Babes of Broadway

 BAOB   (Broadway, 1996)

™ and ©1996 Broadway Comics

Most pin-up books feature page after page of scantily-clad, voluptuous women. This title from Broadway Comics is somewhat different in that regard. The requisite number of beautiful women from Broadway’s line of comics are certainly represented, but additionally women that are normally not seen as pin-up material are also included. These individuals are much older, (Mrs. Razaq, from Makeshift), much younger, (Tammy from Knights on Broadway) and sometimes not really women at all, (Stephen/Stephanie from Technomancers). Editor Erica Rodriguez addresses this seeming contradiction as a function of a mature attitude and the difference between sex and sexism. That may well be true, but that stance does little to disguise the obvious function of this book as a sampler of the Broadway line.
