|BAD IDEA In Trouble With SDCC — Announces Matt Kindt Doppelgänger Workaround!|
|We officially deny all allegations that Comic-Con International has come down hard on BAD IDEA and the HERO TRADE: SACRED HEART SDCC program.|
Nevertheless, we concede that giving away comics at a SDCC panel might not be entirely allowed per their guidelines. But we will not, nor will we ever, buckle to corporate attempts to stifle and control the free-thinking and hedonist BAD IDEA philosophy. Instead, we will buckle because it’s too easy to turn up to a panel that has been scheduled and announced and get a copy of HERO TRADE: SACRED HEART. Where’s the fun in that? No, we want all the BAD IDEA fans to feel the joyful anguish of hunting for Matt Kindt in vain. The thrilling pain of watching the hours tick away while you search and wonder if he’s run out of copies already. So, we are amending the HERO TRADE: SACRED HEART program to EXCLUDE any panel or signing appearances.
Please do not approach Matt Kindt during a panel or signing. He will not have copies of THE HERO TRADE: SACRED HEART. In fact, he won’t even be Matt Kindt! Instead, we are announcing the Matt Kindt Doppelgänger workaround (guaranteed to thwart archaic rules about giveaways!)
During any Matt Kindt panel or signing appearances, Matt Kindt will cease to be Matt Kindt. Instead, a different individual, designated by BAD IDEA at their sole desecration, will be Matt Kindt. These designees will be announced by BAD IDEA shortly before SDCC.
To recap, in order to secure a copy of HERO TRADE: SACRED HEART, all you have to do is find Matt Kindt in-and-around the convention – OR a Matt Kindt doppelgänger during a Matt Kindt panel or signing appearance – and say to him, “I hear you have something for me.”
The situation is literally irrelevant (unless it’s an appearance.) He’s having an important looking meeting at the Marriott pool bar? Interrupt. He’s wandering the Gaslamp? Chase him down. Cruising the show floor? Now you’ve got him! He’s hiding in a men’s room stall? Squeeze on in under that door. He’s on a panel? Stop. Turn around. Find the designated Matt Kindt doppelgänger instead. Whatever the situation (other than an appearance) make sure to say, “I hear you have something for me.” He will have no choice but to hand over a copy of the BAD IDEA SDCC exclusive, HERO TRADE: SACRED HEART! With a little luck, he might even sign it for you. And, if all else fails, you could try your luck at the San Diego Comic-Con Tiki party at Bali Hai on Saturday night!
