There ya go!

I think Zack's comments come at the 4 hour 45 minute mark, and you can judge them for yourself.

Zack said something about dog tags, and not liking to wear labels, and then "But you know I'm with you guys."

I privated the stream because I noticed that after my Rekieta appearance, I was gaining subs again. A 7 hour livestream would kill that growth, so I took down all recent livestreams to let my channel breathe and grow.

Because of this controversy, I reinstated last night's livestream so people could see it. I'll keep it up long enough for fans to download it.
No doubt. Meyer obviously has no problem associating with, befriending or collaborating with people "involved in Comicsgate". But if he was anyone else but YBZ, he would have failed the purity tests that have been built up with the "Comicsgate" label, because he doesn't discuss "Comicsgate" in his videos, doesn't promote CG books in his vids, market his books as Comicsgate and doesn't identify as a Comicsgate creator. Not because he rejects the label but that he rejects that there is a label in the first place. But he does show up on CG livestreams, as you say. Like I said, to him CG is purely a theory for marketing and selling comics and he absolutely holds to that definition. It's not like he's aggressively pushing this opinion on people who disagree.

What I'm getting at is the answer to whether "is X Comicsgate or not?" is actually extremely subjective to the person asking the question.
You went to a lot of trouble to prove me right Ethan and I thank you for it.


edit: I see the CG crowd is taking this news (to them) well, you asking Zack if he considers himself CG was really Mike S Miller trying to (metaphorically) shoah Ya Boi Zack. Cecil also pipes in to explain how Comicsgate is a cult, in every way. Miller BTFO

Honestly I forgot Donal existed. He earned a lot of good will from his initial ejection from the mainstream industry, but he went whole hog on the “acting like a complete sped on social media” the rest of the CG nobodies are infamous for and his 48 page book still isn’t done yet.

Cecil has also rapidly gone from one of the funniest people in CG, to one of the most unlikeable people I’ve ever seen on the internet. His schtick has gotten very old very quickly and his book doesn’t look like it’s worth 25 bucks. You know he compared Zack to Jesus Christ just to get under Mike’s skin.

Donal has had some hiccups regarding Brutas. There was that drama with Nasser, the colorist they got was a little slow because he had other jobs that took priority and as of a few days ago when he has the print file ready to go, the Corona virus shuts down the printer he's using. But depending on how fast he finds a new printer, we could be seeing books going out in maybe March

The Corona virus thing was unavoidable, but getting an asshole writer and an unavailable colorist seem fairly self-imposed. People wanted to back “that one guy who lost his job for supporting Zack”. Not him, Nasser and some no-name colorist who can’t deliver. He’s already shown he can do a decent coloring job on his own, so I don’t see what benefit it was to pay someone else for it.

It takes allot more time for him to do it. It wasn't, Nasser was established with a track record. As Jeff hicks learned, fulfillment can suuuuuck.

The one I'm curious about is Cridious, haven't seen hide nor hair on that dude. Keep in mind I don't do Twitter, so maybe he's doing stuff there. I will say this though, the best way to make your project look like a grift? Disappear off the face of the Earth.
The last major thing I heard of Cridious was him quietly complaining about being extorted by WarCampaign for associating with "enemies" and Indiecron during EVS' "THE FALL OF ROME" livestream. Since then he's been quietly escorted into the CG memory hole.


In other news, Mike Miller has debuted his latest project, 'THE MAGANIFICENT SEVEN" consisting of all the Fox News pundits he likes in an exciting new combination of superheroes and political parody, capitalizing on the hot fresh trend of Donald Trump in the year of our Lord 2020. If this doesn't strike you as a wise decision in of itself, Miller made sure to tag pundit heroes like Donald Trump, Tucker Carlson and Ben Shapiro with this image of some sort of sex dungeon involving an obese naked balding man with a giant robot cock/sump pump coming out of his navel sitting on top of a cage filled with captive children. The man bears a not unpassing resemblance to Ethan (barring the thumbs), I must say. He is currently asking in his project announcment thread how to chance the embedded image.

At first I thought Ethan's lecturing Mike that he knew what was for Mike's own good better than he did was the actions of a domineering and abusive "friend", but Miller is really going out of his way to prove EVS right these days.

I have no real issues with Mike, but is his promotion plan really just to tag a bunch of big right wingers including the fucking President of the United States and hope they give a shit about his book? I don't even think his sales number went up that high the last time he did it if at all when he somehow got Sharpiro to plug Lonestar. And now I see Edwin is plugging it in CNN threads. This seems like a massive waste of time. Go to where the comic nerds are guys, goddamn.

Mike really is just awful at managing his own affairs. EVS told him to talk about Game of Thrones since Mike has ties to the property and Mike got bored of it in a week and immediately went back to endlessly talking about the bible. The fact that he’s unironically knee-deep in MAGA culture, and has an obsession with Ben Shapiro is going to ultimately limit his audience.

I also just can’t tell what the fuck this new project of his is supposed to be.

This looks more exceptional and embarrassing as that one comic that made FOX news anchors heroes against a dystopian Dem World. Like this is actively shit, and I will not touch this or his books if he thinks this is something actually good.

Ethan has his moments of extreme exceptionalism, but at least his and his select few friends do well on their campaigns. Narwhal opened his campaign last night and is sitting at 10k already. Ethan knows how to push comics. Mike and Edwin don't.

This baby has two left on the shelf, after ordering two copies... "Political cartoons are the future" - Mike probably

This just shows how low a bar 'success' to these people is.

So, in case anyone hasn’t checked on the Expendables campaign in the past couple of days, it’s reached 100k. Quicker than most campaigns we’ve seen.

Zack added a chromium cover tier with some excellent art by Kyle Ritter. However, some people in the comments are pretty pissed. Several people who backed the tier to get “All 5” covers are now being left out on the additional cover. It’s an interesting development.

I’m not particularly fond of campaigns with a ton of covers and generally appreciated the simplicity of Zack’s earlier campaigns. That said, I can understand him wanting to church it up a little when he’s working on one of his dream properties. He just needs to be more careful to avoid logistical missteps like this going forward.

This is a big one for him. Its like getting to go from the minors to the majors with a licensed property.

Around CG

Richard's been busy. He states later in another video he got clap back for his assertion. Hate to say it, but they're right. The only comparable product is trade sales and those are hard to pin because what do you go by, monthly sales? Lifetime? Some campaigns never end.


Doug Earnst has been absent with the exception of a livestream, which is all over the place.

Yellowflash and TUG actually talked about comics some in a livestream because Richard was there.

Frog was earning loyalty by pimping Narwhal's new project. How long has he dropped the mask?

Doug has been doing a bunch of snore streams. They let EWJ on Kickstarter. Mike and that guy Cecil impersonates was on the stream. Wonder if Doug could help him get on KS, since wasn't Mike rejected by for being a bad person or something?

...Mike is sad and pathetic.

This video thumbnail image is great :

It clearly depict and sumerize what CG has become in the eye of casuals or normal people, and how Zach Feels about it, Being the old frail Lady that is too polite and uncomfortable with the bunch of assholes and exceptional individuals CG is, and standing on her side watching it from a distance, too gentle and polite to just tell them the way it is but at the same time, feeling increasingly unwell and scared. Like, you better act like a gentle person around them or you fear their stupidity could actually get out of control and harm you.

What he says about going live on these cg channels and feeling out of his scope / not in his element because of the overall behavior is pretty revealing too.

Kudos to the artist who drew AOC's tits like that. I'd buy that.
