Re: The first BAD IDEA comic: HERO TRADE #1 by Lapham & Kindt out now.

The hurry to make movies led to the early partnership with DMG, and it was because of the movie that Valiant was able to be taken over by DMG. Things have been getting worse since the takeover. Therefore, I submit that those involved in hurrying into hollywood faster than they could afford to, basi...

Re: The first BAD IDEA comic: HERO TRADE #1 by Lapham & Kindt out now.

Let's get some late facts on this book. 1. It's an ashcan of a story that will be published in Eniac #3. It's not BAD IDEAs first comic book. 2. This was a marketing message incased in a black/white 8 page pamphlet, to get BAD IDEA beyond the "Valiant" base and to the collector market 3. There may b...

Re: The first BAD IDEA comic: HERO TRADE #1 by Lapham & Kindt out now.

Madness, I tell you.... Is it though? 100 stores, many of whom got this book, like they do from a bunch of other tiny creator companies, did not think much and threw it away. I bet you there is less than 50 total that are flowing around and knowing VEI / BAD IDEA collectors, NOBODY is selling once ...

Re: BAD IDEA Eniac 1-4 Deal from Collector's Paradise (UPDATED)

Oh, of course I will. Also, I have FULL CONFIDENCE that in the next couple of weeks we'll have the info from Dinesh & Co. about the release dates for Eniac, and I will be given the opportunity to place my order. Once I know the amount I am locked in, I will form a strategy and we'll go forward with ...

At this time, I am just waiting for Bad Idea to tell me what I will get, how many and other rules. The way things are distributed, right now, I don't have a confidence that I will get what I ordered. And while I appreciate the "out of the box" marketing to make awareness of the brand high among cert...

Re: Barry Windsor-Smith signature on X-O Manowar # 1

I’ve never met any of the Valiant creators/artists/writers. But, hopefully he was in a rush for some reason and doesn’t act that way consistently. That does seem like a missed opportunity to interact with the fans. I could see being very quick with each person since there were so many. But, not to ...

Re: Barry Windsor-Smith signature on X-O Manowar # 1

Took me a while to remember to take this photo. It's one of my oldest Valiant things I own, box set of 4 books, signed by Barry, Shooter and Walt Simonson. I never met Shooter or Walt, I bought it signed by all three. I have other BWS signatures as I had met him at least 3 times. Obsessed. But this ...

Call the shop first. It could be they are not open or it could be that Bad Idea has not sent the info to them yet. Make a relationship with them if you can, because you will need it for every BI book. I am here if that does not work.

Do we order through the store web site or just send PayPal with a note? Either way I’m in. Apologies if this was explained somewhere ... Any chance you’ll be doing this for other Bad Ideas? So, the quick answer is no, but let me explain why. At $16, we make VERY LITTLE on this deal. This is not lik...

Re: BAD IDEA Eniac 1-4 Deal from Collector's Paradise (UPDATED)

a. the whole industry revolves around the idea of pre-orders b. I never said they don't know the release, I said it's not my place to announce it. it's theirs and they know when to do it. I don't think Dinesh has ever missed the correct timing on announcing things. c. ok, homes :roll: :roll: :roll:

That is something Bad Idea will have to disclose, I am not about to step on their marketing efforts :) Oh, and I don't know yet, things changed with COVID. But I know you are about to see a marketing campaign for the ages. Dont ask me how I know.

hey all So, I know I have made pretty strict rules about ordering Eniac before, requiring subscription at our store and all that fun stuff, BUT... life is different now since COVID, so I am going to relax the rules a little to help Dinesh and Co, and try to sell more books.

Re: DC ends relationship with Diamond!

I don't need to hear from them. It was also very underhanded the way DC announced these new distributors without saying who they really were. It took comic press 10 min to figure it out.

Re: Valiant metal signs - new in June 2020

Displate is a big time company, been around for a long time and has a Marvel license, so I don't think it's illegal. Valiant probably has a shared license to distribute movie images and probably got permission from Boss Logic to use the image (or Sony did).
