Bad Idea Teases ‘Tankers’ #1 With A 10 Page First Look
by Olly MacNamee
Bad Idea is ramping up its promotional game again this week with a first look at another one of its forthcoming titles. Today brings us a rather generous art preview of Tankers #1 by Robert Venditti, Juan Jose Ryp and Jordie Bellaire.
Now, is it just me, or are comic book synopses getting longer?
“The CEO of global energy conglomerate Greenleaf Oil has just discovered a terrifying secret: the planet only has a decade or less of petroleum left before it’s gone forever. But he has a plan to make sure his great-great grandchildren can continue to generate maximum shareholder value – and secure his own legacy in the process. Rather than develop a game-changing renewable energy source through the power of corporate innovation, Greenleaf has perfected the next best thing – time travel (duh) – so that a team of six field-rat contractors armed to the teeth in individually customized mech suits can go back to the Cretaceous Period, tweak the trajectory of the meteor that killed the dinosaurs, and give mankind another 500 millennia worth of oil reserves. What could go wrong? Only all of human history, of course – because when Greenleaf’s team of Tankers come home, they’ll discover that not only did the dinosaurs never die out, they’ve kept evolving for another 60 million years…and they’re more pissed off than ever.”
Tankers will be a a three-issue bi-monthly series devoting March 2021 in sleeted stores carrying Bad Idea comics.
