Badger Goes Berserk

    (First, 1989)
™ and ©1989 First Comics Publishing, Inc.

Norbert Sykes is the Badger, a mentally unbalanced super-hero who trounces jaywalkers, litterbugs, and those who are unkind to animals. In Badger Goes Berserk we go back in time to explore the roots of Norbert’s psychosis, following a trail of child abuse and general weirdness that turned him into Madison, Wisconsin’s signature super-hero. It also pits Norbert against his adoptive father and a mad plot to spark a nationwide race war.

Badger had started its life with Capital Comics before transferring over to become one of First’s first titles. First comics published this four-issue mini-series to celebrate Badger’s 50th issue. To make it happen, it enlisted the help of a creative cast of sixteen people, including Badger creator Mike Baron, along with Denys Cowan, Jill Thompson, Rob Liefeld, and other notables. Even Kitchen Sink publisher Dennis Kitchen lent a hand to letter several pages.
