Igor Goldkind is a comics writer from the USA who was born in 1960 and is not yet dead.

His written work includes 'Along for the Ride' (with Glenn Fabry), 'The General and the Priest' (with Jim Baikie), 'The Farmer and the Soldier' with David Lloyd,  'Wroom', with Dix, all for Crisis, as well as 'Lord Jim' (with Steve Sampson), 'Nine inches to the mile' with Phil Winslade  and 'The Witches' with Will Simpson for Revolver. For 2000 AD he wrote The Clown (pictured), one of Tharg's Future Shocks (with Ron Smith), an episode of Strontium Dogs (in 1993's 2000 AD Sci-Fi Special) and an episode of Vector 13 (in 1996's 2000 AD Sci-Fi Special). He has also written two Judge Hershey stories for the Judge Dredd Megazine. He also had a robotic 'alter ego' within 2000 AD, publicity droid Ig-Roid.  Most recenly he has launched a graphic collection and animated ebook of poetry, comics, jazz and fine art entitled  Is She Available?  published by Chameleon Publishing in California, illustrated by over 25 artists and designed by font maestro and artist Rian Hughes.  The trailer for this eclectic work can be viewed here:
