Expected publication: October 21st 2013 by Dreamspinner Press

Pages: 333

Summary: Some mistakes are worth making.

Reclusive comic book artist Trip Spector spends his life doodling super-square, straitlaced superheroes, hiding from his fans, and crushing on his unattainable boss until he meets the dork of his dreams. Silas Goolsby is a rowdy FX makeup creator with a loveless love life and a secret streak of geek who yearns for unlikely rescues and a truly creative partnership.

Against their better judgment, they fall victim to chemistry, and what starts as infatuation quickly grows tender and terrifying. With Silas’s help, Trip gambles his heart and his art on a rotten plan: sketching out Scratch, a “very graphic novel” that will either make his name or wreck his career. But even a smash can’t save their world if Trip retreats into his mild-mannered rut, leaving Silas to grapple with betrayal and emotions he can’t escape.

What will it take for this dynamic duo to discover that heroes never play it safe?

My copy was an ARC I received from the publisher for an honest review.

Bad Idea is brilliant, witty and very, very good. The main characters are likeable and real. The plot is very interesting. The writing is excellent – how I loved to read a real, smart dialogues, with inside jokes! It’s all we, the readers, want, and we got it, nicely wrapped in fast paced, rollercoaster-style story. The book is the work of art, and I mean it.

It reminded me of Kevin Smith’s Chasing Amy somehow. And I loved Chasing Amy.

And now I love Bad Idea.
