With the coronavirus shutting down the comics industry for the foreseeable future, new comic publisher Bad Idea has had to rejig its release strategy – but in the meantime, the company has set up a relief fund to help comics shops.
Comics Publisher Bad Idea has announced the list of comics shops that will be carrying its initial releases.
The list international, with five stores in Canada and one each in London, England, Dublin, Ireland and Sydney, Australia.
Eclipse is also reposting the preview issues for Bad Idea’ debut release, ENIAC below.
New comics publisher Bad Idea has made a splash at ComicsPRO 2020 with an irreverent video playing to their unique approach to the business – featuring some big (and not so big) names who may (or may not) be reading cue cards (to great effect).
Bad Idea will make their (limited number of) comics shops debut with ENIAC (writing by Matt Kindt and art by Lewis LaRosa) on May 6th.
New comics publisher Bad Idea is taking a novel approach to publishing comics and their unique style will be evident in their approach to their first comics convention, ComicsPRO 2020.
Check out the details below.
At the height of World War II, the world’s most ingenious minds began a race to create a super-weapon capable of ending the war with the push of a button. One of those projects gave us the atom bomb…and another produced the world’s first supercomputer: ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer).
Three days after The Bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, another was dropped on Nagasaki – but it wasn’t ordered by President Truman!
The first issue of ENIAC – the tale of an alternate history where an AI was created in 1945, by Matt Kindt and Doug Braithwaite – will be in select comics shops on May 6th.
Bad Idea is a genuinely unique new comics publisher with what could be best described as a radical new approach to creating and marketing comic books.
