Look I love calling Ethan fat and gay as much as the next person but if people want to pay 25 bucks for luxury-grade shiny frog comics and this pays off EVS' mortgage, no amount of calling him fat and gay is going to make him stop.He can if his audience doesn't care which it seems they clearly don't. Fine. If the few thousand of them want to get continually fleeced to pay for late overpriced comics, then they get what they deserve.
I seem to recall a plea to be mindful of people who are on edge due to current circumstances.Woof, lots of gay crying occurred here on Kiwifarms overnight.
Good game, guys.
Looks like I no longer have to imagine:Meanwhile, the artist had trouble with basic anatomy and perspective, and really needed pictures of Martina in her underwear reclining and modelling for shots for him to trace over. Which she actually complied with.

Like, imagine if she went to someone like Kyle Ritter for this? That motherfucker colored Wart the Wizard for a TikTok of Mandy Summers' flat ass, according to Warcampaign. If he had this arrangement he would have turned out an Eisner nominee within 4 weeks.
I answered you, though. You said that CYBERFROG wouldn't experience growth, and I said, "We'll see."Amusing, not a response to my condition on how so can admit to growth; just general posturing in the wojak totally not mad vein to hide anger, narc rage on Ethan's part, and fear. I guess gaining 500 more unique backers is not as easy for a growing movement as thought.
Guess the Pigroach form of artificial growth by the same lot of paypigs is it for them. How sad and demonstrable signs of a stagnant movement.
I'll wait for the numbers to come in but I expect a 20-30% drop in Cyberfrog backer numbers. But hey, what issue 2 doesn't have a drop like that?For those wondering, this desperate touting of success is just on the finance, because being forced to admit that people are just pay pigging and paying for either more deluxe versions out of spite or autistic speculation hurts the success story.
Sure, I fully expect at least another 1-3k more backers to show up, but that's still less than the first campaign. Less people want Rekt Planet than Blood Honey.
FFS...it took this bitch this long to get Kyle Ritter on board .
He literally cannot help himself. It's amazing. Any criticism of him, and in a containment thread on a niche website, simply cannot go unansweredNo, that's what you guys did when Doug Tennapel said he wasn't down with the gays because of his Christian beliefs. And, coincidentally, what you continue to do when he keeps succeeding, despite your best efforts.

These ideas aren't compatible.You can take the artist out of the industry but you can't take the industry out of the artist it seems.
As a result I don't want to hear shit about how much money a campaign has made as a justification for calling it a success. Claiming success that masks falling readership with higher prices and a bewildering array of variant covers is no different to the shell game Marvel and DC are playing.
This actually belongs in the main thread. Its not drama at all. Different circumstances, access to affordable back issues is a good idea. Problem is Brand isn't even out and it cost a ridiculous amount of money, naturally people will feel screwed over by him releasing it for free.YaBoi seems to have gone off the deep end with Expendables. His philosophy of lean, mean and easy to understand campaigns has been replaced with Mike S Miller levels of utterly haphazard campaigning.
Then you have this..
$12,114 USD 224 backers 41 hours left (previous campaign made 78k)
Antonio is just fucking exceptional for launching a second book while irate backers were waiting for him to deliver on his first campaign. At one point he also intend on releasing the first issue as a free .pdf to anybody that wanted it as a promotional gimmick for the second book. Frog nearly had a stroke when he heard that and very quickly stamped on that notion.
Speaking of .pdf's.
I got my Red Rooster preview from Mitch and I have to say, I really liked what I saw, almost as much as I'm disappointed by how late that book is and the fact that Red Rooster is a textbook case of how not to crowd-fund, which is a shame, because Red Rooster is probably the best book comicsgate as produced so far (IMO) and I personally don't give a shit how late it is. I'm waiting for a comic book I backed on indiegogo, not a heart transplant. His model however suggests I won't be getting any follow up because there's no Walmart where I live. Perhaps he'll release the Allegiance books as graphic novels as some point.
No I’m still waiting on Iron Sights 2. I don’t think I’m gonna back Rich again. He knows better than this shit.Not Richard because both Jawbreaker comics were late correct (and yes, we all know why the first one was). I forgot on top of my head if either Iron Sight comics were on time.
Yeah, it's more something I'd be cool with as a trade book, where you make a small batch of comics and bind them together based on an arc or somthing. I like square bindings damn it.Hopefully Zack works something out with Alterna because this paying 15 bucks for a 22 page black and white floppy is something I'm not feelin'.
