Acquisition by Platinum StudiosEdit

In 2006, Broken Frontier was purchased by the multimedia entertainment company and comics publisher Platinum Studios[2] as part of an initiative to increase Platinum's Web presence. Broken Frontier was a fully owned subsidiary of Platinum at this time, but was given the autonomy to continue operating as before. However, in July 2007, Platinum terminated its association with Broken Frontier,[3][4] leaving the site independently owned once again.

The Frontiersman: Digital Comics MagazineEdit

In 2010, Broken Frontier launched The Frontiersman,[5][6] a companion to the Broken Frontier website.
