Bad Idea Comics Adds Even More Comic Shops Worldwide


Earlier this year, we told you that Bad Idea was a dangerously unruly and equally experimental new comic book publisher with one straightforward mission: Monthly comic books, sold exclusively in comic book stores. No digital releases. No trade paperbacks or hardcovers. And no variant covers, either. Just super high-quality comics packed from cover to cover with audaciously entertaining storytelling in a single sharp-looking package.


And, because we’ll never publish more than two issues in a given month, every single issue we produce has to look and feel special. To that end, we’ve been tinkering away on books with enormously extra-long page counts, surprise guest appearances by some of your favorite artists, and even standalone bonus stories in EVERY issue we publish. Because we like comics and think if you’re going to sink your bucks into one of ours, it should be awesome.



But there’s one catch, you see: BAD IDEA’s new releases won’t be available everywhere all at once. From the get-go, BAD IDEA has always intended to self-distribute its titles to a carefully selected roster of friendly neighborhood comic shops with the grit and vision to do things “the Bad Idea way.”


Their crusade began with just 20 retail partners. Within weeks, that number had rocketed skyward to 100. Now, Bad Idea can boldly proclaim that its first wave of destination store retail partners will top more than 150 stores with over 200 individual locations on three continents when our first release – ENIAC #1 by New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT) and incendiary artist Doug Braithwaite (Justice) – hits shelves on March 3, 2021.



I’m told that they will only continue to add more from there.



Behold Bad Idea’s complete list of participating destination store retailers in its resplendent glory below (**current as of November 24, 2020**) and we encourage you to start preparing for ENIAC #1 now – March is just around the corner, after all. To make sure you secure your copy of Bad Idea’s debut issue, either contact your preferred retailer from the list below or simply visit and follow the instructions to submit your pre-order today.

Comic geek, movie nerd, father, and husband - but not necessarily in that order. Former captain of this ship o' fools secretly training everyone's computers and snarkphone spell-checkers to misspell 'supposebly.'
