Comicsgate's attempt to use the late Darwyn Cooke for their agenda was despicable because he can't talk back and they attacked his widow Marsha Cooke when she called them out on their fraud & lies: bleedingcool.com/2018/08/25/mar…
Comicsgaters are fascists posing as cryptofascist posing as Conservative Liberals often posing as comic fans. For a less confusing description check this article. It isn't up to date but it's well researched and accurate:
thedailybeast.com/comicsgate-how…
Comicsgaters are haters but want the benefits of popularity. They have been bolstered by many strategicians from Gamergate and Alt Right movements, nearly all of them online groups. So like the Alt Right online groups this would give the impression that they are legion.
But the recent low turn out for Alt Right demonstrations shows their online numbers far exceeds any living fascists in the US. Comicsgate's Trolls may appear to be legion but their Trolls are mostly Sock Puppet/Bots, hundreds of them operated at a time by one operator.
The behaviour pattern of both Comicsgate & Gamergate is identical to the Cambridge Analytica/Palantir political trolls paid for by Mercer & Russe money. This is the new face of public relations & advertising; posing as hordes of 'consumers'.
Which brings us to a recent development, the same (miniscule)political/cultural demographic was responsible for pushing Cernovich's narrative to have James Gunn sacked as Director of the Guardians Of The Galaxy movies.
#Disney and Marvel Entertainment were urged to listen to this "popular uprising " of conservative Trolls and sack James Gunn by none other than the Alt Right fan, Ike Perlmutter, CEO of Marvel Entertainment.
I do not believe Disney/Marvel Entertainment are going to be able to claim insurance on this loss: hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/gu…
Comicgaters' opposition? Feminists, Libtards, Commies, Transexuals, Gays, POC and Muslims. Dogwhistling is the norm(alluding to a minority). But anyone in comics not on their side are “SJW”s (Social Justice Warriors) and normally mentioned with some derision (:
Here's the sort of thing they do; a list of comic creators the misogynist Right drew up to be boycotted. One of the reason you may wish to follow all these people is because this list isn't about boycotting. It's for targetting:
It's a hit list for Alt Right misogynists to harass comic people. Take the example of Ulises Farinas & his company, Buno Books. Check their publications. What relationship do they have to superhero comics?: buno.bigcartel.com/products
All these people are keeping comics alive. Without their opinions we'd still be reading post-McCarthy comics where all the *souper hero* characters sound like Radio Republic adventurers. Logan the Movie would never have happened without these guys exploring the medium.
But you don't want to get into it. You don't need a lot of Alt-Right sexists screaming at you on your Twitter account. You don't have to. But if you appreciate all those creative types trying to keep 50 yr old comic icons fresh you can follow them.
The Alt-Right Comicsgaters misogynists want one thing. They want these guys silenced. But if people keep following the "SJW"s they'll know their voices are valued.
