Hexbreaker [Comics]

I don't think I've ever actually read any of Mike Baron's Badger before, though I definitely remember seeing the series occasionally in the 80s. I just came across the Badger graphic novel Hexbreaker for a buck in a bargain bin, and thought the character was pretty fun. He's certifiably crazy, communicates with animals, and is a martial arts master. Hexbreaker sees him summoned to a Mortal Kombat- like tournament to determine the worlds deadliest fighter. The book is quite violent, especially for its time, but it also has a quirky sense of humor. Hexbreaker was cool, and I'd like to see more of Badger.
