DC Announces Chaykin Hardcover By Brian Jacks
DC Comics has announced that Howard Chaykin, one of the most acclaimed and influential writer/artists in comics, will be bringing the "hard-hitting" graphic novel MIGHTY LOVE to DC later this year. This 96-page hardcover will be Chaykin's first original, extended solo work since the mid-1990s.

"Chaykin's cowritten lots of comics in recent years, like SON OF SUPERMAN and AMERICAN CENTURY, but he hasn't had time to draw much because he was working on several TV series. When folks see MIGHTY LOVE, they're gonna know just how much they missed him," says Mike Carlin, VP — Executive Editor, DC Universe. "It's Howard's best work since AMERICAN FLAGG! Hollywood's loss is comics' gain!"
"Howard's been a bigger influence on comics than most people realize," adds Joey Cavalieri, the project's editor. "He's what comics need more of right now: a strong, recognizable, personal voice."
MIGHTY LOVE chronicles the adventures of two urban-based super-heroes. By day, they're natural adversaries: Delaney Pope, a beautiful, honest cop, and Lincoln Reinhardt, a crusading public defender. By night, they take on the guises Skylark and Iron Angel — and find themselves clashing over crime-fighting methods, but also strangely attracted to one another.
As Chaykin recently told Newsarama.com, "These two know each other in their professional lives, and they frequently find themselves on opposite sides of a witness box. They meet behind masks, and develop what ultimately evolves into a romantic relationship."
MIGHTY LOVE is a 96-page original hardcover graphic novel suggested for mature readers and tentatively scheduled for fall, 2003.
