Career

D. G. Chichester studied filmmaking at New York University.[2] After going broke on a failed student film, he took a job as editorial assistant to Jim Shooter out of desperation during his junior year.[3] This led to an editorial job at the Marvel Comics imprint Epic Comics following his graduation.[3] Working as an assistant editor from 1985–1986, he was promoted to associate editor in 1987. In 1989, Chichester was made a full editor, and he worked in that capacity at Epic until 1996.[4]

Beginning in 1987, Chichester started writing for comics, for Marvel and for freelance clients. His credits include a long run on Daredevil from 1991–1995, where he scripted the "Fall From Grace" story arc; he also worked on Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. from 1990–1992, and Nightstalkers from 1992–1993. Freelance credits from this period include Charlemagne #1–5 for Defiant Comics, and Motorhead #1–6 for Dark Horse Comics.

Chichester left Marvel's staff in 1989 to pursue freelance writing and editing full time. While in the midst of developing upcoming story lines for Daredevil, he learned he was to be replaced as the title's writer. For the five issues he was obligated to write he took his name off the credits, instead demanding an "Alan Smithee" credit.[citation needed] Despite being fired from the title, Chichester was later given the opportunity to write the 1997 Daredevil/Batman intercompany crossover, "An Eye for an Eye", and accepted.

Chichester has had no major comics writing credits since 1999, the same year he joined the ad agency Ogilvy & Mather as an associate creative director. He is currently the Chief Digital Officer for the Healthworld group at the company.

He lives in his native Connecticut with his wife and son, continuing to experiment with moviemaking and animation.[2]
