Welcome aboard the H.M.S. BAD IDEAH! It’s a collection of geeky comics celebrating bad ideas, lost causes, and the dumb decisions that start awesome adventures!

This book features a guest-illustrated list of hundreds of bad ideas, plus five years of the very best comics by Peter Chiykowski, creator of the Aurora Award-winning webcomic Rock, Paper, Cynic.

Illustrations by 40+ guest artists, including: Zach Weiner, SATURDAY MORNING BREAKFAST CEREAL, Rob DenBleyker, CYANIDE AND HAPPINESS, Abby Howard, JUNIOR SCIENTIST POWER HOUR, Ryan North, DINOSAUR COMICS, TO BE OR NOT TO BE, Christopher Hastings, THE ADVENTURES OF DR. MCNINJA, Lar DeSouza, LEAST I COULD DO, Katie Tiedrich, AWKWARD ZOMBIE, and Reza Farazmand, POORLY DRAWN LINES.


My name’s Peter Chiykowski and I write ROCK, PAPER, CYNIC—a webcomic for people who think too much and too little. It’s all about celebrating things that make the world weird and exciting (like turtles, philosophy, and dinosaurs) and poking fun at things that bring people down (like bigotry, Sean Bean dying in movies, and Internet Explorer). I believe practicing constructive cynicism helps us question things that make the world crappy and better appreciate things that make it pretty sweet. Also, sometimes I just like to make silly jokes about turtles.
