Diversity in comics

Jon Del Arroz surveys the political diversity of Marvel:
Marvel has a diversity problem.

In that they have none in terms of diversity of thought. They are a pure social justice propaganda arm. This is dangerous when it comes to creating art, as if you have everyone thinking in lockstep, unable to get outside the box, you’ll have creative stagnation. More than that, when you turn children’s adventure fiction into adult message browbeating, you lose any semblance of fun that a product formerly had. It’s no wonder that sales have dropped by about half, when they have an entire writing core of every single one of their monthly writers hell-bent on a crusade of alienating half of the country in some social engineering through comics.  I don’t exaggerate my numbers either, and I did some leg work for you all so you might better make educated purchases, or lack thereof, of Marvel Comics.

Just looking on the comics rack, you can see where Marvel has decided to make a foolish stand. No sane person would go and buy these comics anymore, there’s nothing of value there. All they have left is legacy purchasers who have made such a habit of picking them up that they can’t drop it. Even those have been dwindling because Marvel’s taken their political nonsense to more of an extreme than Tor Books or Hollywood itself. Stories themselves don’t exist in a vacuum, however, it stems from their editorial and who they hire to write, which are no longer the brightest creative minds, but SJWs who yell the loudest and who purposefully virtue signal at every turn.

According to marvel.com, there are 18 writers on the current releases. I went through each and every one of their twitter accounts to give you a summary of where they spend their time on social media in terms of politics. I don’t mind people getting political occasionally, or even necessarily holding left wing views, but when it’s constant beating the drum of anger and hate, that’s what makes an SJW, and that’s where one needs to stay away (and is a primary reason for Marvel’s steep sales decline in recent years).  Here’s a brief summary of the writers’ twitter feeds, as I’ve gone through all of them for you:

Mike Costa – Constant Anti-Trump posts.

Jason Aaron – Anti-Trump, has #resist greenpeace retweet from inauguration. However, he doesn’t post politically very often, not pushing some anger crusade all the time.

Brian Michael Bendis – Anti-Trump posts, but posts so much it’s not a large percentage of his tweets.

Cullen Bunn – Rabid anti-Trump.

Becky Cloonan – a couple of snarky anti-Trump posts pre-election, but no political posts since. From the feeds, appears to be the sanest of the Marvel staff.

Gerry Duggan – Constant Anti-Trump posts, retweets Bernie (he can still win!).

Al Ewing – British, and doesn’t seem to post a lot of American politics, but very heavily steeped in globalism in immigration “rights” in his posts. Anti-Western civilization. 

Roxanne Gay –  Constant rants about feminism, anti-Trump posts. 

Zac Gorman – Complains about Republicans as “joke”, but only one recent post as such. Low percentage of political tweets.

Derek Landy – Anti-Trump, not overwhelming in political posts. Mostly sticks to posts about writing.

Kate Leth – Regular anti-Trump posts. Constant complaints about some boogeyman “privilege”, rambles at racist, sexist, etc., “white dudes”.  Rants about queer issues.

Stuart Moore – Regular posts anti-republican, anti-Trump.

Greg Pak – Complains about “representation” of different races. Lots of anti-Trump posts.

Dan Slott – Anti-trump rants all the time. 

Charles Soule – Constant anti-trump rants.

Nick Spencer – Rants about trump/republicans and calls anyone who disagrees with him flat out evil.

G.Willow Wilson – “Muslim” Ms. Marvel writer, rants anti-Trump posts all the time.

Chip Zdarksy – Constant anti-Trump posts.

UPDATE 3/22/17: Found another crop of Marvel writers: http://delarroz.com/?p=687  still batting 1000%. Looks like blackballing is real as the sample size becomes far less coincidental.

18/18 Marvel writers, 100%, are extreme left wing ideologues who hate half of the country, have nothing nice to say about the USA or its president ever.
So, here's the question. What do we do about it? We are working on a graphic novelization of QUANTUM MORTIS: A Man Disrupted, as you can see below. And we do have the rights to a considerable quantity of stories. But we have one - precisely one - self-appointed volunteer who is creating this as a labor of love in his spare time.

Is this something where a Kickstarter would make sense? I don't like the idea of relying solely upon the Dread Ilk for this, as you are already supporting more vital projects such as Gab, Infogalactic, and Castalia House. Those are strategic projects of general interest, whereas something like this is more specific to a single converged market.

My thought is that it would be interesting to subvert the current superhero genre with a group of nationalist superheroes who are totally opposed to the evil would-be rulers of the world; they'd be seen as villains, of course, by those who romanticized saving the UN every Saturday morning in the 1970s and 80s.

They'd be hunted relentlessly by the conventional superheroes as well as by the UN, Interpol, and all the globalist organizations. Marvel occasionally flirts with this sort of thing, except their themes are incoherent because they want their heroes to be personally rebellious and independent while at the same time being slavish servants of the global government and SJW ideology. We could call it Alt-Hero; typical scenarios would be foiling attempted assassinations of populist politicians, rescuing conservative speakers from antifa and Black Bloc mobs, and preventing mad corporatist schemes to do terrible things to large populations in the name of progress.

The advantage of the Kickstarter approach is that if there was not sufficient interest and the project failed as a result, there would be very little waste of time, effort, and money. What do you think? Is it something you'd find of interest? Is it a ridiculous idea? Is it worth looking into? The thing is, Castalia is going to publish at least one hardcover/softcover graphic novel anyhow, and so the writing, production and distribution elements are already in place. And every de-convergence starts with one small step.

The main problem is that Kickstarter is converged, as is Patreon. I don't trust either company with my credit card details, or to respect my personal privacy or choice of political candidate, and I don't want to financially-empower these people in any way. They hate us and want us dead. We need other alternatives.

This is no ridiculous idea. At one time, Marvel was the counterculture. At it's peak, it tapped into the underground (See Spider Man, Annual #14, 1980). This is no longer the case. You were right, our institutions have been completely converged.

Alt Right Super heroes.

There is some real potential here. You woudn't have to work hard to beat Marvel Comics in terms of story and character development. At this point Marvel and DC is just a series of political check boxes.

You could do some extremely subversive stuff here.

I am trying to think of a list of superhero tropes and sterotypes that can be stood on their heads.

We need at least one hero who is a hardcore pickup artist and unlike every character in the entire comic book universe can actually walk a young man through the steps of ice breaking through rapid escalation to...hmmn.

Anyway, are you thinking limited run like Watchmen or an on going series?

On-going series is the larger vision. Initially, it would have to be a one-off, with the idea that we'd springboard from that to a subscription model with three levels, digital, softcover, hardcover.

Anonymous Darth Dharmakīrti March 31, 2017 5:57 AM  

The interesting thing about the convergence at Marvel from my perspective is that comic arcs from 10-20 years ago have been the source material for the recent blockbuster hits. But once they're done with the Infinity War material (which is already pretty weak), where are they going to go? Are they really insane enough to think that they will do an $800 million opening weekend with a story arc showcasing a dindu grrrlpower Iron "Man"? Female Thor? Etc.?

No, obviously not, Disney may be evil but they're not stupid. Which raises the question of where exactly the raw story material is going to come from. Somehow I doubt they're going to go full bore Peter Parker Clone Saga or Dark Phoenix. And new stories sidelining the comic authors will only increase the isolation of the traditional studio.

Blogger Vikki Wilson March 31, 2017 5:57 AM  

Given your description -and agreement that heavy political messaging is an ugly thing in any type of fiction - I think there's a danger that the project would be just as clunky as those of your opponents.
Of course you would have the advantage that:
1.traditional comics of this genre are nationalist in outlook anyway.
2.Antifa would certainly make superb and absurd villains.
(An entertaining mixture of bullying and cowardice)
I was a big fan of the animation version of Aeon Flux which had similar political subtext.

Castalia House, of course. But we have to provide specifics and nail down at least one artist before we can accept anything from anyone. Jon Del Arroz knows some Christian comic artists who he suspects have been blackballed; one of them might be interested.

Anonymous SciVo de Plorable March 31, 2017 5:58 AM  

I love it! Supernormals kicking ass for them and theirs, only teaming up on a subsidiarity basis (so a pan-Anglosphere threat would get guys from the Five Eyes). Teasing each other on nationalist and sexist stereotypes, which would be a way to explore which are and are not true. (For example, I've heard on good authority that no Australian has ever actually said "a dingo ate my baby.") It would be awesome!

On the actual question at hand, yes. I think a Kickstarter makes the most sense, because there seems to be a rising cultural tide, but you can't objectively predict sales before the market exists.

I think Frank Frazetta can serve as an inspiration for a project like this. The animated film he worked on in the 80s with Ralph Bakshi, Fire and Ice, is quite good. There's a double disc set which also has a documentary on Frazetta called Painting With Fire. A great artist and a great guy. More like him, please.

Not as long as I am heading up the project. At a bare minimum, there won't be any lame monologues while kicking ass. You have to understand that the problem is not ideology; after all, saving the weak from the bad guys is an ideology. The problem is the insertion of an inappropriate ideology.

That's why they have to converge existing comics. Super-Feminist and Super-Tranny would not sell if they were open about their ideologies. But as we know, the West is practically screaming for a real Alt-Knight and a real Captain Hammer.

The latter's catchphrase, of course, will be "You have to go back!" Spoken as he subdues the illegal immigrant rapist and drops them off at the local ICE office.

Can you even imagine how NUTS the media would go?

@16 SPOT ON!!!! I love Frazetta! His art was lurid and real. There was a clear delineation between the masculine and feminine. He inspired many, many comic artists. People would purchase comics based merely on the covers, and those covers were done by artists who, clearly, brandished Frazetta's influence. Additionally, he was a graduate of Franklin K. Lane High School in Coney Island... I think. There is a documentary on Frazetta as well.

So, here's the question. What do we do about it?

1. An imprint specializing in traditional comic books would be a good first step.

2. Get comic book artists and writers who have been blackballed for not complying with the SJW ideology to generate content for it.

3. Fund issues via crowdfunding on your own platform; Introversion did it very successfully for Prison Architect. That way, every issue is guaranteed to at least break even.

Kickstarter, Patreon etc will work for now, but I expect them to cave in at the first sign of trouble. Basically what Tay said.

Blogger Resident Moron™ March 31, 2017 6:24 AM  

FWIW, my renewed interest in the super hero genre was sparked by The Dark Knight Returns graphic novel by Frank Miller, 1986.

Even then a friend bought me a copy on my birthday or I'd never have read it, so disinterested had I become.

I mention this because Miller is properly credited with reinvigorating the whole genre and we owe the decent films of recent times largely to his dark influence.

So thast model of starting with a graphic novel, turning it into a series (assuming it sells) and etc, should be replicable.

I'd buy, for certain.

Also, films like Dead Pool show there's a significant adult market for satire, subversion, and snark.

"Red Pill" - yes - HA! that would be great. At least 75 issues worth of material there, and in the hands of a relentless red piller you'd get a zillion laughs. Think of Garth Ennis' sham group "Section 8" with Dogwelder (he fights crime by welding dogs to people's faces!), Defenestrator, Six Pack - Ennis is most assuredly an SJW but this was the 90's before the whole thing went bezerk.

Probably the best hero could be ..... Social Justice Warrior! Come in from the cold to save all the oppressed!! The original MAD magazine would've had a field day with that one.

Make comics that are fun. Of all the things SJWs are against, fun is foremost. Just my thoughts. Make pulp comicbooks. Have heroes and heroines and cheesecake. Take all the messaging -ALL OF IT- and fuck it right in the eye.

That aside, all the great heroic narratives are about strong, independent heroes who do what weak authority figures won't. That's why Batman keeps carving it up at the box office. To make an alt-right comic, just make a comic.

Awesomeness is alt-right and alt-right is awesomeness; so speaketh Vox, so let Vox proceed.

Which leads to another potential hero:

Tribal was a career Marine Raider forced out by Obama's force reductions. He already had his bachelor's but chose not to go officer and enjoyed his service as a Gentlemen Ranker.

He has a Beardy McShooter look going with tribal tats, 5.11 fashions and fivefifty cord bracelets.

Once he was riffed he tries to get into Grad School (for something actually useful) and gets bounced for the crime of being a White Cisgendered Male.

Desperate for a little scratch and not wanting to become a contractor (or maybe he can't because he lost is FTS for telling a sexist joke online) He gets paid for a human genetics experiment and discovers his superpower, being much to his surprise 1/4 Native American.

He hunts down his biological grandfather who was a Medal of Honor winning 92 year old Code Talker from WWII. The Old Man formally adopts Tribal and as soon as his grandfather dies Tribal is now the chief of this nearly extinct-but legally recognized tribe.

Whether the comics are more light-hearted or serious, the SJW message is so normalized that anything running directly counter to it would garner attention and amusement by its mere existence.

Steve Ditko, the co-creator of Spider Man, left Marvel because he was a right-wing Objectivist and he (ahem...) objected to the increasingly left-leaning direction of their comics. Some of the stuff he did independently is pretty cool - my favorite is Mr. A, who was in turn the inspiration for Rorschach in Watchmen.

I guess what I'd try to avoid is obvious preachiness.

I'm really not interested in being told HOW to do anything, especially given that I have considerably more experience in actually doing things than most of the would-be advisors. I also don't need people telling me that it would be advisable to find an artist or two who can actually draw, who isn't going to do the art in a Cubist or Late Picasso style.

It's a simple question: is this sort of specific thing of interest to you or not?

Obviously, it will depend upon the execution. Assume, for the sake of the discussion, that the execution is competent.

Not only is this a great idea, but I think it could lead into more general comics with classic super hero stories that avoid political issues for the most part, and just focus on fantasy and sci-fi elements. I think there is a huge void there currently due to convergence. Hell, there may even be room for other lines of non-leftist comics such as horror, western, sword and sorcery, and more.

I don't think it would be necessary to print them on expensive paper. I never had a problem with the cheaper paper and ink used in the 1980s.

The Cuck--deranged villain who thinks he is the head of the superhero crew, or at least their sidekick. A big coward.

the Patriarch--mentor and father figure to the superheroes. Rich guy with a big house and lots of kids. When the supes come over for advice and counsel, his wife--happy, and literally barefoot and pregant--makes them sandwiches.

the Cross--mysterious figure who shows up in the air above crime scenes, arms outstretched in the shape of a cross, blazing with light. Villains are often deeply distracted and even horrified and repulsed by the Cross. But the real power of the Cross is on passersby. Some percentage of the passerby are transformed by seeing the cross. They also blaze with light and become fast, strong, and fearless. All lies, deceptions, and illusions the villain is perpetrating fall away. Then they kick the villain's ass. Meanwhile the villain is trying to gun down the Cross (who is invulnerable) while screaming incoherently.

Castaliahouse is of course welcome to these ideas however it wants, as long as I can too.

For a long time, I've felt we needed to start marketing entertainment with our values to younger audiences. Obviously, we need to compete for the future against SJW nonsense, but we also need for normal American kids to be entertained. They need good stories with good writing and good artwork because we all just plain NEED that in our lives.

I had an idea for superhero teams from around the world that occasionally work together on big projects, though there are rivalries (the Americans and Russians, for example). Also, what makes them superheroes relates to the national character of their homelands. Our team would have a lot of lab-enhanced abilities; the Japanese team would be cyborgs; the Russians would focus on brute strength and durability; the Europeans would harness ancient volk magic. Bad guys would be SJW-types, not just in ideology, but behavior: duplicitous, underhanded, traitorous, grandstanding, etc.

The main problem with print comics is simply that they cost too much. They've priced themselves out of the market. I stopped buying comics in the late 90's when the prices went over $1.50/issue. They simply weren't worth the cost any more.

Finally when her lesbo lover dumps her she finally turns to the guy she has kept in orbit all her life. Woke. This should be his dream but she's so disgusting now even he turns her down. Karen blames him for making her everything she never wanted to be and then she kills herself in front of him.

At one point, I had 1700 plus comics in plastic bags and boxes. I was a Make Mine Marvel guy. Walked ten miles each Friday to get my comic fix.

I'd like this.

A Weird Background would be useful.

The DC folk have their JSA space station. Marvel has the Blue Area of the Moon, the Watcher, the Celestials creating the mutagene 50k years ago, mutants...

1. Some guy had the theory that the elites are living off planet now, an untouchable class above their damage. This leads to a Space Hero.

The SH can fight on Earth, and occasionally go into NEO or the Moon, and really cut loose.

2. Each nation has a tribal spirit which can bestow power on the Defender. The Rodina, Uncle Sam....

Captain Britain in Marvel Comics is kinda an example of this.

This gives you an excuse for a wide array of supers with one basic origin story, like Marvel did with mutants.

3. The Moon Shot was a fake. I disagree with you, but it would be fun. This leads to a Chess Grandmaster/Troll character who is secretly in a war with others like Shiorzo (Soros) Sorrow who are also manipulators. But make the Sorrowful Man (whose name is a joke as he's anything but) more of a Fu Manchu, Head of Crime Int'l.

Said Troll Lord beat the Soviets by bluffing them. So, make him the world's best poker player.

4. The Worldwalls are breaking due to the number of abortions. Priests of Moloch are trying to summon Ancient Entities from Beyond (Can you say purple robed and hooded figures with kris daggers? Sure you can. Lots of Mooks for the Magic Hero, and others to beat down, plus a few High Level Sorcerors, and a Demon Prince, and Possessed by something Really Bizarre character).

This breaking of the Worldwalls is a side effect, but it has its own nastiness (not sure this is logically in tune with the message desired to be spread...one of the nice things about Magic is you can make the metaphor fit by changing the rules.).

That side effect is Immigration from various Other Dimensional Empires and Scumholes. These definitely fit in with 'you must go back'.

"I don't think our community is improved by someone carrying the Zombie Virus. I'm sorry, sir, but your application to enter this reality is denied."

"I understand Lord Headcrusher that in your reality if a bank does not protect itself with Level Five forcefields, its acceptable to loot it, but you're not in your reality any longer, are you?"

Fun fact: when Hasbro came to Marvel in the early 80s asking for a backstory and collaboration so they could relaunch GI Joe to compete with the phenomenal success of Kenner's Star Wars line, Larry Hama dusted off an idea that he'd been toying with for some time called Fury Force that was a crack team of SHIELD agents that fought Hydra in a pseudo-science fictional near future, and renamed the characters and organizations.

GI Joe is, quite literally, the same thing as SHIELD and Cobra is literally the same thing as HYDRA. The Winter Soldier movie is, in a sense, the GI Joe movie as it should have been.

The thing is; Winter Soldier ALREADY features a lot of alt-right friendly ideas. So does The Incredibles. The point is, you have to be a little bit more subtle than Based Stickman goes and punches George Soros and Jean Claude Junker and Angela Merkel in the face the way Captain America would run around punching Hitler in the face in comics in the 40s, unless the point is merely to be a kind of slapstick novelty.

You would be sued if you attempted to do so. Looking at a useful article on the subject, one discovers some basic facts as to why it is not possible to use the Batman character in the manner you describe.

*Batman was created by Bob Kane (1915-1998) and Bill Finger (1914-1974) and first published in May 1939. It is the IP of DC Comics, a division of SJW-converged Time-Warner. Under the copyright laws of the EU and similar countries, the original 1939 publication remains under copyright until 2069 (70 years after the death of the last surviving contributor). Under those of most countries apart from Bananaland, it remains so until 2049 (50 years after the death of the last surviving contributor). In Bananaland, thanks to Disney's most recent re-write of the copyright law (1998), it's protected until 2035 (95 years from date of publication). This only covers the issues of 1939.

*The Batman character itself is probably covered by a trademark, which has no date of expiration as long as it remains in use.

Bottom line - Create your own characters, your own stories - or adapt those which are actually in the public domain. The musical West Side Story is merely an adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, to give an example.

An aging French farmer sighs as he sees the car with EU stars on the door arrive. All he wanted to do is to make cheeses as his father, and grandfather did, while teaching his son to do the same. But that has made that become increasingly difficult.

"Did you get my latest note?" demands Captain Euro, striding up the walkway from his issued car to the farm house. "You must meet the new EU regulations soon, if you wish to remain in business!" he barks to the farmer.

Sighing again as he stands, the farmer replies, "Yes, of course, but the new regulations contradict some of the old ones that we spent so much money to comply with. In fact, my advocate found the new ones difficult to even read".

"Listen, old man, your family has a nice dairy farm here. You don't want anything to ... happen to it ... do you?" sneers Captain Euro. "Your advocate's incompetence is not the EU's problem. Comply, or else. You haven't much time left to meet our expectations", he continues.

Stewart, the depressed comic-book store owner on Big Bang Theory is basically an animal-hide nailed to the door of pop-culture. He's a warning.
Comic book artists,who did have decent businesses, were bankrupted, suffered through divorces, and I'm not sure, but possibly attempted suicides,if not succeeding,exactly.

There's an epic superhero for America called Pigman. Created by Bosch Fawstin. Pigman appears in The Infidel featuring Pigman. He fights jihadists in his pigskin leather outfit. Kills them mercilessly in many brutal ways. He could be considered a civic nationalist. But very nationalist none the less. He has a strong sense of justice and is brutal. His belt-buckle is the American flag.

Bosch publishes the comic on his own in digital. It can be found on Comixology. There is one print version called Propiganda which is a collection of pamphlets, posters & memes. The comic with the story-line is only digital.

I would love there to be a print version of the Infidel series. Maybe Bosch, Vox & Castelia could work together on this.

Regarding the SJW's in modern superhero comics: Bosch can't stand it. He understands hero-ism & superhero-ism. He understands whats happening with Marvel & DC. He's been bashing it for years.

Check out Pigman. He's awesome.

Villains and Heroes and CrimeOrgs....

1. Instead of AIM or Hydra, have the ANTIFAS (Associated New Tactical Insurrection Fighting Alliance System) since a good group of evil mooks needs an acroynym.

Other mook group is the dagger wielding Priests of Moloch, with the name A.B.O.M.B.I.N.A.T.I.O.N..

Associated supervillain...Shapeless, human sorcerer, fire elementalist....has managed to shed any stable form, so can be anyone, for a few minutes. He is trying to get everyone to shed their limits, and become shapeless beings of flame.

UnR@az1un.....name needs help, but the idea is of someone possessed by a Spirit of Madness far from Earth, so far, that even things like land, and air are debatable. Its very existence on Earth tends to leave patches of unstable reality, of primal mud. Its defense is that sometimes its invulnerable to an attack, and sometimes not, except to a weapon of Faith or Pure Reason which it is always vulnerable too. This is the really freaky weird thing in the Priests of Moloch superbaddies.

Other villains
1. Moonbat...his bite creates da crazy, and then he goes back, night after night, to sup from the ever more tasting increasing crazy.
2. Black Knight....instead of the Deconverger, a viciously amused, and dreadfully dangerous man who uses his innate malice for good. He's the son of a demon and a human woman.
3. Man of Steel...Stalin sold the soul he didn't believe in to a devil who decided not to cash in the soul because he saw how much evil Stalin did. So, when Stalin 'died', he went into a coma, and began to transform. Now, he's literally a Man of Steel, and he wants to Try Socialism One More Time. This Time It Will Work.

This also brings up deconstruction. Its useful to deconstruct enemy icons, and part of this is putting up strawmen in the comic as standins for these icons, and then have your heroes tear them up.

So, if you don't like Robin, Boy Wonder, create Osprey, and have your hero show that Osprey is just not up to competing with the hero (don't destroy Osprey as that's too obvious).

Sigh...I actually have a comic book idea called "Liberal Man" who would be a parody of a leftist superhero. I also have a more serious "series" planned out in my head. I used to draw my own comic for fun, on "real" comic book paper. (Blue layout guides, huge size, for publishing.) I'd love to actually be able to make the series a TV show. However, as some others have said, making it not obvious is a good idea. My team are all on the right, but there's nothing that would broadcast it except dialogue and beliefs put into action. Let people get invested in the characters first as "heroes" and be more subtle about any message. Just let the characters be people who are firm in right/alt-right beliefs, and have it come out naturally. Any leftists that may read could avoid being triggered badly enough to throw it out and the red-pill could come in a nickel and dime fashion.

My personal problem with doing a comic is time. Between a job, a kid, and trying to get other stuff done, it's quite the timesink. I don't know about others, but when I was doing it as a hobby, one page of art would take a couple of hours. That's not coloring, either. I've toyed with doing something small, and maybe putting it on a website, but don't have a scanner. Never liked how it looked on the ones used, though. Too jagged.

Mountain....he seems an old survivalist who is very dangerous with knife, trap, stealth, and berserk attack. A good counter to Wolverine.

He's one of the original mountain men. He killed a bear with a knife, crawled twenty miles on his stomach in the wrong direction to what he thought was the fort, but ended up with an Indian tribe who hated him. So they put him through some whacked out magic gauntlet of pain that was virtually guaranteed to kill him. Only, he survived. Now he's immortal. Occasionally he gets visits from the Old Shaman who reminds him of what happened to the Shaman's people when they welcomed in immigrants.

He's full of piss and vinegar, and can explain his 1840 or 70 or so views clearly, and why they are superior to nowadays.
If he's not jumping down your throat with a knife in hand.

One thing to do is to make a list of threats, and then make a lurid, innovative example of each.

Captain Euro, who battles all the enemies of EU oppression.

The policewoman nodded to the nurses swabbing the crime victim, and stepped out of the room. She turned to the policeman standing guard outside, and murmured, "It looks like another one. We won't know until the lab report, though". Shaking his head, he replied, "What kind of evil genius would deliberately bioengineer an STD?"

"Well, we certainly know where it started, and how it is spreading", replied the policewoman. "It seems like every 'refugee' arriving from Obscuristan is carrying it."

"Yes, and they are more than willing to spread it around, by force", observed the policeman grimly.

A hatchet faced man banged open the doors of the medical facility. "I am Captain Euro. I have arrived to take charge of all the sexual assault investigations. Stand aside!", he bellowed at the nurses who tried to stop him.

Turning to face him, the policeman asked, "By what authority do you interfere in this manner?". Captain Euro's lip curled, and he glared at the police officers, "These cases are a matter for EU Security! We will stamp out racism at any cost!"

"But sir, these are sexual assault cases, we must protect our European women, surely!", blurted out a nurse as she carried yet another rape testing kit to yet another room.

"The EU is committed to protecting all women! Anyone who says otherwise is a liar! Maybe a nationalist!", Euro shouted. Turning to look at the police officers, then the nurses, he dropped his voice and said with an oily tone "You don't want to be considered a nationalist...do you?"

A tired looking woman came the entrance, leading a 12 year old girl and a 10 year old boy. "Can anyone help us?", she asked plaintively, "Both my children have been...attacked". Tears were welling up in her eyes. The girl's expression was blank, as if she saw nothing at all. The boy's face was different. His eyes slid around the room, seeing everything with a penetrating laser-like glare. His jaw was set, his mouth tight, his expression wary. He looked older, beyond his years.

Captain Euro turned to the bedraggled group and smiling only from his lips said, "I'm from the EU, and am here to help you!". The boy slipped his hand out of his mother's. "You could have helped us by keeping the scum out of Europe!", he spat, looking Euro in the eyes.

"What? That's racism! What school do you go to?" squealed Captain Euro, fumbling in his pocket for his notebook.

"Please, he's not thinking clearly, a terrible thing happened to him!", the mother pleaded. "Don't report him! He knows better than to say such things! He's been taught what free speech really means! Please! Please! Don't report him!", she begged of Euro.

"This wouldn't have happened if Holger Danske was here", murmured the 12 year old girl as she stared into space, "He'd know what to do...".

"Holger Danske? Holger Danske is just a legend, a story! He's not real, never was", laughed Captain Euro, "Just a story nationalists tell each other, to make themselves feel better. That's all he is!"

"Maybe that's what you think", replied the boy as he grimly looked Captain Euro in the eyes, "maybe that's what you think".

Might be something of interest to CH. These guys may also be a talent pool to draw (no pun intended) upon to use for other titles. I think CH would find a small, steady market for right of center or even center graphic novels based on the military (current or historical). Similar to the linked or historical stories like the "300", or a story line from the Crusades, Viking Era, etc...

In defense of converging regular comics did you see what they did with the gay black hero Mr Terrific, oy vey you would think they would at least make him more butch than his boyfriend. The first issue of black captian America had him marching in a gay pride parade and beating up people protecting the US border.

This weeks "Chicongo fire" had a blond guy doing what nigglets usually do dropping rocks from bridges, Amtrak spent billions to counter it with Positive Train Control. This weeks Chicongo Med had a smart niggerette vs stupid blond girl story along with an old unloved feminist getting euthanized.

Would buy, definitely.

To start you only need one hero. The Evil Legion Of Evil comes alter.

My suggestion, which Vox doesn't need, but I want to say it.

Teodoro "Red" Pilar, recently released from Ft Leavenworth after being court-martialled and serving 3 years. His crime? Interrupting the rape of an 8-year-old boy in the Sandbox.

At loose ends, he returns to the only stable home he's ever known, his grandfather's rancheria in New Mexico. Soon after he arrives, illegal immigrant gangs assault the farmhouse, killing his grandmother and mortally wounding his grandfather.

After destroying the attackers, while dying, grandfather does the Big Reveal, passing on his powers to Red.

The most important power is the ability to strip illusions, either of external events (the all-powerful antifa army is 6 skinny cowards with hoodies) or of internalized lies, hard even on the most jaded and cynical of based stickmen, and absolutely devastating to SJWs.

As Doctor Xavier stand-in, we introduce Grandpa and Grandma. Grandpa is a former deep-state operative and a genius with electronics and organization. After discovering a viable cloaking technology, he retired from the Nothing To See Here Citizens Electronics Company and later faked his own death. He built a retreat in the mountains of northern New Mexico shielded from all prying eyes.

Grandpa and Grandma have an indeterminate number of grandchildren. They are ensconced in useful positions throughout the world and most are ready to help bring down the Deep State at a moment's notice.

I haven't read comics seriously since I was 18 or 19 years ago.

Most of the comics bought these days as far as I can tell are manga, Its low literacy central where I live and even here they fly off the shelves.

I suspect this is because manga is about story and character not Leftist brainwashing.

Also note I've see a few hints that D.C at least has an inkling of this, a recent issue of Wonder Woman has the her in a straitjacket on the cover art.


Anonymous Man of the Atom March 31, 2017 4:08 PM  

Consider formats from 1950s and 1960s ... closer to graphic novels. Main story, 24-28 pages; 1st backup story, 8-10 pages; 2nd backup story; 8-10 pages; 3rd backup story, 5 pages (similar to classic Steve Ditko twisted tales).

The 40-64 page "specials" sold well for a quarter in the mid-60s; they'd probably do well at $1.99 to $3.99, depending on the artist/writer teams.

Perhaps reprints of Steve Ditko's work -- he's certainly no fan of SJWs or of modern comics. Perhaps convince him to do some work for hire.

Might be some of the old 1930-1950s characters that have lapsed into the public domain. Alan Moore did a graphic novel series with a few years back using Doc Strange --> Tom Strange -- and related heroes, villains.

In the center is a Jewish girl and transgender brown male, who is in turn embracing a Christian girl in a miniskirt. To the right of her, a black science-lover, or perhaps atheist.

Also, embracing the Jewish girl is a Moslem girl.

I'm a comics pro myself, and have thought of alt-friendly characters and plots. Not super-powers so much, but YA-level adventure. I've been kicking around an idea... Cat'O'Nine Tails, or just Nine Tails, a 21st-century swashbuckler who in childhood was ripped away from his parents by a corrupt CPS system. He survives the foster/group home gauntlet, joins the military and becomes a special forces operative. He seeks to reconnect with his parents, and finds his mother dead and his father a broken man living on the street. Leaving the service, he remakes himself again, into a punisher of corrupt/power-mad officials, a thug-crusher, a media scourge, and an ally of families menaced by the system. His trademark is the whip he uses to lay a little "education" across the backs of his deserving targets, leaving them tied for the authorities to find, along with a message.
