Marvel’s Ties With The Clintons And Islam

Share this post

Vox Day broke an incredible story this morning which bears repeating: Marvel’s deep dive into Islam and the Deep State. A reader of his uncovered some information regarding the relationship of Marvel’s VP of content and character development in conjunction with both the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation as well as UN Funding.

ComicsGate may not be up against just SJWs, but various third string proxies of the Swamp.

Sana Amanat, Marvel’s Muslim VP of Content and Character Development and Ms. Marvel co-creator, is the cousin of Huma Abedin, Hilary Clinton’s longtime aide. Two of Sana Amanat’s brothers have been prosecuted by the DOJ. The Amanat family donated as much as $1.2 million dollars to various Clinton foundations and initiatives. In turn, perhaps due to their family connection to Huma, the Clinton State Department assisted two of Sana’s brothers in accessing UN funds and partnerships, along with directly granting $1.35 million via the State Department for their non-profit groups. Sana herself was on the board of one of these non-profits, which received at least $100,000 from the State Department.

A non-profit Omar Amanat co-founded, Soliya, received a $1.25 million grant from the State Department. Soliya advocated for the (i) promotion of and (ii) provision of funding for positive portrayals of minorities, particularly Muslims in media, even if this meant funding commercially unsuccessful projects for a time, due to their enhancement of both minority self-perception and overall public inclusiveness. This business philosophy seems reflected in some of the publishing decisions made by Marvel.

Sana’s brother Omar has been documented by various journalists as having made multiple generous bids at Richard Branson’s past charity auctions. Sana Amanat began her career at Branson’s newly created Virgin Comics, which only existed from 2006-2008 before being sold by Branson. Sana was employed at Virgin from 2007 to 2008, before she then joined Marvel in 2009.

Sana’s aunt and Huma’s mother is a noted, prominent Saudi Arabian member of the Muslim Sisterhood. Marvel has recently received favorable treatment from the Saudis, including recent screenings of Black Panther that ended a national 35 year cinema ban and co-operative involvement in Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 initiative.

Marvel has newly expanded Sana’s role, though she remains a comic book editor, making her an executive producer on a forthcoming Marvel animated film, despite her complete lack of experience as a film producer.

This information casts a new light on why Marvel works so hard at pushing Ms. Marvel, even though it hasn’t been selling well by all accounts — and conversely why, despite not seeing much success by any other metric, it continues to stay at #1 in Superhero Comics on Amazon. It appears there are some shenanigans involved in keeping that book in place, and that this character is being forced on us for much deeper reasons than simply wanting to “promote diversity.” This is propaganda trying to influence US culture on a global level.

I keep trying to tell people that these movements are not grass roots, there’s not single people who just rise to the top and get there on their own in these circles. It’s always coordinated, it’s always got either deep pockets trying to manipulate a narrative, or reshape the thoughts of our youths. Once you discover it in the major news realm, these kind of stories pop up in a lot of different places, and there’s usually much bigger explanations involved in what’s going on.

Another big development unrelated to comics but illustrating the point came from Twitter yesterday, where dozens of blue check mark twitter verified “journalists” all used the same language in conjunection with the supreme court confirmation of Kavanagh. Each of them called the smear campaign against him a “credible accusation” — using that terminology intentionally to in essence public opinion try him without a trial. The language is designed to manipulate and convict (after all, it’s credible) without real evidence against him. And all of these outlets posted it simultaneously.

It’s very shady how we’re manipulated as a society, both in the corporate content produced and in the way the fake news attempts to create narratives and build their fictions into reality.

Watch out. And the best thing you can do is support indie content creators like myself. I don’t have a PR team or a group from Saudi Arabia to prop up my sales numbers. All I have is you. The third book in my trilogy is coming out later this month. Make sure to get on book one and two now so we can have any chance at displacing some of the content that has the corporate backing above us.

The Breitweisers Back Out Of Convention Because Of Unsafe Environment

Share this post

Conservative creators have had issues at conventions for about a year now. It started with Worldcon 76’s unwillingness to protect me despite the fact that I had credible threats against me, which I sent to them and, instead of taking actions to help authors creators, they banned me because of my outspoken political views.

This opened a cascade of conventions treating professionals on the right side of the aisle as inhuman:

  • Actor Kevin Sorbo was threatened that he was not allowed to attend East Coast Comic Con because he was friends with Sean Hannity.
  • John Ringo was removed from ConCarolinas after they refused to keep him safe from SJW attack mobs.
  • Larry Correia was removed from Origins Game Fair, despite having a very popular RPG coming out for his books, because of SJW hate mobs descending on him.
  • Jeremy Hambly, known as The Quartering, was sucker punched at GenCon by an extreme left wing activist game designer. GenCon started banning people who even asked them questions about the incident from their chats, and they went on to promote the game by the designer who punched him during the convention, instead of taking action to remove the threat.

The message is clear: conventions are not safe for conservative creators, the attempts to keep us out and away from meeting and interacting with fans is escalating toward violence, and conventions actually take the side of the violent perpetrators rather than the professionals who are just trying to sell books.

It’s making it nearly impossible to have public appearances.

Meanwhile, the creators on the left who say the most horrific things, threaten violence online, rile up hate mobs are all treated as if they’re the most important people in the room.

It’s no wonder Mitch and Elizabeth Breitweiser, creators of the very popular Red Rooster comic, feel like they will be unsafe at this con that’s coming up, especially given strange videos on the internet by people who are saying they’re going to “confront” comicsgate creators. There’s a cosplayer who uses her entire twitter account to threaten harassment of right wing pros, and let’s not forget last year when industry professionals themselves threatened Richard C. Meyer to try to harass him out of New York Comic Con.

Conventions need to step up their commitment to authors and creators, because we are the draw. The fans want to see us, to hang out with us, and we want to give back to the fans as well. But in this environment where conventions won’t even acknowledge the threats and violence done to this side of the political aisle — seeming to take these positions because they agree with violence or worse being done to us — it’s making the environment worse. Convention organizers need to step up and say they will protect all guests from violence and harassment, no matter the political persuasion, and make clear statements so fandom can be safe for us in the future.

In The Blood Of Giants, Zaira Von Monocle travel to a foreign continent and finds  the environment is anything but safe. But she has no choice to remove herself because her kingdom back home is on the line if she doesn’t find a cure to the strange super-soldier serum the Wyranth have been ingesting. Read the book here and see what everyone’s saying is my best book to date.

The Anti-ComicsGate Industry Surge Is About Harassing And Scaring People

Share this post

I was shocked yesterday to see the attack on Alterna Comics, a small independent comic creator on the East Coast. They’ve been innovating within the industry by bringing back newsprint — making comic books affordable for everyone. I pick up their entire line and it’s usually between $6-10 a month just because of their titles being $1.50 each. It’s amazing!

They’ve been an apolitical group, really focusing on creating great comics in 3 different genres: sci-fi, horror, and an all ages line. It’s been really great all the way around. Best part is they’ve been working with smaller creators who don’t get political in their work, so it’s been a breath of fresh air compared to the rest of the industry.

The industry can’t have that!

Yesterday, editor Jennifer de Guzman from DC Comics came after a SMALL PRESS INDIE PUBLISHER (emphasis intentional because this is mind-boggling), attacking him on twitter for NOT DENOUNCING READERS.

I’m serious. This is how far the comic industry has gone. She sicced him good, and riled up several other comic creators to say how disappointed they were in Alterna Comics for the simple act of producing comics, sticking with their guns of being politcs-free, and catering to readers. Alterna didn’t endorse any movements, they didn’t say anything that would signal one way or another, they weren’t even rude to the attacks on them, they simply said they value all readers who buy their comics.

And shouldn’t they?

Not in SJW world. SJWs would rather not have readers if they’re not the approved people, that’s been the whole point of comicsgate all along. Half the country doesn’t even have a single book by the big companies that is geared toward them. They don’t have a single representative within the writing community at these companies, and when one is outed, they never work there again.

Alterna simply says “we just are here to create comics. We love comics. Comics are for everyone.”

And that’s a major problem to the point where these SJWs have to shake them down.

They showed their true stripes this last weekend with this, and with a Marvel/DC artist sending pictures of his butthole publicly to Ethan Van Sciver and tagging him. This is the most unprofessional, disgusting industry where people would do that. These aren’t fans fed up with bad products, these are the top professionals trying to abuse and hurt people because they don’t like that there’s alternatives coming up to the work they’re putting out. They’re running scared and they’re getting abusive.

And they don’t seem to have anything else. All they have now is to try to harass us so hard that we disappear. What they don’t realize is, we’re not going to. It only makes us stronger. We are not afraid of them. We are comicsgate.

If you like my articles, make sure to check out my work Flying Sparks! It’s done lettering now and I’m waiting on the print and the stretch goal interior cover and it’ll be off to the printers. When that happens, store’s going down. Get it now!

ComicsGate Will Win Because Of Loyalty

Share this post

The most telling part of this industry is the way loyalties are divided. The people who fight ComicsGate are loyal first to brand – Disney, Warner Bros in their comic publishing form of Marvel and DC. Those loyalties then break down to characters created more than 50 years ago by Stan Lee and others that have gone through countless iterations, countless personality changes, countless revisions to where they aren’t even remotely the same character from month to month. It’s pretty amazing at how these companies brainwashed folk into supporting them no matter what product they put out.

These companies set things up like this for a couple of reasons: 1. they’re lazy and they don’t actually have to create real/good stories and 2. so they could cycle through talent and keep hiring cheaply to keep writing/art costs down, basically enslaving the industry.

I realized this fairly early and have been supporting indie comics for a long time. If you go back through my feeds you’ll find I’ve been pretty aggressive about supporting indies in stories and kickstarters of books from indies for a few years. I’ve been waiting for a movement like ComicsGate to come around and have everyone coalesce for a long time.

But even in the indies, the loyalty factor isn’t there. They’re all people trying to use their books as a stepping stone to get to these companies. So they’re all panicked and careful about their books that are struggling to get 100 backers and barely make a couple of thousand dollars. I’m not going to name names of some of the folk I’ve backed over the years, but I noticed a distinct lack of mention of Flying Sparks as soon as I hit the scene, and when i slowed down and asked for help directly (in case they didn’t see it), still had nothing.

They’re hyper-focused in their little bubble and are afraid to rock the boat in case these big two companies notice them so they can work for cheap and be enslaved to these characters they will never own. And the odds are, they’ll never get to work for them anyway.  That’s the sad part.

Enter ComicsGate. The closest I’ve come to ComicsGate before now is when I met Mike Baron (Nexus, Punisher) last year. I backed his book Q-Ball — we’ll call this proto-ComicsGate, and he’s been a great guy to me ever since. This is a movement where even veteran writers like him treat folk coming in as equals and friends, it’s really refreshing to see.

The list of support goes on too long to list in a blog, but my experiences were like this down the line from the biggest name creators to the random comic fan. This group really cares about the movement going on, about the products and it keeps going. My book has already made significant history as the first non-Pro book with no big names attached to crack $20,000 in the campaign. 

And it continues on. I was worried at first that this would just be a brief flash and it would run out of steam, but Jon Malin, my cover artist, already released a new IndieGoGo yesterday to tremendous success himself. It’s still rolling. People are saving their dollars from the big companies and supporting these books now. We have a trend. We have a new industry.

And that’s why we’re going to win this. Before I go today and create more content, I want to highlight one other kickstarter, Heroes Unleashed, a superhero novel franchise that’s going to be making waves over the next few years. It’s run by Silver Empire Publishing who are great friends and supporters. Books and novels need as much support as comics do if we’re going to change the culture, so it’s something to check out.

And don’t forget, Flying Sparks only has a couple of days left. Get in now because there’s going to be no more hardcovers after this run. You’ll want one for your collection!

The Culture War Is More Than Just Comics

Share this post

I mention on a lot of ComicsGate livestreams that Sci-Fi publishing is even in worse shape than the comic industry. It’s true, even though that’s hard to believe because comics has gone so crazy.

We’ve been supporting a lot of indie projects but there’s sci-fi stuff we need to make sure gets funded as well.

The first is Cirsova Magazine. This magazine really changed my life — and I mean it. It introduced me to a new flavor of action-packed writing which actually comes from the good ol’ days when science fiction was selling in the millions instead of thousands. It changed the way I write and it could use your support before it closes shortly. Don’t worry about the numbering, these are standalones with short stories in them. If you love comics and want to get more into reading, this is about as close as it gets to having short, digetable stories in comics but in prose writing form. Check it out here. It’s about a thousand from funding and only 4 days to go. It needs you!!!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1161542777/cirsova-vol-1-final-issues-9-and-10

Also up is Bradford Walker’s Star Knight Saga. This is again an old pulp adventure style book but this one’s a novel. It already funded and I believe on the first day.

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/star-knight-saga-book-one-reavers-of-the-void-adventure/x/7822803#/

Both have low costs and low buy ins and we need folk like this to make dents in sci-fi just like we’re doing in comics. So please don’t be shy.

I’m now moving my broadcasts to youtube, in the form of The Lunch Stream with my new cohost S. Misanthrope. Please go to youtube and subscribe as you won’t want to miss these broadcasts.

Conservative YouTube Commentator Alleges Assault At Gencon

Share this post

Jeremy Hambly has had a crazy few months in the world of Magic The Gathering. First, Magic went after him for mocking a cosplayer on twitter after she had rallied a number of players to harass and mass complain about him, just like we’ve seen done with various conservative personalities in different hobby-entertainment industries. Magic seemed to justify his ban because he posted memes featuring a cartoon frog created in MS Paint on his feed.

But as ComicsGate exploded, Hambly became a defender of those getting attacked on the right. This raised his profile again and the gaming and comic industry turned its attention to him.

I reported last year two incidents: first, in breaking the story that creative professionals in the comic industry were going to attempt to frame Richard Meyer for a crime at New York Comic Con, and second, that I sent an email to Worldcon, voicing concern for the safety of conservative personalities at conventions. They refused to respond, but later banned me under the guise of removing “racist bully” elements from their convention, libel that makes it more prone for people to attack me at future cons.

Now we have an escalation with the first real violent incident against a conservative personality at Gencon.

Hambly did not capture the incident itself on video, but does have a number of eye witnesses afterward who all confirm someone asked his name and came up and started throwing punches at him. There is a glass window at a restaurant that is shattered where the attacker punched as well.

Hambly says he is leaving Gencon, as the convention has done nothing about this in several hours since the incident, and police did not come to assist him. He rightfully believes that he would not be safe at the convention any longer.

This disturbing trend of attacks on conservatives in geek culture is getting out of hand. The left is in charge of all of these cultural institutions from Gencon to Worldcon to SFWA and all of the major companies in the industry. They need to stop with their “punch a Nazi” rhetoric and speak out against violence unequivocally. This has gone too far. Someone’s really going to get hurt simply because they don’t like the way we voted. Violent intimidation is literal fascism.

UPDATE: Jeremy has identified his attacker thanks to some eyewitness help. The fellow is on Twitter and his identity is out there. Jeremy says he is going to call the police and press charges according to the linked tweet below:

https://twitter.com/TheQuartering/status/1025052205173428224

If you support conservative creators’ rights to exist within the industry peacefully please consider supporting Flying Sparks, the comic of a hero and villain in love, available on IndieGoGo now.

Introducing Indiechron – The Guide To ComicsGate Crowdfunds

Share this post

Over the weekend, I launched a new page in conjunction with Edwin Boyette and popular YouTuber That Umbrella Guy. The page is meant to track the sales of Comicsgate-based projects in order to provide an aggregate amount of sales, plus help people find new projects to back. Our intention is to capture all of ComicsGate within the page and have some nice updates over time so we can see how our sub-industry is going that started with the mega-success, Jawbreakers: Lost Souls.

It’s called Indiechron and the name comes from Comicchron, the traditional comics sales tracker.

Indiechron

The page is in its infancy, as we are just coming up with the concept and trying to get this going. I’ll pin it to the top of my main page earlier so there will be an easy link in the navigation bar for people who want to check on it. We’ll update every few days at the least and are trying to add projects as people tell us about them.

If anyone out there is good at WordPress I can use some technical help because as of right now there’s a small issue with the width of it and I can’t seem to push the width wider. Other than that, we’re open to feedback on how to present the content. This is a work in progress.

If you want to support ComicsGate, make sure to pick up Flying Sparks on IndieGoGo! Flying Sparks features writing by me, a cover by Jon Malin, cover colors by Brett. R Smith, now unlocked an interior chapter cover by Will Caligan, and we’re fast approaching a stretch goal to have a beautiful print of Meta-Girl done by Timothy Lim. A lot of the community is involved. Check it out here.

Now over $10,000 in backing!!!

What Is #ComicsGate?

Share this post

Most people who frequent here are familiar with the movement, but former D.C. Comics artist Mike S. Miller, who’s currently running the Lonestar IndieGoGo campaign, wrote a nice analysis about the movement for people who aren’t quite familiar with it:

As the comic book world braces for its annual mecca to San Diego Comic Con, there is a storm brewing beneath the feet of its biggest publishers: Comicsgate.

There has been a growing dissatisfaction with the direction main stream comic books have been going in the past few years. In a time of unprecedented media attention for comic books from the three biggest publishers in the industry, and a period of economic growth unseen in the last thirty years… the comic book industry lost over seventy million dollars last year.

But that money hasn’t all just disappeared. A burgeoning new movement that has been labeled ‘Comicsgate’, has managed to pick up enough of those lost readers to sell over one million dollars in the past three months, and the movement is growing every day.

What is ‘Comicsgate’?

Comicsgate is an alliance of comic book fans, critics, and creators who have found common cause in standing up against what they see as a hard push by social justice warriors into their hobby. A push that has corrupted or politicized the industry they have spent a lifetime cultivating. Fans have simply been walking away from the hobby in droves (as the industries falling profits attest). Critics entertain those disgruntled fans through social media and YouTube channels, giving shape to a movement that has been years, if not decades, in the making. Creators, some of whom have been the subject of blacklisting at companies run by said SJW’s, have found common cause with critics and fans alike, and thus was born an alliance: Comicsgate.

Who is ‘Comicsgate’?

Comicsgate is the people who share the same belief that those who run the major publishing companies in the comics industry are treating their fans poorly. In part due to their constant pushing of social justice or other political ideologies. In part due to some creators and editors outright insulting the fans who disagree with said ideologies.

Comicsgate is not about political ideology or identity. There are conservatives and liberals, there are black and white, gay and straight, Christian and Atheist, and everything under the sun. Where comicsgate people disagree is not where they put their focus. It’s where they agree that they ally: Comics are about entertainment, not political or ideological proselytizing. That is the line in the sand that has brought a disparate group of people together to change comics as a medium back to what it was when they fell in love with the genre.

The movement means business.

A few months ago one of the better known critics in the Comicsgate movement was told to ‘put up or shut up’ about his critique of comic books. Richard C. Meyer, aka ‘Diversity and Comics’ on Youtube and Twitter, took the challenge to heart. Hiring Marvel artist Jon Malin and colorist Brett Smith to create his own comic book, ‘Jawbreakers’ and sell it through Indiegogo. And did it sell. To date, the book has sold over $364,000 and climbing. No small feat for an independent comic. And just the start of a wave of comics in the Comicsgate alliance.

Next came Ethan Van Sciver’s ‘Cyberfrog: Blood Honey’, a re-birth of the Green Lantern artist’s 25 year old creator owned title, which has broken all records in the crowd-funding of comic books at a whopping $443,000 and growing every day.

Mitch Breitweiser’s ‘Red Rooster: The Golden Age’ launched just a few weeks ago, and has already broken the $90,000 mark.

Chuck Dixon’s ‘Space Force’ launched out of the gate last week and has reached $30,000 already.

And latest to the game, launching just this weekend and already breaking the $25,000 barrier, is Injustice artist Mike S. Miller’s ‘Lonestar: Heart of the Hero’.

These, along with a handful of other titles have cumulatively brought the fledgling movement of Comicsgate projects to a height no one could have imagined three short months ago when Jawbreakers first hit the crowd-funding platform. And with the audience of the critics and the creators alike growing day after day, this seems to be a movement with real feet.

Watch out Marvel, DC, and Image comics. The customers you’ve been taking for granted have found a new venue for spending their hard earned money. With a little luck, and a bit of business sense, the Comicsgate alliance could well shape the future of the comic book industry itself.

The movement is thriving so much, a million dollars is nothing to scoff at, especially where the industry is at overall right now. It’s only going to keep moving as well. I’m coming out with my crowdfund for my comic Flying Sparks, the story of a hero and villain in love. If you want to suport comicsgate, support this because it’s got writing by me, a cover by Jon Malin and Brett R. Smith, and there’s stretch goals to include even more people.

The #ComicsGate Crowdfund Successes Keep Rolling

Share this post

Honestly, it’s starting to look like we have our own little pocket industry here. While the books I’m talking about now aren’t making the $300-400k amount, they are making far more than most other first time comic kickstarters that I see launching.

The most recent success story is Mike S. Miller’s Lonestar: Heart Of A Hero. Miller is another former DC Artist who has an extreme amount of artistic talent, and his superhero has a cool patriotic theme which appeals very well to our budding movement. He just launched over the weekend and already has made more than $20,000 for a 48-Page book.

Shortly before that was Trump’s Space Force, by veteran creators Chuck Dixon, Timothy Lim and Brett R. Smith. This over-the-top pro-Trump concept has been on the minds of many ever since Trump announced a space force, and with this level of talent, it has the whole industry excited. In its first week, the single-issue book has made more than $25,000.

Mitch Breitweiser’s Red Rooster has also reached near-Ethan Van Sciver level of success since it’s come out. His new superhero is a very unique concept and with him and his wife doing most of the artistic work, and friend of the movement Mark Pellegrini on writing duties, people took to this project very early on. It should break $90k this week.

And Blake Northcott, writer of Aspen Comics’ Executive Asisstant Iris put out a kickstarter for a new novel, not even a comic. It broke $10,000 in tis first weekend  and is on its way up, and I haven’t seen many prose books do this kind of funding at all.

The train keeps rolling. This movement is not just something stuck on a couple of lucky YouTube stars, but it’s people committed to fun comic books across the board. Even with so many projects in just a span of a couple of months, these books keep funding — which means there’s a lot of readers out there who are very excited for the movement. It’s rolling. This is the summer where the comic industry changes. We are building something new together.

Comics are a lot like science fiction, and I’m working to change that industry as well. I write fun books just like the comics I’m about to put out, and if you haven’t checked out For Steam And Country, now’s the time. A sequel novella, “Knight Training” is coming out this week, followed by 2 more full books this summer. It’s the #SummerOfSteampunk. #MoveTheNeedle in Science Fiction and read For Steam And Country today!

Blacklisting Didn’t Work, So They’re Trying To Harass Us Out Of The Industry

Share this post

Ever since I came out of the closet with how I voted, it’s been one thing after another in an attempt to gatekeep me out of the industry. It started with a convention removing me from their speaker circuit as most readers are aware, with many of the same people from that convention then enacting a full ban in an unprecedented move at Worldcon, so they literally wouldn’t have to even see a conservative because it might trigger them.

When I started getting big last summer, the lone professional writer’s guild Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America decided had their president go on a blacklisting and defamation campaign—not only to try to make sure markets wouldn’t publish me, but asking authors to not speak with me.

Her antics led to attacks from big NYT Bestsellers like John Scalzi and Chuck Wendig, both of whom would ramble about me on their blogs and twitter out of nowhere in an effort to try to destroy me.

SFWA’s president’s followers also went way overboard in those months, doxing my children, posting about their medical issues, and all culminating in sending an anonymous spring-loaded package to my house. SFWA’s president has never apologized, never told her fans this was over the line, but last week made bizarre false accusations about me (without naming me) on Twitter to further escalate the rhetoric.

It only gets crazier on the comics side.

A year ago, I wrote an expose about how Marvel Comics blacklists conservatives. Rich Johnston of Bleeding Cool turned it into a fake news hit piece on me (I was a nobody at the time, so very odd he would dedicate a piece to that on his site). From there, I had several trolls come over from the SJW comics fandom. They still follow me around to this day, though I’m not sure what they want as they’re not looking at my work. Several anonymous people, making account after account to just come say nasty things to me. And they’re all white males attacking a Hispanic, I might add.

But these last couple of weeks have had complete harassment of professionals who have fans in the #ComicsGate crowd by online cowards who are actively attempting to hurt our businesses.

Both Ethan Van Sciver and Diversity & Comics have IndieGoGo campaigns running, and both campaigns were hit by duplicate mock campaigns to try to confuse buyers and frighten away customers. They were identical in every way, making clear impersonation attempts to fraudulently raise money based on the names of these hardworking professionals.

On top of that, the imposters took to twitter making mock accounts of EVS, D&C, Mitch Breitweiser, Brett R. Smith, Jon Malin, and me. They went to trouble trying to make a number of identical tweets to us, and then set to following all of our fans. I was inundated with messages (do you have another account, were you banned?) for a few days as the person harassed me and others. Eventually, the person broke the bit and started making posts rambling about how terrible President Trump is, making it look like I was doing it.

On top of this, the same person (I believe, as it’s all anonymous) made accounts dedicated to mocking my Christianity, made more accounts to mock my science fiction writing, and just continued over and over to just make out of left field nasty remarks. The other comic professionals received the same.

This is the type of harassment the SJWs all claim they face, and then never actually have anything beyond someone criticized their work and it sent them into a mental-disorder aided tailspin. It’s being done to us, and it’s being done on levels that would absolutely break these people if they truly had to face it. They’re trying to mess with our psyches and make the pressure so immense that it forces us out of the business. Why? Because we’re starting to be successful. All of the crowdfund campaigns have done very well so far in comics, and we’re bypassing the gatekeeping establishment that’s been culling comics for decades. For the first time. This is a revolution like indies were to Amazon several years ago in books, and they don’t want that to happen to their fragile comics.

But we’re going to keep going. And we’re going to keep winning. It just needs to be out there how much pressure we face simply for the act of speaking out.

In a society where everyone’s got telepathic bonds, it’s very hard to speak out when you see problems going on in your society. The pressure that mounts is even worse. Commander Tamar has to deal with this among the Aryshan people as they’re getting drawn into an interstellar war that will be bloody for both her people and the humans they face. Read how she handles herself in The Stars Entwined.
