I had nice relaxing evening of catching up on podcasts and getting my ass kicked by computer generated alien adversaries.
A bunch of things I’m keeping an eye on but there’s not really much I can add to what other people are already saying. For example the implications of the Google Manifesto and massive shitstorm that caused. Big happening, nothing I can add.
The other topic of the day is of course Marvel Milkshake Masturbation which is continuing to simmer and could still fester into the long prophetized #ComicsGate…
The consensus I seem to be getting right now is that no-one thinks this will be the Big One but if it is most comic readers are like, “BRING IT THE FUCK ON!!! I GOT MY ROCKET LAUNCHER RIGHT HERE!!!”
Might still happen, there are certainly enough righteous anger in the air, the problem of course is that ashes don’t catch fire too well. Also comic book fans are completionists by nature which greatly blunts the threat of a boycott. Does that make everything completely hopeless? No it simply means that everyone needs to switch their focus to the long game.
Once a company becomes fully SJW converged saving the company and deconverging it becomes nigh on impossible (or at least it hasn’t been done yet.) Marvel is fully converged, I know it hurts to admit that and if you a shoulder to cry I understand. Marvel comics barring divine intervention is doomed. This is why you must resist the poz, for the poz consumes all.
So if Marvel cannot be saved what’s left? The threat here is not merely to the main company but to the entire existence of the Western comic book as a medium. I wish I was exaggerating but those are the stakes that are being played for here. All of western culture is under attack and we all must fight back on the terrain that each of us knows best.
Saving comics is going to require building up new companies that are not SJW infected. Big companies don’t just magically appear they start as small companies that succeed. So hunt for and find those small indie comic publishers, maybe that have something you’d be interested in? There is also one very big bonus to doing this that no one seems to be mentioning. If there is a healthy small to mid-market comics industry; writers and artists currently working for the big companies will have options should they get fired for wrongthink. This gives them at least some leverage to work against SJWs while still inside the company.
A key point from SJWs Always Lie is that most people appear to be SJWs are merely parroting talking points out of fear. By stripping away that fear and providing at least a reasonable chance of an escape route you will get people (sometimes that last person you’d expect) speaking up against the madness.
Anyway unless there’s some major unforeseen event this will be my last post on Comics as this is not my normal beat.
His face says it all.
But at least we’ll always have the movies… right?
Comic Fans Are not the problem. Diversity and Comics has been just killing it lately. So much good videos in the last few days.
How do we know TV execs are out of touch with the American people?
Comic fans are dead.
TEE HEE they both used the same thumb nail.

Huh? What that fam? Still not happy. You want an hour long rant about Marvel Milkshakes? Don’t worry JimFear138 has got you covered.
By this post I hold my oath fulfilled.
Will there be a wave of Comic Readers Are Dead Articles posted Monday? Probably not but prepare your sides just in case.
