Controversial poll but ENIAC has that warm and fuzzy VEI feel.

It's not controversial at all. It feels more Valiant than DMG's Valiant. I won't pretend like DMG never produced anything good, because it absolutely did, but ENIAC #1 is still better.

No controversy with this statement. You look at the list of people involved in Eniac #1 and it’s all Valiant. DMG Valiant aka Acclaim 2.0 have produced 90% sub standard dross, reading Eniac just reminded me of that fact.

Watch out for an obscure title from a side imprint called Eniacer or Eniacliest.

Dunno what to say about ENIAC, as I haven't read it but probably should have.

I just messaged my LCS on FB and they sold out fast. Not gonna be reading this one, I guess.

I did however just finish the Bad Idea CRASS PROMOTION MODULE which, in my opinion, counts as Bad Idea first issue. It came out before ENIAC right?

Well, now I see after all this hype and anticipation ENIAC is only 4 issues and everything teased is small runs and one shots. I personally don't think that's a good thing. What do you think? I'd like an ongoing SOMETHING.
I've been looking everywhere for the ultra-rare Turok vs Blister issue. Anybody able to help me out?

Well, they didn't really care much about how authentic their cinematic version would be like either.

They're just people with money...gambling.

No difference between the Kotharis, Cuneos, and Mintzs -- neither cared/s.

It's okay, I guess. It's just really bad for the one hundred of us who do care.

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.

I think the irony comes from the meaning. The Cincinnati Kid wanted to be the best.

Remember, this is just the kick-off. The only thing known is the first four books and the one-shots. It was advertised as that as well, all four books were minis, but that's not saying they all will stay that way.

Bask in the glow and the warm fuzzies right now, this is good storytelling. This feels like a little normality and I for one will enjoy it!

I cannot wait to finally enjoy this.

Unfortunately, I'll still have to wait until May and :hope: there won't be another delay.
