Not much to say this month so let’s just get straight down to business.

A quick Geekdom is under attack manifesto from what appears to be a fairly new site.

Remember fam, it’s all one big nerdwar. Focus on the battleground that you know best but remember that Alt-Culture is a combined arms operation. Do your duty and together we can push back the poz.

And in that note Space Ranger Jon Mollison gives a little pep talk to all us eager young space cadets.

So grab your gyrojet carbines and get to your scout ships, boys because those space princesses aren’t going to just escape from those alien doom dungeons without somebody lending a hand, tentacle or other biomechanical grasping device.

J D Cowan Discusses what actually made the X-Men good.

https://wastelandandsky.blogspot.ca/2017/09/the-truth-about-x-men.html

If you asked anyone in the 1990s why they liked the X-Men you would have few answers beyond the obvious. They had awesome powers. They were cool. They were distinct individuals with their own talents that backed each other up and meshed well in a group. They always take on the bad guys and put aside their own personal grudges to do so. The stories are explosive and fun.

Whatever politics the X-Men were created with were secondary to what kids enjoyed out of them.”

Justin Knight reflects on what drove him to write his latest novel, Praxis.

I loved the original Alien movie, because it was basically truckers in space. With Praxis, I wanted to do a warehouse in space.”

 

Diversity and Comics reviews Shirtless Bear Fighter [22 mins]

And he’s not really a fan. This comic seems to have wasted a perfectly good concept, in favor of cramming in lame jokes and completely ham-handed sarcasm.

Edit: Oh Look Somebody decided to DMCA the video in question. How stunning and brave!

Yakov Merkin‘s second article on writing non-human characters. He gets into the nuts and blots a bit here.

“The first pitfall is obvious. Most readers won’t question a non-human character, but, if by the middle of the book they’re wondering what exactly is alien about this character, you have a problem.”

Looks about right

 

Paul Lucas reflects upon a Robert. E Howard poem and does an in-depth breakdown.

https://paullucaswriter.wordpress.com/2017/10/05/entropy-and-the-barbarian/

The climax of the poem is striking – the Dark Barbarian literally towers over all. He is a massive god looming over the remnants of a crushed civilisation, not just in our minds but literally.“

 

Forging a French Nail (Early WWI Trench Knife) [6 Mins]

Weapons don’t need to be fancy in order to be deadly. It’s also very sobering to contemplate that a great deal of World War I fighting was done with knives, sharpened entrenching tools or even clubs.

Exactly what it says on the tin. Amazing series. Certainly much better Sci-fi than Star Trek Discovery, especially when you consider that its budget could probably be calculated in ramen noodles.

Swords, Spacefighters and Giant Robots sounds like a pretty awesome time.

Anyway that’s all I got for now. People do seem a little interesting in further “Ice Moon Corrigan” writing so I’m trying to plan a little of that out. Corrigan was supposed to get a passing mention in Decisive Action but it’s such an interesting idea for a society that it would be a shame not to play with the ideas just a bit more. We just don’t get enough Christian fanatic super-preppers turning entire moons into heavily fortified monasteries in modern Science Fiction.

But that’s another thought for another day until then For Breyland and for glory!

Another Goal Reached

The Alt Hero project has reached its fourth stretch goal at the 70K mark. As a result a novel has been announced that will be co-written by Vox Day and Jon Del Arroz (of For Steam and Country fame.)

AHgoal4reached

https://freestartr.com/project/althero/

The overwhelming response to Alt-Hero really has caught everybody by surprise and the timing of the whole project has an almost divine element to it. With Comicsgate slowburning in the background the one and half month delay of Alt-Hero’s launch (where they had to wait for the freestartr site to add certain features) has done nothing but add fuel to the fire.

It was also side splittingly hilarious to see Comic SJWs completely lose their shit over a single picture of Rebel when anyone who reads Vox Day’s blog had known that Alt Hero was in the works for about six months. Anyway the aggressive anti-fandumb marketing does seem to be doing its job.

Why just look what the critics are saying on Twitter.

Yeah, I’d be concerned about getting someone consistent but..I doubt any artist wants on board this trainwreck.” — @lashiec

Buddy this whole comic is about this dude’s hurt feelings.” — @Noalarmplanet

Nah, I prefer to slap my girldick on you and your shitlord Beale’s faces.” — @_Alsvid_(Context of the statement not recorded)

Alt*Hero is fertile evidence for my doctoral dissertation “Redhead fetishism is Asian fetishism for Dudes Too Racist for Asian Fetishism.” — @brendonbouzard

i’m sorry for giving alt hero attention but god i feel like i’ve entered some kind of alternate hell timeline” — @SpadesArts

Who the fuck is Matteo Mystic? Google search shows nothing. Also MULTIPLE people ‘pledged’ $5000 to that alt hero fake kickstarter trash.” — @kendallgoode

i am mad that my dream of someone in 5 years buying a storage locker full of unsold alt hero books full of only your shitty art won’t happen.” — @dewormy

Oh my god I clicked on it and I’m getting legit mad that they designed Alt hero to be counter to “The deformed Muslim Kamala khan” aAAAAAAA” — @Fatdragonfiesta

Current Mood among Alt-Hero supporters.

or maybe this.

Anyway I have been VERY POLITELY asked to turn the speakers back down to ten. So I will be taking it easy the next few days.

Another Goal Reached

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.

https://freestartr.com/project/althero/

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

Looks Like It’s Time To Level The Fuck Up

Shadilay Brethren, I’d like to take the time to thank The Supreme Dark Lord, Davis Aurini, Bradford Walker and the rest of you for the absolutely ridiculous traffic spike this blog has gotten in the last two days.

anticommunist-button.jpg

To put things into perspective a normal day around here has maybe 25-30 views. If I post a good article that gets a little buzz things might spike up to 70-100 views.

In the last three days as a result of covering the launch of Alt*Hero I have gotten, 255, 790 and 819 page views respectively. That’s what? a 2000% increase!!! Needless to say it got my attention.

dontbenervous.jpg

While I have no idea how many of you will stick around in order to become proper Magic Space Aryans I do hope you’ve all been entertained.

Many a truth is said in jest and I’m come to accept that such is my lot in life.

Breyland Notes: The Magic Space Aryan Racial Purity Scale

 

This is the second time I’ve a had a post go viral enough to actually scare me and if I made a complete ass of myself the first time I’d like to think that I’m a bit more seasoned and confident now.

I may surprise some of you to learn that this is supposed to be a writer’s blog. Even though it seems that I’m doing a great deal more Culture War Commentary than actual writing.

The War For The Heart Of Geekdom: What Can You Do?

 

So what do I need to do? I need to sperg less and write more.

My current main project is going to be a ‘space navy novel’ set in the Breylandverse and done in the spirit of David Weber’s early work; hopefully very short and simple.

Current working title is Decisive Action. I don’t really want to give any details until I have more of the actual work done. However one thing I find note worthy is that I’m using a lot of what on the surface appear to be ‘diversity’ characters for the reason that their divided loyalties made for a much more interesting dynamic.

 

A Chapter done in the Spirit of Pinochet (Too funny not to share immediately after I wrote it.)

A Proven Solution

 

For my older readers I’m afraid that I’m going to have to delay Brothers In The Dust for the reason that I’m not really confident enough that I can properly write small scale infantry combat. Added to the intimidation factor is that the sort of people who would buy a novel like that are going have put considerable amounts of lead down range.

I’ll probably come back to BITD once I’ve actually gotten another less ambitious story done.

I keep having to scale down and simplify. I guess that’s where the Pulp Revolution comes in.

Anyway If I go silent for a few days it’s because I’m trying to actually focus on a project and get something done. I’ll try to keep people updated but I have a lot of demons to wrestle and I don’t always have the upper hand.

Politics and the Alt-Right: I’ll comment on something if it pisses me off enough or if I need to get my thoughts written down in order to organize them. Otherwise I need to back off a bit and take care things closer to home.

together

And yes I pretend to be a Viking on the Internet, I find it pisses off the right people and keeps the T-level up.

So Why Vikings?

 

I’ll finish this post with this old worldbuilding exercise; which some of you might enjoy in the wake of Alt*Hero.

Alt Hero Funded

and it happened so fast I’m REEEEEing myself.

Altherofunded

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.

Alt Hero: The Boulder is Rolling

Just spent most of the day sperging out about Alt-Hero. This is going to be one incredible ride.

capteuro.jpg

Only a Frenchman can be this much of a smug douchebag and still look good in tights.

The SJWs are finally starting to get wind of it but I don’t think it’s dawned on them that they can’t actually stop the boulder rolling towards them. Castalia House has just enough of an internal distribution network that they don’t have to go through normal comic industry channels. There had been some concern about a kickstarter being taken down but the new fundrising site Freestartr is firmly Alt-Tech and can be counted not to yield to outside pressure.

So yes very soon it will indeed be Hammertime.

Hammer.jpg

As for the content of the three currently planned sixty-four page comics? Speculation is or course, running wild. While Vox Day, Lead Writer and presumably Editor In Chief has promised that the REEEEEEEEs will be audible in orbit, sceptics contend that in space only the psychics can hear you scream. NASA has so far refused to comment but at least one microphone has been set up outside the International Space Station.

altherosoon

What is the great appeal of Alt-Hero? Quite simply the possibilities are damn near endless and since no one has the complete details of what the Alt-Hero Team are actually going to do, the hype is building and everyone is having a blast speculating about it?

Rainbow-Redshift_512.jpg

The latest hot takes… is Rainbow in fact a closeted straight man with a secret tradwife and family that he must keep hidden from his Global Justice Initiative employers?

Does Redshift moonlight as Captain Pantless the Uncatchable Sports Event Streaker?

Many questions, few answers. Who knows but we’ll soon find out.
