Bad Idea Is Selling Jobs in Comics For $1000 Each – Bleeding Cool News

So you want to break into the comic book industry but don’t want to spend an age on your artistic skill to create a portfolio of work? Or time spent persuading wannabe artists to draw the comic you’ve written (and getting them to finish it)? Or schmoozing publishers at conventions, trying to get hired as an editorial intern and working your wat up? Or writing puff pieces for websites about publishers you hope will hire you in marketing, to write the very press releases you have been copying? Or becoming an A-list actor so you can walk into a comics gig?
Well, do you have a thousand dollars right now? Because, honestly, this is probably an easier and much cheaper way to get what you want. Bad Idea Comics is a relatively new comics publisher from Dinesh Shamdasani, Atom Freeman, Joshua Johns, Karl Bollers, and Anthony Militano. A direct-to-retailer publisher, eschewing digital and trade paperbacks in favour of one-cover one-per-person comic book sales from big comic book names. The new rebranding has seen them, continue to launch PR stunts to a) get attention and b) raise money by exploiting FOMO of comic collectors, even as the details are increasingly made more ridiculous. And this is definitely in that ballpark.
