Posting This Here For People Who Missed It

Here’s an archived copy of Mr. Metokur’s Quinnspiracy Theory series from the early stages of GamerGate. It’s like two hours long so you might want to get a bowl of popcorn and a sixpack before you sit down and watch it.

Don’t focus too hard on Zoe Quinn but recognize the sort of opportunistic predator she is. This was the first chance a lot of people got to really see the full SJW playbook in action and Quinn plays it better than most.

Things are Starting to Get Froggy

Going to make this a quick post just to get something up on this but it seems that Ethan Van Sciver is beginning to really draw out the crazies. The SJW Comic Mafia is starting to get truly desperate to shut down the rise of Artisanal comics.* So desperate in fact a number of them set up a phony mirror copy of Ethan’s Indie Go Go campaign on Kickstarter in order to mess with the already successful campaign… in a manner that could very well be considered as criminal fraud.

I guess Mark Waid isn’t the only one willing to commit crimes in order to rearguard the ongoing collapse of the mainstream comics industry.

Yes I know these feels.

*While I do think that there are long-term flaws with this crowdfunded bunch production model, is it a 2018 solution to a 2018 problem. Short term? Keep Winning! Drive your enemies before you and hear the lamentations of the cucks!

UPDATE:

Here’s Ethan’s version of events [16mins]

There appears to be much more to this story.

Things are Starting to Get Froggy

ComicsGate: Make the Rubble Bounce

There’s an awful lot of people in Comicsgate who almost get the Culture War (1). So I do have to admit that there’s a certain ironic humor in seeing a number of people who were quite critical of Vox Day’s Alt-Hero project having to nut up and do the exact same thing six months later. (2)

The main (if usually unstated) goal of ComicsGate has always been to force a reform on the existing comics industry, truly a worthy goal. People want the old Marvel and DC comics back. However it increasingly looks like this noble goal is impossible. The old rotten institutions are simply too corrupt and converged.

The solution then is to build anew.

Mark Waid and his jibbering lackeys may have unwittingly forced Diversity and Comics (3) to do just that. By lashing out, bullying and harassing indie publisher Antarctic Press into not publishing Jawbreakers: Lost Souls the Jawbreakers team has been forced to go with what was very clearly a pre-established plan B. They will take the money that they have raised and start their own publisher. Splatto Comics. (4)

 

QuQu’s excellent article on all this.

https://ququ-media.com/2018/05/12/antarctic-press-cancels-jawbreakers-gn-following-mark-waid-threats/

 

Personally I’m trying not to be giddy about this brand new opportunity to burn shit down even harder and faster. One of the stated goals of Alt-Hero was to inspire imitators as the more non-SJW comics being made the faster the industry can be freed from their cancer.

If D&C can pull this off the Alt-Comics movement becomes a true joint offensive.

But it’s noteworthy that Splatto Comics and Arkhaven Comics are going to be taking different approaches, particularly when it comes to digital comics.

This is fine. An ally is by definition is somebody who is not you... which reminds me of something. During WWII the Allies took two completely different doctrinal approaches to strategic bombing (5); with British preferring night bombing to reduce aircraft losses and the Americans preferring daytime operations to increase bombing accuracy. While there was a lot of angry debate at first with each party trying get the other to change their doctrine it eventually dawned on high command that by splitting their bombing effort like this the Allies would be bombing the Axis “around the clock.”

I’d like to think that’s a metaphor for what going to be happening to mainstream comics industry in 2019. Bombs raining drop upon their heads constantly… and the SJWs know that it is coming… and that they are powerless to stop it. Fun times ahead.

Short-ish videos:

Diversity and Comics gives his account about what happened with Antarctic Press and his plans for moving forward. [24 mins]

Again (8:00) the mention of Diamond as the chokepoint. We still don’t have complete details on how Arkhaven is doing distribution but it’s become clear that Vox was right to focus on setting up an alternative method. Again, once this second distributor is set up and running it would not be too hard for other indy publishers to join in.

 

Raging Golden Eagle gives us the quick version [12 mins]

What these SJW comic pros are doing with Jawbreakers and Antarctic Press. This is a last ditch desperate attempt to keep their jobs. They cannot allow Jawbreakers to succeed.”

At least I’m not the only one who’s giddy about all of this.

 

Capn Cummings gives his take and focuses on Mark Waid’s spearheading of this unethical and possibly illegal harassment campaign. [16 mins]

Mark Waid lying.

Mark Waid projecting.

Strictly formula, SJWs are down right mechanical once you understand what you’re dealing.

 

Longer videos: For people looking for them.

Live Stream discussion with Douglas Ernst and Timothy Lim. [1 Hr 17 Mins]

A very good discussion. Timothy Lim going over his history and relationship to Antarctic press definitely adds a little spice to the meatball.

 

A Jon Del Arroz Periscope covering the topic. [50mins]

https://www.pscp.tv/w/1gqGvpaleXWxB

This is a fairly slow paced livestream but Jon covers a lot of key points here. One thing he brings up how Antarctic caving like this sets a very bad precedent; especially for smaller projects that don’t have a large rabid fanbase to stand up for them in the event that their publisher comes under attack. A large project like Jawbreakers can weather such a storm and even grow as a result but anything less than a superstar project is going to be vulnerable to the ‘normal SJW attack pattern.’

 

End Notes:

1: To be fair a lot them do get it but I get very frustrated with the ones who keep making excuses for what is happening right in front of them.

2: If Vox was right about this. What else is he right about?

3: We’re on the internet. Respect the handle. Use the handle. Besides that’s what everybody knows him by.

4: Also something about a cat. Sadly the only Spanish I know is what I picked up at Taco Bell.

5: Yes WarNerd is going to talk about WWII. Also sky is blue and water is wet. Don’t tone police me, bro.

6: How do you double down on THIS??? I hope he tries.

An older piece where I try to think about the longer term implications of what Vox Day is attempting to do with Arkhaven. Remember he’s approaching this problem mostly as a publisher first.

Not This Shit Again

Diversity and Comics gives a quick update on his recent highly successful indiegogo campaign. [15mins]

However he brings up the very alarming way the comic SJWs are attacking the project. It seems that the gatekeepers and the Circus of Sadness are trying to intimidate retailers to not carry the completed comic.

This I suppose is why Vox Day always preaches the importance of building infrastructure and why the Alt-Hero has slowly evolved into the much larger and comprehensive Arkhaven comics label.

circusofsadness

It remains to be seen just how effective this recent attack will be; thankfully the Comic SJWs have failed at so much that I fully expect them to fail at this too.

Quality Nerd Raging

I felt this was worth sharing.

 

Weaponized Nerd Rage lived up to his name and delivered a quality rant taking a certain quivering shitweasel to task. [9 mins]

 

Honestly Ethan van Sciver has won me over as fan in the recent weeks and for much the same reasons that Jon Del Arroz did. He’s simply so honest, passionate and friendly that any sane person walks away from the conversation with a smile on their face.

AltHero Vs ComicsGate

Just a quick point about the difference between ComicsGate and AltHero.

#ComicsGate is about FORCING A REFORM on the comic industry.

This might be possible. This is no doubt a worthy cause. Time will tell.

#AltHero on the other hand completely WRITES OFF the existing comics industry as a LOSS and seeks to BUILD completely NEW institutions.

Which approach is correct?

We don’t know.

The advantages of stopping the enemy short of the main line of resistance are considerable. If such a thing is possible no effort is completely wasted.

But can an SJW converged company be de-converged? No one knows. I can think of no examples.

So which approach should be the focus? That’s not my decision to make.

AltHero Vs ComicsGate

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.
