The future ain’t pretty. It’s 2043, and the United States Under God is a dry, violent place filled with aggressive degenerates. ‘Born’ into this world is Baby Badass; a failed military experiment who escapes into the New West desert where he’s discovered by a sweet waitress who takes him in, not knowing that the slumbering bundle is actually a 33 year old half-formed hybrid clone of super-soldier Alphie Omega.
On the run from an evil entity called M.O.T.H.E.R. (Military Organization to Harness Evolutionary Resources), it’s Mad Max meets Idiocracy—a hilarious and disturbing journey into a dark future of fear, sex, violence, and the occasional diaper-change. BABY BADASS is a fun, colorful ride—an insane pop culture mashup with a truly unique superantihero. I mean really, where else can you see a “baby” eating a heart?
This mini-series is a loving homage to the 90’s more vengeance-based creations. Inspired by classic comics and seminal blockbusters, it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen, and everything you’ve ever loved all at the same time.
When asked what he wants readers to get out of his book, Series co-creator Schrader comments, “We want them to laugh, and then we want them to laugh until they cry. We want them to be entertained by the breathless action, heroism, and unlikeliest of friendships. Joey and Baby Badass represent the duality of America; the infantile, reactionary, arbitrary bursts of violence and the virtuous Lady Liberty’s ongoing quest for justice and peace. Also, there are some poop jokes.”

“If you like comic books that are actually funny, a bit violent in the [vein] of Milk & Cheese or you’re a fan of Adult Swim… then Baby Badass is the book for you.” (Comic Bastards)
