The Alt★Hero troll

It appears this is the "expert" in comics who has been denigrating the Alt★Hero project, falsely claiming to know what our costs are, and engaging in a futile attempt to demoralize us and our backers while sock-puppeting under three different names, Death Ray, Vox Diabolus, and Zardoz.

"Filth are my politics! Filth is my life! That is why I cartoon for MAD magazine (Scooby Don't, Detective Slow-On-The-Draw and others), publish my own vile comics (Deep Fried, Weapon Brown and Clarissa), and otherwise drag all that is Art down to my level--right below the CHUDs!"

No wonder he's so angry about the mere existence of Alt★Hero. He's not entirely without talent, but I don't know why anyone would ever want to work with him now after seeing how unprofessional his behavior appears to have been, both here and on the campaign page.

Social justice warriors are neither well-meaning nor are they on the side of truth and beauty. It's not hard to understand why they reliably produce so much ugliness and falsehood.

He may have been bashing it on r/AltRightChristian on reddit as well. Someone showed up in the sub after news on it was posted, engaging in some very clear concern trolling and suggesting the whole thing was a scam, the comics would never be delivered, and so on. He ended up getting a ban since his post history was explicitly alt-right hostile, and his "concerns" were a clear put on.

I barely know anything about games, but I did recently buy Talon based on Jeffro's reviews of it at http://castaliahouse.com/. It was out of print, so I had to pre-order (at a reduced price) until they had enough orders to justify a run of 500.

This makes sense, as printing all the elements of a board game is quite a different proposition than printing a book.

MAD magazine hasn't been relevant in over 15 years (the last time I saw a copy on a magazine rack, about the time they started including actual third party ads). I've seen DEEP FRIED and yeah, it's scuzzy and not all that funny. Clarissa is about a little girl who's regularly molested - and that's supposed to be the source of it's humor (no, seriously). If that's the level https://infogalactic.com/info/Mad_%28magazine%29 has slipped to, no wonder it's suffering. From what little I've seen of Alt*Hero, this guy wouldn't be good enough to hire - perhaps if you produced a Golden Age EC-style horror comic he might fit in there - but someone would probably have to write decent horror stories for him.

No WP/IG page for Jason (guess he doesn't matter enough to rate their attention) the only mention I found was https://infogalactic.com/info/Weapon_Brown
The story features parodies of the cast of Peanuts as well as a number of parodied objects and settings set in a post-apocalyptic world, and drawn in a darker, more adult style as a direct contrast to the more innocent style used by Charles M. Schulz. The one-shot also includes a back-up feature, A Weapon Brown Christmas which shows a story set sometime before the events of A Peanut Scorned.
I'm willing to bet he got sued over that. The Estate of Charles M. Schulz is as protective of the Peanuts gang as Disney is of their famous characters.

Hey Vox,

I'll send you an e-mail on this in case you don't see this comment, but Scott Adams is trying to move away from using "Social Justice Warrior" because he thinks it actually *helps* the SJWs. I disagree, as liberals on Reddit use "SJW" even to describe themselves, or to try to say that conservatives are always "screaming SJW!!!!" like they're a boogeyman.

Not really. The difference is that the gun is linear power payoff. The penis is exponential. While both may be used poorly, misuse of one of these has much worse results in the expressed future (because no human can see the unborn children of the dead, and shooting someone doesn't necessarily teach you that shooting people is pleasant).

The K-selected attitude treats both as dangerous tools which need to be self-controlled.

What an odd coincidence that intelligence is polymorphic and Asians have the most of it.

Blogger Azure Amaranthine October 06, 2017 12:44 PM  

If we were doing a compare and contrast, Aeoli, you'd be correct about the K-selected attitude being
"The gun is good. The penis is evil." relative to the r-selected attitude.

You did not, however, actually state that comparison. You stated that that was a straight characterization of K-selected attitudes, which is simply not true. If it were true, there would be no K selection at all beyond that which can be accumulated during a single generation and then invariable lost.

Blogger Azure Amaranthine October 06, 2017 12:50 PM  

I would add that the very idea that sexuality is evil is a distortion of the actual morality of the matter. This distortion actually gives rise to the very r-selected modes of thought about sex, in that they realize that "sex is bad" is a lie, but they overcorrect just as far or further in the opposite direction.

You're assuming, incorrectly, that I'm using an incorrect definition for k-selection, where reproduction is zero.

"K-selected species possess relatively stable populations and tend to produce relatively low numbers of offspring; however, individual offspring tend to be quite large in comparison with r-selected species. K-selected species are characterized by long gestation periods lasting several months, slow maturation (and thus extended parental care), and long life spans."

@70 I have a theory, it's the suffix. Remove "warrior" and replace with a snide pejorative. Peacock is merely one of those pejoratives. For example: "Social Justice Narcissist", or "Social Justice Role Player", or "Social Justice Marxist". I theorize the suffix should not be a direct insult like, say, "Social Justice Idiot". I don't that will work. Direct insults tend to motivate those who are insulted. Be subtle. What do you think?

"I know a smart black guy, therefore racial IQ differences are meaningless."

Length of settled urbanization is also explained by neanderthal admixture. Anyway, all you have to do is look at unmixed homo sapiens sapiens in sub-Saharan Africa to determine that high average intelligence is not native to the species.

The point you really ought to be challenging is my assertion that Asperger's comes from neanderthals. That would make this more interesting for me.

"K-selected species possess relatively stable populations and tend to produce relatively low numbers of offspring; however, individual offspring tend to be quite large in comparison with r-selected species."

Thereby demonstrating that humans, of every variety, are definitively k-selected.

But don't let that get in the way of being special.

"Length of settled urbanization is also explained by neanderthal admixture."

Only if you ignore the portions of sub-Saharan Africa with ancient cities. Unsurprisingly, these are also the areas that produce intelligent Africans.

"The point you really ought to be challenging is my assertion that Asperger's comes from neanderthals. That would make this more interesting for me."

You're already demonstrably wrong on that point, if only because we know there are multiple origins and forms of Asperger Syndrome, let alone the broader autism spectrum (for which there are at least three causes).

SJWs are R-selected and like to sexualize children early so as to expand their reproductive window, maximizing quantity of offspring over quality. Mr. Zardoz considers himself clever because he thinks other people aren't also sexualizing children because they never thought of it (which observation is often true).

Blogger Aeoli Pera October 06, 2017 1:29 PM  

Furthermore, the R-selected are triggered by the cultural transmission of mores which discourage social parasitism by suggesting parasites ought to be punched by attractive, k-selected people with high standards. They are thus inclined to subvert these attempts, which threaten their reproductive strategy.

You need to grasp the difference between "average of under-fed dirt peasants" and "average of the urban classes". There's a *vast difference*.

It's a weird cult flick starring Sean Connery and the delectable Charlotte Rampling.

The opening features a huge floating idol head which preaches to a group of savage men that "The gun is good. The penis is evil."

"F***ing mores, how do they work? And I don't wanna talk to a social scientist, y'all motherf***ers lying, and getting me pissed."

I don't have to lie. You actually stated that the K-selected attitude on the penis was "it's bad". The actual attitude is "it's dangerous". There's a difference Aeoli.

I don't know where or why you even brought a social scientist into the matter with regards to my comment.

If you want to talk about lying, that's actually why we took issue with your statement... because it's a lie. IF you had said "Most of the modern K-selected people" or perhaps "this has been inaccurately expressed by the K selected in this way" we could actually have a debate.

However, your assertion was flat wrong. I'm not your enemy Aeoli, I'm not intentionally lying to you. The very concept that "sex is bad" is a perversion of the actual morality that leads to K-selection in the first place. It's a perversion intentionally created as a strawman (which sadly some people actually believed) in order for r-selectists to point out that "that's a lie" so that they could swing the pendulum over into broad sexual immorality.

Perhaps it comes down to this, Aeoli. Stating (effectively) that "x is attitude of desirable group" is probably a bad idea, especially when "x is an undesirable attitude that needs to be weeded out of said desirable group" would be much more plain, or even better yet "X is fake attitude of desirable group."

"The actual attitude is "it's dangerous"."

It certainly is when the wrong individuals maximize its use. It's also dangerous when the K-selected group fails to use it to the degree that the environment will support. It's especially dangerous when the environment is fundamentally based on a fictional reality as to what constitutes "Survival".

This fictional reality is equivalent to misallocated capital. It will be destroyed.

As to r-selecteds and breeding, it appears that in reality the r's are not doing that well in the breeding strategies.

I say this because I must consider that in specific applications, such as immivasion of Europe and the United States, the immivaders are actually the K-selected group, and that the majority of the native populations are r's, and really bad r's at that.

Probably more bitterness over the success of Schulz and other successful comics creators. He does not have their success, acclaim, and adoration, therefore he must minimize or destroy that legacy, instead of working diligently toward his own.

The creator of web comic "Sinfest" is solidly in this camp (and moreso now that he's acquired a 3rd-Wave Feminist SO), and even Frank Cho was rabidly against "B.C" and Johnny Hart while in his "Liberty Meadows" days. Cho seems to have found his success and grown out of that phase.

Envy, jealously, and greed probably go a long way to explaining this behavior.

And a 4-day old, $80K banked, crowd-funded comics project that blows any of his audience participation projects out of the water? That's gonna make a Gamma's skin sting like salt on an open wound.

It will be even worse for him when he does the actual research on Castalia House.

Nathan, you can see it all on display if you attend SPX. It's normally held the week before BaltimoreCon (where you often see Frank Cho, as he lives there).

Lots of independent creators in attendance, all too often running down the big name authors and artists, while whining about how their books are unfairly ignored.

Adding to Matthew's comment at 104, the Sean Connery character was groomed and trained from a youth onward in simple reading, use of a gun, terror, mayhem, etc. to get the goods for the lotus eaters. Zardoz (the controller) is a corruption of the first book the Connery character was pointed to: "The Wizard of Oz" - "Zardoz". Too clever by far and too much pride. You may guess the outcome, especially facing Sean Connery.

I agree that this guy knows how to draw, especially when he's drawing simplistically like in Clarissa. There is an ease and effortlessness to it, that is the sign of having done this for a long time.

Ok, show of hands...hold it up if you are a white supremacist.

No?

I can tell you I'm not. Am I a Western Civ chauvinist? Better believe it, as I think the awesomeness of Western Civ speaks for itself. Has nothing to do with race, has everything to do with culture, with ideas. Some ideas inherently bring out the best in humanity, or celebrate the best in humanity. Some ideas try to defy the same, redefine the same or warp and mutate the same.

Embrace the good, true and beautiful. Shun the deceitful, dishonorable, decaying and degenerate.

There are good ideas and bad ideas. Western Civ is an assemblage of some of the very best offered by humanity over time and used to build something beautiful and noble.

Now, we have to defend it, all humans who value civilization.

Just so we're clear:
To Yungbluth, it's okay to draw comics about children being sexually abused.

But funding independent comics like Alt-Hero is the same as being a National Socialist? Yeah right.

These SJWs will whine/complain about anything that they're jealous of, won't they?

They aren't unmixed though, are they? 2-4% of their DNA comes from an allegedly unknown species. Or that's what I've read, for what it's worth.
My theory has been that they are the result of Homo Sapiens and a late-era population of surviving Homo Erectus/Ergaster mixing. If you look at a Congoid negro, the major facial features are less pronounced H. Erectus facial features. If we google "Homo Erectus Reconstruction" the reconstructions look almost like Congoid humans.
As for the San/Kung Bushmen, I am not sure if they are mixed. They were the first according to OOA theory, and it would have been similar groups that mated with H. Erectus and produced the Congoid negro. But it's interesting anyway.

Blogger WynnLloyd October 06, 2017 7:03 PM  

Why is that a mark of shame? Because of his insistence on avoiding race realist explanations? I thought that sucked, too. However I did find his discussion of the Eurasian spread of plants and animals vs the American spread and how differences in climate in the latter prevented the spread of agricultural knowledge.

Horn Africans built cities, but they're technically East African Caucasoids, so I don't know if the Ethiopians or Eritreans would count or not.

Blogger WynnLloyd October 06, 2017 7:08 PM  

The Ethiopians are technically Caucasians by skull type.
It's the Congoids (Bantus + Pygmies + Nilotics) who are the ones I think he is describing.
Or not. It's hard to follow.

Jason Yungbluth @151: " It will remind you what your expectations (as a donor to a pledge drive) should be from the person whose career you are advancing through your generosity and faith."

Your first mistake here is your assumption that many (most?) of the backers here are primarily interested in either getting "stuff" or advancing anyone's career. Speaking for myself, I am backing this solely for the purpose of getting something done that desperately needs to be done. I don't care when -- or even if -- I get the promised rewards, so long as the digital comic itself is done. Anything else is icing on the cake.

I know there are other backers who feel similarly...I just don't know how many of them there are.

I read a comment on another Blog and felt it was a subtle trolling regarding Alt-Hero being a way to milk the community. What disturbed me about the insinuation was the idea that profit is a negative, when in reality profit is a sign to make more or keep going. I hate the way they use language like this. It's very effective rhetoric. I like the idea of delineating profit from spoils to distinguishe a free market from regulatory capture.

I love these moving goal posts. What convinced me to get onboard was twofold. First, the cultural crisis in mainstream comics. Yes, there is an idealogical war in our culture, as Gamergate made clear (my red pill). Stand your ground and fight. This is one such move in the comics world.

Second, Castalia House has proven its ability to put out product reliably and with quality. I've no doubt the comics will be done with the same principles.

Blogger wreckage October 06, 2017 10:16 PM  

It's a statistically verifiable fact that engaged, present biological fathers, especially employed and church-going ones, are far and away the strongest and most consistent preventative/deterrent of sexual abuse.

This guys' cartoons don't explode a myth, they perpetuate one, they don't strengthen the protection of children, they weaken it.

If making children MORE vulnerable to predation is not his goal, he needs to stop and do some serious examination of his assumptions and his activism. Because currently, statistically, he's doing the precise opposite of what he claims.

Blogger wreckage October 06, 2017 10:19 PM

"Alt★Hero is an offensive salient in the cultural war.

It will seize the young of the next generation, who will compare it to gay disabled Muslim transgenders being vomited out of Marvel and DC…

…and they will belong to us.

Vox Day is a cruelty artist of some note, but this in particular is surpassingly sweet to recognize.

I throw money at Vox, etc. al., because just about everything I have invested in I have enjoyed and because I believe in what they are trying to build. Not sure if Castalia is going for the Jim Baen model of "if you like one thing I publish you will probably like most my my lineup by default." I even buy things I do not have time for our never had any interest in our exposure to. I purchased the Walter Ames books by Peter Grant having never read a western and now I will purchase just about anything from him. Vox drew me in early with free "A Throne of Bones" shorts, and I have bought everything else he had written sense.

Most of us who regularly read here understand good products and good customer relations build band loyalty. That is what Vox and Castalia have done.

If this Yungbluth clown could do one eighth as well he would be wildly successful. But he will not. He has no capacity for critical examination of himself or others. So he will continue to be another pathetic, envious loser that whines and moans about how his betters aren't really great.

Blogger Felix Bellator October 07, 2017 2:23 AM  

Based on the progress and vision of Castalia, and Vox's remarks on team building, I am willing to bet that Vox and company have read and embraced Jim Collins' Good to Great.

Blogger P.T. Barnumium October 07, 2017 6:02 AM  

I am glad for Jason and his heroic deeds

If I were to want an estimated delivery date or an FAQ, in my unforgivable ignorance I would have said "Hi Vox, any chance of an estimated timeline or an FAQ"

I can see now that the correct way to achieve this is to incessantly comment in multiple locations with various alts, publicly demonstrate my poor math skills, lie uncontrollably and never actually mention the things I want until the end.

It is definitely a 100% coincidence that the whole situation looks like repeated instances of amygdala tortured sperging, followed by a sad and obvious retcon to imply victory in a sacred moral mission.
