Bad Idea is delivering another good idea for their upcoming releases. The publisher isn’t releasing their comics digitally or in trades, instead, they’ll be oversized single issues packed with stories. And they’re packing those issues with brand-new, never-before-seen “B-Side” stories. These are short-form, self-contained comics. Each issue Bad Idea publishes will have an oversized, ad-free page count that will always feature a new “B-Side” tale.
Every month, that “B-Side” will feature a standalone, done-in-one dose of high potency comics storytelling unlike anything we’ve published before — new genres, new characters, new concepts.
The first “B-Side” launches in ENIAC #1 in March, the new comic from Matt Kindt, Tomas Giorello, and Diego Rodriguez. The comic will be 48 pages in a prestige format for $3.99.
Future “B-Sides” will feature all-new contributions from creators like Karl Bollers, Sarah Burrini, Mae Catt, Khari Evans, Melissa Flores, Klaus Janson, David Lapham, Peter Milligan, Alex Paknadel, Eliot Rahal, Sean Ryan, Robert Venditti, and many, many more.
