Pondering Catchier Catch Phrases

I’ve been thinking about switching my sign off from Deus Vult to Gott  Mit Uns.


There’s a couple of reasons to do this.

-It’s German and therefore more likely to piss off random people on the internet. (Especially Germans.)

-More of a common soldier’s proclamation than Deus Vult.

-The phrase is associated with Richard Fox’s awesome The Ember War series.

-Sabaton (a reason all by itself.)


Deus Vult something you scream before taking action. Usually violent or decisive action (Broadswords and hand grenades optional.)

Gott Mit Uns is a group of guys gritting their teeth, looking at each other nervously, before going ‘hey we got this.’

Anyway it’s a useful phrase to add to your online banter and memetic warfare.

Comics, Culture War and the Arkhaven Experiments

I was torn on whether or not to write this piece. I’ve increasingly found myself doing a great deal of Culture War commentary. Right now the culture war is raging hottest among the comic stands and racks upon racks of zombie eyed funko pops.

While I find the culture war aspect deeply interesting and since I do make it a point to have at least basic understanding of what is going on in the rest of geekdom, I am not a comics guy.

Seriously people I own two comics (and one of those I impulse bought last week, just to see how much of a story can you tell in a hundred panels.) Most of what I knew about comics before 2015 was learnt against my will.

This gives me a bit of a detached view of ComicsGate and related topics. On one hand because comics is such small concentrated aspect of the War for the Heart of Geekdom it’s very easy for me to pick out elements of the wider culture war without getting personally and emotionally involved. On the other hand many of my friends (and readers) do enjoy comics and I don’t like to see my friends in pain. And there is plenty of pain in the modern comics world. We are beginning to see the first signs of the SJWs being driven out of territory that once thought secure, truly a beautiful sight. The SJWs of course are lashing out frantically but that’s more funny than threatening.

The recent attacks on Ethan van Sciver and Jon Malin are in part an act of desperation as the SJWs lodged in the comics industry are beginning to sense just how vulnerable they are.


The entire comic industry is in very bad shape and it becoming increasingly obvious to everyone just who is to blame. The books simply aren’t selling at a time when America hasn’t been so enamoured with superheroes since GI’s were reading Captain America in the trenches. How could this be? Only the dark magic of SJW convergence can explain this state of affairs. Luckily brave heroes are rising to the occasion to do something about it.


Diversity and Comics reviewing the latest death spasms in the Comic twittersphere. [12mins]

He gets to the to point around the six minute mark. Also there’s a lot of cringe here.



I didn’t feel the need to talk about the Will Calligan incident as others in my internet friendosphere already had the bases covered but truly that was a perfect storm event and the anti-SJW forces spotted a target of opportunity and then PROCEEDED TO NUKE IT FROM ORBIT


It is very difficult to overstate just how much of a win the Will Calligan kickstarter was for Arkhaven. Possibly even a bigger win the initial Alt*Hero one. Again the suspicions of Divine timing begins to arise. The SJWs couldn’t be doing more to boost Arkhaven’s chances of success if they were directly on the Supreme Dark Lord’s payroll.

Okay a quick glossary for people who aren’t daily readers of Vox Day’s blog like I am.

Alt*Hero: That kickstarter comic thing that pissed in everyone’s cornflakes and got this whole thing going. Intended to be the main showcase series for Arkhaven comics. Note that by it’s very nature Alt*Hero will be by necessity highly political.

Arkhaven Comics: This is the imprint that Castilia House is going to use for comics that they are going to make themselves in house.

Avalon: A Chuck Dixon lead series that is going to set in the same universe as Alt*Hero. Avalon will be focused on street level crime fighting on noticeably less political than the flagship series.

Dark Legion: A secondary imprint for comics Castilia House is ‘indirectly’ publishing. Basically an indie comic that is using CH is a publishing outlet while retaining creative control.


Vox Day giving an update (Jan 28th) on various Arkhaven projects [16 mins]

More importantly he shows off an example of the 24 page ‘single issue’ comic with a trade paperback cover that had me so confused.

Vox also discusses briefly how all Arkhaven/Dark Legion comics will be available in Kindle unlimited and that this is a key part of their distribution plan.

The other part of the plan is far more intriguing (if at the moment very secretive) those $2.99 single issue comics are going to be available to local comic stores through a currently unnamed distribution company (Distributor X?) in effect breaking the current monopoly that be been in force since 1997.


Alt*Hero will not ‘save the comics industry’ but it is the second and third order side effects that are happening around the Alt*Hero project that are going to breathe new life into a nearly dead industry.

First of all if Arkhaven can delivery on even half of what has been promised how are the other independent comic creators going to react? Are they going to curl up in a ball and crawl into the nearest safe space, or are they going to get “high energy” and increase their output and creativity. It doesn’t even matter whether they are mad at Vox Day for invading their turf. Energy is energy and the Arkhaven disruption will breathe new life into the fringe creators. Culture war after all requires culture and the more non-SJW comics being made the better.

The second aspect depends on the combination of Distributor X and the Dark Legion imprint opening up the comic industry and making it easier for physical books to get to market. Once local comic store owners get used to ordering from a second distributor, things should begin to snowball. Diamond will respond to the new competition (by all accounts they are a very smart company,) and they will probably be forced to start treating the store owners better.

And if more and more small indy publishers start switching to Distributor X or pressing Diamond for better deals… well again things will snowball quickly.

Of course this all depends on there still being local comic stores around in 2019.

But don’t mind me… you all know what a pessimist I am.

AltHero Vs ComicsGate : A quick overview of the difference in philosophy between the two approaches.

Comics, Culture War and the Arkhaven Experiments

Heads Up People

Just wanted to make quick post tonight but the stormwatchers are officially in OH SHIT mode.

Ask yourself what other implications an act like this might have going forward?


Spicer responded, “I think the president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant” and offered no other explanation. This unexpected response spawned additional media attention and criticism for its cryptic meaning, with commentators unsure if Spicer was joking or not.


Oh and about that Alabama election; even on the surface it seems like a Pyrrhic victory for the Democrats since they expended enormous resources and efforts in order to win a single senate seat. In a move that… is going to have very strange repercussions for the future the Alt-Left starting calling Roy Moore a pedophile since apparently calling people ‘racist’ no longer works in [CURRENT-EST YEAR EVER]

The Democratic Machine and the Cuckservatives also had to resort to obvious and detectable election fraud in order to beat a surprisingly strong popular vote.

Which brings us to the latest Q theory.



Food for thought if nothing else. Q is just reliable enough that we can’t ignore him. (Or them as Roy Potter is probably right about Q being a team of people.)


and while I’m thinking about it. Let’s remember those voting machines…

[UPDATE: This image and the email in question is probably fake but I’ll have to look into it tomorrow.]


Not suspicious at all.

I’ve always had a soft spot for Alabama… could never really explain why.

Heads Up People

This Is What Draining The Swamp Looks Like.

Darth Bannon at work? Did the 4d chess never stop?

I haven’t been commenting much on US politics* lately as I’m well aware that I miss important details especially at the state and local level. As Captain Obvious likes to point out my boots are on an entirely set of ground**.

So I just have to ask my friends “Does this look right to you?”

Because I haven’t seen anything to contradict it and puts a lot of recent things in perspective.

We already know the Democrats are going to get ‘anally rearranged’ in the 2018 mid term elections. So is Trump instead focusing his efforts on running against the Republican establishment? That would be a logical play, would it not?


Todd Reinhardt breaks things down and discusses the long game. [16 mins]

Well worth your time.

We’re going to primary the swamp creatures but I can’t be seen doing it. You have to do it.”

Very interesting point about the Strange/Moore election (about 1:40) that Trump was publicly supporting Strange while Steve Bannon and others were supporting Judge Moore.


Adjust image slightly depending on country.


Anyway the take away here is that The Swamp is getting drained. The process has started but people need to keep in mind is that The Swamp is bigger than anyone thought and moving THAT MUCH slimey, muddy polluted water is by necessity going to take a very long time and an awful lot of work.

Which brings me to another thought I’ve been playing around with.

The Left continues to obsess over the God-Emperor’s tweets. With hundreds of “resistance fighters” scrambling desperately in a race to be the top reply and get those much desired happy feel feel points. This happens with every single tweet (which is why I think Trump makes so many of them.) The previous outrage of only yesterday is simply discarded in the mad dash to be all so current. Very short term thinking.

Meanwhile the most intelligent sections of the modern Right are thinking about events that will occur in 2020 or even 2024. What comes after Trump? That is things get very interesting. Trump has brought the Republic at least another twenty years of life. Will those extra and completely unexpected decades be enough to save it? Still too early to tell.

The Left is thinking in minutes and hours.

The Right is thinking in weeks and years.

That is a reverse of the previous paradigm. The tide has indeed shifted.


*Quick note that it is actually easier for a Canadian to follow US politics at the national level than it is to follow politics in our own country. Why? BECAUSE THE CANADIAN MEDIA IS COMPLETE SHIT [insert rant here]. Below the national level however that is not the case.

**This does sadly (if hilariously) lead to a lot of arrogant Canadian pundits*** who are very good at reading and predicting Federal level American politics but who routinely make complete asses of themselves when they try to understand smaller local issues****. I’m trying to not be that guy.

***Trust not the Conserva-thot.

**** We also see a lot this in the Alt-Right when Americans try to discuss events in Europe… or vice versa.

This Is What Draining The Swamp Looks Like.

Alt-Hero and The Culture War

Alt*Hero: The Boulder is Beginning to Squish Things.

The Alt*Hero Freestartr has reached its second stretch goal and currently stands at $56k.



Meanwhile the Great Ocean of Salty Tears and the unceasing REEEEEEs continue. Wolfie does indeed love him some schadenfreude. Although the constant shrieks as every wandering SJW first discovers Alt*Hero does make it hard to sleep.

Alt*Hero is the kind of book we would have rejected at Previews. Man Kickstarter is the best & worst thing to happen to comics publishing.” — @Williambwest

Questionable content never had painful body horror anatomy like this alt hero crap does” —@comixthomas

If you’re donating to this Alt hero train wreck headed by Theodore Beale. I’m at a loss for words.” — @Jenniferjmedina

Just found out the “Alt Hero” altright wank job comic is being written by Vox “A very sad puppy” Day. And I’m fuckin losing it.” — @DaiZDark

Alt Hero is a racist wonder woman comic with a kickstarter. Onme of the stretch goals is they hire an artist who can draw hands.” — @EggerTWS

Because remember folks: ‘Alt Hero’ can only be hero if the evil commies won. But at least the art sucks so, yanno perks!” —@RabbitThoughts



Why look even the cucks are joining in.

Micah Curtis not a fan of Vox Day. Not sold on Alt*Hero [10min]

To be fair here, Micah is more sceptical and confused than anything. I suppose he has every right to be. To the absolute shock of Vox Populi’s regular readers it actually does seem possible to completely miss the entire point of Alt*Hero.

Alt*Hero is not just about the sweet salty tears of the butthurt Marvel soyboys

Alt*Hero is not just about the glorious “Fuck You” dance for the ages.

Alt*Hero is not just about raising T-Levels throughout an notoriously Low-T hobby.

Alt*Hero is not just about Gen X completely bypassing the Millennials and handing down a uniquely American artform to Generation Z.

Alt*Hero is not just about providing raw material for the legendary dwarven meme-smiths to forge into adamantium weapons of concentrated dankness.

But these are all very good things.

Alt*Hero is first and foremost a proof of concept.

We are going to make whatever we want. We are going to show everyone that the self-appointed gatekeepers are completely powerless to stop us. Then we are going to dance in the streets to the sound of their heads exploding. Then other people are going to follow behind us. Alt*Hero is also about the enormous wave of innovation and creative productivity that will follow in its wake.

This the culture war. We’re taking back our hobbies, we’re revitalizing Western Civilization. We’re bringing Truth and Beauty back to a world that desperately needs it.

The SJWs have fucked up the entire comic industry.

We’re just gonna have to un-fuck it, one thrust at a time.

While they watch us…

Good times ahead everyone.

Alt-Hero and The Culture War

Alt Hero Funded

and it happened so fast I’m REEEEEing myself.


That timestamp does seem suspiciously dank.


Still absorbing the news and reaction and my first thoughts are that I did not see the alternate World War II history part coming. Very interesting indeed. I wonder if there was a failed Japanese invasion of the West Coast? and if so did they use giant robots?


Update: Orbital REEEEEEs confirmed.


And the catgirls at the secret moonbase are acting very strange.

I Have No Mouth and I Must Virtue Signal

I do hope everybody is following the twitter spasm surrounding Alt-Hero.

So much SNARK, so much projection, so many transgender bugchasing Marxist furries.

A fascinating character study if nothing else.

Truly REEEEEEE powered marketing is the wave of the future.

Just look at Vox Day’s enemies spread the word for him!



“You overestimate the number of people buying comics.”

And you underestimate the number of people who bought comics for decades and have only recently stopped because they couldn’t put up with the bullshit anymore.

Come to think of it awful lot of those old angry white comic fans (who have been shit upon for years now) would be just about the right age to have teenage sons.

That’s who Alt-Hero is for. Not plebs like me who are going to be quite content with a just a digital copy. The hardcore jaded ex-comic reader who’s old enough to remember when comics were actually good and want to relive some of that glory while sticking it to the rotting corpse of the current mainstream comic industry.

and then there is going to be the Weaponized Autists who are going to be EXTREMELY HAPPY to physically hold three hundred dollars of “FUCK YOU MARVEL!!!” in their hands. There will be at least a couple guys like that… and God bless them for it.

Alt-Hero is going to happen in one form or another. The question is whether or not the current plans are workable. Chewing on the numbers myself I don’t see any way the Alt-Hero project falls flat on its ass unless mission creep sets in. Again Castalia House already has enough of distribution system to deliver the promised product without working with the normal comic industry channels.

“But Castalia House doesn’t know anything about publishing comic books!”

Well guess what? Neither does 2017 Marvel Comics. So let’s see what happens. The timing of this whole project really not have been better due to the baffling events of Marvel Milkshake Madness and ComicsGate trickling along in bursts and spurts.

So let the games begin.
