He was one of the directors for the TV series Wolverine and the X-Men. He directed the direct-to-DVD film Stan Lee presents: The Condor featuring Wilmer Valderrama. He was an unaccredited storyboard artist on the feature film Terminator Salvation and is a director on the second (yet un-aired) animated TV show The Avengers for Marvel and Starz. In 2009, he co-directed the direct-to-video sequel to Happily N’ever After at Vanguard Animation alongside Boyd Kirkland.

Writer J. M. DeMatteis and Broderick created the Creature Commandos in Weird War Tales #93 (November 1980) In 1982, Broderick abruptly left Marvel for DC.  During his time at DC, Broderick worked on Firestorm, Captain Atom, Batman: Year Three, Swamp Thing, and Green Lantern.

After ten years at DC, Broderick once again returned to Marvel, where he worked as the regular penciller first on Alpha Flight and then on Doom 2099.

In 1995, Broderick turned to advertising full time, moving to Dallas to lead the in-house creative department at Tracy Locke and Partnership. The company handled packaging, print, and television ads for PepsiCo, Frito-Lay, Pizza Hut, Federal Express, Harrah’s Casinos, and Hasbro. This led to design work for DNA Productions on the 2001 movie, Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius.

In 2003, Broderick returned to comics with the short-lived Future Comics. He was scheduled to work on the title Peacekeepers, but it was never published, and Future went out of business shortly thereafter. In 2004, Devil’s Due Publishing revived Micronauts, with Broderick returning to the title and illustrated three issues.

In 2003, Broderick was a member of the animation department faculty at Tampa’s International Academy of Design and Technology.

The COMIC FEST 2017 ARTISTS OF THE YEAR are Artem Shukaev and Joe Oliver! Their amazing artwork (displayed above) will be gracing our banners and t-shirts this year! Make sure you swing by their booths this year and meet these talented artists!


Over the past five years, Artem illustrated for such companies as Frog God Games, Punch-It Entertainment, and Troll Lord Games. With a childhood steeped in mythology, he views art as a tool for storytelling —a way to get the pictures out of his head and into others’. Ranging from classic high fantasy to sci-fi and steampunk, Artem enjoys a wide variety of themes and genres. Driven by a passion for folklore, games, and art, he is primarily self-taught. Learning digital art with just a mouse, he aims to capture the feel of his favorite artist: Frank Frazetta. Inspired by Frazetta’s bright pallet, bombastic action, and beautifully realized characters, Artem continuously studies anatomy and composition while searching for a realistic rendering style. He currently works freelance for tabletop and book publishers with aspirations for the video game industry.
Joe Oliver has been working as a freelance artist for several years. He loves drawing and
has worked on many different projects ranging from childrens stories to horror illustrations.
He appreciates the freedom of creating that freelance work allows, but says he has
a hard time finding balance between that and personal work. He’s happy as long as he’s
drawing though, and hopes to continue far into the future.
