'Hank Howard, Pizza Detective in Caligula's Safe' 24-Hour Comic Adds "B-Sides" with Superhero Story 'Save Now'

What better way to release an epic tome of pizza-based, neo-noir crime fiction than by putting too many toppings on said pizza!!


HANK HOWARD, PIZZA DETECTIVE in CALIGULA'S SAFE by Robert Venditti (TANKERS) and David Lapham (THE HERO TRADE) -- available for takeout or delivery at BAD IDEA Destination Stores on May 12th, but only for 24 hours!!! -- is coming with a big heap of pineapple to go with the pepperoni.

That's right, HANK HOWARD, PIZZA DETECTIVE in CALIGULA'S SAFE will include a BAD IDEA B-Side!

And yes, that B-Side is the superhero epic, SAVE NOW that we keep teasing, by Matt Kindt (ENIAC -- issue 3 is out this Wednesday) and Tomas Giorello (ODINN'S EYE -- shh, we haven't officially announced that one yet)!!

But that's not all...We're also proud to announce that HANK HOWARD, PIZZA DETECTIVE in CALIGULA'S SAFE comes with a side of "credits page" (predictable perhaps, but satisfying nonetheless), a pin-up to quench your thirst by David Lapham of THE LOT (which debuts in July! Wait, does that make this the first appearance? Can a pin-up even be a first appearance?) and for dessert, a brand-new entry in the BAD IDEA Handbook written by none other than BAD IDEA's OHOTMU Stan, Warren Simons.

So don't miss this thrilling and uncompromising new neo-noir adventure delving deep into the darkest corners of our national obsession with crime and pizza chains. We've packed the book full of awesomeness and given it the entry level price of just one dollar! At a price like that, everyone can try their first taste of the BAD IDEA difference. But remember: In addition to being governed by the regular BAD IDEA rules, CALIGULA'S SAFE will only be on sale for 24 hours.

Every store is able to sell CALIGULA'S SAFE by all the same means they sell every other BAD IDEA comic -- from in-store, off-the-shelf sales to mail order to phone orders or pre-orders. At the stroke of midnight on May 12th, however, any unsold copies are forbidden from sale and will be returned to BAD IDEA HQ. We will be reprinting the HANK HOWARD, PIZZA DETECTIVE in CALIGULA'S SAFE story in all its glory in one of our upcoming December 2021 releases.
