Melting the mic

It's more than a little amusing that the SJWs in comics who hate the Alt-Right so much don't even have the courage to actually address the real Alt-Right in their attacks on it. They prefer to go after the likes of Ethan van Sciver and Diversity & Comics and call relative moderates like them "Alt-Right" because they are so afraid of us that they don't even dare to directly engage.
Dusty Good@DangerDusty
News flash for the Alt-Right comix trolls. The industry/hobby/craft doesn't want or need you. You're not welcome here. The cosplay girls won't fuck you, the pros absolutely hate you, your fellow fans despise you. Go ahead and continue to circle jerk each other on KS.

Dusty Good@DangerDusty
Oh we raised $300,000 on KS! We're legit! Nobody worth a shit cares. Even the KKK has financial backing ... in fact I bet that's the driving force behind the crowd funding!

Dusty Good@DangerDusty
Love making the Alt-Right trolls dance. They can't help themselves; they're idiots. They don't realize that the more they respond, the more they retweet and tag, the bigger my reach grows. @EthanVanSciver and @DiversityAndCmx goons are the best PR free can buy!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Dusty Good@DangerDusty
Looks like Audio Henchmen is coming back full time. They may fire me from the site. But I still own the rights to my podcast and I've got a contract. Who wants to hear me melt a mic against the Alt-Right comic fans?

Dusty Good @DangerDusty
A podcast for all those folks in CYBERland feeling FROGgy and anyone who likes to hear me flap my JAWs about all you rule BREAKERS. BEWARE. The ALT-RIGHT need not apply. We plan on practicing freedom of speech to its fullest extent.
These sad little gamma males have absolutely no idea what is going to hit them soon. The bigger his reach grows? He has all of 440 followers on Twitter. And while I'm pleased that Cyberfrog and Jawbreakers have managed to replicate Alt★Hero's crowdfunding success, and in doing so, prove that it was not a fluke, that is literally the first and smallest step that Arkhaven has taken in our combined arms offensive on the SJW-held territory of the comics industry.

We know the pros at Marvel and DC hate us. We don't care. We don't want the fat cosplay girls, we have real models. We know the SJW comics media won't cover us. We don't need the coverage. We know SJWs in the mainstream media will write hit pieces about us. We don't talk to them. We know Disney and Warner Bros won't work with us. We don't want to work with them. We're not here to join an SJW-infested industry that is dying by more than 10 percent every year, we're here to replace it with something new, better, and more entertaining.

Two weeks ago I signed an agreement with a movie producer. We've since had a number of meetings with various organizations and I can state with some confidence that we will be skipping the whole "option" phase and go directly to making the movies and/or television shows ourselves in partnership with people who know what they are doing. Some of these scenarios involve crowdfunding and backer participation, others do not. We are also discussing the creation of a major new comics imprint with one or two partners and are in the process of completing Chuck Dixon's Avalon #1, after which we will launch our comic store campaign with the assistance of the VFM and the Dark Legion.

There is more, of course, but that will do for now. And now, for the punchline. To absolutely no one's surprise, it took all of one week for Brave Sir Dusty to bravely sacrifice his principles, take his nuts off the chopping block, and beg for his job back.
Dusty Good@DangerDusty
I'm better than this and bigger than this, so I apologise to @EthanVanSciver  and @DiversityAndCmx  for my childish and unprofessional comments and any shade that was thrown on @ComicCrusaders  because of my social media posts.

Dusty Good@Dusty Good
I have requested my previous position back with @ComicCrusaders and if accepted will make sure that an incident like this never happens again.

After all, apologising is an admission of guilt to these people.

Although, if these simpletons could read a sales graph, Arkhaven and the others wouldn't have the opportunity they do.

Now that Alt-Hero has come out, the new goalpost is that it's a complete flop. Which, as you point out, would be immediately debunked if they just wandered over to Amazon.

It's a show of support for Ethan. Notice that the second crowdfunding campaign for the D&C guy hasn't gone anywhere nearly as well as the first one. At the end of the day, you have to deliver something that people want. That's why we haven't done another Alt-Hero campaign and we will not until we've delivered at least half of the content promised.

That doesn't mean we won't support campaigns for other comics that we'll be publishing. But we're being very selective about who we support. We have no interest in publishing comics like Jawbreakers or Iron Sights, and the D&C guy has no interest in working with us either. They want to put all their emphasis on art and action, whereas we prioritize story and characters.

We'll see which approach is more effective. They both might work, for all I know.

Blogger Franz Lyonheart July 08, 2018 7:06 AM  

Apologising is an admission of guilt. By definition. Not just "to these people", but in general.

Maybe you meant to say, Apologising is a sign of weakness to these people, which in reality it isn't necessarily at all.

But be that as it may, the literal way you phrased it makes no sense.

I've been reluctant to be critical of ALT-HERO for a number of reasons. And considering your fan base, the story might be different, success-wise.

But I suspect the art/action will pay out bigger than story/character, at least in the short term. (IF EVS is even considered a "big artist" right now, I don't know. I stopped buying years ago.)

But long term? I think you'll be fine if you can get some compelling things going. And getting Chuck Dixon on board was genius because that's where he shines.

No one wrote Gotham City's characters like Chuck. He made things ring true with the Batman supporting cast like no other.

Like Chris Claremont, some of his best writing were issues where not much action happened at all. But you didn't care.

That is the position of Stan Lee, Marvel, DC, and pretty much everyone else who tells me that I don't know what I am doing.

No doubt everyone is laughing at the humiliating failure.

Different companies with different approaches is the sign of a healthy market. That’s how Marvel and DC used to operate. The SJW spews aggressive defiance but misses the point. Ze seems to think that these projects are trying to join zir club when they’re actually going to replace it.

Vox, I wasn't saying you SHOULD go for the short-term success. I do not think it would play to your company's strengths.

DC in the 2000s would get "Big Artists" to do a book for a short term (EG: Jim Lee on BATMAN: HUSH, the SUPERMAN run and the craptacular ALL STAR BATMAN) and it would sell big for a little while then drop back down.

It got wearying because it was disruptive to the longer story arcs. And the stories usually didn't hold up especially well either.

Playing the long game is way smarter in the long run. It annoys the die-hard fans that are your bread and butter less.

They want to put all their emphasis on art and action, whereas we prioritize story and characters.

We'll see which approach is more effective. They both might work, for all I know.


Both EVS and D&C have extended their campaigns beyond 30 days. EVS was wise in that he built up a youtube subscriber base of over 60k before he ever launched his crowdfunder. The vast majority of those subs are comics fans/buyers; they subscribed to Ethan's channels to hear him talk about comics and watch him draw and critique comics. He's a known quantity in the comics world and he was willing to go on youtube for hours a day and cater to his fans both before and during the campaign. He's also signing each comic and ashcan.

Even with over 60k subscribers on youtube EVS didn't know what to expect; he started his crowdfunder with a goal of just $8,000. He now has over 6800 backers which is still only 10% of his youtube subscriber base.

Kudos to Ethan, but again, he's a known comics pro that worked at the highest levels in the industry; he's continuing with a known product that was published before in the 90's, and he's personalizing the product for the backers.

Alt★Hero on the other hand, was an unknown commodity directed by a group that had no background in comics (until Dixon got involved) and no youtube channel with 60k+ subscribers primarily interested in comics. For my money, the Alt★Hero FreeStartr is still the most impressive comics crowdfunder in the amount of money that was raised in 30 days (or was it 31 days?). The backers, the majority likely not comics fans, took a chance and ponied up almost 1/4 of million dollars because they believed in the campaign and what it stood for.

I hope the art keeps improving. Comics are primarily a visual medium. Unless you're skipping the comics and moving straight to movies and TV. Once that happens the comics usually go downhill.

Blogger VD July 08, 2018 11:08 AM  

Both EVS and D&C have extended their campaigns beyond 30 days.

They are approaching this in an entirely different way than I am. I'm seeking to build infrastructure; that's why we started with Infogalactic and not something more like Gab.

In both cases, you can see that the short-term glossy approach is considerably more effective at whipping up excitement, attention, and financial support. Just look at how well Milo's Dangerous did compared to Castalia House's most successful book.

On the other hand, Castalia House is still going strong while Dangerous Books is already defunct. I expect that the slow-and-steady approach will prove to be the correct one in the long term, but only time will tell. Ethan, I anticipate, will do very well because his goals are limited and he isn't interested in trying to do everything himself. I don't expect the D&C guy to be successful because he observably has no ability to work with people on either side of the political spectrum.

It will. Doing the comics has not altered the quality of our books, has it? I believe in always prioritizing the core, which is the exact opposite of the usual SJW strategy. The people with whom I'm talking understand that I will not prioritize the peripheries at the expense of the core. Some of them have even expressed an appreciation for that.

Blogger wreckage July 08, 2018 11:37 AM  

Going for story and character has some obvious strengths. The big one is it's better suited to adaptation. Stories and characters can be moved to another medium without loss, art can't (well, good design can.) Stories focused on character and story can also be adapted with a lower budget, spectacle you either match the expectation or you fail. Again, this allows for incremental advance. Grinding, methodical.

Expected, perhaps, from an admirer of the Roman infantry.

I was an avid reader of comic books when I was a boy and it gave me untold hours of pleasure to read the stories and appreciate the artwork.

What we seem to be watching here is the SJW goons insisting that they own the printing press. Nothing can be printed without their approval and certainly should not!

And then I think back to the times in history when the same mentality tried to take over the printed word. The first (several) attempts to print the New Testament resulted in people being put to death and the texts destroyed.

"Seditious" publications have been confiscated and burned by every tyrant from King of England to Adolph to Stalin to Mao.

Until fairly recently the Roman Catholic church maintained their own Civil List of banned books and publications, many of which were quite old....such as Ulysses. It did not work to suppress Luther or Calvin or Knox or Galileo or Free Masonry, but somehow it was going to work in the modern era.

Now they want to stamp out comic books that they "disapprove of" because they do not fit the Liberal Agenda? I am old enough to remember when some of the more reactionary teachers hated ALL comic books. I had one confiscated in the First Grade and I remember it well. It was a comic book of The Rifleman tv series. She never gave it back. This was back in the 1950s, when we had a more "normal" society. Ha Ha. (I never took another comic book to school.)

When I was a professor at Belmont University, I had a serious problem with a certain member of the faculty that was confiscating books I had shared with my students as part of my teaching in economics. He decided they should not have such books because the author was a homosexual or he disagreed with some other aspect of the author's life. We almost came to blows over my private property. Even if he does not believe in academic freedom, he should manage to respect private property.

What I find amazing is that the freestartr campaign for Alt★Hero ($235,900) spawned full publishing imprints with Arkhaven and Dark Legion. Will these other crowd funding projects go that route, or are they merely pre-orders for the comics listed? The ROI for Alt★Hero has been phenomenal, especially with the "practice run" series Right-Ho Jeeves.

Blogger Michael Maier July 08, 2018 1:03 PM  

Yeah,a good number of these crowd funded campaigns look like scams. The other side is, I think some creators get lazy when the money's already in their bank and they cannot technically be held accountable for not producing.

Blogger Wuzzums Fuzzums July 08, 2018 1:28 PM  

Art/story is not a zero sum game however if anyone ever wonders which should be prioritized just look at the Attack on Titan manga:
- it has a cult following
- a large fanbase
- tons of cosplayers
- a tv-show popular across continents
- 2 live action movies
- 2 extremely popular fanmade games
- 1 triple A game
- it has porn parodies
- it's been used in commercials by Subaru to sell cars
- it's still ongoing

All of that with some of the worst art I have seen... ever. And remember: Marvel has always had access to the creme de la creme of illustrators but their comics still aren't selling.

Now I'm thinking that maybe the art is a fake barrier erected in order to scare off the competition.
"You can't make comics! You don't know how to draw!" -> Attack on Titan.
"You can't publish comics! You don't even know who Diamond is!" -> Arkhaven.
"You can't write a best selling novel in english! English is not even your first language!" -> Ayn Rand.
"You can't create an OS! You don't even have a computer science degree!" -> Steve Jobs.
"You can't become God Emperor of All Mankind! You don't know how to politics properly!" -> Trump.

The examples are plenty. What philosophy course din Molyneux take? What art degree did Scott Adams pursue? What journalism school did Cernovich go to?

Moose being EVS' friend and his first choice for Cyberfrog but unfortunately decided to backstab EVS and attack him publicly. EVS retaliated saying something like "he thinks that siding with the SJW's will bring him work but it's the opposite".

So Moose getting work from Vox, someone who's more right-wing than EVS, would not only be ironic but a great chance for another funny video laughing at Moose.

I get the feeling the referral was well before Ethan's public falling out with Moose. To top it off, the Cyberfrog backers convinced Ethan to give the new colorist a $10k bonus if the campaign reached $250k. This bonus was over and above the 2x Marvel/DC page rate EVS claims he is already paying.

Vox, I'm curious, are there any tax issues on these crowd funding campaigns? Is everyone considered a contractor? etc

"This trilogy will be known, collectively, as SHUT THE $%&# UP. I've already written most of BACKSTORY. If those with whom I've shared it are to be believed, it's hilarious. But it's too soon for that."

Sounds deliciously cruel.

I am so sick of people who are forever going on and on about "backstory"... what's his backstory? Hey, whatever part of a character's past is important WILL BE IN THE STORY.

Backstory = prequels. And prequels cannot help but suck, because you know exactly where they end up.

If you can shut down the Backstory Brigade, that will be wonderful.
