Description

Four 11 x 14 inch color plates in a printed black-and-white envelope. This limited Signed & Numbered edition of the portfolio has one extra, exclusive color plate, and is signed and numbered on the envelope.

Chaykin's second portfolio featuring his swashbuckling space pirate. Cody Starbuck first appeared in Star Reach #1 (1974), in some issues of Heavy Metal, and a 1978 portfolio.

Limited edition portfolios were a phenomenon of the 1970s and 80s. They grew out of a greater appreciation of comic and fantasy artists. Middle-Earth lead the way publishing a 1973 portfolio of Frank Frazetta drawings that quickly sold out its 500-copy print run. It was followed by Barry Smith's Tupenny Conan Portfolio in 1974 and another Frazetta portfolio, The Lord of the Rings, in 1975. This lead to a decade of large format, limited edition portfolios: a suite of new illustrations created without restrictions or censorship, with better printing on better paper, reproduced in a large size, to fully appreciate the artwork.
