Last week Bad Idea teased a new mini-comic to be dropped into selected stores this Wednesday 7th April. Called Hank Howard, Pizza Detective, two days ahead of its in-store debut we get a preview from Robert Venditti and David Lapham.
The 16-page strip within is entitled ‘Caligula’s Safe’ and here’s more details in the official synopsis accompanying the preview pages:
“It’s a thrilling and uncompromising new neo-noir adventure delving deep into the darkest corners of our national obsession with crime and pizza chains. It also serves as the introduction to an epic new hero in the BAD IDEA pantheon — Hank Howard, not the champion we need but certainly the one we deserve.”
An original comic book, in black and white and costing just $1! But, will you be able to get a copy if your store is selling Bad Idea comics? Especially as stores have been instructed to sell this new comic for only 24 hours. Although, I doubt there will be too many left by then. So, you might want to contact your store ahead of time, or get there early. Just don’t forget your mask.
