BAD IDEA – the unruly and experimental new comic book publisher coming soon to select comic shops – today announced at the annual ComicsPRO Industry Conference in Portland, Oregon that, in response to a deluge of inquiries from comic shop retailers throughout North America and around the world, the company will be more than doubling the size of its first wave of participating retailers from 20 to 50 stores, beginning with the debut of ENIAC #1 by Matt Kindt and Doug Braithwaite in May 2020.
BAD IDEA will be kicking things off on May 6th, 2020 with the the historic debut of ENIAC #1 – the monumental, 40-page first issue of BAD IDEA’s prestige-format premiere from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT), artistic powerhouse Doug Braithwaite (Justice), colorist Diego Rodriguez (X-O Manowar), and Harvey Award-nominated cover artist Lewis LaRosa (Punisher MAX). Here’s the gist:
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 and incendiary artist Doug Braithwaite comes ENIAC #1, the debut series from BAD IDEA – the disruptive 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.
And, hey, in the meantime, don’t forget: BAD IDEA…Written by MATT KINDT // Art by DOUG BRAITHWAITE // Colors by DIEGO RODRIGUEZ // Cover by LEWIS LAROSA and only available in comic book stores on May 6, 2020.
