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--an immeasurably mathematical model built to target the Axis war machine.
Everybody know 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 game the 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.

About Bad Idea Comics:
BAD IDEA’s mantra is “don’t do anything unless it’s special.” First and foremost, that means that we’re gong to produce a limited number of series at any given time. And each time one shows up in your store, it should be kind of a big deal.
That’s because our comics feature no variants, won’t be released digitally, and will not be collected into trade paperbacks, hardcovers, or other bookshelf formats. Monthly comic books, sold by comic book stores, are what we do.
All our books will come in a pristinely designed, prestige-format package all for the standard $3.99 cover price.
Lastly – and this part is important – we’re going to get things going by self-distributing our series to a select list of participating comic shop retailers. So this won't be found everywhere...but it will be at Rick's Comic City!!
