Please welcome, the one and only, artist and writer, HOWARD CHAYKIN to his first ever con appearance in Connecticut!
Mr. Chaykin was born in 1950 in New Jersey but raised in East Flatbush and Brownsville, a neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY. He started out as a gofer for the legendary artist Gil Kane at 19, which also led him to work for Wally Wood, Gray Morrow, Neal Adams and Byron Preiss, all of whom are greats in the field of comics. This is where he honed his skills as an artist and a writer. Before starting to work in film and television he was one of the pioneers of the graphic novel with “Stars Be My Destination” and “Empire.” He was also the artist of the comic adaptation of “Star Wars” as well as the artist of one of the “Luke Skywalker” movie posters for the film. He also created the revolutionary comics “American Flagg” and “Black Kiss” and did modern updates of “The Shadow” and “Blackhawk”. He’s worked on the original “Flash” TV series, and more recently on comics like “Satellite Sam” with Matt Fraction, SHIELD and many more!
