(Bizarre Adventures#34/2) - Seeking to earn his wings as an angel, Andy appeared on San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge on Christmas Eve and caught Howard the Duck as he attempted to commit suicide by jumping off the bridge. Seeking to convince Howard that his life was worth living, Andy gave Howard glimpses into Reality-83234, a world where Howard the Duck never arrived on Earth. Andy brought Howard to see Paul Same, Arthur Winslow, and finally Beverly Switzler, but it turned out they were all much better off in this world. Despondent at his failure, Andy feared he would never get his wings and prepared to jump on the bridge himself. Realizing Andy was even more pathetic than himself, Howard stopped Andy, promising that he wouldn't kill himself. Andy feared Howard was just saying that to make him feel better, but Howard told him that this adventure had taken him out of his suicidal mood, and he offered to buy Andy a drink, provided they could find a bar open on Christmas Eve. As the Church Bells struck midnight, Howard and Andy realized that Andy had earned his wings at last.
Comments: Created by Steven Grant and Paul Smith.
Rushed to get this one out for Christmas. I'll try to profile Earth-83234 in the near future.
