Nothing to See Here

Howard Chackowicz


Like New Yorker gags gone terribly wrong

Nothing to See Here is the highly-anticipated continuation of Chackowicz’s Howie Action Comix series. His one-page gags convey narrative devices that take fans to strange and dark places that exist well beyond joke territory.

“Chackowicz’s great trick is making us think that he has merely drawn us comics and cartoons both surreal and laugh-out-loud hilarious, but at a closer glance we can see that he has also crafted honest-to-god poems — lyrical works of poignancy and depth. His art is unexpectedly wistful, and warm-heartedly wise.” — Jonathan Goldstein (Heavyweight, This American Life, WireTap)

“Chackowicz’s coarse, psychotic cartoons are genuinely funny and a perfect antidote to all the dull, unimaginative alternative comics being churned out these days.” — Jim Blanchard
