I buy vinyl records and they have Marvel variant covers for hip hop records now
i like the word "lenticular"
I laughed withing 1/2 a second))) *whispering * I started this gan. . .
As a business consultant, I really have to agree with Mike on the Direct Market perspective. While you're better off not tying the future success of Cyberfrog to comic book stores, you'd significantly benefit from having a presence not only in the LCS's but any retailer that will have you. Your biggest issue lies in the awareness or lack thereof for Cyberfrog and All Caps Comics within the comics market. While your reach on Youtube is great and you have a developed presence on Twitter, most people don't watch Youtube, aren't on Twitter, and have never heard of Indiegogo. I think a conservative guess in terms of how many comic fans have any understanding of what's going on online may at most be 20%. That's 80% of people with which you have no ability to gain access to and provide with a product that they may love, due to their lack of connectivity. I think you always had it right from the beginning when you compared the offering of your books to a movie, going from theaters, to DVD, to on demand, while you offer specialized first edition indiegogos, direct market floppies, and then digital releases. This way your can expand your outreach, improve upon your awareness, and continue to grow your business. You would like All Caps Comics to help employ people with talent and to provide for their families. One way to do that is to grow this company and reach as many people as you possibly can because you've built it off of a base of passion and talent unrivaled by the mainstream industry.
Well if Richard didn't throw away his brand and therefore his fanbase, he might be doing well, too. Oh well, Richard. Your loss, bud. I'm here for anti-SJW content. Comics is secondary or even tertiary. I think Richard really overestimates how much of his audience cares about comics vs winning the culture war.
Nice "Between The Sheets" intro.
Use the Brian Pulido strategy of selling digital and reprints of back issues on every new crowd-funder for your new, latest book.
I'm confused: Aren't the Pieman Prophecies still valid even though it mentions a divorce? I mean, Ethan does have a divorce under his belt. Or, did Mike say it ended with a divorce?
I find your lack of Cecil disturbing.
AOC is a filthy commie. And them teeth tho... Also, #ButterSong.
An industry in its death throes.
I am a frugal spender, and I only backed CFBH last year, but this year is going to see me backing more books this go around. Thanks to all the CG people!
I think it was British Dick Cancer that finally sold me on the book. Sounds horrible, I don't want that!
EVS could do floppy Cyberfrog for pie shops and cafes that sell pies. Expand into the Pie fandom.
Uncle Ethan, if I pay $1 for a comic book, I'm not going to pay $25 for a sequel.
EVS just wondering: would you ever do a commission of a STAR WARS piece featuring REY vs Kylo Ren or somthing from the current trilogy?
Captain Marvel needs to do a Spin-a-rooney because she's the Five Time Reboot Champ! Now, can you dig that....SUCKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!
"I have no butt and I must fart" LOL! Harlan Ellison would approve :)
Total lack of understanding of the market. We want high quality thicc books that look good on our shelves and in our hands. Going back to the 60s will not save the stores. The world has changed.
Unfortunately compromise does not seem possible with this group. Taking it to it's logical conclusion if CG wins everyone is free to make what that want and succeed or fail on their own merits. If the other side wins the dictates apply to everyone. If you want freedom the only logical choice is to join us.Viva la Comicsgate!
No self respecting Audio guy(Sound Guy) uses beats for anything. Grab AKG or Bose. Even Sennheiser or Sony is acceptable. Ditch those over priced garbage headphones
I agree with MIke! I have tried tons of comics because they were only $1 and looked cool and if it was good book would buy more of the series or artist!
3:47 Look at all that female objectification on his wall. REEEEEEEEEEEE
Ethan, are you willing to put Cyberfrog on digital? I can't really "collect" physical comics at the moment.
The GOA is a no-compromise lobby group. Love them!
“More candle shops than comic shops.”Of course there are! I don’t have a pull list at any comic store, but who doesn’t have a pull list including “baked apple crisp” and “ocean breeze” at a local candle shop?
I don't get any notifications
Agree with EVS & Doug. Make them come to you or it’s not special.
The butter licking song 2:06:00
Ethan, those Pitt pens you were talking about at about 13:30... Do they dry out from just use (because of the large amount of ink they use) or will they also dry out if you use them a little bit and then dont use them for a while? And YES, we do care what ink/pens you guys use. I find that stuff fascinating...
It starts with SHIT comics that 20 people across the country wants to buy. It FINISHES with Comic Retailers being literally BLACKMAILED into ordering their PROPAGANDA leaflets.Guarantee this is going to happen very, VERY soon! I really do feel sorry for the poor bastards that went out on a limb, took a loan from the bank to open a business, and make a living celebrating what they enjoy.................NOPE............Thanks to a select 20 or so PIECES OF SHIT, HORRIBLE PEOPLE ON TWITTER, Comic Retailers maybe......MAYBE...have 2 years left.
I'm calling it RIGHT NOW! RIGHT.........FUCKING....NOW! This year's new gimmick......of 2019........Instead of Multiple Variant Covers for comics....Publishers are going to SHAME Comic Stores into ordering their Comics. "Either you order 50 of these Transgendered Wolverine Comics, or your store will be "Outed" as a storefront that peddles in HATE!"Oh hell yea....mark my words, or don't even read this comment all the way, it WILL happen this year regardless....
I had someone the other day telling me straight that they have contacted EVS directly and thinks that Cyberfrog isn’t coming out. These people are nuts. I’m looking forward to getting my copies to show them off. Great content as usual EVS.
First livestream that I’ve been able to watch for a while. I understand why you delete these from your channel because of the YT algorithm but I love it when I can actually catch one of these.
You need a damn cowboy hat Ethan.
Split the difference. Cheap teaser ashcan with a couple pages of cyberfrog.#1 for regular price.
Ah my superchat j just wanted to hear EVS say “Do my Bidding”
I'd donate to the NRA!
I like seeing your face.
