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.

Ho Ho, Oh No, It’s Slay Bells #1 – Bad Idea’s Santa Spectacular Kicks Butt, Takes Names with Zeb Wells & David Lafuente

Next summer, Bad Idea is taking the #1 spot on Christmas classics forever with a king-sized holiday spectacular so touching, so hilarious, and so relentlessly bloodthirsty that it has to be released in July!

That’s because Emmy Award-winning writer Zeb Wells, powerhouse artist David Lafuente, and colorist Ulises Arreola are giving the Christmas season what it’s always needed – firepower – as Bad Idea’s battering ram of a rollout continues in Slay Bells #1– a seasonally twisted tale of broken dreams, dead reindeer, and insatiable revenge that will forever live in infamy…and our hearts.

Every Christmas Eve, little Bobby Hamilton and his father rise at dawn for an early morning hunting trip. It was their favorite tradition – until they accidentally killed a certain red-nosed reindeer. They should have known better. They shouldn’t have tried to cover it up. Because Santa Claus knows that they’ve been naughty – and, now like so many fragile Christmas ornaments violently shaken free, the yuletide peace of a quaint Midwestern farming hamlet will forever be shattered as Old Saint Nick comes to town to reap the sweetest gift of all: vengeance.

You’ve heard of black comedies? Well, this is the first one that’s not just black, but red and green and covered in reams of extremely flammable tinsel that’s already been banned in Canada! And it comes packed with all of the holiday-themed accoutrements we’ve come to know and love:

  • Stockings full of bullets
  • Weapons of opportunity
  • Red clothes that don’t show other people’s blood
  • The cries of our enemies
  • Fruit cake
Slay Bells #1
