Happy Birthday, Pat Broderick!

Happy Birthday, Pat Broderick!

Today is the birthday of extraordinary artist Pat Broderick, born on this date in  1953.

Anj here. I have been a fan of Pat's since the early 80s. I think I truly became a fan with his work on Firestorm. His style was beautiful and one of the first that I 'recognized'. I think his Legion work is great but, in my mind, he will always be the artist of Firestorm and Captain Atom. I was thrilled that Nightshade, one of my favorite B-listers, became a character in Captain Atom and was drawn by Broderick. Also, his chapter in the wonderful Justice League of America #200 is fantastic and was the first time that I understood the strength of the Martian Manhunter. I recently was lucky enough to meet Broderick at the Rhode Island Comic Con and gushed a bit like a fanboy. He was completely gracious and great to talk to.
