  The train-wreck that is Vox Day's ridiculous 'Alt-Comics' project seems to be reaching a merciful end. The whole campaign has been a disaster from the beginning; and worse still, it's sabotaged the efforts of real Conservatives to reform the industry from within. 

   Fortunately for real Conservatives, Vox has an astounding history of torpedoing his own projects and getting caught in his own traps. The last couple of months have been especially hard. With Alt-Hero sales plummeting and Vox' inability to capture any market-share whatsoever, he tried some desperate gambits to bail his latest fiasco out of complete oblivion. All of them backfired: from getting a contract with Alex Jones just a week before Jones got himself permanently banned from Youtube; to nearly getting sued by Ethan van Scrivener for blatantly ripping off van Scrivener's Comicsgate hashtag. 

   So then Vox decided to suck more cash from his disciples via a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. To try and lure Q-Anon's into his cult, he offered a six-volume series featuring Q and authored by long washed-up comics industry has-been, Chuck Dixon. Vox already had to recall about 200 issues (probably his entire subscription base) of the first installment because one of  his 'dream team' editors forgot to include the dialogue panels before they were mailed out.

    Things went from bad to worse this week after Vox---who constantly tells his followers to avoid MSM interviews---agreed to be interviewed by Bleeding Cool. To summarize, he basically shot his big mouth off and said things resulting in getting himself banned by Indiegogo. IGG shut down Vox' campaign and refunded all of his disciples' donations---amounting to over $100,000 the last time I checked. 

    Naturally, Vox is blaming everyone but himself for this latest setback. After alienating everyone who is working for genuine reform against the Leftist agenda in contemporary comics, he's howling with good ol' Gamma Rage that none of the reformers recognize his great genius and prefer not to work with him. 

    The fact is that Alt-Hero wasn't---and never did---promote any of the cultural or traditional values that we would like returned to the comics medium. In Alt-Hero 3, for example, the "heroes" responded to the imprisonment of Rebel Girl's parents---not by daring rescues nor by brilliant stratagems: but by kidnapping the parents of their enemies. 

    What a wonderful message for American youth. 

     As for the Q Anon series: well, it's not much better. The first person whom I thought of when seeing this for the first time was the Pizzagate Shooter.

    It just gets stupider yet:

   And those who got comics issues with missing dialogue probably regretted afterwards seeing what they'd missed:

   As much as I've criticized the Q Anon movement, I actually felt sorry for them after reading this. At least Q's followers though had sense enough not to fall for Vox' ploys, which is more than one can say for Vox' Red Pills. 

    It will be interesting to see whether Vox throws up the sponge on this fiasco or not.
