  1. Nexus and the Badger are two of my top 5 all-time favorite comic books, and I count Mike Baron as one of my favorite writers and top influences.

    God, I miss the First Comics line. (Got any Dynamo Joe-related stories?)

    Thanks for sharing some great moments.

  2. Mike Gold says:

    Yeah, I’ve got a Dynamo Joe story… but I can’t tell it. It falls into the “another creator getting screwed” file, and I don’t want to screw up any litigation.

    • Well, that sucks (creator getting screwed, not that you can’t tell the tale).

      You know, I have the First Comics promo poster (with DJ, Grimjack, Nexus, the Badger, Reuben Flagg and Jon Sable) in my den and sometimes I sigh with geek-longing when I pass it.

  3. I, for one, will anxiously await the telling of the “Sonic Disruptors” story. That title is something of a legend at my LCS. We all have our theories about the book, many centering on Frank Zappa to varying degrees, but I suspect your story may have little to do with him.

    • Mike Gold says:

      Big-time Zappa fan, Neil. Huge. Interviewed him back in the 1840s. Enjoy his kids’ work. And his granddaughter, too — I played her cover of Wowie Zowie on Weird Sounds Inside The Gold Mind (getthepointradio.com) a couple weeks ago.

      Having said that, any consideration of Frank had nothing to do the fate of Sonic Disruptors. I wish I had the rights to print Mike’s script/thumbnails to issue #11. One of the best unpublished comics ever.
