I still follow Comicsgate drama. It's very entertaining these days. I like these weird guys who have Twitter accounts and Youtube channels devoted to taking down Comicsgate. They have 400 followers and their videos get 900 views, but they keep going. Ethan Van Sciver rarely posts short videos anymore; he mostly does livestreams that start at 2 AM and last five hours--and these guys watch every minute of them, so they can dissect it. They watch him more than I do. And I like him.

It's crazy people fighting other crazy people.

Meanwhile, Comicsgate are great at raising money. It's amazing how much these books make in crowd-funding. $50K, $100K, a million. Detractors like to marginalize Comicsgate, but I can't imagine that every single person working at Marvel and DC DOESN'T notice that.

I'm not saying that Comicsgate are flawless, I should add.

One of my favorite recent CG dramas is the story of STEALING SOLO, a comic put out by Jeff Hicks, the guy behind the World Class Bullshitters Youtube channel that complains about Disney's Star Wars all of the time. He never made a comic before, but raised $50K for a book about a bunch of nerds who hated THE LAST JEDI so they kidnap Harrison Ford and try to make their own movie.

In his bumbling inexperience, Jeff Hicks got his book printed by the cheapest company he could find, an outfit that prints catalogs and ads and doesn't do comics at all. And they treated the book like a catalog. No protective packaging whatsoever, no respect for it as a "collectible". They just stamped the recipient's mailing address on the back cover and shipped the book like that.

On top of that, it was a year late.

It's CG's most hilarious fuck-up.

Just because Marvel and DC suck that doesn't automatically make this shit good.
No-one is saying it's good, you blithering idiot.

Oh, no, THIS fucker. Who would think that a pleb who calls the MCU "the modern mythos" and do videos about Star Wars toys would squander a $50k project? As Mayura Daidouji would say, it's a strange mystery!

I didn't say that. I said that the mainstream comics industry has made a large fortune by grifting manchildren. That's the way the entire American comics industry runs.

So I don't understand what's wrong with what these Comicsgate guys have done.

Imagine spending a billion US dollars to be a loser. Could've watched animu and be one for free.

I almost have to respect the hustle they have going on. These dudes have straight up made a fucking small fortune by grifting manchildren.
Oh yes, as opposed to what Marvel and DC have been doing for decades. :roll:

I wasn't expecting to read a Mythical Detective Loki reference today.

Richard Meyer's criticisms of Gail Simone's cringy first video aren't wrong, but it still takes some balls to do this when you're a man who can barely complete a coherent sentence without multiple rambly tangents in the middle.

Yeah, he should be more like autistic losers like Linkara that only reads wiki articles when he reviews comics.
