Vox Day has been called the most hated man in science fiction. Well now he wants to be the most hated man in comics. He’s publishing comics with a >$250K kickstarter and he’s pushing a right wing comic called Alt-Hero among other more mainstream fare. A DC comic creator had an on-line discussion with Vox (see link). I found it very interesting and includes Vox’s synopsis of his battles with sci-fi, game and comics SJWs. Pretty interesting.
Vox is, as most of you probably know, an incredibly polarizing figure on the cultural front. His public face is intentionally as antagonistic and “triggering” to the lefties as it can be. He has staked out a position that thrives on conflict with the left. And he is pointing the direction for a Reconquista of the cultural institutions. To that end he has begun some commercial ventures that take advantage of the space that the left has produced by restricting what kind of books, video games and comic books are “allowable.” His Castalia House publications produces mainstream fiction and some non-fiction that could never be published in the current left-wing publishing establishment. In the last week or so, he has begun a kickstarter campaign to fund comic books that feature some very well-known comic book authors and artists who have been gray-listed by Marvel and DC for not being sufficiently trans-friendly or for actually having fun in their comics. I read that he has already topped $200,000 in funding so I can only imagine that a beginning is being made toward a commercial product. Excellent. Even though I’m not much of a comic book guy, I could see buying a graphic novel or two if the product was interesting enough. Kudos to Vox for making it happen. If you are a comicophile (made up word!) then keep an eye out for his Alt★Hero comics. But even if comic books don’t happen to be your thing, you can only admire someone who is doing something to reverse the scourge of leftist encroachment into all aspects of life.
