About B.A.D.

Richard Boom started out in the comic industry as your regular fanboy, just reading comics and enjoying it even more due to the internet and making contact with creators. As his contact list grew, so did his interest in the complete field of comic. Starting up a Bad Grrl Comics Fan Club in 2001 was the first step to go further then his own living room. Shortly after he began setting up websites for Arthur Suydam, Eric Basaldua, Broadsword Comics and focussing on titles like Vampirella, Cavewoman, Hack/Slash and more…

A visit to F.A.C.T.S. (a Belgium convention) gave Richard the opportunity to work with the organization and has been affiliated with this convention since 2006, helping them when and where he can; from seeking sponsorships, contacting artists to be their guests, to helping manage the Artist Alley.

At this convention he met the founder of Broken Frontier and shortly thereafter began doing headlines for this news site. After a while doing PR, Richard and the CEO of BF decided it was better to part ways and Richard started Comics For Sinners, mixing his love for PR’s with his original concept of the Bad Grrl Comics Fan Club.

Boom Art Department is founded after Richard kept getting more into art and comics. Richard’s contacts/network grew exponentially as did his work in the indy comic book scene, doing PR/marketing, editorial duties and more…

He decided it would be best to represent the artists and clients more professionally and thus Boom Art Department aka B.A.D. was founded.
