Patreon Post + #ComicsGate

Hey everyone, just dropping by to leave a couple of links.

First of all, I’ve put up a new post on Patreon, so if you’re interested in paying me for all this nonsense, you can go do that and then read it. In it, I talk a little bit about Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core and how excited I am about the analysis of it that I’m doing. It’s gay, guys. It’s so gay.

Also, #ComicsGate is still a thing, I guess. Because some people still think that comics were better when they were all about white dudes fighting the most uncontroversial supervillains, forever, and ever, and ever. Despite the fact that this prelapsarian, apolitical version of comics never existed anywhere except in their own heads.


Patreon + Tweaking Blog Subject Matter

Me! Technically, I’ve had one for a while, but I’ve spent the last six months trying to figure out how to come up with consistent content for it. Finally, it occurred to me that the best thing for me as a creator and for an audience of patrons would be to use Patreon as a sort of accountability system.

Basically, I’m going to try and use Patreon as my daily work journal. When I’m working on a post — for example, I have an essay in the queue about temporal inconsistencies in the X-Men movies — I’ll post ‘WIP Updates’ to show what I’m working on that day. Essays like that one will also go up on Patreon three days before I’ll post them here, too.

Obviously, my news reporting will still be over at Capeless Crusader, because I love them over there.

Another sort of big thing that’s going to be happening is this: I’m expanding the scope of this blog. Superhero media is no longer going to be the only focus, and instead, I’ll be drawing from science fiction, fantasy, and horror as well. Additionally, I will also be covering a limited amount of video game stuff, because I follow a few incredible gaming YouTubers, and I’ve gotten back into gaming a little bit in the last couple of months.

So! We’re making some progress in 2018. Hope you’re all as excited as I am!
