Indie Cover Spotlight: Chakan, The Forever Man #1

Debuting in 1990, Chakan, The Forever Man became R.A.K. Graphics‘ biggest hit. Well, big for a small indie publisher, that is. Once again, the books was created, written, and drawn by Robert A. Kraus.

The story behind Chakan is that he was such an accomplished swordsman that he challenged Death itself to a duel. If he won, he would be granted eternal life. Sure enough, he won, but ended up with one of those Faustian deals. He was granted eternal life, but in return he was compelled to hunt down and eliminate all evil from the world. Only then would he know peace.

But wait, there’s more to this story. Don’t ask me how, but somehow this little black and white indie comic was picked up by Sega and turned into a video game for the Sega Genesis!

Check out a video review of it below.
