Mailvox: they don't forget

A military wife would like the backers of the Will Caligan's Comic campaign to know that your efforts have been noticed and are deeply appreciated by the military community:
My husband recently retired from 20 years mixed service Airborne and National Guard. His uncle is a Desert Storm vet.  My dad was in Vietnam.  Our collective family military histories go to the Revolution.

What you are doing for Caligan means the world to us.  You are not just offering brother Christians and vets support.  You are offering spouses and families support and encouragement.

I've been sharing the campaign on Facebook with my vet and spouse friends.  I'm not sure who has contributed, if anyone.  But we don't forget these things.
The campaign has reached 573 609 backers and $40k $42.3k. It will end on Tuesday (Alt-Hero backers will remember that 1 day left means the NEXT day is the final day.) Please continue to spread the word.

In case you need any reminder of what we're up against in the long term, this should prove to be a useful reminder. Nice hat, right? Note that the editor of that particular series is the new Marvel editor-in-chief. Which suggests that as bad as it has been, the convergence at Marvel is only going to get worse now that they are shutting down some of their most converged comics due to poor sales.

A sensible individual might conclude that means that the executives there have learned that convergence doesn't sell. But those who understand that SJWs always double down will know it means that they're simply going to transfer the convergence to the better-selling series.

It's been a long time since I've been into Marvel. Last time of any consistent purchasing was the early nineties. From the late seventies to early nineties, I was dialed into Marvel's aesthetic. What I am seeing from SJW Marvel, via the Instagram pic and other items I've observed in the last several months, is completely unrecognizable.

Lol at the tw@ hat...

I can just see the SJW thinking, "that'll show 'em!" as sales/ratings continue to decline.

Wow! the Arklight Studios team did an awesome job on the Alt★Hero cover.

I remember how the Runaways was a breakout title like 10 years ago or more. But up until that promo ad I had no idea their parents are all FBI agents.

I find it interesting I forgot there was the "Logan" movie which I didn't see, but managed to show they are going that way too. I suspect the infinity wars was outlined long ago so probably won't be badly infected.

But as to the comics, SJWs always vandalize the true, good, and beautiful. They are demonic in that way - SJWs do what their daddy, the father of lies tell them. Why the pounds, tattoos, and blue hair under the pussy hats?
So we get Thorina, and although I wasn't so deep into comics, there were some great and epic stories long ago I read from the Thor series. Thorina is boring. Vegans slay no dragons.
Great stories and epic come from great conflicts. But SJWs are petty in every way. There can be no great seductive serpents, mega-monsters, or even a threat of destruction from nature that requires anything interesting to defeat, if there is actual victory at the end and not a group hug.

I think the threat from Alt*Hero and the other comics is greater than Marvel and DC even know, much like Trump v.s. the 16 dwarves, and in the same way.

I expect more service people will buy comics for their children in the future, and also more Southerners Rebel is still a major (in their face) Icon for me.

And this is how an army is built, by finding the grateful betas, deltas and even the occasional omega and fashioning them by the dint of their loyalty into a terrible spearhead.

Like someone else mentioned in a previous thread, I have no doubt that Will Caligan will now very well follow the Dark Lord to the gates of hell and beyond.

A brother was set on by evil ones and knocked down. We extend a hand to help him stand up, a canteen, and have his back to take the fight to evil. This is the cooperation and support that Western men do - we remember who we are, first, and do our duty to God and our fellow men.

O/T Pretty concise speech on the left's plans to rule regardless of any elections...https://www.theburningplatform.com/2018/01/27/this-civil-war-my-south-carolina-tea-party-convention-speech/#comment-1580191

Our local comic book store just closed. My 9 year old daughter bought only the old style archies, with a few other things here and there. I bought a few posters by artists from the 80's - for the classroom. There was no interest in any of the comic books on the rack. Jim Shooter, for all of his quirks, knew that creative talent and good stories equalled good sales. I'll be checking the new line for comics for my daughter for sure.

Some seriously blatant symbolism going on in that pic.

Surprised none of them are doing the "one-eye" sign. Who are the red-robed figures behind them, with their hands on them? Their programmers and handlers?

Runaways (Infogalactic).
Their parents are mad scientists, alien invaders, warlocks and witches, and twisted mutants worshiping a human-sacrifice loving god.

Fruit don't fall far from the tree.

I can see how someone not familiar with the book would see a Trump-era pussyhat, but Mollie had a knit cap that looked like that since issue 1 of the comic.

But then again, she was white . . .

Runaways #6 from the original run's cover. They clearly decided to make it part of a "statement". We're 15 months from the 2016 election, so the anti-Trump media should start rolling in.

Thank you too.

Another reason not to watch Hulu? What will I ever do?

Blogger Starboard January 27, 2018 2:02 PM  

On topic- I upped my backing for the campaign. Looking forward to upping again for book three. For not being into comic books, you sure are producing a lot of them. For not being into comics, I sure am buying a lot of them. This must be what new markets look like.

Off topic- the audiobook for LawDog is hilarious. I caught myself laughing out loud on the treadmill. What a great way to ignore the miles passing under my feet.

That’d be sweet.

It's one thing when people say, "I support the troops" and "Thank you for your service".... it's all lip-service.

Coming across with $$$, or other acts of substance... that means the world to us. Especially those who have deployed into war zones.

Interesting how the two blacks are in white-face
