Badger

 BADF   (Capital, 1983-1991)

ô and © Mike Baron

Badger gives Madison, Wisconsin a super-hero to call its own. OK, so this particular super-hero is a little unhinged, suffers from multiple personality disorder, and sometimes lets murderers get away so he can devote his energies to brutalizing litterbugs. He may not be the ideal super-hero, but heck, Madisonís gotta start somewhere. We should probably also mention that Badger is hooked up with a powerful druid/wizard named Ham, making for a very dangerous combination indeed.

Brought to you by writer Mike Baron and artist Jeffrey Butler, Badger is an offbeat, but extremely enjoyable title. In the world of comics, itís a fine antidote for super-hero burnout.
