ENIAC is what I'm most interested in. As a parent, I like the look of Whalesville. Slay Bells.... :lol:

These are stunningly beautiful and interesting comics. Whalesville looks incredible with the use Japanese print imagery. Really looking forward to reading these in the flesh.

Completely agree. It’s great that there are books for me as well as one for my kids (Whalesville) that I can enjoy reading with them. It’s refreshing to see quality books and art to be excited about.
Egad, a base tone denotes a bad age!

Man, this list of comics almost brought a tear to my eye. This brings up a ton of memories of waking up to bombastic publishing initiative announcements like Valiant Next and Future of Valiant.

I have complete faith in you guys.


Now I just have to learn to live with the stress of potentially not owning all of these.

I’m all in of course, but no mention of MEGALITH!!! Come on Maaaannn!!

Also, screw 2020 huh! If they ramped up production during COVID, what’s the hold up?

Conventions might be back in effect by then, will see. I guess that’s a good idea.

I'm not sure if this has been asked before, but is Bad Idea going to be a shared universe?

Dinesh said something on Facebook to the effect of, "No one said it's NOT going to be a shared universe."

And then there's this from the first article in Dinesh's post at the top of the page:
comicbook.com article wrote:That’s where the next chapter of The Hero Trade – our insane series of shorts by creators Matt Kindt and David Lapham – will appear, as well as the birth of Bad Idea’s own subversive twist on what a shared universe can be and do. (Shh, we’ve said too much already.)

This update rejuvenated my interest in Bad Idea! In six months, the button and hero trade Ashcan nonsense will be a memory with a fading scar. On to the actual comics!

With Dinesh at the helm, why has no one asked if Gold Key characters will be included?
I wish their was a Spinal Tap comic, and I had a copy CGC graded at 11.

Because #BadIdea has more of a Defiant vibe, that's why. :lol:
