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.
