Satire is dead

Reality simply can't be surpassed:
DC Comics announced that Zoe Quinn will team up with artist Tyler Kirkham to write a Batman and Superman spin-off titled The Infected: Deathbringer #1. Quinn’s story will focus on Donna Troy as she becomes infected by The Batman Who Laughs toxin and turns her into the worst version of herself.
Let me guess how the story will go. Donna Troy falsely accuses Batman of sexual assault, so he kills himself. Then Superman falls in love with her and she convinces him to give her his powers. Then he kills himself. The end.

Snicker-snack.

This is clearly some kind of deep state DARPA experiment.
Will reading the resulting comic cause the reader to commit suicide?
or to shoot up a comic store while singing Beatles somgs?

Blogger Dave Dave September 12, 2019 7:33 PM  

She just killed someone and literally everyone hates her. This isn't virtue signalling because nobody sees virtue in her. This is a controlled demolition by those that hate comics.

Blogger Virgil September 12, 2019 7:33 PM  

Then she seduces and abandons Tyler who kills himself.

What is the over under for someone working with Zoe at DC taking an unnatural causes dirt nap?

Blogger Brick Hardslab September 12, 2019 7:41 PM  

Don't worry, the first episode will have them doing the, 'Eiffel Tower' and high fiving each other while they 'peg' Superman.

What you thought it would be somewhat normal?

Blogger LR27 September 12, 2019 7:45 PM  

The diseased sloot that kills people writes a story called the diseased deathbringer. You really can’t make this stuff up.

Much SJW fiction seems to be projective self-referential fantasy. I wonder what the fictional "worst version of herself" will reveal?

Sure it's just a coincidence.

It's better than anything she'll come up with.

Blogger swiftfoxmark2 September 12, 2019 8:45 PM  

No, I think Donna Troy will just go to a nightclub, get drunk, hit on everyone she can, and then complain about everyone hitting on her.

And then the toxin will flush from her body when it realizes how toxic she is.

No one will and they know it.

At this point the big two aren't interested in making sales anymore because they know their corporate overlords have them targeted for reduction the next time the economy retracts.

What's going on is the Left Leaning Death-roll. The editors know they will be unemployable as failures who killed their industry...UNLESS...they can present themselves as martyrs who were attacked by the Misogynistic Man-Babies Who Live in Their Mother's Basements for creating social justice comics.

They'll be heroes then and will sail into their next job.

And like Zoe Quinn, most of them never wanted to work in comics anyway. It was just paycheck to them.

Sorry Tyler, your name's going into the dead pool.

The same people who bought tickets to Ghostbusters 2016 after hearing that angry manchildren were trying to sink it. That's the theory, anyway.

She just killed someone and literally everyone hates her.

You give "everyone" way too much credit for decency. A quick search will turn up numerous articles calling Quinn a feminist hero a couple years ago when she was already *trying* to destroy lives. You really think all those people hate her now just because she succeeded in one?

Blogger tublecane September 12, 2019 9:15 PM  

"the worst version of herself"

Why does this comic book advertisemen-, err, news article use Self Help jargon?

I had to look up what the pretentious Batman Who Laughs referred to, as well as who Donna Troy might be. Apparently, it's just an inversion fantasy. Take a character people know, remove it from its normal ethical constraints, and see what happens. Probably they all just end up acting like the Joker and/or your common Nietzschean anti-hero.

Real diversity is arthropod diversity. Only 2 or 4 legged animals get respect and that's going to change because lung breathers deserve to hear our stories. It's so meat bodied not kill your mates.

Depression Quest, The Infected.

I'm excited for her Burroughs adaptation, Tarzan and the Jowls of Opium. Jane must overcome her fentanyl addiction as Tarzan fights an eating disorder.

Has anyone tried Penicillin on her? Maybe that can stop her from moving on to the next host.

Blogger Max September 12, 2019 10:15 PM  

Hot take: DC needs to kill off their comic production in order to pull some copyright shenanigans which will make them way more money than books ever could. This is suicide, plain and simple.

That theory is plausible

At this pace, it is only a matter of time until she gets her own animated TV show - The Real™ Adventures of Zoe Quinn.

Blogger Paul M September 13, 2019 12:12 AM  

You forgot the bit where she realizes that The Joker is actually really nice, just a little misunderstood, but she's so special and full of such shining inherent overflowing goodness that she can understand him, and falls in love with him and he with her. And then they totally fuck.

Blogger Raker_T September 13, 2019 12:53 AM  

First there was Arkancide, now Zoeincide?
Whatever. While reading that post about California separating, I wanted to find something about leftist motives; so I went and reread parts of SJWs always lie. Man, I must've been up late driving on fumes the first time I read it, because I missed so much. Are the heat, work schedule, and life in general taking the edges off your fight? Go reread the book, for bonus effect, have the theme from good, bad, and ugly playing at the same time. Seriously, this is good stuff. Don't believe me? Just remember the line about telling her she's psycho or ugly. Good stuff.

Blogger Raker_T September 13, 2019 1:00 AM  

Now autoplay is on "Night On Bald Mountain", by Mussorgsky. Major inspirational music. OK, so I'll get called out for being so OT, but I just remembered; you non boomers are jealous you can't claim Niel Young as one of your own.

They already had a story line where the Joker becomes cured or somehow ends up the good guy. Gotham becomes a much nicer, safer place with the reformed Joker leading a sort of social crusade to clean it up, and Batman sulks in the cave as he realizes it was him and his vigilantism that created and drove so many of the city's criminals in the first case. It was him and his crusade against crime that brought about so much pain and destruction. He was the real bad guy all along. It turns out all the city needed was socially conscious activists who worked within the system to turn it all around.

Send that to DC Comics as a proposal. It's really not far from some of the stuff they've published in the past.

I hope your ramping up Arkhavens production que and dialing up to 11. There's "filling a market niche" and then there's "being sucked into and trying to fill up a galaxy sized singularity" and of the two market conditions with Zoe's hiring I'd say your firmly in the second category. Please have an IPO...

@30- I actually like Neil Young songs, but I have to listen past him, as it were, and pretend he isn't singing.

Are you kidding? The Zoe Zombies will always be there for her and Anita. They're like those little nuggets that won't flush.

@34, yeah I was just seeing if I could grate on the whippersnappers' nerves by making them remember his singing. It probably worked, but they won't give me the satisfaction of saying so.
Speaking of Boomer hate, I was reading a post at Russia Insider, and it says to stay focused on the lynchpin of the left; the media. So I was working on text for a sign or meme, and decided to get pragamatic with the Boomer thing. Here's my effort:

It occurs to me that this will probably involve a MAGA cap, an AR-15, and a group of black preschoolers.

Vox ? In your opinion, when did the Lefties figure out that comics are a good way for them to get to the children? I remember, Batman and Superman, having some excellent story lines in the 90s, but I have not followed it much since that time.

Spot. On.

Blogger CarpeOro September 13, 2019 1:56 PM  

Maybe it is actually a corporate plot. Increase the losses at DC so those who don't want to sell or spin it off lose any support. I can think of no better way to tank a company than to hire ZQ. Maybe we can get her to join the Lion's staff in Detroit after she is done with DC...
