I’m Naming My First Child “Mike Baron”

No creator has left a deeper impact on me than Mike Baron. His (early) work on The Punisher focused the character and pulled him out of the one-note maniac role he was mired in for years prior. He may have seemed an unlikely pick to helm The Punisher ongoing series, given his space epic pedigree coming off of Nexus, but he proved you can be a sci-fi nerd and still be a street dude. Granted, things went a little off the rails towards the end of his run on The Punisher, but let’s cut the dude some slack. He produced one of the most consistently readable books of the late 80’s and somehow is overlooked in favor of the dudes standing on his shoulders (whatup, Garth Ennis). Mr. Baron, this post is for you.
