Howard the Duck, the character who got a cameo at the very end of James Gunn’s blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy this summer, will get his own ongoing comic book series next year.

The character will become a private investigator in the Marvel Universe in the new series, which will be written by Chip Zdarsky with art by Joe Quinones, the Hollywood Reporter said.

In the 1970s, the character was the star of a satire on pop culture in a monthly comic book, a newspaper strip, and even a 1976 presidential run.
