Bad Idea Comics' Non-Diamond Solicits of Matt Kindt and Doug Braithwaite's Eniac #1 for May 2020

I have no idea where you can order Bad Idea Comics' first comic, Eniac, scheduled for May 2020. That's why they have launched this as-yet-unfilled map of stores that will sell their comics. Just twenty stores at first, growing to fifty.

But that hasn't stopped them launching their May 2020 solicitations with details for Eniac #1 – even though they won't be distributed through Diamond.

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.
