Alt-Hero in action

As there has been a tremendous amount of interest expressed in supporting the launch of a Castalia Comics line, and because the Brainstorm almost unanimously decided it was a project that merited pursuing, I've done some preliminary work in developing storylines, creating characters, finding good artists, and sorting out what sort of formats we should utilize. This is a mostly new area for me - writing the text for three Archangels comics is the full extent of my previous experience - so there is a bit of a learning curve involved, but I'm leaning towards a combination of smaller digital products combined with larger softcover print books and the occasional hardcover book for the hard core supporters and comics aficionados.

We also have to deal with the fact that Kickstarter is not a serious option. I contacted them and was open about what we intend to do with Alt-Hero, but instead of simply telling us that there was no chance in Hell they would permit such an egregious offense to their SJW principles, they said that we should put the entire campaign together, launch it, and then at that point they would let us know if it was acceptable or not.

Right. Fortunately, there are other options, as needless to say, even this small glimpse of the world of Prophet, Captain Euro, Michael Martel, and the UN-sponsored Global Justice Initiative will suffice to trigger outrage in the average SJW. Assuming that support for the project continues to remain strong, I expect we'll launch the Alt-Hero kickstarter in 2-3 months.

A general comic/graphic novel question, how many copies do you need to sell before a comic turns a profit?

How many copies do you need to sell before a comic turns a profit?

It totally depends on what you spend for the art and the writing. There is no meaningful answer to such a general question.

This is an absolutely thrilling project. It's EXACTLY what is needed.

My ultimate dream would be an Alt-Right quasi Justice League, with each branch represented by one "superhero": one for the Alt-West, one for the trad Caths, one for the Southern Nationalists, one for the paleo-NS supporters, one for the Prussian Hohenzollernists, etc. etc.

They would have sharp internal disputes, as do, say, Batman and Superman in the better DC material. But they would come together for the greatest clashes. Yet each would have their own book, their own individual storylines, tailored to their identities.

Regardless, in the meantime, wherever this project begins, with whatever individual hero headlines the first "Alt-Right comic book," I'm on board. I'll buy the book, subscribe to it, support the not-kickstarter kickstarter, whatever.

Bosch Fawstin pioneered this kind of thing with Pigman. He does faces well, but he's not so great at physical action. Castalia's mystery artist is better in that respect.

Companies like Marvel produce quality work on a tight schedule by splitting the job up between writers, pencilers, inkers, and colorists. If you're lucky, you find one of those once-in-a-generation talents who has a totally unique visual style.

But in spite of his heroism, he is arrested for hate crimes when the Koran being held by an "innocent bystander" is burned in the counterattack.

"Arnold Bernid "Casey" Jones is a fictional character from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics and all related media.

Casey sometimes has long, dark hair, wears a hockey mask and sometimes cut-off biking gloves, and sometimes carries his weapons in a golf bag over his shoulder.

His weapons include baseball bats, golf clubs, cricket bats, and hockey sticks. In most installments, he becomes a love interest of April O'Neil.

A Magic Hero could use the ghost of the Spirit of St. Louis as an astral travel/teleport to get him to the trouble which might be a break in the Worldwalls, and an illegal alien from Hellworld #13 breaking in. And the various Hellworlds could correspond to countries so there would be a Mex Hellworld, and a Syrian Hellworld (not directly called this but many clues to it) with say evil ifrits in the Syria Hellworld.

#62....American carries them all.

Might have different effects from each. The Peacemaker doesn't kill, but puts the target into a catatonic state. The 1911 has a couple molecules of antimatter in its bullets so that any target that gets hit goes....Riiip as a flame lance rips through it.....including small tanks. The Bowie might be a monomolecular blade.

Or historical is not bad and magic. Although the above as a time travelling hero from some Bad Future sent back in time to stop it would work pretty well.

I like that. And a Time Travelling Hero offers a chance for various alt futures that are doom laden, and a happy 25th Century, and various criminals running around time trying to create their preferred future.

Also, the varied weapons should be historically connected....its not just a Bowie Knife, but its the knife used at the Alamo....and the Colt is the one used by Wyatt Earp.

The Frank could use a Franziska. (throwing axe of the franks, used to conquer France)
The Saxon should then obiously use a Seax. (long multi purpose knife, like a Machete but leaner blade)
A German could use a Schmeisser StG44... but that would probably be confused with a AK47. The inventor Schmeisser was captured first by USA, then by Soviets and worked for 6 years in the USSR, during the time the "Kalashnikov" (a.k.a. AK 47) came out. It is the same as the StG44 with less precision and with longer service intervals.
So probably the AK47 was mostly invented by Schmeisser himself.

Clearly, he's wielding a steel shafted golf club.

Will there be veteran of middle eastern wars in a boonie hat? Boonie hat would translate well to comics.
Obviously he would drive a HEMTT utility truck and his weapon of choice is air support.

Once there was a sad puppy. The puppy was sad because SF and F were SJW converged. Then, on a moon lit knight, the sad puppy watched a VP livestream of the Hugo Awards.
The transformation into the Were-Puppy began immediately.

Did he just hit him with a Based Stick?

My first thought was "+3 Based Stick of Reconquest."

My second thought was "Hey, an RPG..."

Wonderful. He's noir, he's on the streets instead of within the councils of the mighty, he's people. There are no characters like that anymore. I am thinking of the short film The Punisher Bootleg films, Phil Joanou, the better, early Jack Reacher character. Doesn't want to be somebody, okay with being nobody until the innocents are threatened and then he's a mighty stick and a based fistman. Not much competition for a character like that. I love this guy already. Y'all have the field to yourself.

Yeah, but does he have the super powers to drink milk...

He's not just noir. He's nobody. He's anybody. He's the man you passed on the street last night, did you see his face? Nope, you didn't see his face. He could be anyone.

Nice.

What is the contribution level to steal a HWNDU flag?

So we're only 8 hours away from riots on any given day? Geez, civilisation really is balanced on a knife's edge.

Way closer than that. The widespread ~1977 NYC blackout had widespread looting within 15 minutes of onset.

In addition to the comic, is there a chance for three panel here or on the Castalia blog?

If you guys don't hook up with Larry Corriea and do a MHI comic, I just don't know if I can believe in humanity any more.

Just saying.
