Howard Chaykin is a great artist but this is not a great book about hi. In addition to the excellent illos, Greenberger digs deep and delivers an astonishing amount of information to accompany the art, mostly by fellow professionals who really know Howard and his art.

Howard Chaykin is a great artist but this is not a great book about him. I can still remember as a kid getting a Star Reach package from Krupp with Cody Starbuck as part of it (good thing mom didn't find that section with the bull-man boffing the woman and getting its head cut-off). The production values here are just top-notch. I couldn't recommend this book more highly.

Howard Chaykin is a major comic book artist, an influence to many, but certainly not recognized enough as such. One can hope this book should help re-scale the balance. I "discovered" his work while he did a few issues of Marvel Premiere. Chaykin's art had a roughness I wasn't used to seeing in Marvel comics at that time.

As it stands, I am happy to see a retrospective of Howard Chaykin's career. I'm a child of the Bronze Age of comics, when Chaykin was one of the young turks trying to make a name for himself. He's one of the more innovative members of his generation and I had high hopes for a book that reflects that. What this book is reflects some of that; but, I still felt a bit disappointed. It's chocked full of Chaykin imagery, though it could use some better organization. The testimonials are a bit of a mixed bag, some insightful and fun, some just "okay." The biographical piece does give some insight into Chaykin and his mindset; but, at some parts I couldn't help but wish Robert Greenberger had delved more deeply. For the casual fan, it's a fine piece and documents Chaykin's career well. For the more experienced fan, you want far more than it delivers. One wishes that it had the deeper scope that IDW brings to their subjects, like the volume they delivered on Chaykin's contemporary George Perez. You aren't going to get every single page of art that Chaykin created, as the volume would be massive and the rights probably unattainable. However, it would have been nice to see more of some of the material that Chaykin owns outright, like the Cody Starbuck stories. They underwent quite an evolution between the first issue of Star *Reach, the color one-shot, and the serialized story in Heavy Metal. We don't get to really see that. I would have liked to have seen more depth on some of Chaykin's projects, particularly some of his work in the early days of graphic novels, like The Stars My Destination, Empire and The Swords of Heaven and the Flowers of Hell. The one person, aside from David Tischman, I would have loved to have heard from is Leslie Zahler, Chaykin's colorist on American Flagg! and ex-wife. However, I can understand how that might have been a bit troublesome to include. As I say, this is from the point of view of a longtime fan, not a casual reader. If that is you, this is a fine overview of Chaykin's work, including a checklist of his individual works if you are looking to sample his stories and art.

Howard Chaykin is a great artist but this is not a great book about him. I can still remember as a kid getting a Star Reach package from Krupp with Cody Starbuck as part of it (good thing mom didn't find that section with the bull-man boffing the woman and getting its head cut-off). Looking back, in its anti-heroic stance, sci-fi punk stance, graphicy style and brutally condensed narrative structure that book revolutionized comics -- just from CS and American Flagg alone Chaykin is clearly a historic innovator in his field.

But this Art of HC book -- the illustrations seem haphazardly chosen and there's not much feel in the few story selections for his radical story-telling. The testimonials are generally fannish and the writing dull and uninsightful. How come there's nothing serious about the David Tishman phase or an interview with him? What was going on with Chaykin when he was making that crazy Black Kiss series? How about some old DC or Red Circle unreprinted stories published in full?

To be fair the Ken Bruzenak interview was pretty informative and the biographical piece by Chaykin is also quite good, his comparisons of the 70's comics greats with there EC forebearers is rich food for thought. And there are some rare illustrations and prep sketches that were good to get a hold of. But in general I found the book to be most useful for learning about obscure Chaykin projects that might be worth hunting down. For the casual reader I'd suggest buying a copy of American Flagg, Black Kiss or the first Bite Club and skipping this book.
