Also, did you know the voice of Vecna was actually the actor Jamie’s voice and he spent 7 hours to get into the suit each day. So impressive and it shows in the final performance!#sdcc #sdcc2022 #artistalley pic.twitter.com/NEdKwjlL3z

- In the realm of “bad ideas” this one might rank up there at a “terrible idea”…..at least, if you’re creator Matt Kindt. Comic book publisher Bad Idea is releasing a brand new comic, Hero Trade: Sacred Heart, but there is a catch. You have to get it directly from Kindt, using a not-so-secret phrase. Poor Kindt is in for a world of hurt. Find the phrase to score the comic here.
Not only will BAD IDEA be hosting an exclusive SDCC Tiki Party, but we'll be dropping a brand-new HERO TRADE story by Matt Kindt and David Lapham — HERO TRADE: SACRED HEART.— BAD IDEA (@badideahello) July 6, 2022
But *surprise* you’re gonna have to work hard to get it. Details below.#SDCC: https://t.co/4EgaJixTkc pic.twitter.com/r0ociqYYIE
