Mike Baron (born July 1, 1949) is an American comic book writer and the creator of Badger and the co-creator of Nexus with Steve Rude.
Mike Baron entered the comics industry with an illustrated text piece in Weird Trips Magazine #1 (March 1974) published by Kitchen Sink Press. In 1981, he published his first formal comics script with Nexus, the science fiction title he co-created with illustrator Steve Rude; the series garnered numerous honors, including Eisners for both creators. A prolific creator, Baron is responsible for The Badger, Ginger Fox, Spyke, Feud, and many other comic book titles. He and artist Jackson Guice relaunched The Flash in June 1987. Baron and Klaus Janson introduced the character Microchip as an ally of the Punisher in The Punisher #4 (November 1987). In 1988, Baron wrote the "Deadman" feature in Action Comics Weekly which led to two subsequent Deadman limited series. Baron has also written numerous other mainstream characters including Batman and several Star Wars adaptations for Dark Horse Comics. He has been nominated for Best Writer in the Kirby, Harvey, and Eisner Awards, and has won two Eisners ("Best Single Issue" and "Best Writer/Artist Team" both with Rude) for his work on Nexus.
Baron has listed Carl Barks and Philip José Farmer as influences on his fiction writing.
Mike Baron received an Inkpot Award in 1988.
