Bad Idea’s “secret” comic The First Seven Days is out today

Comic publisher Bad Idea is up to more games, this time a “secret release”. The First Seven Days was solicited through Diamond under a new publisher, B-Side Press. The comic featured fake creator credits, a sparse synopsis, and odd cover. Since it was through Diamond, every store had an opportunity to order copies of the comic, as you didn’t have to be a part of Bad Idea’s limited “destination store” program.

The comic is already a hot item, hard to find, with prices of upwards of $75 as of this post.

How this “helps” stores beyond selling the comic at a much higher price than cover due to demand and low supply? We’re not quite sure, but it’s another odd move from the rather intriguing publisher that might be known more for stunts than their actual comics.

Good luck in your search!

Peter David needs our help

Peter David

A GoFundMe has been organized to help Peter David who has suffered multiple health problems that have compounded. Kidney failure, a series of strokes, and a mild heart attack have caused medical bills to pile up.

David is the winner of multiple awards and written novels, comics, and more. His run on the Incredible Hulk is legendary along with time spent on X-Factor, Spider-Man, Star Trek, Action Comics, and more.

He’s had a heart monitor put in his chest and physical therapy is helping.

The GoFundMe has a goal of $40,000. Regular updates are being shared by his family on that page.

Baldwin’s Big Adventure

Writer: Annie Auerbach
Artist: Ruiz Rommel
Cover: Ruiz Rommel
32 pages | Adventure | $16.99 | All Ages

Baldwin is a simple Switcher Train whose job is to move trains, cars, and cabooses around the train yard, readying them for their long-haul journeys. In reality, he aspires to be like his father, Big Al, the most famous of the world’s steam engines-but new and powerful diesel engines are now replacing the older steam engines. After Big Al doesn’t return from a long journey, Baldwin sets out along the wide-open rails in search of his father, along with his best friend Bobber the caboose. Baldwin’s Big Adventure is the story of the relationship between a son and father, friendship in the face of the unknown, and learning how to grow into who you want to become. This is a tale that continues to chug around every bend toward the horizon and ultimate goal-even if it starts with just a small, unassuming switcher train with a giant heart!

It’s an age-old story: for her birthday, Dul wanted the hottest new video game, but her mom accidentally bought her Super Trash Clash-one of the worst games ever made. But years later, when an older Dul finds a cartridge in a vintage store, memories come flooding back: simpler times when she could disappear into electronic worlds or spend hours battling with friends and enemies, and the love and sacrifices that bound her family together. This vivid and action-packed graphic novel from Mexican rising star Edgar Camacho is a heartwarming reflection on what gaming means to kids, crammed full of Easter eggs and tributes to the games that shaped our culture.

Seattle, 2008. Networked computers and video game consoles have connected millions across the globe in virtual combat… and an insidious intelligence has taken notice. The insectoid Nebulans, would-be conquerors of Earth, have hijacked the MMOs and uploaded the collective fighting techniques and strategy of gamers worldwide directly into the central processing unit of their cyborg champion. What chance does Godzilla have at victory when the vicious opponent Gigan has been augmented by the savagery of all humanity?
