Eric Powell is on there too. Very comforting considering I like The Goon, but some of it would fit right into the CG narrative.

Yeah, uh, he was going "these new republicans are making Goodô republicans look bad, what happened to the party of Reagan?" awhile back on twitter. Not unexpected, unfortunately, because I saw the same stuff you did probably.

Just what she's said.

It sounds like there's some bad blood there, but assuming it's true, Waid being a douchebag in an unrelated matter wouldn't have much in the way of correlation with this nuisance lawsuit from Meyer. Seems like it muddies the waters.

Your instinct is correct, Bounding into Comics is a comicsgate platform with a history of treating marginalized comics creators very shoddily indeed.

Yeah thatís my guess. This whole thing is pretty much win win for him; if he backs down, Waid once again bullied him and used his wealth and industry friends to do it, and Dickie is the brave underdog who did his best and anyways hereís the new indiegogo campaign please give Dickie more money to own the libs.

Itís possible heís dumb enough to try and ride this out and actually does manage to ride this out long enough to ruin himself, but Iím betting that his plan was to drum up support and the success of Waidís campaign is just going to galvanize the chuds on the other side.

It doesn't matter either way, really.

D&C is going to lose the case. The point of Mark Waid's GFM was to make it so MW wasn't hurt by the unavoidable legal costs of frivolous law suits.

D&C's GFM just takes money out of his fan's hands and burns it. Protects D&C too but leads to the same place: defeat.

In the end, comicsgate will fail like gamergate. The later had more traction. The question is just how long?

Gamergate didn't "fail" though. It might not be as ominous and pervasive a presence as it used to be, but it's been less than half a year since Jessica Price lost her job because of their needling. It's still there, it's still agitating and harrassing even if it isn't as visible, and as the recent GoG thing demonstrates it's dogwhistles and tics still have an active demographic. It's really, really hard to put things like this back in their bottles once they're out, even if major figureheads drop out or lose interest-- I'm certain videogame culture on a whole will be dealing with the sour aftermath of gamergate for years.

Gamergate was a warmup for the current US political climate so by all measures it was incredibly successful.

Like who do we know who's constantly blaming and demonizing journalists and minority voices for any problem while empowering corporations and bigots?

I was just looking forward to Dickie's "Please help, my lawyer took all my money and I can't get my trash comics out to my backers!" fundraiser. I wanted to taste that sweet schadenfreude. Though that could still happen, I have hope.

Itís not a total loss comedy wise, as someone on twitter noticed:

I can only assume this is to keep their dumb as rocks base from getting wise and realizing they arenít as strong as they think, with the added benefit of energizing some marks enough to get them to give up even more money.

Totally legitimate comments from totally legitimate people on Waid's fundraiser. I can see in the donation log that "Patrick" just gave 10 dollars themselves, is it common for people to use fake CC's/chargebacks to fake donate on these things?

I think one of those posts is mocking the other. One says "Anti-CG responses" and the other "CG responses" though I'm not sure who is mocking who here.

They should hire some kind of internationally recognized private investigator to get the bottom of this. If they can get some stealthy sleuths in the local coffee shops I'm sure they can find some incriminating evidence to take this Mark Waid fella down.
