Badger Bull

    (Idea + Design Works, 2007)
™ and © 2007 Idea + Design Works

When a group of teenagers attempt to engage in the rural activity known as “cow tipping,” Badger spoils their fun. His drastic methods put two of the kids in the hospital and himself in the county jail. Daisy bails him out in time for Ham to assign him the task of protecting Lord Dunsany, a bio-engineered bull whose semen is invaluable. Of course events escalate, necessitating several martial arts fights and more bull than one might expect.

The Badger is only one of the personalities of Norbert Sykes, a Vietnam veteran, who suffers from Multiple Personality Disorder. Together with Ham, a druid mystic from the 5th century, and Daisy, his mental health caseworker, Norbert involves himself in a myriad of adventures, usually with an air of absurdity even if the subject is grim. This series was originally published by Capital and then by First Comics for 70 issues. The current one-shot from IDW precedes a mini-series: Badger Save the World.
