CHAYKIN’S SEMINAL AMERICAN FLAGG FINALLY
AVAILABLE DIGITALLY ON COMIXOLOGY

INCLUDES AN EXCLUSIVE FORWARD BY WARREN ELLIS

June 6th, 2012 – New York, New York — Dynamite Entertainment and comiXology have teamed up to release legendary comic creator Howard Chaykin’s classic American Flagg!digitally across the entire comiXology platform — including iPhoneiPadAndroidKindle Fireand the Web. Long considered a classic, this exclusive digital release also includes a brand new forward by bestselling comic creator and novelist Warren Ellis — only available on comiXology. The forward, along with first arc of the American Flagg series marks the beginning of a new era for this groundbreaking masterpiece as it moves into the digital age.

“Bringing the work of a master creator like Howard Chaykin to the forefront of the digital realm defines what comiXology is at it’s very core” says comiXology CEO and Co-Founder David Steinberger “Being able to distribute lost classics to new readers is something we’re striving to continue as we push forward in 2012.”

Lauded for its status as a cult classic and unparalleled in it’s impact on today’s comic scene, Howard Chaykin’s American Flagg! brings it’s unique indie spirit to comiXology and is available for download as individual single issues and as a completed Graphic Novel.

“There are few great comic works as influential and well respected as Howard Chaykin’sAmerican Flagg!  The work is, in my opinion, one of the most important works from the 1980’s.  Howard was ahead of his time with American Flagg!  He was a visionary, and Flagg!,as well as The Shadow and other works show why he is one of the most respected creators in comics.” saysDynamite President and Publisher Nick Barrucci “Offering American Flagg!digitally is ideal in bringing the classic series to a new generation of readers.  We couldn’t be more excited about having both this incredible series by Chaykin with a new forward by Ellis available digitally on comiXology.”

A monumental achievement in modern sequential art, American Flagg tells the story of Reuben Flagg and the world he inhabits following the devastating events of the Year of the Domino. In a future where planet Earth has been torn asunder by a wave of natural disasters and civilization is forced to plot a new course for itself as the United States government flees to Mars, Flagg must deal with all the remaining factions left behind.

“When I first produced American Flagg! back in the early ’80s, I had no idea just how much I got right about the dystopic future careening toward us.  Needless to say, I’m delighted to have the material available digitally,” said legendary series creator Howard Chaykin. “Now get to work, you intellectual-property pirates, thieves, and scumbags–here’s one more thing to steal.”

A welcomed addition to the vast offerings of digital comics available on the comiXology platform, American Flagg continues to stand the test of time decades after it’s original release. Newly recolored and restored, American Flagg is available for download  as one graphic novel collecting the first twelve issues or individual issues on iPhoneiPad,AndroidKindle Fire and the Web as well as the comiXology Digital Storefront program. Colliding with the future it so ably depicted thirty years ago, American Flagg has never been more widely available to readers — both new and old — than it is today.
