Mike Baron

Mike Baron broke into comics in 1981 with Nexus, his science fiction title co-created with illustrator Steve Rude; the series garnered numerous honors, including Eisners for both creators. A prolific creator, Mike is responsible for The Badger, Ginger Fox, Spyke, Feud, and many other comic book titles. Baron has also written numerous mainstream characters, most notably DC's The Flash and Batman, Marvel's The Punisher, and several Star Wars adaptations for Dark Horse. He has been nominated for Best Writer in the Kirby, Harvey and Eisner Awards, and has won two Eisners for his work on Nexus
Buzz For Aldrin is one of his albums of 2007 it seems…

Mike Baron “Pillbugs: Buzz for Aldrin. The Pillbugs have been producing outstanding psychedelia since 1991, released their first album in 1998. Mainly the brainchild of guitarist/composer Mark Mikel, the Pillbugs have been getting progressively richer, deeper, and more rewarding with each subsequent release. This is a two disc set, like two of their previous albums. There is no filler. To give you a clue where they're coming from the second track is called "Make Like Arthur Lee." Only Arthur Lee never managed to fill an album the way these boys do. The second disc in particular hits you with one perfectly timed acid flashback after another, until you feel like you've been worked over by a tag-team of nude female masseuses to music by vintage Airplane and Country Joe & the Fish.”
