Yes I’m doing these things again. Sanity is overrated anyway.
Okay let’s start with the obvious news. The first issue of Alt*Hero has been released on Amazon Kindle and physical dead tree copies are promised for two weeks from now. Distribution will be through Ingram and any store with an Ingram account should be able to order it.
Calarts ruins everything.
I still think the real fun starts when Chuck Dixon’s Avalon hits the stands (which is a good reason for your local comic store to set up an Ingram account) as that series is going to have stronger normie appeal than the AltHero series itself but the important thing is that the readers are happy and the SJWs are continuing to REEEEE and call everyone Nazis.
I’ll try to get Issue #1 read by this weekend.

Also the 1984 movie is well worth hunting down if you haven’t seen it,
Jeffro breaks down just what the Cultural Marxists have done to modern SFF
Benjamin Cheah ponders the meaning of heroism and goes over some of the more flawed concepts.
The section on flawed heroes is definitely worth highlighting. While a protagonist without vices or weaknesses can often be boring in the end we value heroes for their virtues and heroism.
