Books I Love…

Howard Chaykin’s American Flagg! was introduced to me in 1986…  I was twelve years old, and loved losing myself in this near-futuristic world full of violence, political intrigue, mystery, and pages and pages of beautiful women in fishnet stockings. It was a socially awkward twelve year old’s dream come true. 

Shortly after, I had discovered Chaykin’s The Shadow and Black Kiss…  I was hooked!  And how cool was it to later discover that the Star Wars comics that I had first owned, that essentially started me on my lifelong path in comics, were originally drawn by Howard Chaykin years ago. 

Howard Chaykin was and will always remain one of my favorite comic creators ever!
