come back out when I have a room in a bigger place worthy of it.

Who are some fellow collectors that have most impacted your personal and collecting life? – Please tell us who they were, how they impacted you, and what has become of them today (if known).

Jeremy Couillard.
My cousin Jeremy was happy to share his impressive collection of comics with me when I was just a little kid. He drew too, and he got me into Star Wars – he had tons of the vintage figures and bought all the first Lego sets when they started coming out in the 90s. I didn’t have an older brother to imitate but he was patient with me and answered questions I had about all of that stuff.
I knew all about the X-Men from the comics well before the animated series aired, and I knew the history going back to the silver age because he pointed out which reprints or old quarter bin reading copies I should get at the comic store.
I don’t see him as much as I should anymore, he’s got an awesome family of his own though and I hope he’s still doing geeky shit and encouraging his kids to do the same.

Jakob Davis.
Jake was the first friend I had who really collected the same way I did, like a maniac. His thing was Mad Magazine and that was something I collected too, but his collection of vintage issues dwarfed mine. This was in 1998, and he was a step ahead of me using the internet forums to buy and sell issues. I was 14, still mostly shopping at the comic store and hitting the flea market so this was a pretty big revelation to me. He turned me on to ebay as well, in it’s nascent stage. We shared a love for heavy music too, and collected rare albums together, it became a pissing contest to see who could unearth what.
We did mushrooms together for the first time and spent the whole night skateboarding and went back to his place after to read comics until dawn. We lost touch for awhile but reconnected again in our late 20s over our continued love of collecting. Jake had built a great collection of EC horror titles alongside his Mad run.
Sadly he lost the battle with depression and addiction several years back, taking his own life.

Don Donahue.
I first encountered Don through his mailorder catalog, which I’d obtained from a mailing list in an early comic forum. He was a respected publisher of undergrounds, THE underground even, Zap Comix #1 – a legend in my eyes, and to a teenager who wasn’t even quite done growing up on these archaic, psychedelic rags – I felt like I’d joined a secret club.
I sheepishly placed my first small order with a short note and got back a four page essay that effectively welcomed me to said secret club and assured me that Don absolutely had or could find whatever obscure book I was looking for, he had tons of stuff that wasn’t even in the catalog – just ask!
What followed was several years of frequent communications and purchases, Don always had a lot to say and was effusively warm in his emails, letters and even a few phone calls. He helped my collection grow enormously, gave me crazy deals on his own file copies, and even thanked me, thanked ME, for having the patience to deal with a “grumpy old man”. He once apologized that a package went out a week late, because he’d been in the hospital for hernia surgery! I’d have waited a year and been cool with it, the guy was a class act, unless he had something obscene to say.
He died in 2010, a couple years after the last time we communicated but I really wish I could still get another rambling letter for a $25 order.

How do you usually locate and source the objects in your collection?

Wherever I can, I’m always on the job. I utilize every tool I’ve got online and make connections all over the world. Since I’ve been doing this my whole life, I’m “that guy” for every one of my friends and family now – they’ve brought some pretty great things to my attention over the years because they knew I’d be interested.

What to you are the differences between hoarding, collecting, and curating?

It’s a fine line to be sure, I think most of us that collect for a living or as a lifelong habit do a little bit of all three to various degrees. If you don’t know which old couch full of dead cats your Mickey Mantle card is in and you need it to sell before they foreclose the house, that’s a hoard not a collection no matter what some pieces are worth and you should seek help.
Anything that becomes detrimental to the collector or the collection is a problem.

I’ve always had to make do with a lot of stuff in a small amount of space, and usually with pets and/or housemates, so I know it’s tough and I’ve walked the line too but you need to stay on top of that and don’t be afraid to let stuff go if it’s time.
On the other hand though, if you can get it all into a neat display and it’s not cluttering up your house at all, I gotta be honest, you’re either wicked rich or not a very serious collector. Even the rich collectors with big houses and museum-level displays usually have a messy storage room or two hidden somewhere.

Odds and Ends

Who are some of your favorite artists, toy makers, musicians and writers?
…and what is it about their works that so inspire and move you?

I really, really couldn’t start this list without going for miles, so I’m just going to say that the difference between creative brilliance and mediocrity comes down to intent. It’s pretty easy to see when someone is doing something for a paycheck, to be liked, or out of habit, and there’s little to no passion involved.
I can respect and get behind any person who follows the drive to make stuff on their own terms and because they need to as much as they want to. Those are the artists I admire and support, always.

If you could live in any place, during any historical era – where and when would that be?
…and why would you choose that time and place?

I’ve often felt like I don’t belong in a very civilized era.
I think I should have been a medieval soldier, probably a really good one for hire, who travels to strange & distant lands to train armies and split skulls with an axe for the highest bidder, eventually earning enough to become a minor lord somewhere with no responsibilities but a modest spot of fertile land and several good looking partners.
I know that sort of thing has a modern equivalent, but I looked into that and it just doesn’t have the same romance to it these days. Sure, I’d have probably only lived to 40 at best or died on the field even sooner, but hey I’m almost 40 now and it hasn’t all been so great.
What a life that could have been though.

What role did toys play in your childhood?

Toys encouraged my already vivid imagination on a daily basis. I was that kid setting up the long storylines and sprawling epics that took over the whole house or back yard – all the toys played together. If a toy belonged to a certain franchise I generally kept them true to character, if it didn’t have a backstory and motivation, I made one.

I loved them as collectibles too, those cardbacks that enticed you to collect them all were the bane of my existence because I didn’t get too many in between holidays and birthdays.
I struggled to keep track of accessories unlike most kids and got upset if something broke or went missing.
I snuck them into school constantly, avoiding confiscation.
I traded with neighborhood kids if they had something I couldn’t find in stores and I was really proud of my collection as it grew with me.

Who was your 1st crush?

April O’Neil from the original Ninja Turtles cartoon.

…and why were you so infatuated with them?

I mean, aside from the short, messy hair and the wicked yellow jumpsuit, she gave zero fucks. She would do anything for a story but she won’t give up the Turtles, then when she’s kidnapped by a walking can opener and a giant brain from another dimensions she’s just like “Eat my tits, you assholes are gonna pay for this when my green boyfriends get here!”
April is crazy as hell, I respected that even then and I still do now. Irma is underrated cute too but she doesn’t fill out that sweater like April does the jumpsuit.

I hit puberty at like age 8 because of her, what were they doing drawing cleavage like that in a kid’s cartoon?

Does sex change everything?


In a battle between the ‘Marvel’ comic characters: Howard the Duck Vs. Wolverine – who would win?
…and why would they be victorious?

While my man Wolverine is no doubt vicious and I don’t think even Quack-Fu is a match for Logan’s fighting skills or healing abilities, there’s no denying that Howard is smarter and he has mystical capabilities too, something Wolverine has never really done well up against. If he can’t just stab it – then he’s usually at a loss.
I think Howard is gonna come out the victor here some way or another. More likely than them having a real reason to beef though, they’d end up smoking stogies together in some dimly lit bar after a short scrap.

I can’t draw so I slapped this together, with apologies to Rich Buckler & Marc Silvestri.

Please describe your last dream in detail…

I was just chilling with one of my friends, inside somewhere on a couch. Suddenly there is this gang of people coming around the corner from a hallway and the first disturbing thing about them is how close together they are all standing, and walking forward, undulating almost in their movements like they were of a hive mind.
Then I noticed that they all looked similar too, like variations on a theme of the same person. So human looking, but not human acting.
They just sort of enveloped my friend, ignoring me, and all chattering away incoherently, they carry him away.

I woke up in a cold sweat.

I don’t usually remember a lot of my dreams, but the ones I do are usually messed up nightmares like that.

Of everything you have done, what would you most like to be remembered for?

I don’t think I’ve done it yet.
