Jurassic Sized Comics: Bad Idea Offer Up A Preview Of ‘Tankers’ #1

by Olly MacNamee

Robert Venditti (Justice League), artist Juan Jose Ryp (Wolverine), and colour artist, Andrew Dalhouse (Batman) let loose Tankers #1 this Spring from Bad Idea.

Shipping bi-monthly starting this April, each of the three issues will be double sized and will include an original, as yet unannounced, back-up strip, or ‘B-Side’ as Bad Idea are keen for us to call them.

“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 #1 is out Wednesday 7th April, 2021 at selected stores.

And remember, Bad Idea promises “no variants, no trades, no digital, select stores, perennially available Not First Printings and no more than two comics a month – just monthly comics, sold in comic book shops.”
