HOWARD VICTOR CHAYKIN is a longtime veteran of the comic book business. As a cartoonist–both writing and drawing–he has been a major influence on the direction of comics, referred to frequently as one of the principle architects of the modern comic book. His signature creation, AMERICAN FLAGG! introduced a new level of narrative complexity, depth of character, and point of view in its text, not to mention a previously unseen level of design and craft to the visual nature of an all too frequently staid and timid medium. He continues to produce work that pushes the envelope of concept, context and content in comics, most recently in THE DIVIDED STATES OF HYSTERIA, a new book that may very well get him arrested.Get your tickets now!
