Makin' Chaykin: "The Lights...Camera...Murder! Contract"

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! One of Ol' Groove's fave current TV shows is The Human Target. It's not a bit like the classic Len Wein creation, but it's still a really good action/adventure show. Still, nothing beats the original--especially when its penciled by an artist of the caliber of one Howard Victor Chaykin! Written by Wein and inked by Dick Giordano, "The Lights...Camera...Murder! Contract" hit the stands in Detective Comics #483 (December 1978/January 1979). Dig it!

  1. Gotta love Chaykin; thanks for posting the more obscure stuff he drew like this.
    And, since I didn't do so earlier, I'd like to wish you the happiest of new years.
