We still need more to reach 2.6 million dollars to guarantee BAD IDEA ends their mad reign. Incredible books like ESCAPE FROM WYOMING and ORC ISLAND cannot be allowed to come out.

Enter: Joe Quesada.

Former Marvel Comics Chief Creative Officer, former Marvel Editor-in-Chief, member of the MCU Creative Committee, co-creator of Painkiller Jane and Ash, founder of the Marvel Knights and Ultimate Marvel imprints, writer, director, who got his start as a colorist at Valiant is returning to perhaps what he does best — superstar artist.

The fabled hitmaker, who recently announced that he was returning to DC for a series of high profile Batman covers, has lent his immense talents to the STOP BAD IDEA movement by homaging the now-classic, original HERO TRADE cover by David Lapham. To celebrate, we’re issuing a brand-new edition of THE HERO TRADE: HERO FOR SALE — the first story in THE HERO TRADE saga. This edition comes in full color, for the first time, and will feature the incredible cover by Joe Quesada. We give you HERO TRADE 1: THE JOE QUESADA EDITION.

  • Signatures & sketches by Matt Kindt!
  • BAD IDEA’s first mini comic!
  • The first BAD IDEA treasury-sized edition!
  • A reproduction of the original script to HERO TRADE: HERO FOR SALE!
