236 Comic Book Stores With Bad Idea Comics For 2021

Bad Idea Comics has been bumping up their distribution network of comic book stores ahead of their launch of ENIAC #1 by Matt Kindt and Doug Braithwaite in March with a mission to do things differently. The people who brought you The Second Life Of Valiant Entertainment. Their own distribution. Monthly comic books, sold exclusively in comic book stores. No digital releases. No trade paperbacks or hardcovers. And no variant covers, either. No more than two issues in a given month, extra-long page counts, surprise guest appearances by big-name artists, standalone bonus stories in every issue and no more than one copy per customer. Here are all the comic book stores that will be stocking Bad Idea Comics so far…
