Read the Entire First BAD IDEA B-SIDE: “SAVE NOW” by Matt Kindt, Tomas Giorello & Diego Rodriguez – Inside ENIAC #1!

What could possibly be better than a comic book? Easy: EVEN MORE COMICS! That’s exactly what you’re getting with the blockbusting, double-barreled, oversized, and unapologetic ENIAC #1 – the much-anticipated FIRST ISSUE spectacular and 48-page debut of BAD IDEA landing in select comic shops around the world on March 3, 2021.

First: The colossal first chapter of ENIAC by New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT), incendiary artist Doug Braithwaite (Justice), and powerhouse colorist Diego Rodriguez (Hellblazer: Rise & Fall). In 2021, it’s down to two covert operatives to save the 21st century from the 20th century’s greatest secret: ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer) – a government-sanctioned artificial intelligence that secretly defied its creators to end World War II at Nagasaki, but created a far more powerful threat in the aftermath. Now, after decades in the shadows, ENIAC is about to execute its endgame with a countdown that could erase mankind once and for all.

Then: BAD IDEA debuts its very first “B-SIDE” bonus story – “SAVE NOW” – reuniting the chart-topping creative team of multi-hyphenate writer Matt Kindt, artistic dynamo Tomas Giorello (X-O Manowar, Conan), and colorist supreme Diego Rodriguez. The first in a new series of brand-new, self-contained short-form features — BAD IDEA’s “B-SIDES” — that will appear in EVERY BAD IDEA ISSUE, “SAVE NOW” is a sharp-edged piece of sci-fi/superhero shrapnel that will lodge itself in your cerebral cortex for a good long while.

What’s more these B-SIDES feature all-original, never-before-seen stories and characters that take full advantage of the format to push the boundaries of comics…and who knows, if they catch on, we might just give them a bigger stage to shine.

In fact, we’re so excited about “SAVE NOW,” we’re letting you read the whole dang thing right here. Here’s a sweet little summary for ya:

Your name is Saver. You are a superhero. You have a one-of-a-kind-superpower that makes you your team’s weapon of last resort. You can “save” reality and then restart it again from that point. You always save the day. Until now.

On top of all that, we’re also throwing in: a high-end, prestige-format package with matte-laminate covers and heavyweight interior paper stock; no ads; and bonus art and surprises from some of your favorite (and soon-to-be favorite) creators working today.
