Howard Chaykin!

Meet the legendary artist of Star Wars #1 for Marvel Comics. This book held a 25+ year streak as the only comic book to break a million copies sold, and was credited by Marvel’s Editor-in-Chief as being the one comic book that saved Marvel comics from possible liquidaton in 1977.

Star wars #1 was the world’s introduction to the world of Star Wars, a marketing initiative spearheaded by George Lucas. In fact, Chaykin is credited with drawing the first ever Theatrical poster for Star Wars way back in 1976. How cool is that!
