    >> Particularly with the portrayal of a trans sex worker being killed.>>

    Just to note: There is no portrayal of a trans sex worker being killed. There is a portrayal of a trans sex worker killing several violent transphobes in self-defense.

    Whether that’s acceptable is up to the individual reader, but it’s probably worth mentioning — the trans woman is one of the lead characters.

      Thank you for catching that error, Kurt! It’s been corrected.

      I got used to people misremembering Chaykin’s work decades ago. If I had a dollar for each time somebody told (or wrote; pre-tweet) me that American Flagg! had on-panel sex, I’d have enough cash to bail out a squadron of sex workers. Howard came closer to that in Blackhawk, but again, no cigar (so to speak). Truth in advertising teams up with contractual obligation on this stuff: all of Howard’s work is labeled “Chaykin.” Buy the book, read the book but considering it a documentary on what goes on in his head at your own risk.
