The Creative Team
Two-time Eisner-Award and Inkpot Award-winning writer Mike Baron, best known for his acclaimed five-year run on Marvel Comics’ very first ongoing series of The Punisher, along with DC’s The Flash and Dark Horse Comics’ Star Wars titles, has created a werewolf story of legend involving a sheriff with a code of honor that has his own dark secrets, but the werewolf isn’t the scariest creature in this old West, supernatural thriller.
Pat Broderick is a legendary comic book artist probably best known for his work on the Micronauts and Alpha Flight for Marvel Comics, and Legion of Super-Heroes, Captain Atom, and Green Lantern for DC Comics. Pat also illustrated the Batman: Year Three storyline, which detailed the first meeting of Batman and Dick Grayson as well as Tim Drake’s first appearance. Pat has poured his heart and soul into Bronze Star, adding his detailed, expressive art style to a weird western drawing what may be the very best work of his storied career.
