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

Post by paradise »

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. It's a lot of work tracking a bunch of monthly books and keeping them boxed till the last issue comes out and shipping them 4 at a time, but that's my problem not yours so... :)

ENIAC #1-4 Set pre-order - $20 shipped (in continental US), via FRIENDS & FAMILY (or add 3% to the total) paypal to store (AT) comicsandcards.net. Books will ship after issue #4 comes out. I can't promise any extra stuff, but if there is promo stuff available, we'll add it to the package. I have been talking to the boys about it but nothing so far.

Local customers who can pick up from any of our 3 locations in Los Angeles, the total is $16 plus tax (17.63) same place to pay. If you pay online please leave a note with your store of choice for pick up.

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.

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:

Ed,

Thanks so much for expanding this offering to boardies at large! :high-five:

Back in February when I first inquired, my LCS - MidtownComics for the record - said that there was a 10 book minimum to set up a pull list in any of their physical locations so that ended any efforts on my part to get this line of comics since I do not buy any other current monthly offerings and have no intentions of doing so (now that Walking Dead has ended - and that one I just picked off the shelf). I don't necessarily fault Midtown for this policy, but I was bummed nonetheless.

Thanks again,

Bill

ps - isn't it "holmes" and not homes? Maybe it's been updated to Ho'mes? :? Sorry, I am not up with current gibberish! :thumb:

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 like the old Valiant 12 cover deals plus variants and all that stuff. If I put it on the website, paypal gets some percentages and, when I add the cost of the comics, the labor cost to deal with each issue coming out, the packing and shipping cost, all of which has to come out of just $16, plus you add the fact that I am charging $4 for shipping, which I am subsidizing for at least half of the people buying (it will likely be more than $4 for anyone on east coast), the picture is not fantastic.

I am doing it for one simple reason. Dinesh. I hope that makes sense.

I don't quite understand this. Are we limited to one set per person? I have a 17 year old son who met Dinesh at NC Comicon years ago and we each wanted a set.

I put in a request via the Bad Idea website to a local comic store, but it’s been over a week and no response, so I’ll be sending you a payment later today. Thanks for setting this up!

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.

Alright, will do. I do want to support a local store of course, but as I’ve heard nothing from them it started to concern me. It’s not my regular store, so I don’t know how competent/on top of things the staff are. Of course, Coronavirus and computer snafus are additional factors to consider, as you point out. I’ll give ‘em a ring.

I sent my cash. Excited to see what Dinesh and the boys are doing, but the nearest shop in their program is about three hours away. I'm not even sure if they are still open or what.
