BRZRKR #1 Gets an Ultra Rare Variant Cover Signed by Keanu Reeves

BOOM! Studios has revealed a brand new incentive variant cover for the highly anticipated BRZRKR #1, with art by Jonboy Meyers and signed by the iconic Keanu Reeves for his Must Read comic book writing debut. The signed variant cover will be made available to comic book stores as a 1-in-1000 incentive. BRZRKR is a twelve-issue limited series by Reeves and New York Times bestselling co-writer Matt Kindt, acclaimed artist Ron Garney, colorist Bill Crabtree, and letterer Clem Robins, about an immortal being’s eternal struggle with the hidden truth behind his existence, available in comic book stores worldwide on February 24, 2021.

The man known only as B. is half-mortal and half-god, cursed and compelled to violence…even at the sacrifice of his sanity.  But after wandering the world for centuries, B. may have finally found a refuge – working for the U.S. government to fight the battles too violent and too dangerous for anyone else. In exchange, B. will be granted the one thing he desires – the truth about his endless blood-soaked existence…and how to end it.

BRZRKR #1 features main cover art by superstar illustrator Rafael Grampá and variant cover art by artists Mark Brooks, Lee Bermejo, and Dan Mora, as well as the 1-in-1000 signed edition variant cover with art by Meyers, and more.

Bad Idea Has some Promotional Ideas

Bad Idea Crass Promotional Module v1

With their launch in March 2021 with ENIAC #1, Bad Idea is loading comic shops up with promotional material to get comic readers excited.

The Bad Idea Crass Promotional Module v1 gives a preview of the various series coming our way. It features 16 pages of preview content of titles including:

  • ENIAC #1 by writer Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT) & artist Doug Braithwaite (Justice)
  • TANKERS #1 by Robert Venditti (Justice League) & Juan Jose Ryp (Wolverine)
  • WHALESVILLE #1 by Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT) & Adam Pollina (X-Force)
  • THE LOT #1 by Marguerite Bennett (Animosity) & Renato Guedes (DCeased)
  • SLAY BELLS #1 by Zeb Wells (Hellions) & David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man)

Plus: This bad boy also has A BUNCH OF SUPER-SECRET SURPRISES that you shouldn’t take pictures and tweet, SO DEFINITELY DON’T DO THAT!!!

Stores aren’t just a shop, they’re an art gallery — and it’s about damn time that someone treated it as such. That’s why Bad Idea is sending stores a museum-worthy framed poster. Yes, framed. And not just in one of those stylish, modern-thin black frames that looks good everywhere, but in a garish, lavishly adorned, 16×20 overly ornate gold frame that is impossible to miss. (Retailers: check your emailed instructions for the minimum required time it needs to be displayed, per “the rules.”) But don’t worry, Bad Idea will be sending a new 16×20 promo poster to pop in there every month, and they’ll be rounding out the minimum display time with one hell of a poster surprise, too!

This display stands approximately 16 inches high and handles two (count ’em!) rows of up to 25 comics apiece. That’s double-sided header cards promoting Bad Idea’s upcoming March 3, 2021 launch date and ENIAC #1, too, for once you’ve got those puppies in hand. In the meantime, you can pop your Bad Idea promo books in there or whatever in there once those run out. BUT REMEMBER: This lives on your counter. It is now an immovable part of your counter. These are the sacred rules of Bad Idea, and they are inflexible and unchanging.

Exclusive: Get a First Look at ENIAC #2

The launch of Bad Idea is one of the reasons we’re excited for 2021! The publisher launches in March with ENIAC #1 from Matt Kindt, Doug Braithwaite, and Diego Rodriguez. But what after?

We’ve got some hints as to what to expect from the first issue, but what about ENIAC #2!?

We’ve got an exclusive first look at the second issue including the cover, some art, and the solicit text! The comic comes to store shelves on April 7, 2021. The comic is by Kindt, Braithwaite, and Rodriguez and features an all-new Bad Idea B-Side by Lewis Larosa and Diego Rodriguez! It’s 32 pages of awesome for $3.99.

Remember, you need to make sure to pre-order comics from Bad Idea, and not all stores will have them! Find a store by you and make sure to pre-order them today so you don’t miss out.


After ENIAC #1 arrives on stands on March 3, 2021, you’ll never guess what happens next — THE NEXT ISSUE!

Yes, you’re reading that right! In a move that is as sequential as it is audacious, Bad Idea will be following up its momentously monumental and greedily anticipated March debut with (gasps) ENIAC #2 on April 7, 2021!

For the same $3.99 (cheap!) cover price, Bad Idea’s comics-addled readership can head into select comic shops worldwide to secure their second dose of all-out ENIAC-TION from the high-caliber creative team of New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT), incendiary artist Doug Braithwaite (Justice), and powerhouse colorist Diego Rodriguez (Hellblazer: Rise & Fall). PLUS: This ad-free, 32-page stunner is going to come complete with yet another ALL-NEW BAD IDEA “B-SIDE” story so shocking that we have to keep it under wraps until it hits stands.

What to know what to expect from Bad Idea’s shockingly secondary release in ENIAC #2? Here’s a little peek:

Seventy-seven years ago, the United States unlocked the key to defeating the Axis powers, but, in their desperation to end the war, accidentally created a far more powerful threat: ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer). Designed to be a cutting-edge breakthrough in supercomputing that could deliver a decisive victory to the Allies, ENIAC did just that…by ordering the bombing Nagasaki without human consent or approval. A fully autonomous A.I free from the bounds of programming or morality, ENIAC spent the decades since manipulating global superpowers from the shadows, secretly shaping everything we thought we knew about the history of the geopolitical order. And, throughout it all, one classified question has plagued presidents and prime ministers, generals and spymasters alike: “What is ENIAC planning next?”

Now, after years of silence, ENIAC has re-emerged with a 72-hour countdown until it unleashes every weapon in Earth’s atomic arsenal. Its motives? Unknowable to humankind. Its endgame? Destruction on an unthinkable scale. As ENIAC’s clock rockets toward zero, it’s down to two covert operatives to infiltrate a Russian black site and free the one man alive who knows how to kill the machine…before it erases mankind, once and for all.

In a world beset by crisis, only one thing is certain: Bad Idea begins with ENIAC #1 on March 3, 2021…and then continues with ENIAC #2 on April 7, 2021…and then moves forward with ENIAC #3 in May…and, in daring move no one could have possibly expected, sallies forth with ENIAC #4 in June! Four issues in four months — it’s tough, but that’s how we came to play at Bad Idea.

Bad Idea Kicks off in March 2021 with ENIAC #1

At the height of World War II, the world’s most ingenious minds began a race to create a super-weapon capable of ending the war with the push of a button. One of those projects gave us the atom bomb…and another produced the world’s first supercomputer: ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer) — an immeasurably complex mathematical model that targeted the Axis war machine by calculating missile trajectories and troop deployments.

Everybody knows that. It’s real-life American history.

Or so we were told.

On August 6th, 1945, the United States dropped the nuclear bomb on Hiroshima.

Three days later, a second bomb was dropped on Nagasaki… Only President Truman wasn’t the one who gave order.

It was ENIAC.

In the Allies’ determination to end the war, they had accidentally created the world’s first autonomous machine intelligence…which had quickly deduced that one bomb wouldn’t be enough.

But ENIAC’s real plan was only just beginning…

Now, 75 years later, an encrypted countdown has just been detected in Earth’s satellite network and mankind only has three days left before ENIAC launches every weapon in the planet’s nuclear arsenal simultaneously. With few options and even less time, the Secretary of Defense has just given two covert operatives the most important mission in human history: kill ENIAC.

From the minds of New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT), incendiary artistDoug Braithwaite  (Justice), and extraordinary colorist Diego Rodriguez (Hellblazer: Rise & Fall) comes ENIAC #1, the debut series from BAD IDEA – the unruly and experimental new comic publisher pushing the bounds of the medium (and your patience) one issue a time. This is no ordinary comic book… This is the long-classified history of an unspoken superpower more formidable than all of Earth’s nations combined…and now its story can finally be told.

Bad Idea Mega-Sizes their Comics with B-Side Stories

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 BollersSarah BurriniMae CattKhari EvansMelissa FloresKlaus Janson, David LaphamPeter MilliganAlex PaknadelEliot RahalSean RyanRobert Venditti, and many, many more.

Here’s just a few of the Bad Idea “B-Sides” coming soon to a comic book near you:

In 2021, Bad Idea finally does what we’ve been threatening to do all along: Actually publish comics!

At long last, the runaway train of comics anticipation hits a hairpin turn this March as writer Matt Kindt and artist Doug Braithwaite take point at the helm of Bad Idea’s long-awaited, much-anticipated, dizzy spell-inducing debut series in ENIAC #1!

Bad Idea has revealed an extended, 10-page look inside the must-read milestone-in-the-making.

At the height of World War II, the world’s most ingenious minds began a race to create a super-weapon capable of ending the war with the push of a button. One of those projects gave us the atom bomb…and another produced the world’s first supercomputer: ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer) – an immeasurably complex mathematical model that targeted the Axis war machine by calculating missile trajectories and troop deployments.

Featuring an all-new cover by Lewis LaRosa and practically bursting out of its comic book-sized muscle tee with more than 40 pages of content (including a top-secret, standalone bonus story).

Get a Look at Whalesville #1 from Matt Kindt, Adam Pollina, Matt Hollingsworth, and Bad Idea

It’s a tale as old as time: Boy meets whale, whale swallows boy, boy discovers tiny town inside whale…and then the adventure really begins!

Washing up in comic shops everywhere this May, First Mate (and New York Times best-selling writer) Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT), Captain (and artistic architect) Adam Pollina, and Chief Engineer (and Eisner Award-winning colorist) Matt Hollingsworth steer Bad Idea over the horizon and into its first truly all ages tale with Whalesville #1 – a majestic, whale-sized one-shot spectacular told in the tradition of Hayao Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli and Pixar!

When young Wawae – the seaborn son of a whaling captain – is thrown overboard and swallowed whole by a whale, he knows his father will relentlessly pursue revenge against the creature that stole away his boy. What he didn’t expect, however, is what he’s about to find inside: the town of “Whalesville” – a colorful, cobbled-together village inhabited by an astounding collection of talking sea creatures, including a crab named Caleb, an angler fish called Angela, and a seadragon that prefers to go by Lilly. But, to Wawae’s new friends, Whalesville isn’t just their home, it’s the whole world – and they don’t understand the danger that now pursues them from above the waves or that they are even inside a whale at all. To rescue his new best buddies, Wawae will have to convince them of the truth…and save Whalesville before his own father sends them sinking into the inky depths forever.

The comic is told almost entirely inmeticulously rendered double-page spreads. Whalesville #1 is just one of the tasty, comic book-sized morsels Bad Idea will be serving up throughout spring and summer 2021.
