AH:Q Exclusive at BIC

Bounding Into Comics has an exclusive on FIVE complete pages from Alt-Hero: Q. Check them out!
Arkhaven Comics is currently running an IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign for their upcoming Alt-Hero: Q series by Bane co-creator Chuck Dixon and artist Hélix Haze. Colors are provided by Arklight Studios. The series will be released in individual issues and ultimately collected into a graphic novel. There will be six total issues and each issue will be 24 pages long. The story will be set in the Alt-Hero universe alongside Vox Day’s Alt-Hero series and Chuck Dixon’s Avalon.

The series finds inspiration from the QAnon phenomenon and will have a focus on “ordinary men and women who make the choice to become extraordinary through their selfless actions to save others.” If you are unfamiliar with the QAnon phenomenon, Chuck Dixon told us “this will be an intro, at least in a fictional sense to what it’s all about and what its mission is.”

Arkhaven Comics’ Publisher Vox Day hinted at what we can expect from this story:

“It’s going to be our answer to the question that everyone is asking: “who is Q”. Everyone has a different theory, everyone has a different explanation. Since we’re setting this in the world of Alt-Hero, that allows us to throw out some outlandish ideas about what’s really going on underneath all the various conspiracy theories. We’ll be launching it as soon as we have the sample pages to show the potential backers, so in about two weeks. It’s an awesome script and people are going to love it.”

Chuck Dixon gave us some more key details keying in on the series main protagonist Roland Dane:

“What we’re presenting is an action/thriller hero that I’m really excited to be creating. We’ll be inserting him into stories of global cabals and dark conspiracies that threaten not only world peace but the basic human rights of the individual. Our guy, Roland Dane, is an experienced law enforcement professional who has to drop out of the system to act as an operative for the mysterious organization he knows only as Q. Roland is a little rough around the edges and his methods are often direct but he’s one man trying to make a difference for all of us.”

Take a look at the first five pages:
I was going to post all five pages here by the end of the weekend, but when BIC asked for the exclusive, I could hardly say no. So, go see them, and comment on them, there.

Yeah, this looks like the best one yet. I opted for the hardcover edition on this one. I can't wait.

Oh, and VD, I would comment over there, but Bounding Into Comics' site is congenitally broken. It doesn't display in any browser I have access to, whether or not there are adblockers turned on. Old IE, the most insecure browser known to man, says there are security issues with scripts running on the page and refuses to load them.

Their site is borked, and needs fixing, badly.

For those that want to see the page as it should be over there, you can use to view it:

I'm not a comics guy but I've got to say that Alt Hero Q looks incredible. I'm getting the graphic novel when it comes out.

Is there anything coming down the pike to replace Scamazon for electronic reader?

Sweet Friday!

I got AH softcovers, but went straight to hardcover for this one after enjoying all the Arkhaven content up to now.

These previews do not disappoint.

Either the problem is on your end, or I need to go out and buy a lottery ticket now. It's loading without issue in IE11, Pale Moon, Firefox Quantum, Brave and Vivaldi.

If you mean a handheld ebook, Walmart has just started offering the Kobo. We have 2 and are very happy with them.
For any other device, including phones and tablets, you can buy the books direct from Castalia in CBZ format and there are lots of programs that will display them properly. I use SCViewer.

The problem with their site seems to come and go. I'm guessing it is related to something third-party through one of the many ads they have on the site. I periodically will get it to load OK on my machines, but usually not, and the issue isn't limited to me. I've seen others complain about it too.

Today Ibtried Chrome, Firefox, Brave, Edge, and IE11. Not a single one would load and all mentioned dangerous or insecure scripts. Edge, Firefox, and IE11 are all default virgin installs, no add-ons, no blockers.

Is your clock correct?

Blogger Snidely Whiplash September 21, 2018 5:48 PM  

Also, try the NoScript plugin.

Blogger CoolHand September 21, 2018 6:01 PM  

Loaded fine for me just now. Firefox with NoScript and AdBlock.

Blogger Cetera September 21, 2018 6:35 PM  

Yeah, clock is correct. The site is currently working again for me in all browsers. It is 100% something on their end, intermittent, and I really do think it is from one of their ad partners on the site.

That part where you can't unsee what has been seen? That perfectly describes the latest Metokur video. Hint: Gas the Furries.

Blogger Were-Puppy September 21, 2018 9:18 PM  

Really looking forward to this series.
I have a feeling it will be great to pass around to normies who don't know all that much about Q .

Blogger Brick Hardslab September 21, 2018 10:06 PM  

This art is great. Best AH yet.

It's almost certainly an ad then. When the ad(s) causing the problem show up in the ad rotation you get the errors. The rest of the time you don't. It may even be running an attack script looking for exploits on your machine. NoScript or an equivalent would probably eliminate the problem if so.

Cetera, the issue may be with your computer. I’d suspect that you might be infected with something and would investigate that first.

I Have a BIC 4 color pen, but it isn't RYKW, it is RGBK.
