…or it might just be another day on the internet.
Too early to tell.
Captain Cummings sums up the Makemymilkshake kerfuffle [11 mins]
Anyone else starting to notice a pattern here.
Diversity and Comics gives his take. [19 mins]
“Marvel is at war with the fans. Straight up and down. They hate them.”
Interesting to see these two fairly non-political comic reviewers* quoting Vox Day’s Three Laws of the SJW. Also there was a fun anecdote about DnC’s time in the marines. Rant rating 9/10.
And if you have a lot of time on your hands here’s The_Bechtloff’s last podcast. I believe the first half hour or so is comic related and covers the incident in question. [1H 10M]
Sadly Mr. Bechtloff did not get mentioned in the Mary Sue. His point however about SJW Marvel writers not being real geeks is spot on. Old geeks tend to get very angry when SJW hipster trash fake geeks bully and shame teenage geeks (who are not yet secure and confident in their geekdom.)
Anyway again while I’m not a comic guy myself I do intend to keep an eye on things. If ComicGate does break out I will do my best to follow events from the frontline as a “completely unbiased embedded reporter.”
*Yes about a quarter of their audience are Alt-Right but the two gentlemen in question come across as Displaced or Anti-Left Center Similar to Sargon of Akkad. This is fine; a single-issue activist needs no politics. Also comic reviewers should be talking about comics.
Comic writers of the past versus comic writers today.
Stay vigilant Brave Reader! For the War for the Heart of Geekdom continues.
At this point people might find themselves supporting the Alt-Hero project purely out of spite. Going to be very interesting to see what happens.
