Comics Alliance posted a humorless web comic mocking GamerGate on April 20th. The comic was written by cartoonist Kate Leth as part of her Kate or Die web comic series. In the comic, titled “What’s in a Name?”, Kate draws a parallel between GamerGate and Voldemort’s followers. You can take a look for yourself below.
Now there’s a lot that can be said about this. First off, notice that the comment section for this web comic was disabled on Comics Alliance. This is a typical anti-GamerGate tactic taken right from Anita Sarkeesian’s playbook. Like many SJW hugboxes, Comics Alliance isn’t interested in hearing out the other side; they simply want to reaffirm what SJWs already believe.
What I also find interesting is that Kate Leth seems to almost welcome attention from GamerGate, as if this was a publicity stunt. As we all know, there’s no such thing as bad press. Assuming that GamerGate is an online horde of anonymous trolls living on Twitter is far from the truth. But I suppose that’s what you get when you write for the SJW hugbox and don’t do your homework. Heck, maybe the comic would have actually been funny if Ms. Leth had done some fact-checking.
Comics Alliance has drawn a lot of heat for being an SJW cesspit. One of their writers, Janelle Asselin, has been extremely vocal in pedaling the SJW agenda through her work there. Examples of her idiocy include this article on the Batgirl cover and this one on the Calgary Expo. If that wasn’t enough, former Comics Alliance editor Andy Khouri now works for DC Comics, which would explain why they’ve suddenly shifted to catering to progressives.
At this point it’s clear that people are being put off by SJW rhetoric and opinions. This phenomenon in comic book writing isn’t just confined to Comics Alliance, but is present on other sites, such as Comic Book Resource. It’s also one of the reasons Reaxxion has begun covering comic books as well as video games.
