Is anyone here a big fan of Howard Chaykin? I didn't know much about him until recent years. A lot of people regard him as one of the best. I'm not a fan of his pattern work for his pencils/inks. I think his panel design is great though. His patterns can be distracting, and though his colorists do color holds on some of his patterns, it still manages to be distracting. His work looks messy at times. I spent a couple of years away from comics, so I was wondering what all of you thought about him.
