More About the Author

A writer, editor, and project manager, Robert Greenberger has been working in publishing since 1980. A lifelong fan of comics and science fiction, he watched dreams become reality when he first joined Starlog Press in 1980. There, he created Comics Scene which he edited during its initial run. In 1984, he moved to DC Comics where he worked as an editor or administrator until 2000, earning plaudits for his work on the Star Trek comic book. After a brief sojourn to the Internet, he returned to comics in 2001, this time working as an executive at Marvel Comics. This turned out to be a stormy, frustrating year and in 2002 he returned to DC as a senior editor in their growing collected editions department. In 2006, he left DC and found himself having the time of his life as Managing Editor at Weekly World News unitl its clueless management shuttered the paper.

Since then he has been a freelance writer, working on media tie-in properties, original fiction, non-fiction for your young adults and adults, and whatever else has come his way. He has cofounded the digital Crazy 8 Press.

He is certified to teach English, grades 7-12.

He makes his home in Maryland. For more, check out his website: www.bobgreenberger.com.

Format: Hardcover
Being British, I bought this on amazon.co.uk but for some reason they say it's not yet published and therefore aren't accepting reviews. Oh well.

This is one of those reviews where I'm not sure where to begin. I can't start by saying that Chaykin is one of the greatest comics artists ever because he isn't -though he's pretty damn good. What he did do, however, is to write and draw American Flagg which is the greatest science fiction comic ever -I've reviewed the two-volume compilation elsewhere in this blog. He did this back in the early 80's before Alan Moore (who wrote a backup strip for it) became ALAN (PRAISE HIS NAME) MOORE! and before Frank Miller released The Dark Knight Returns which cough borrowed cough the narrative/satirical info-dump technique from AF and then got widely praised for this 'innovation'. Perhaps not surprisingly, Chaykin doesn't have much time for Miller.

I could write a lot about American Flagg but I've already done reviewed the two pb collections so I'll just say that if Chaykin had done nothing else he'd have earned a distinct place on honour in the history of comics. Fortunately he did and this book explores all of it.

As an account of the work of a comic writer and artist, this is an excellent book. It's physically large, on glossy paper, with a vast amount of illustrations and an equally substantial amount of text. Structured chronologically, most of the written content derives from long conversations with Chaykin conducted over the course of a year. (This text is interspersed with comments from various peers which range from insightful and informative to 'my buddy Howie, wisecrack, wisecrack)'.

This item is a great buy. I received as advertised and on time. The history and progress of Chaykin's art is fully detailed and beautifully illustrated. I highly recommend for all Howard Chaykin collectors.

Format: Hardcover
I was first exposed to Howard Chaykin when "American Flagg" hit me like a thunderbolt back in the day. Here was a comic far more sophisticated, both in story and art, than what comic fans had been used to. Unlike a lot of the pabulum spoon-fed by other writers, Howard actually demanded that you think.

This book surpasses most "Art of....." tomes in its editorial content. 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. The production values here are just top-notch. I couldn't recommend this book more highly. A+.
