Created by writers Stan Lee, Roy Thomas, and Gerry Conway and artist Gray Morrow, the character first appeared in Savage Tales #1 (May 1971), and went on to be featured in various titles and in his own series, including Adventure into Fear, which introduced the character Howard the Duck.

Steve Gerber's 39-issue run on the series is a cult classic that was influential on such writers as Neil Gaiman.
