The air was chilly and rain was frequent during that hunting season in 1979, especially near the top of Spruce Knob, West Virginia. Camping with my father and grandfather was fun, but I didn't mind staying in the camper.
Warm, and dry.
It helped that the local grocer down the mountain had a stash of Howard The Duck comic books to keep me entertained. I really liked the Howard title.
"Trapped in a world he never made."
(Just like me, and every other 14 year old in the world.)
It was those memories that made me excited to see the film adaptation of Howard a few years later, in the mid-80s.
The movie poster was prophetic: it really did lay an egg. And it really, still, haunts me!
