The badasses populating the pages of Badass are probably the most savagely superior ancient figures to ever strap on a couple of chain mail gauntlets and run screaming into fight. Creator Ben Thompson—regarded as via many to be the Web’s most fulfilling knowledgeable on badassitude—has accumulated in combination a rogues’ gallery of butt-stomping rogues, from Julius Caesar and Genghis Khan to Blackbeard, George S. Patton, and Bruce Lee. Their bone-breaking exploits are illustrated via best artist from the fields of gaming, comics, and playing cards—DC Comics illustrator Matt Haley and Thomas Denmark, illustrator for the collectible card sport Magic: The Amassing. This isn’t your uninteresting highschool historical past—that is difficult, manly, unrelentingly Badass!
