DC to Marvel: “Hold my beer”

If you think the SJW convergence in comics was bad already, just wait and see how DC is rebranding its Vertigo imprint.

“It’s time to rebuild DC Vertigo. We’re returning to our roots by spotlighting the most exciting new voices in comics, as well as bringing new voices to comics. From the corners of television, games, music, activism, podcasting, comics and more, all of our creators are passionate and have something to say. These sophisticated stories have amazing new characters and vast worlds to explore. That’s what it has always been about for me—new stories, new voices, new possibilities. We’re creating a new generation of DC Vertigo classics for readers of all genres.”

The DC Vertigo brand will expand its slate with seven new series: Border Town, Hex Wives, American Carnage, Goddess Mode, High Level,  Safe Sex, and Second Coming.

Okay… so who are these exciting new voices and what are these sophisticated stories?

  • “When a crack in the border between worlds releases an army of monsters from Mexican folklore into the small town of Devil’s Fork, Arizona, the residents blame the ensuing weirdness—the shared nightmares, the otherworldly radio transmissions, the mysterious goat mutilations—on “God-dang illegals.” With racial tensions supernaturally charged, it’s up to new kid in town Frank Dominguez and a motley crew of high school misfits to discover what’s REALLY going on.”
  •  “The women are too powerful. They must be tamed.” A malevolent conspiracy of men brainwashes a coven of witches to be subservient, suburban housewives. But it’s only a matter of time before the women remember their power…
  • “In this thrilling crime saga, disgraced FBI agent Richard Wright, who is biracial but can pass for white, goes undercover in a white supremacist group believed to be responsible for the death of a fellow agent.”
  • “In a near future where all of humanity’s needs are administered by a godlike A.I., it’s one young woman’s horrible job to do tech support on it. But when Cassandra finds herself violently drawn into a hidden and deadly digital world beneath our own, she discovers a group of super-powered women and horrific monsters locked in a secret war for the cheat codes to reality.”
  • “Hundreds of years after the world ended and human society was rebuilt from scratch, a self-interested smuggler with a price on her head is forced to traverse a new continent of danger and mystery to deliver a child messiah to High Level, a mythical city at the top of the world from which no one has ever returned.”
  • “A dystopian sci-fi thriller about a ragtag team of sex workers fighting for the freedom to love in a world where sexual pleasure is monitored, regulated and policed by the government.”
  • “God sends Jesus to Earth in hopes that he will learn the family trade from Sun-Man, an all-powerful superhero, who is like the varsity quarterback son God never had. But, upon his return to Earth, Christ is appalled to discover what has become of his Gospel and vows to set the record right.”

Translation: Anti-American, Feminism, Anti-American, LITERALLY WHO, Feminism, LBGTQWTF, Anti-Christian. And the covers are even worse than the descriptions.

O, the pathos! O, the courage! O, the bigoted cruelty of those faceless white men trying to stand in the way of forbidden multiracial same-sex love because hate!

This continued descent of the comics industry into total SJW degeneracy, both moral and intellectual, is precisely why we created Alt★Hero in the first place. It’s also why Alt★Hero is already generating legitimate interest from film companies, serious enough that we’re going to have a closed Brainstorm next week to discuss it, followed by an open Brainstorm to allow other Arkhaven backers to support what is presently conceived as a live action movie.

In the meantime, single-copy sales are already down 10.12{4f6295af0cad0fe69096a10ccaf8fdcb16394e0084ebb0d54ed184c513254fa3} for the year, picking up steam from last year’s 9.69{4f6295af0cad0fe69096a10ccaf8fdcb16394e0084ebb0d54ed184c513254fa3} decline.

Today will see the release of Diamond’s figures for direct market orders in May 2018. We haven’t had the figures yet but we can speculate. The big shock to many will be the expected poor performance of Man Of Steel #1. Brian Bendis‘ first full-length story for DC Comics with A-List artists Ivan Reis and Joe Prado. And an extra five-figure order from DC Comics itself for their own comics through Diamond, for use at comic shows through the year won’t have saved it from being beaten by Marvel launches and DC Comics rivals. 

Of course, Disney/Marvel isn’t about to take this challenge from DC lying down. Disney Wars “writer” Chuck Wendig promptly took up the gauntlet.
