Alt★Hero: Q 2.1 is go!

Arkhaven Comics is pleased to announce that the Alt★Hero: Q 2.1 campaign is now live.

Alt★Hero: Q is an incendiary 150-page graphic novel in six parts that explores the mysterious phenomenon of QAnon and the war on global evil. The story is written by the legendary Chuck Dixon, who is backed by a first-rate professional art-and-production team.

Arkhaven has assembled a first-rate production team to create the Alt★Hero: Q graphic novel, which illustrates the incredible QAnon phenomenon that is sweeping the planet. Set in the world of Alt★Hero, Alt★Hero: Q is an astonishing action tale of unflinching heroes taking down corruption and evil on a global scale.

The Alt★Hero: Q Team

WRITER: The Legend Chuck Dixon
ILLUSTRATOR: Hélix Haze
COLORIST: Arklight Studios
PRODUCTION: Arkhaven Comics

If you missed the successful, but short-lived Alt★Hero: Q 2.0 campaign, you can now take part in its successor on the Arkhaven Comics site. All of the rewards are priced at the same levels as before, but if you wish to back at one of the higher levels that are not offered as part of the 2.1 campaign, please contact us via email.

Please note that some backers are likely to have trouble with their credit cards being accepted; if the system rejects your card, please contact your bank for details, arrange matters with them, then try again later. Given that this is not an American site, it's possible that the purchase will trigger flags that you don't realize are attached to your account. Please don't ask us about this, as we can already see failed attempts in the system and there is literally nothing we can do about them from this end. Once the campaign is over, we will get in contact with everyone to see what we can do to provide for those who are unable to get their cards working with the current system.

The crowdfunding engine we are presently using is far from optimal, but it is functional. You will have to enter the indicated amount manually as clicking on the rewards shown on the sidebar will not do anything. Despite the IGG-imposed complications, we never stopped moving forward on it, as this image from Issue #1 will serve to demonstrate.

I should just go work for Vox, Inc. at this point. You could just pay me in comic books, because clearly I have a problem. Here’s to hoping in the apocalypse my Arkhaven comic collection is as valuable as my ammo and liquor stash.

Great job Vox and Team! Moving forward no matter the obstacles the PC crowd throws in the way.

Can't, say, a pre-paid gift card from Visa or MasterCard work? Some banks won't budge when it comes to out-of-country purchases, because of the lovely amounts of fraud that have been going around.

Blogger Subversive Saint December 03, 2018 12:16 PM  

Had to confirm my purchase through my bank. Not sure if it will be approved yet.

It's interesting that the free traders never seem to take the many restrictions on international payments and shipping into account.

Now what makes me think that matter is being worked on as we speak? I assume you'll make it available to other approved campaigns once it's fully ready?

The art and the story look top notch...but I am also enjoying the fact that the comic is launching despite the many hurdles thrown at it. This comic is immune to DeathRays!

Even if Q in real life turns out to be just entertainment, there's some great details to mine from it. Once the current story arc ends, I'd love to see a new story arc named "ALL FOR A LARP!"

Blogger OneWingedShark December 03, 2018 12:31 PM  

Vox, am I reading this right? That this reward has 36 comics, 6 each of No 1 to No 6?
GOLD LOGO EDITIONS: Six gold logo editions of Issues #1-#6 to be delivered in a single shipment when Issue #6 has been completed. The backer will also receive the six digital editions.
If so, that's a steal of a deal, and I know what I'm getting family for Christmas gifts!

Free traders seldom seem to be able to take anything into account expect their preconceived talking points.

Glenn Beck was waxing indignant over Trump's tariffs on Chinese imports over the weekend. He completely failed to understand what they're designed to do, which is a) induce enough pain to get manufacturing to move back to the US, and b) serve as a tool to force the Chinese to negotiate in good faith on a new trade deal.

Not sure if it will affect this crowdfund setup, but I got charged a foreign transaction fee on the Q 2.0 campaign. No biggie, but didn't realize it would happen.

Something for people to watch out for. If you're using a credit card to back, double check if it charges those or not.

Almost all credit cards that allow foreign transactions do that now. If you can find one that doesn't make sure you keep it for just such uses.

No, obviously not.

Blogger Noah B The Savage Gardener December 03, 2018 12:41 PM  

Restrictions on bank transactions are working as intended, which is to keep your money in the bank. It's a great system for the banks - if you deposit with them, you're an unsecured creditor. If you keep your cash, supposedly your own money, the government can take it all away and you have little recourse available.

I thought it was "too good to be true" -- always best to ask in that case -- thank you for the clarification.

Wow. Y'all have started your own crowdfunding system? Any hopes to expand and fill the void left by FreeStartr's collapse?

Blogger VD December 03, 2018 1:52 PM  

Y'all have started your own crowdfunding system?

Yes.

Any hopes to expand and fill the void left by FreeStartr's collapse?

No, it's for our own use. We're not looking to get into the business.

Blogger James Dixon December 03, 2018 2:03 PM

That's a shame, though I can't blame you. Will you make the improved engine available for others to use?

Blogger VD December 03, 2018 2:55 PM  

Will you make the improved engine available for others to use?

Only if we are publishing them. Our bandwidth is already being stretched considerably. We don't have the wherewithal to oversee and run a completely different business, especially such a low margin one.

Blogger JimR December 03, 2018 2:59 PM  

Clarification request, if we already backed 2.0, this is the same content? just another campaign?
Or am I misunderstanding something? Thanks.

Blogger VD December 03, 2018 3:01 PM

Same content, it's the continuation of the same campaign. If you already backed 2.0, then there is no need to back this one.

Blogger JimR December 03, 2018 3:02 PM  

Thanks for the clarification.

Would be a nice keepsake if you can coordinate release to the day Flynn is exonerated or something; maybe when Clinton gets hung for treason.

But alas, I could only imagine the logistical complications for planning a media tie-in with federal prosecutions and sentencing.

Hmmm...Treasury Department Special Response Team?

Congratulations and confusion to the Enemy.

FYI, got this email today from Indiegogo:
"We'd like to improve the Indiegogo experience and need your help. By completing this short, 60-second survey about your contribution to ALT-HERO:Q, you can help make Indiegogo a better place for everyone."

Needless to say, I left them a blistering review.
