Atop of this, all panel attendees who follow the Kickstarter pre-launch page below of Bad Idea’s other highly anticipated campaign, Robert Venditti’s Tankers, will be eligible for a free copy of A GOOD BOY. Though supplies are limited going first come first serve for those who follow

Tankers is a satire comic written by Robert Venditti and illustrated by Juan José RypWhat’s unique regarding the marketing of this latest campaign is the marketing tied to a video for Dinosaur Island Expedition Part IV.

In the trailer, we see a video for the comic book series writer Robert Venditti whom, along with a small film crew, set out on a 3-day expedition to Dinosaur Island but apparently, months later, returned with no crew. 

It’s a delightfully ridiculous premise of their upcoming comic series Tankers. A creative series parodying dinosaurs, mechs, and oil. The creative stories and campaign artists for the upcoming launch continue to grow. Details of Tankers can only be found on their kickstarter, which you can follow by clicking this link. Official description below.

TANKERS — a comics extravaganza of bone-shredding destruction, wanton corporate malfeasance, and buckets and buckets of ammunition. Like a Saturday morning cartoon that’s run irresponsibly overbudget, TANKERS is going to take all of our insecurities about mankind’s most self-destructive impulses and turn them up until the knob snaps off. 

Joining forces with New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (SUPERMAN) and Juan José Ryp (WOLVERINE) is a monstrous line-up of blockbuster artists ready to bring TANKERS back! We’ll be revealing each and every one of them, as well as details on the mountain of new pages, the new stories, the insane once-in-a-lifetime dinosaur artifacts we’ve secured just for this campaign, and, of course, the giant, villainous secret at the fast-beating heart of this TANKERS campaign.
