Mike Baron's The Badger Returns In February From Devil's Due/1First Comics

Coming in February from the publisher with the most complicated name in comics, Devil's Due/1First Comics LLC is the return of The Badger, by Mike Baron, Jim Fern and Paul Mounts.

Originally created and published in 1983 by Baron, published by Capital Comics and then First Comics for seventy issues, the violent superhero comic then saw publication from Dark Horse, Image and IDW as well.

A Vietnam veteran and sexual abuse survivor with multiple personality disorders, The Badger was just one of the identities of Norbert Sykes, a vigilante who could talk to animals, who got involved with supernatural nastiness.

And in February it is a return to the new First Comics publisher by Baron with art by Jim Fern. And the main aim is to bring the character right up to date.

Fans have demanded it and now, at long last, the Badger returns! A brand new story ripped from today's headlines, from the inimitable Mike Baron! Badger as you've never seen him:  Raw! Furious! Crazier than Randy Quaid! Jim Fern's art will astonish! With a killer variant cover by Paul Pope!


Enter the badger? Is that something else David Cameron did?
