Pat Broderick’s First Firestorm Signed

Before drawing The Fury of Firestorm #1, Pat Broderick tackled the Nuclear Man in the Flash back-up stories.  Broderick’s first work on the Firestorm character appeared in Flash #303 (Nov. 1981).  Check out the splash page below from that issue.  I was fortunate enough to meet Pat Broderick back in 1991 and got this issue signed!

Flash #303 - Firestorm by Pat Broderick

Broderick took over the penciling chores from Denys Cowan.  Prior to Cowan, George Perez and Jim Starlin had both drawn installments of these Firestorm eight-page back-up stories.  Talk about an impressive line-up of talent!  I can’t wait to re-read some of these back-up stories in the upcoming Firestorm The Nuclear Man trade paperback!

    Awesome you got this signed. It looks like a great splash page here. I really love the Professor’s word choices… “Ronald, my boy–I strongly urge action!”

    I always love great Professor speak.

    If this was me, I would be “Ronald! Ronald! Wake the f#$@ up! We’re going to die! Wake up you son of …”
