Cody Starbuck by Howard Chaykin

I have loved reading Howard Chaykin's graphic novels for almost 10 years now. I started with "Batman: Dark Alliances" and worked my way back through "Blackhawk", "Shadow", "Mighty Love" (loved Richard Price's "Lush Life" poster in the background!), "City of Tomorrow", "Iron Wolf" (both the 70's and the "Mignola" versions), "Twilight", "American Flagg", "Times Square" (I don't know how to do the math sign), the various Dominic Fortune appearances...the list goes on and on. But one storyline has always vexed me...Cody Starbuck! The Problem is that Cody Starbuck is a series of stand alone stories (in some cases almost re-boots) with gaps of 2-3 years in between. I love the stories...but I wonder if I am missing chunks of it. Here is what I got:

Star*Reach #1 (1974) and #4 (1976)

Cody Starbuck Star*Reach graphic novelette (1978)

Heavy Metal: May, June, July, August, September 1981--- a serialized 46 page graphic novel

1978 Cody Starbuck portfolio by Schanes and Schanes (6 black and white plates)

1980 Cody Starbuck portfolio by SQ. Prod. Pub./ Continuity Comics (4 color plates)

I have also read in an interview with Neal Adams that "Cody Starbuck" was sold by Continuity to some company in Europe and they printed a graphic novel. I have not been able to find any info on that. I am not even sure if it was printed in France or Italy...or if this "European graphic album" is the reprint of material from Heavy Metal.

Can anyone help? Does any one know who I can ask?

I wish I could help :(

On another note, did some Robotika fan art.

Hope you are doing well, man.

Hi Rick,

Good to hear from you :)

Nice piece. You got a great likeness and you did not shy away from putting the detail into his utility belt. I also love the colors and the background. Thank you!

Part of your link got cut off...would you mind if I re-posted it in one of the regular posts?

By the way, nice series of black and white illustrations over on your blog :)

Hey man, thanks for the comments. I actually plan on doing a couple more between projects, so I'll let you know when I get them done. And feel free to post it in your regular posts, no problem.
