Diseased #ComicsgateThe Culture Wars Hit The Funny Books!

Discussion in 'Community Watch' started by neural, Jan 6, 2018.

  1. Always chuckle when I remember Kwanza once arguing that people don't like his comic because "I'm black and people don't like me" is "intellectually challenging" as a premise and comic readers just can't handle the high level of thought that goes into a story about black people facing segregation level discrimination.

    I would think that's low hanging fruit but maybe I'm not an intellectual. Maybe it's like how mega-corporations and celebrities are "#Woke"

  2. It’s a method they use to exclude people they can’t relate to. It’s about sticking with your tribe and alienating/identifying those that may challenge your views and keeping them away by blocking or calling them nazi bigots.

  3. The thing that I love about the whole Comicsgate thing is that it's giving ham and eggers like me a say. Throwing money at Jawbreakers and Cyberfrog is a gigantic fuck you to these hell hags and their pet bois. Money talks bullshit walks.

    The average person supporting these projects appear to be somewhat well adjusted, probably a lot of them have decent jobs and plenty of disposable income. While a few SJW'S have conned their way into cushy jobs, the people they're preaching to are complete wrecks. Ramen connoisseurs who are 4 months behind on the rent.

  4. Anyone who self-describes as queer is almost always a boring white girl that is in a heterosexual relationship but calls herself non-binary and one time in college kissed a girl on a dare while drunk.

  8. So the rumors were true then. When you pull in $200k on a cyber frog comic you’re outlook isn’t too bad.

    Would love to see him become a publisher and take on shitty indie crap like Iron Circus. Put out better comics that don’t suck.

  9. He talked about it a while back (I forgot to drop it here). He left from the toxiticy coming from both Pros and SJWs coming after him. He will come back once he’s had his fun pursuing his CyberFrogs and YT Channel ventures.

  11. Yea, this guy sounds like a total hate-filled, Nazi radical.

    I also had a bit of an epiphany and want to see what you think. What if DC is giving Vertigo, a nothing imprint these days, over to these SJW hacks as a strategic containment move? Maybe it's a way for them to protect their historic brands from the clutches of these ghouls. They can always say "hey, we're progressive, see!" while relegating these fucktards to the basement to yell and scream all they want while the adults are upstairs getting work done. I know they hired Bendis, who is almost as bad, but he appears to be reigned in on Man of Steel so far.

  12. Or that the current climate is not going to be kind to him and anyone the SJW brigade decide to ruin on a whim. It helps that now he's able to go work on a personal project he's put aside because he's gained enough of a following to be able to crowdfund it and be happy working on it (as evident with his anecdote about Jimmy Palmiotti not inking or pencilling his own stuff anymore because it 'doesn't pay the bills')

    The parasites, on the other hand, don't care about working cheap (thank you, Patreon and hipster welfare) so long as they get to take over and use popular characters to spread their rhetoric.

  13. I don’t think so, he’s on friendly terms with most of the higher ups at DC. Marvel bridge is definitely nuked tho.

  14. Most notably DC's longtime golden boy, Geoff Johns (though Scott Snyder may take that title), who is a frequent collaborator of his. To be honest, I time it was time for Ethan to go focus on his creator-owned projects because he gave fourteen years of his life to the company. He deserves the success he is getting with his crowdfunding efforts.

    Also, there is something about the culture of DC that makes it more approachable than Marvel. Say what you want about Dan Didio, but he is a guy who wants you to read his books with the passion and energy to back it up. Similarly, Jim Lee is pleasant to the fans with a passion for the medium. Meanwhile, I really don't get that vibe from Marvel and miserable assholes like Tom Brevoort who seem like they're trying to turn the house Stan built into an IP for Disney's marketing machine. They are riding the coattails of the MCU and it is really the serpent eating its own tail since most of the MCU adapts much of its material from the comics prior to 2008.

    In any case, I have little doubt that Dan, Jim, and Geoff could convince Ethan to freelance for them at some point in the future.

    Anyone want to bet that neither title makes it to issue twelve?

  16. If you were basing it on a rational review of unit sales I doubt either would make it to Issue 6.

    But this is Marvel 2018 we're talking about, where sales are at best a secondary concern. And trolling long-term fans and virtue signalling to a population that doesn't buy comics is all that matters. Hard to say, but while I wouldn't bet one of them does make it, it wouldn't shock me either. Probably Ice Fag.

  17. this is Marvel's deliberate push to lay the groundwork for MCU 2.0 featuring cheap nobodies instead of expensive stars in every position from the actors to the writing room, churning out formulaic capeshit garbage but all of it dripping in diversity and progressiveness to hopefully catch Black Panther's lightning in a jar over and over again

  18. You mean the same company who has pretty much no control over its movie division due to Disney effectively ripping it away from them? Because it just looks like a failing cult who'd rather burn with "purity" due to being run by the fucking idiots they pay peanuts for and can and should gut with a whim than a business.

  19. Functionally the same, if you look at how Disney has treated the Star Wars license by running it into the ground in an effort to make more, cheaper, quicker titles and "expand" the universe with diversity and virtue signalling characters you haven't heard of and didn't ask for, so they can spin off even more franchises....

    DC appears to still be run by people who, in their hearts, love comics.

    Marvel is run by people who love being comic creators because that makes them gatekeepers of the media and therefore able (in their own minds anyway) to purify it of toxic wrongness and heresy and makes them the most popular and adored signaler among all their peers.
