If you haven't heard of Ethan Van Sciver, he is a 25-year veteran of the comics industry who just recently quit his job at DC comics after recognizing the injection of SJW identity politics was detrimental to the industry. Van Sciver set out to become an independent comic book creator and many of his fans left DC comics when he did. The conservative comic book artist even started a YouTube channel devoted to expressing his insider's take on the current situation of identity politics in comics and films, in particular, Star Wars films.

To prove that he is not alone, Van Sciver decided to revive a comic book that he created called Cyberfrog. Van Sciver took to Indiegogo to crowdfund a sequel to his first Cyberfrog comic called Cyberfrog: Bloodhoney. The goal for the Indiegogo campaign was around $8,000 dollars and promised signed copies of the new comic book to backers along with other memorabilia. Within days, the campaign reached its goal and by the end of the 30 day period of fundraising, it had exceeded half a million dollars for a total of $538,406 in backing, or 6643% of the original goal.

If you want some more insight into why Van Sciver left DC and decided to make his own independent comic you can view his latest video here:

Van Sciver's IndieGoGo campaign said, "I'm thrilled to run this campaign to relaunch CYBERFROG as a 48-page graphic novel! CYBERFROG:BLOODHONEY will be part one of a four-part EPIC story, and I am pouring my heart into it. Having worked at DC COMICS as the artist of GREEN LANTERN REBIRTH, FLASH REBIRTH, SINESTRO CORPS WAR and DCU REBIRTH, I can promise the highest quality and a lot of fun!"

I backed CyberFrog and it’s only the beginning of getting back to just fun escapism. If you haven’t checked out EVS’s YouTube channel you really should.

EVS did great with Cyberfrog but credit for the indie and Comicsgate revolution must go to Diversity & Comics' Richard C. Meyer.
