Mob Attempts To Strangle YouTuber’s Breakout Success Upon Ditching SJW-Infested Comics

Jon Del Arroz, The Federalist

When YouTuber Richard C. Meyer launched his crowdfunding effort for his new comic, “Jawbreakers: Lost Souls,” he had no idea it would make more than $250,000 and sell more than 6,300 copies. These numbers place his independent book at the very top of the graphic novel market, something only the biggest Marvel or DC branded books have achieved.

Meyer hired industry veterans Jon Malin and Brett R. Smith, both former Marvel Comics professionals, to draw and color the project, but even with top-tier artistic talent, Jawbreakers sold at these levels more, perhaps because fans wanted to send a message to the comics industry: It’s time to stop force-feeding extreme left-wing politics to customers.

Even with its tremendous success, Jawbreakers’ distributor Antarctic Press said they won’t distribute the series in an ominous post on their Facebook page Friday: “It is the decision of Antarctic Press not to release the comic series Jawbreakers.”

Their backtracking had big implications for Meyer and his team, as the book would no longer be distributed to comic book stores. But there was little they could do about it. Antarctic Press was hit by a storm of industry professionals colluding to try to force conservative-authored competition out of the business, which was followed by several retailers threatening to drop all Antarctic Press books from their shelves if the publisher produced Meyer’s book.

The precedent set is disturbing, but this kind of anti-conservative discrimination has been festering in the comics world for a long time.

In Search Of History

The Reagan Tax Cuts Worked

Thanks to "bracket creep," the inflation of the 1970s pushed millions of taxpayers into higher tax brackets even though their inflation-adjusted incomes were not rising. To help offset this tax increase and also to improve incentives to work, save, and invest, President Reagan proposed sweeping tax rate reductions during the 1980s. What happened? Total tax revenues climbed by 99.4 percent during the 1980s, and the results are even more impressive when looking at what happened to personal income tax revenues. Once the economy received an unambiguous tax cut in January 1983, income tax revenues climbed dramatically, increasing by more than 54 percent by 1989 (28 percent after adjusting for inflation).
