Born and raised in a suburb bordering Chicago, Tim Broderick attended high school in the city, then earned a journalism degree from Eastern Illinois University, graduating in 1984 with numerous awards for cartooning. Tim began work as a newspaper artist, but he was drawn to an emerging form embodied by Art Speigleman's "Maus" and Fantagraphics' "Love & Rockets" during comics' "black and white explosion" of the mid-eighties. When the movement died out, Tim put aside the story he had been developing: "Riot 57," featuring an early version of his character David Diangelo. A flood in the '90s destroyed all his artwork, including "Riot 57." He had nothing to show to his children. That led Tim to develop a series for the web. "Lost Child" debuted in 2000 and quickly gained a loyal following and critical attention. Today, Tim has completed three graphic novels and is working on his fourth, "Children of the Revolution."Review:
"Old-fashioned cloak-and-dagger stories are rare in graphic novels, in which flashier, otherworldly scenarios usually trump more prosaic ones. In this tale of intrigue and double-crossing industrial spies, the artwork takes a backseat to a down-to-earth, gripping story line. Broderick¹s boxy, minimalist pen-and-ink drawings may not win any artistic awards, but his sure command of plot and dialogue has already earned him an option from Warner Brothers for a possible TV series based on Diangelo's unusual escapades." --Booklist
With a clear, cartoony style and solid storytelling, Tim Broderick entices you into the seamy world of Odd Jobs. --Gene Yang, National Book Award nominee and winner of the American Library Association's Printz Award for American Born Chinese
A deceptively textured commentary on the vagaries of modern life and the loss of privacy, CASH & CARRY is a fine blend of comic strip and corruption, of panic and paranoia. It's both fun and frightening. --Reed Farrel Coleman, Shamus, Barry, and Anthony Award-winning author of Soul Patch
