Last week the world was introduced to a new comic book publisher looking to shake up the way we receive and read comics called, BAD IDEA. They described the kind of books they were looking to produce, creators that would be involved as well as their out of the box idea on how these books would be distributed.
In that same press release, BAD IDEA also teased us about their first book they will be releasing in May titled, ENIAC. This prestige-format limited series will have an oversized 40 page first issue. It will feature the creative team of New York Times best selling writer Matt Kindt, with artwork by Doug Braithwaite, colors by Diego Rodriguez and cover artist Lewis LaRosa. You can check out his first cover below!
Here is ENIAC as described by BAD IDEA:
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.
Along with that we have some preview pages also provided by BAD IDEA by Braithwaite and Rodriguez from ENIAC #1, you can check out below!
The preview of this series has definitely got me hooked for the first issue. It will be interesting to see if they reveal that the ENIAC is also responsible for other events that occurred in American history. What do you think of the preview for the first offering from BAD IDEA?
BAD IDEA’s ENIAC #1 hits select comic book shelves May 6th.
