It seems Howard Chaykin is on a new creative streak with more books coming out from various publishers seemingly every day.  Mr. Chaykin’s Century West arrives in September, and we have a sneak peek, that you can check out, after the jump.

Originally created for Disney Italia, we get our first English translation thanks to Image Comics.

CENTURY WEST follows the life of Century, Texas, from sleepy settlement to twentieth-century boomtown, and three men on whom the change has a profound effect. The three men are all settlers from the east who establish themselves as Texas Rangers, becoming an indelible part of the story of the American West.

“CENTURY WEST is one of the projects that’s been in my concept book since the early 1990s — a narrative demonstration of my conviction that the modern world began a lot earlier than any of us mid-20th-century types ever knew, and the movies were what made that modernity concrete, inviolable and inevitable,” said Chaykin in a prepared press release. “And of course, it’s got cowboys, Indians, airplanes and a Passover seder, for Christ sake. What more could you ask for?”

    It struck me that there was something altogether odd about the art in this book. It took me a moment to realize what it was. Nobody, not the people, not the horses and not the cars – have shadows!!! How strange! Aside from that, it’s pretty nice art.
