Fucking face palm
you're not fooling anyone...you watch Lil Nas X music vids on repeat :lol: :lol:

...who knows...maybe the lgbtasdf&^*(#$%# community will buy dozens and dozens of comic books and collectibles and save the comic industry? that's how it works right? <5-10% of the fanbase buys the majority of the merchandise right?
Here is quote of a Youtube comment on my favorite comics commentator/crowdfunding comics success youtubers' latest video talking about this Jonathan Kent thing. But first a little background on this channel:

This guy started his channel back in 2017 to just talk about the sorry state of the comics industry, he had done some comic stuff on his own in the past but nothing big. He's in his 40s, he's a military vet (both army and marines) and is just a normal dude who loves comics (and has terrible taste in movies).

Yet thanks to YT he amassed a following, connected with people (mainly Ethan Van Sciver) in what was dubbed as "comicsgate" (long story) and he basically decided to just start making his own comics.

He has since quit his job, started his own comics publishing company and crowdfunds all this comics with incredible success. He's even gotten to pitch and work in Sylvester on creating an "Expendables Go To Hell" graphic novel. He worked with the previously mentioned Chuck Dixon to write it as well.

Also, speaking of wild success. Ethan Van Sciver was a big time comic artist (incredible artist) and writer for DC (mainly) and Marvel. But a few years back he left DC to do his own thing because he is conservative and very anti-woke. He got shat on by the industry but has since gone on to create a multi-seven figure comics publishing company through crowdfunding his own books. He just sells his own stuff. And whenever he puts out a book he gets a few 100K at least every time. His Cyberfrog work has even generated over a million bucks from a single campaign.

Anyway...here is the quote:
My daughter is bisexual (well, technically, if she was woke, she says she would define herself as pansexual), lives with me, as does her very gay, lesbian partner. I used to be hardcore into comics and due to the crap that has infested comics, I am not into them at all any more. My daughter has thoroughly read and enjoyed most of my issues of comics and wondered why I stopped. I didn't tell her why but simply went out and bought a pile of new a d semi new comics for her to read. Without explaining my positions on anything, she tried to read them. Constantly, I would hear her exclaim, "WTF? What is this garbage?" or "Since when is so-and-so character bisexual? That's just F'jng stupid." or ""WTH, this story has no plot. They aren't doing anything except talking. This is F'ing garbage."

We have had long discussions about them since and her conclusion? Exactly the same as mine. Comics are lost. Story lines and plot no longer exist. Comics have become a platform on which to ONLY virtue signal. BTW, she is 23, is working on a college degree in psychology, and should, by virtue of her sexuality, age, and education, fit in with the woke crowd, but she (mostly) detests it.

She has asked the same questions in our discussions, again without me leading or promoting her. Why then characters gay or bisexual, or why focus on race and skin color, and segregate groups the way they do. Did I mention she is also half First Nations (indigenous for those not in the know) her questions are, "Why turn a character gay if it doesn't advance the plot line, give them a weakness to exploit, give them a new power to utilize against a villain, introduce new characters, or otherwise, in any way, significantly affect the story? Her conclusion is the same as mine and yours. It's ONLY to virtue signal and hold themselves aloft as "a good person." She hates this tokenization as much as I do.

We explained all of this crap to her partner who isn't in to comics at all, and she laughed. She says she has seen this in the gay community for years (she's 8 years older than my daughter) when people with absolutely nothing else of interest going on in their lives try to aim they are bisexual or join LGBT associations to help "advance the cause." She detests those people. Her point? Go get a cause that's relevant to your life, and also, we don't have a cause. We are accepted by most of society now, and those that don't accept us? F them. If they don't like me, too bad for them, I could give two s-hits about the."
Final thoughts, if my daughter can notice this immediately without watching comics channels, or having me mention it, and SHE is bisexual and HATES this, how do these writers expect normies to react. It's all activism, virtue, and publicity that will ultimately fail when comics die. BTW, as a long range trucker, I have travelled widely across Canada and the US, comics have kept me sane through a lot of it, and I know a large number of comics stores across the two countries. Almost all of the owners have seen customers drop comic lines, writers, and characters they love simply because they have noticed how garbage comics now are. Most are also reducing the numbers of new comics they buy because it's just not economically maintainable to buy stock that just doesn't sell. These writers are cutting the trees, stacking the wood, pouring the gas, and lighting the match on their own careers, and in the process, destroying the pleasure millions have taken from comics over the years. I hope and pray they wise up soon, but I think it is too late and they are too up their own asses to smell the crap anymore.

Putting William Shatner in space is pretty fucking epic I must say. Would be cool to see all the Star Trek captains (Next Gen, DS9 and Voyager) go next.

All my favorite authors are dead, and I've never been huge into Comic books.

I'll file this one under "Meh...."

So, I'm listening to Michael Malice interview Jessie Lee Peterson (and apparently Michael was on his show earlier) and every time I hear JLP speak I just think that he has incredibly poignant and insightful points wrapped in outlandish shit. But at the same time, in particular when he speaks on black people I'm like, "Yeeaahh...but he's not wrong."

One of the more insight things I've heard him say a few years ago was regarding racism. Yes, as humans we discriminate in all kinds of ways but in regards to racism, when you really break it down, it's behavior that people hate, not necessarily the race itself. People are (wrongfully) assigning a certain set of behaviors that they hate to an entire group of people and thus hate that group of people. When I first heard it I was like, "Hmm...that's something to think about."

This is sort of mirrors what Daryl Davis experienced when he started befriending KKK members. They opened up to him after they got to know him and they realized that he didn't have those set of behaviors that they thought all black people had.

So I pretty much completed my Marvel marathon. I just watched WHAT IF.... last night. OMFG I had no idea what this series was about, glad I went in blind, enjoyed it even more. I recommend that show, only 9 episodes.

The Batman trailer...looking fire.

The Flash first look. Yup, I still can't stand Ezra Miller. But that new suit is legit and more Michael Keaton is always a good thing.
