Earlier today I wrote that progressive comic book professionals were trying to stop the release of Jawbreakers: Lost Souls by Richard Meyer after the INDIEGOGO project surpassed $200,000 yesterday on their final day. Two days after Publisher Antarctic Press announced they planned on releasing the book in September, the publisher has succumbed to relentless pressure from progressives in the industry.
Earlier this week I wrote about Conservative Youtuber Richard Meyer, aka Diversity & Comics crowdfunded INDIEGOGO project Jawbreakers: Lost Souls. At the time of the article posting it had just passed $150,000 in backing. The campaign ended up finishing with a stunning $206,626 and 5,735 backers. Publisher Antarctic Press announced they would publish the comic and several progressive critics began colluding to prevent local comic shops from carrying the book.

The biggest takeaway here is that the next writer of Marvel’s Captain America will be a guy who fundamentally hates America…because that will put butts in seats. Youtuber Yellow Flash has already stated that he will boycott this comic given Coates past comments in which he called 9/11 first responders “Not human” for their playing a part in the oppressive system and referred to “White America” as a “syndicate” designed to “dominate and control our bodies.”
With all the talk about Michelle Wolf who made a name for herself attacking Sarah Huckabee Sanders, I didn’t want to write anything about it because it really isn’t much of a story here. Left-wing comedienne attacks republicans…this happens every night on Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Steven Colbert, Seth Meyer, Trevor Noah, etc.
In a recent interview with Vulture, Actor and Producer Seth Rogen doubled down on his commitment to promote progressive politics in his film and television projects. When asked if his perspective as a white guy not being the most relevant to these larger cultural discussions such as the #MeToo movement (Yes, this was a real question)
