Re: Selling a few more of my OG Art pages to help fund a project

Wow. Lisner did a Valiant commission. That is so totally cool. Actually it's not exactly a commission. It was a piece done for Valiant, that was not used, instead they had the artist on the book redraw it almost 100% exact and use it as a splash page inside the book. At least that's what I had hear...

Re: Selling a few more of my OG Art pages to help fund a project

I don't need funds that bad right now :) sorry not even a quote. It took me a long time to convince the previous owner to sell it to me after I missed out on it originally, before it was even announced online (Jesse is a sneaky #@#$@ :D ). This is my "grail". To quote the famous American poet, Pat ...

I think the irony comes from the meaning. The Cincinnati Kid wanted to be the best.
Never seen the movie. But it's working so far for Dino & co. Time will tell.

ps. Ironically, #BadIdea's website has been registered by "The Cincinnati Kid."
Why Ironically? It's the name of the company that Dino owns that puts out Bad Idea comics. Bad Idea is not the company, it's the name of the publishing imprint.

Re: Monsters by Barry Winsor Smith

We will be getting quite a few copies if you can't find one locally or online. I am a HUUUUGE BWS fan, as some here may know and so we ordered pretty heavily. That may mean nothing if it sells as well as I expect it to, but I got at least 20-30 copies coming BTW, there is an $79.99 SIGNED and NUMBER...

Re: Valiant Uprising FCBD 2021

With the product that is being pumped out by so many publishers nowadays, I expect LCS's to all go out of business and comics to instead be sold in small coffee shops to yuppies who wear berets and scarves in any weather while they consume lattes by small, gentle sips. I don't know where you buy co...

It's nothing like XO or Aric. He'd never wear anything this godawful. This is not me, the seller of co...

I SPECIFICALLY made it not about YOU by saying "some of you" so if you feel it's about you, you are projecting your own feelings not mine. And if stores around you have no clues and are not interested, it's not on Dino and Bad Idea, it's on them. Being in comic book retail for almost 30 years, with ...

Re: I'm starting to think Bad Idea might actually be a terrible idea.

Fun thread, specially since I am mentioned a bit. 1. Fun to be called a random guy, considering I can tell you two specific books from Valiant where I ordered 10+% of the print run (1 in every 10 comics). Oh, also one of the oldest members of this site, from WAAAAAAY before Dinesh put Valiant back t...

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...

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.
