@EyedJeff In Japan, fans routinely print doujins (without crowdfunding) and sell stacks of them at conventions and online. I want to see cartoonist profit margins rise, but something's out of whack if you have to raise five figures to print your first comic book. Shipping is murder tho.
"The evil has been defeated" aftermath: supposed grifter Ethan van Sciver continues to roll out new product, including Starblades and the return of Creed, while anti-comicsgate hero continues to grapple with disappointed backers years after the due date of Icarus and the Sun.
RT @BoundingComics: Power Girl Co-Creator Gerry Conway Wants To See Manga Creators “Taken To Task” For Their “Rampant Sexism and Misogyny”…
@powercomics3k @BoundingComics I said something like this before, but I forgot to accuse him of contributing to the "male gaze". Have to keep up with their virtue signaling vernacular. 😄
@powercomics3k @BoundingComics That's true, but of course if Power Girl embarrasses him then he should take her out of his Twitter bio. He contributed to the male gaze and he should be deeply ashamed of what he did instead of boasting about it! 🧐 I mean, if he wants to be consistent about this at all.
@BoundingComics Poor Gerry. He creates the Punisher, he accidentally appeals to (thundercrash) ALT RIGHT GUN NUT POLICE SUPPORTERS. He creates Power Girl and accidentally appeals to (dramatic sting) WOMEN OBJECTIFYING MISOGYNISTIC INCELS. Maybe he's been in the wrong business all along.
The real fans were never on board with the PP scheme to "fix" comic books. The industry told the actual fans to jump in a lake, because they thought the PP were a new source of revenue. X stops being cool after they "fix" it, so then the PP move on to a new target.
Take out the virtue signal language, there's a bit of a point here: you readers, you give US comics crap for being sexist, yet you prefer sexist manga? That's because the US industry chose to listen to Puritanical Posers who glom onto X when it's cool, demand changes, then leave

@NickMacari13 I don't even need any kind of word processor for writing, I use a text editor and markdown. What I really need is something more like an outliner or organizer, something I can use to sort sketches and ideas. Something like Scrivener, though I'm never quite happy with it.
Ironically, you're more likely to find outright porn inside the books now. I picked some general title out of the sale bin at the grocery store and opened it up to a detailed description of a penis and its insertion adventures. There was no indication from the cover or title.
These are normal paperback covers that you once would see in any mainstream book store. It's bizarre that as access to the creepiest, ugliest, and most degrading porn increases, the more our self-appointed watchdogs treat fun as "misogyny".
@RuneK2015 There are a lot of good options out there. I'm thinking I need to be using something more like Scrivener. It's not formatting I'm worried about so much as keeping notes together and organizing things more long-range.
Fact checkers using their time to debunk old GIFs we've seen for years that people are posting as a joke. Good job, guys! Anything to avoid spending time covering the administration you support.
@StreetYolk There's an another app that did make it through Kickstarter, but it's not free. Looks OK, but not sure if it really addresses what I'd need.
Is Kickstarter a real thing, or a graveyard for unfulfilled projects? Over $37K raised for a comic book writing app, left the backers high and dry in 2016. The comments consist of years of backers demanding refunds.

@Mojyo_justin Don't forget, they've already started! Amazon has already banished some manga titles, so be sure to buy your manga at RightStuf or other distributors that don't censor.
Oh, I think I just figured out what this is about. Cheerleaders for what's become of the US comic book industry had been lumping manga sales in with US trade to make things look not so bad. But manga took all 20 top spots in a recent sales list. Manga's their enemy now. 😄
Non-artist writers have their place in comic books. Calling the shots is not their place. US comic books have been infected by naval-gazing and hand wringing. They have been dulled by the writer's desire to write kitchen scenes for Netflix, and to apologize for the fantastic.
@gerryconway You're not responsible for Power Girl's visual identity, but if she embarrasses you then take her off your bio. The comic book is a visual medium. Thank you for your service, but stay in your lane.
