|THE BROECKER SAMPLER|
"Tentacles, skulls, skeletons, demons -- illustrations that would be right at home in the horror comics of yesteryear -- Broecker takes such glee in his work that he drags you into his imagination before you know it.
Ellen Datlow in The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror
"Twenty-four pen & ink drawings, beautifully rendered with fine detail work. We've always liked Broecker's intricately rendered work. His illustrations for Donald Grant fantasy novels stand out.
Bud Plant Comic Art Catalog
"I can see that Broecker must have studied the work of Sidney Sime and Harry Clarke, and probably Mervyn Peake and Wallace Smith as well. Beautiful stuff .
