ART OF HOWARD CHAYKIN HARDCOVER
256 pages FC • $29.99 • (C:0-1-2)
Written ROBERT GREENBERGER
Art and cover by HOWARD CHAYKIN
Edited by THOMAS KITNER
Legendary for what he has done on the page and infamous for what he has said off it, Howard Chaykin ranks among the superstars of modern comics. In The Art of Howard Chaykin, go behind the scenes with the creator whose pioneering works include American Flagg! The Shadow, Batman, New Avengers, Dominic Fortune and Black Kiss and more. Experience the stories of his life as only he can tell them. Filled with no-holds-barred perspective from his longtime friends and colleagues, and featuring an extensive selection of artwork from throughout his career, including many never-before-published pieces from Chaykin’s own archives, The Art of Howard Chaykin takes readers on an in-depth journey from the 1950s to today with one of the medium’s great storytellers.

“Howard is a legend—and his work is legendary. Any chance we have to talk about how much we love him and that so-incredibly-important work of his—to realize how important his work has been to the development of the medium over the last thirty years, and to say, out loud, that THIS GUY, this thorny, hilarious, shark-witted and black-hearted fiend is an honest-to-god-genius that grew the whole goddamn art form because it was too stupid for him should be taken advantage of and celebrated.”
– Matt Fraction

“Flagg!, in both its style and its concepts, fed the literary genre of cyberpunk that has since watered the entire landscape of popular culture, from comics and computer games to movies to television programs.”
– Michael Chabon

“When I discovered the work of Howard Chaykin—creator, writer, artist, and designer extraordinaire—his work in American Flagg! Forever changed my view of comics were and, more importantly, could be.”
– Jim Lee
