Publisher's Summary

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?

Could've been good

What did you like best about Bad Idea? What did you like least?

I liked the characters but by the chapter 5 I was put off by the history of the comics that seem to unravel and I just lost interest. Definitely a gem for gay comics aficionados.

Would you recommend Bad Idea to your friends? Why or why not?

No. Because I didn't enjoy it.

What does Charlie David bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Charlie David is excellent as always.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

Probably not as I didn't finish the book.
