ICYMI – BAD IDEA Heads to New York Comic Con!

THE DESTROYER Is Coming to Destination Stores This Christmas!
And more!
We’re headed to the Big Apple, baby!!! And we hope to see as many of you there as we can, too!

It’s been a busy week for the BAD IDEA team so we’ve got a recap for you of all the latest exciting developments from your favorite upstart comics publisher.

First: we’re back at NYCC this year and determined to relive last year’s incredible experience with another amazing, once-in-a-lifetime adventure! And we’re bringing two amazing convention exclusivesfor you to earn — SAVE NOW NYCC #1 and MISSION GO: A TANKERS STORY #1. 

Plus: don’t forget to follow our brand new SAVE NOW Kickstarter campaign. If you’re in New York this weekend, you’ll need to follow the campaign and then stop by the BAD IDEA booth (3641) or the BAD IDEA panel (Oct 14, Room 406.1 @ 8:45 PM) to earn NYCC exclusive copies of SAVE NOW and TANKERS!

And the latest: we’ve got the surprise release of two brand-new titles – THE DESTROYER and INEBRIO HORSEFEATHERS – coming to BAD IDEA destination stores !

SAVE NOW is the story of a man who can ‘save’ any point in his life and return to it, reliving his life from that moment forward with the ability to change his actions. But with great power, also comes great pain. He is cursed with only being able to travel backwards, never forwards, and is burdened by having to spend his relived life in real time. Travel back 6 days, and he must relive those days in full, all the while, aging in real time.

Thanks to BAD IDEA, you too will be able to experience this incredible power, and if you’re smart enough, and fast enough, you can earn yourself a free copy of SAVE NOW NYCC #1!

Here’s how:

  1. Come by the BAD IDEA booth (3641) at one of the four designated times below and secure your racing bib.
  2. We will assign to you 3 locations on the convention floor to race to. A BAD IDEA representative will be at each location but only one of them will have the redemption sticker you need.
  3. Race to the locations until you’ve located the redemption sticker then return to booth 3641.
  4. You only have 10 minutes to complete this task. If you return within that time you will have earned a copy of SAVE NOW NYCC #1.
  5. Get writer Matt Kindt to hand letter custom, 1-of-1 captions into your copy and make it a completely unique story!

Now the small print!
– To qualify to race, you must sign up to follow the SAVE NOW Kickstarter campaign. To follow the campaign, simply click here and then click the NOTIFY ME ON LAUNCH button to learn when the campaign will launch.
– You do not have to visit all 3 locations, you only need to find and return with the redemption sticker.
– If you return after 10 minutes, fear not, hold onto your racing bib because you can get back in line and try again or return at another one of the designated times.
– SAVE NOW NYCC #1 is strictly limited to two hundred (200) copies. Only the first 200 racers to successfully return with a redemption sticker will earn a copy. Once all copies are gone the race will be over.
– Last year we sold out midway through the first day of NYCC. We anticipate another quick sell out. If you visit the BAD IDEA booth and find the race is already over, don’t fret. Come say ‘hi’ because we’ve planned a very special gift for all those who missed the race.
– A pro tip! Much like the journey within SAVE NOW, you will likely be visiting locations you’ve already been to during New York Comic Con. Use this knowledge to find the fastest route. Time will be of the essence. 

We will only have 200 copies of SAVE NOW NYCC #1 available. Plan to come to the earliest designated time you can. And get excited because this is the Save Now-iest SAVE NOW yet. Each and every copy of SAVE NOW NYCC #1 is built to be a unique 1-of-1 comic. The fateful final SAVE NOW conversation with Integrity International is once again the subject of the story but this time we’ve left several captions blank and writer Matt Kindt has graciously agreed to personally hand letter dialogue into your copy, making each and every copy of SAVE NOW NYCC #1 a unique story!

Room 406.1

That’s right, 8:45 PM, dawg! At night! Saturday night!

Why? Because we’re hard core like that!! This is absolutely not retaliation by NYCC for last year’s STOP BAD IDEA picketing…at least we hope not.

Either way, we’re leaning in and bringing goodies. Not only will you learn what makes BAD IDEA tick, discover what’s in store for the future, and get the chance to ask questions directly but we’re bringing limited edition BAD IDEA Donut boxes for the first fifty (50) attendees, actual Perfect Donuts (yes, we made a new batch!) for everyone else, and you can earn the convention exclusive comic book! All attendees who are signed up to follow the SAVE NOW Kickstarter campaign are eligible for one (1) free copy of the convention exclusive MISSION GO: A TANKERS STORY #1, available in full color for the first time and only in limited supplies. To follow the campaign, simply click here and then click the NOTIFY ME ON LAUNCH button to learn when the campaign will launch.
