Do these stream live on the YouTube channel or somewhere else?

Blogger VD August 27, 2018 6:34 PM  

On the YouTube channel.

Blogger InformationMerchant August 27, 2018 7:17 PM  

This is nice timing.

Blogger Daniele Grech Pereira August 27, 2018 7:40 PM  

Comics is back.

Blogger Bobiojimbo August 27, 2018 7:41 PM  

Backed. Looking forward to that omnibus.

Blogger Greg Hunt August 27, 2018 7:41 PM  

The "Issues 1-6: Gold Logo" option appears to be for Alt*Hero rather than Alt*Hero:Q. Is this correct?

Blogger Bill August 27, 2018 7:43 PM  

What happened with FreeStartr? I thought that was resolved?

Blogger VD August 27, 2018 7:44 PM  

Not even a little bit.

Blogger VD August 27, 2018 7:44 PM  

What happened with FreeStartr? I thought that was resolved?

I don't know. It wasn't.

Blogger Bill August 27, 2018 8:01 PM  

So PayPal and Stripe are really going after us. Gotta encourage the smart guys to read Cryptonomicon, we're gonna need our own bank.

Blogger Jay August 27, 2018 8:01 PM  

Just backed this at the gold logo edition level. I backed the original Alt-Hero campaign at the basic level and the support for that blew my mind. Just the symbolic significance of that campaign has the sjw squad freaking out. Back this campaign people! You will be striking a direct blow to the heart of the evil media machine that has ruled the hearts and minds of Americans for too long. If politics is downstream from the culture, this is where the culture begins! Take back the night, as they (& Murdoch Murdoch) say

Blogger Cetera August 27, 2018 8:08 PM  

These just can't come out fast enough. Damn you, VD! You're taking all my money! I'm buying comic books now! Lots and lots of comic books!

Blogger electricsheeple August 27, 2018 8:18 PM  

Just watched the Darkstream. The art is outstanding! Anyone who hasn't watched it, you gotta see the L.A. night sky. Helluv-an artist - colorist team!

Blogger Dave August 27, 2018 8:19 PM  

The campaign is off to a great start; already reached over 8% of the goal. But that's just the beginning, I'm sure.

Vox, please conduct a couple of livestreams with The Legend Chuck Dixon as the campaign progresses. Love to hear his thoughts on the scripts.

Blogger CoolHand August 27, 2018 8:30 PM  

Over 9% now.

I'm in for the Gold Logos and the TPB.

Hope Indiegogo is ready for the onslaught of REEEEs that are going to appear shortly.

I'm sure you've already got backup plans in place should they fold, but it would be nice if the platform would shrug off the SJW attack for a change.

I'm not holding my breath though.

Hope it all goes smoothly for you Vox, you guys are kicking ass on so many fronts that I can scarcely believe it.

Blogger electricsheeple August 27, 2018 8:30 PM  

It sucks Freestartr is down as we nee our own institutions. But color me optimistic. Indie GoGo is hot right now with #ComicsGate. The Dread Ilk will push this up the Indie Gogo charts and Arkhaven will find an even wider audience.

Blogger The Observer August 27, 2018 8:34 PM  

I'll be getting the omnibus once I'm off work.

Didn't have much time to get money together - the original campaign had about half a year since Dynamique's appearance on the blog and it actually launching - but I'll give as much as my finances allow.

Good luck! We'll be tracking the total on the A-H discord server; hope to recreate the excitement from last time.

Blogger David The Good August 27, 2018 9:03 PM  

Backed it.

And a great writer with great art? Not tired of winning.

Blogger tuberman August 27, 2018 9:03 PM  

I've read over a dozen of Chuck Dixon's novels and every one was extremely enjoyable, so if he's enthusiastic about this, it will be great.

Blogger lubertdas August 27, 2018 9:05 PM  

I'm in and paid for! Can't wait to read it!

Blogger Salt August 27, 2018 9:05 PM  


Blogger Avalanche August 27, 2018 9:11 PM  

Backer no. 99! YAY! Wow, I thought the B&W art for "armed guard stands watch..." frame on the Arkstream was brilliant! It's even BETTER in color!

Blogger PragmaticTroll August 27, 2018 9:17 PM  

I have finally assuaged the guilt I feel for not backing AH!

Blogger Jail Cussox August 27, 2018 9:18 PM  

I was happy with the first run of Alt so I will definitely consider another purchase!

Smart timing with the Q Train. Brilliant. Please please please Q link to the Indigogo.

Blogger Doc August 27, 2018 9:27 PM  

Backed. Looks great. Very cool idea.

Any new info on Rebel statues from AH Campaign?

Blogger Silent Draco August 27, 2018 9:36 PM  

Backed. Very nice retro feel, like a '50s-'60s spy and thriller movie. The artwork samples for villains and heroes look very good, with attention to fine details. Great trailer that grabs your attention.

Is it possible, even remotely possible, to become so satisfied that you tire of winning? Naaaaaah ....

Also just purchased paper AH 1-3, QM 1-2, RDR, RHJ 1-2, Chicago Typewriter, Avalon 1, and EConcomics.
Been meaning to for a bit. Remedied.

Blogger Unknown August 27, 2018 10:04 PM  

Backed. Haven’t read a non-Arkhaven comic in five years, glad for more to add to my collection.

Blogger Silent Draco August 27, 2018 10:24 PM  

One thought occurs after watching the Q Stream, er, Darkstream. Is there interest in a Q Girl T-shirt, like the famed Bond Girls? Equip here with something tasteful, like a fine carbine or set of pistols. Perfect for the ladies in your life, or for the woman with excellent taste. It's likely to cause spontaneous combustion from over-driven REEEflex.

This looks more like using crew-served weapons at DC/Marvel's better products of the past, not the best they're doing now. Bane would be a challenge; the reboots for current year are more like a curb-stomping.

Blogger Silly but True August 27, 2018 10:34 PM  

Just backed. This art is beautiful. The concept is right: this is the turf that Chuck Dixon excels at.

What you’re proving is that anyone who likes quality comics _shoud_ like Arkhaven’s releases.

Christ VD, a year ago you knew nothing about comics industry and you’ve given us this great stuff.

How about returning to your muse: Warmouse 2018. A dual 30-button gaming controller and 0.40 caliber personal defense weapon. For when your Madden 19 opponent starts running The Last Boy Scout playbook to get his player in the end zone.

Backer #158 and it's already 25% there

This is the first time I've paid money for a comic book. Can't wait to see more!

Blogger John Bradley August 27, 2018 10:51 PM  

Question: are the digital editions explicitly not included in the higher-priced tiers?

For instance, I'd be into doing $60 for the gold-logo single issues, but would also like to read them as they're released. So another $25 on top of the $60?

Blogger John Bradley August 27, 2018 10:55 PM  

Nevermind. I see that clicking on the level opens it up to reveal that yes, it includes the digital editions.


Blogger Uncle John's Band August 27, 2018 10:55 PM  

I'm in. #161

Blogger DJ | AMDG August 27, 2018 11:00 PM  

I’m really excited for this. Back when GI Joe was more spy like (not sure if Chuck Dixon was writing it back then), I enjoyed it. I’m also a big Punisher/Daredevil espionage and crime comic reader. Brubaker wrote some great spy stuff and I liked all the Captain America espionage books he wrote. Currently I’m reading NinjaK and wish there were more and better titles in the genre. Don’t like the 007 books and John Wick isn’t published fast enough. I am more than ready for Dixon’s take on The Agent in Q. Thx Vox.

Blogger James Dixon August 27, 2018 11:20 PM  

Backed at the digital level. It will be a long wait, but I expect it to be completely worth it.

Blogger widlast washere August 27, 2018 11:41 PM  

I'm in.

Blogger Grey Carter August 27, 2018 11:45 PM  

I can't recall ever buying a comic book before. I just backed Alt Hero Q and can't wait for my paperback!

Blogger Neil Patrick Carris August 27, 2018 11:56 PM  

My hope is that words spreads throughout the Q-o-sphere like a wildfire. This is bringing the culture wars to a new level.

Trust the plan. Enjoy the show. These Marvel and DC people are stupid.

Blogger Rough Carrigan August 28, 2018 12:10 AM  

I just contributed. I'm anxious to read this.

Anonymous Anonymous August 28, 2018 1:01 AM  

our nerd shit is for everyone. Bullies and bigots fuck off.

Spoken with the usual total lack of logic, awareness, or irony.

SJWs Always Lie.

Most especially to themselves. Invents ex nihilo a campaign of hate against her and heroically defeats this mirage with her super diversity powers: lies and more lies.

She just convinced me to double my intended backing.

Blogger Bobiojimbo August 28, 2018 1:01 AM  

VD, can we get the t-shirts as possible add on rewards?

Blogger Shimshon August 28, 2018 1:24 AM  

It was hard with both hands my back, but I managed to contribute.

Blogger Philippe M August 28, 2018 1:53 AM  


Blogger Vassago August 28, 2018 1:55 AM  

Backed! Can't wait for it to come, haven't been this excited about a comic in forever!

Blogger Badmojo August 28, 2018 2:39 AM  

Backed. Looking forward to this one too!

Blogger CoolHand August 28, 2018 2:45 AM  

32% as of 1:44am CDT

Don't think we're gonna make the goal by morning, but I'll be real surprised if it takes 'til the end of the week.

Blogger Tanjil Bren August 28, 2018 5:27 AM  

“Our nerd shit is for everyone. Bullies and bigots fuck off.”

I've always found cognitive dissonance vaguely fascinating (in an Ebola-virus-under-microscope kind of a way).
They will insist on offering up these little glimpses of mind though.
It's like being forced to view a naked pole-dancing peepshow featuring an overweight, geriatric leper...

Blogger Tanjil Bren August 28, 2018 5:32 AM  

(Apologies; one does not make compounds with words ending in 'ing'; a bad habit I'm afraid.)

Blogger VD August 28, 2018 6:59 AM  

VD, can we get the t-shirts as possible add on rewards?

That's basically what they are. Does the system not let you back for multiple perks?

Blogger tuberman August 28, 2018 7:16 AM  

Just backed for hardcover #244, will likely add to this later.

Anonymous Anonymous August 28, 2018 7:19 AM  

My 0.1% in.

Vox, can I get the hard copy set in Germany? I’ll definitely upgrade if so.

Blogger VD August 28, 2018 8:00 AM  

Vox, can I get the hard copy set in Germany?

Yes, certainly.

Blogger maniacprovost August 28, 2018 8:25 AM  

Gotta encourage the smart guys to read Cryptonomicon, we're gonna need our own bank.

Starting a bank is highly illegal, on the level of war crimes.

We need to establish a crypto infrastructure, on something solid like Cardano.

Blogger VFM Bear August 28, 2018 9:17 AM  

And backed!

Can't wait!

Blogger Alt London August 28, 2018 9:18 AM  

Wooooo Im in!

Blogger Unknownsailor August 28, 2018 11:33 AM  

48% as of 8:32 AM PST 28 Aug. If it takes to the end of the week to reach the funding goal I would be surprised.

Blogger CoolHand August 28, 2018 1:20 PM

I did the TPB and the Six Singles perks, but I had to run them through as two separate contributions.

Couldn't find any way to do it all at once.

Wasn't that big of a deal though.

Blogger Al K. Annossow August 28, 2018 1:30 PM  


Now I feel all sexy.
