Coming out strong

“If you’re looking at the expansion of the market, we keep on seeing new companies being introduced every day.  They seem to be coming out with a much stronger amount of content, right coming out of the gate. It’s not a slow buildup, these guys are coming out on the ground running.”
- DC Comics Publisher Dan DiDio

This is what he's talking about.


If you haven't caught the Arkstream yet, you may want to check it out to see what's coming next. And don't miss our latest releases: Alt-Hero #3 from Arkhaven and Rebel Dead Revenge #3 from Dark Legion.

Good times.

Gratification, thy name is Arkhaven!

Blogger thegreatweiszguy August 07, 2018 1:16 PM  

Are Arkhaven #2 and #3 going to be released in print? I have to have the matching collection for my bookshelf!

Ain't that the truth

DiDio is concerned about oversaturation in the direct market. Just wait until it hits him in the distribution channel.

Best money I ever spent backing a project. This is how you win.

Congrats, hopefully Muslim Miss Marvel won't be at the top of the list ever again after the first issue.

Yeah it is disappointing to see that taking the number one spot with an impressive 745 views and 4 1/2 star rating. There is still a long way to go before Alt-Hero sees those numbers. Still, a lot of those reviews are likely virtue signalers displaying how open and approving they are. A nice pat on the back.

In light of the recent news I have to ask the question, is this not being at risk of being censored (as in deplatforming, banning all this because it is considered "hate speech", etc). If so what is the plan?

Blogger Greg Hunt August 07, 2018 2:38 PM  

Neon Revolt is a fan and was happy about the mention.

I'm finding more options in Red Pill discourse recently. The tide has changed.

Are Arkhaven #2 and #3 going to be released in print?

#2 is already in print. Go to the Arkhaven Comics store on the upper left sidebar. #3 will be there very soon.

Number one, that's our problem. Number two, we wouldn't tell everyone on the Internet anyhow.

Making comics great again! Haven’t read comics in years and bought the whole series to see what it’s all about and I’m freakin hooked. Got alt hero 2, rebel dead revenge, Chicago typewriter and quantum Mortis coming in the mail today, more excited than a kid on Christmas morning haha. Can’t wait to get alt hero #3!

Blogger Matt Sellitto August 07, 2018 3:13 PM  

Congrats Vox.

Happy to be a backing it and doing my part to change things even in a small way.

Blogger Dave August 07, 2018 3:14 PM  

Anyone familiar with Amazon's update process re following an author? I followed Chuck Dixon and recently Amazon sent me an Update email telling me Chuck had released Robyn Hood #5 & #6. I don't see any update for CDA#1 in his follow history.

I checked Vox"s follow history and there's updates for both AH#1 & #2 but not yet AH#3 (too soon?)

Question: does the author generate the update or does Amazon? Chuck may have a number of followers that aren't Alt Hero backers and aren't aware of Avalon. Those are potential customers that already follow Chuck. Heck, even being a backer myself, I'd like to see Amazon Updates. What gives?

Blogger MendoScot August 07, 2018 3:56 PM  

Let the wailing commence!

Quietly of course, so we don't attract attention.

Blogger White Knight Leo #0368 August 07, 2018 4:06 PM  

I'm not a huge fan of the long wait between relatively short editions of Alt*Hero - that's how comic books are, and why Alt*Hero is the first non-manga comic I've bought since the 90s - but I'm still glad I backed the project.

Blogger MJ Meyers August 07, 2018 4:30 PM  

Congrats!

I hope Arkhaven releases more graphic novels in various genres. TV and movies are generally so revolting to me due to the heavy-handed cultural Marxism (if it's preaching any values) or nihilism (more common) in its place, I find reading these comics to be a refreshing change of pace, considering how few works of quality visual stimulation exist for a right-leaning audience.

I hope this expands well beyond Alt-Hero and spawns a new genre of entertainment for us all to enjoy with quality story-telling and characters in multiple genres of various tastes.

Just wait a year, then buy twelve issues all at once.

Blogger IAM Spartacus August 07, 2018 4:55 PM  

No disrespect intended but Avalon was better than Alt-Hero #1. At least from a quality stand point. However I'm guessing people are seeing AH3 or AH2 and wanting to go back and get one.

Blogger Jon D. August 07, 2018 5:18 PM  

Crushing it!

Reeees audible from space intensify

Blogger Uncle John's Band August 07, 2018 5:36 PM  

Nothing like hitting the ground running. For what its worth, the SJW argument for the "importance" of Ms. Muslim despite her dismal sales was that her trades sold unusually well, and this didn't show in the comichron numbers. While it is true that they always lie, if there is any truth to the claim at all, it would account for the showing by a new number 1. It also suggests that there is a different audience for Ms. Muslim that does not extent to other converged Marvel titles.

I'm a backer, but I've been buying issues from the Castalia store, since that is the recommended place. Getting the gold labels is the cover story, but you can put me down among those who already got their money's worth when the first issue rolled out. Seeing that starting point, and understanding the slope of the UHIQ learning curve, the home run was obvious. I'll buy as well as back as long as they keep coming out - it's a good, inexpensive way to keep supporting a great project.

Blogger The Observer August 07, 2018 5:43 PM  

How is this possible? I was informed by MULTIPLE sources that since Arkhaven doesn't have any physical copies in comics stores yet, it was a complete joke and failure! Woe! Woe!

Seriously, though, I'm already setting aside a portion of my paycheque for Q.

That requires waiting a year - what I actually want is for VD and his team to somehow produce the comics faster.

I went through this same problem when I made the mistake of reading the first volume of 'Goblin Slayer', and "FASTER!" is the only solution that suits me.

Blogger Brick Hardslab August 07, 2018 8:42 PM  

How much of Ms Marvel selling is due to Marvel forcing comic stores to 'bundle' it with other books. I can't see how comic buyers are going out of their way to find a story about a girl running a Hitler youth pre-crime prison.

Blogger tuberman August 07, 2018 8:50 PM  

Alt-Hero #3 now is easily my favorite (read yesterday), but all three are very good. Fantastic start.

Going to have to pick up these three in print soon, and Avalon #1 also.

Blogger James Dixon August 07, 2018 9:26 PM  

> Coming out strong

Great. Now I'll have Brenda Lee and Golden Earring going through my head all night. :)

Oh well, it's a small price to pay for Arkhaven getting recognition.

Blogger Bee August 07, 2018 10:00 PM  

Does this mean Alt Hero #3 has already gone out to backers?

I'm a digital backer and haven't seen a copy in my inbox...

Yes. Try searching your inbox for Castalia House if you're using gmail. Might want to setup an email filter for it.

Thanks - I've tried that (and checked the trash, which would be the logical point of failure if I somehow deleted it). But no issue #3.

Vox (or anyone else who knows): Do I email Vox directly to check on this, or is there an arkhaven link for reporting any missing issues that I've overlooked?










Blogger wreckage August 08, 2018 3:20 AM  

They fired writers, artists, letterers and colourists, who all knew each other, all for being wrongthinkers.

What did they THINK was going to happen?

Blogger Blaidd August 08, 2018 7:06 AM  

Vox will tell you there's nothing he can do on his end. Check spam and promotions if you have such a folder.

Blogger Michael Maier August 08, 2018 7:16 AM  

Thanks a heap, Vox... now I'm having flashbacks to how much MS. MARVEL sucks!

Yes, I read it for the HUGO voting... yes, it is awful in every damned way.

It's still hard to believe Marvel has fallen so far.

Blogger Dave August 08, 2018 7:29 AM  

@34 Bee this is Vox's standard response; also Lance mentioned a "promotions" folder (I dunno is this same as social?)

VD wrote:This "Hardcover" backer wished that he was receiving his digital copies.

Check your spam and check your social folder. EVERY backer was sent an email. We regret that we cannot guarantee their arrival, but we can't do any more than send them.


Lance E wrote:Hardcover backer here - my digital copies are coming in, but since I use Gmail (yeah, yeah) it always gets punted into the "promotions" folder/label. This has happened with all four digitals so far.

So if you use Gmail, and think you aren't getting them, don't just check spam, also check "promotions".

Blogger xavier August 08, 2018 7:53 AM  

Vox,

Congrats on your success. I wish you more and great prosperity.
Forgive my lack of knowledge, are the Arkhaven comics available in digital format? If so is it a kindle, epub or another type? I'm very interested in buying the issues.

Again congrats on your success

Blogger VD August 08, 2018 7:55 AM  

Here is the obvious problem. You're complaining that you didn't get an email. So, you send me an email, which the vast majority of the time is from the same email address to which we already sent you an email. We send you another email.

A few days later, you let us know that you didn't receive the email. Again.

Blogger VD August 08, 2018 7:56 AM

Yes. They are available in Kindle format on Amazon.

We need to get those review numbers up! Alt-Hero 2 is doing well with over 200 reviews, but the rest are in double digits while Ms Marvel is getting close to 1000!
If you have read the comic, LEAVE A REVIEW!

Blogger Bee August 08, 2018 9:00 PM  

Castalia House quickly dealt with my missing issue problem; I now have alt-hero #3. Looks good!

Thanks Vox!
