Writer and comic artist Howard Chaykin is often named as one of the architects of the modern comic. He’s been an influential artist in the comic world since the 70’s, after all.
In 1976, Chaykin drew the comic adaptation of the first Star Wars film for Marvel Comics.
In 1983, Chaykin created the American Flagg! series for First Comics, a truly impressive series that was decorated with no less than 9 Eagle Awards. The story tells about a dystopian world in which the American government has taken refuge on Mars and where the Brazilian Union of the Americas and the Pan-African League have become the superpowers. Awesome stuff!
Other entertaining and equally impressive feats can be found in his work for Blade, The Shadow, the incredible Time² (‘Time Squared’, got it?), DC Comics’ Hawkgirl, Hey Kids Comics, The Divided States of Hysteria and much more.
