12/25/04 - Merry Christmas! Plans were to scale the site back to the basics. Too much has been going on. Rather than scale it back. The site will return as it was. Updates and fixes are on hold indefinitely.  If you think you have something really cool that needs to be posted, donations are welcome. I cannot promise when, if, or ever any updates will occur.  

7/25/04 - Thanks to Ryan McLelland at www.forgottenuniverses.com for submitting the 40 page script to Star Seed #10. Unfortunately, all updates at this time are currently on hold indefinitely, due to obligations and responsibilities that are not related to the site.  

7/5/04 - Started a page for Broadway Comics promotional items. The first item featured is a scan of the invitation for the Broadway Comics launch party. The page also lists some items such as the Fatale Jacket and Knights On Broadway prototype toy. Unfortunately, the site has no photographs of those.  
Updated the "Miracle on Broadway" page with a story synopsis. Look for select scans of this obscure comic book very soon.  
  
6/28/04 - Another Broadway related gem has been discovered! Jim Shooter's first choice for artist on Star Seed turned down the offer because it was too "research-heavy". Who was that artist? None other than DC Comics legend Curt Swan! You can check out some sketches of his aborted work in the book "Curt Swan: A Life in Comics" from Vanguard Productions. If you think these sketches are going to look like his 1960's Superman work, think again. In Jim Shooter's words "I told him what I wanted, he understood, and he did it better than you could imagine."

6/14/04 - A tremendous thanks goes out to Pauline Weiss for providing a scan of the extremely rare  "Broadway Video Special Collectors Edition #1." You can also review the inside front cover and the first page of the story in the "Reading Room

5/26/04 - TwoMorrows Publishing has released a book about comics legend Dick Giordano who inked the unpublished "Makeshift" series for Broadway Comics. The book is titled "Dick Giordano: Changing Comics One Day At A Time". It can be purchased at their web site. One illustration in this book is a page of unpublished art from the "Makeshift" series.You can see a larger scan of that same page (Issue #1, Page 10), in the "Makeshift" art section. This page of art is now proudly owned by the Broadway Comics archive. It is great to see another publications spotlighting this unpublished work.

 

Also, be sure to check out "Mister Moto - Welcome Back Mister Moto" from Moonstone Comics which was drawn by artist Tim Hamilton. Tim is the same artist who penciled the "Makeshift" series. This is a great opportunity to see his current art style.

5/1/04 - Created the Broadway Comics "Reading Room". This section now features scans of the first and last known newsletter. The site now owns Fatale #0 pages 7, 22, 24, & 25 which were already showing in the Art section. 

4/13/04 - Added two more Broadway Comics Newsletters to the archive.

2/18/04 - Began posting an unpublished Fatale script titled "In Defiance of Reality". This script was submitted in electronic format. The original file was dated 9/26/96. Some of the original formatting was lost in conversion. This is a stunning piece because it features a crossover between Defiant Comics and Broadway Comics. 

2/17/04 - Added some unpublished cover images on the Cancelled Product page. 
 
2/14/04 - Fatale #0 script and artwork completed. Happy Valentines Day! 
 
Fatale 0 panel2/12/04 - Began  the posting the Fatale #0 script along with unpublished art. Get the story, well....at least the first few pages for now! Thanks to Michael Sacal (MOTA) for this script submission. According to Mr. Sacal, this script was posted  years ago on the now-defunct Broadway Comics web site. He printed the script and this is an OCR extraction of the text from his printout. OCR stands for "Optical Character Recognition" and it involves extracting text from a scan rather than transcribing or typing it by hand. It is a time saver. Some text errors may exist. Some slight formatting was changed, including the inclusion of original unpublihed art. 

2/11/04 - Makeshift #3 art scans are now online! 

2/9/04 - Virtually all of Makeshift #2 art is available for review online now. I've experimented with different layouts, and it is all subject to change. Issue #3 will hopefully be up later this week.
