It’s no secret of success Eric July Isom campaign #1 It has bothered a lot of professionals in the mainstream comic book industry. With more than $3.2 million raised for his first comic, Rippa has surpassed what most Marvel and DC employees would make in their lives.
Now, Marvel artist Mark Brooks has made an appeal on Twitter to ban Isom #1 colorist Gabe Eltaeb from future San Diego Comic-Con events.
Mark Brooks is an artist who has landed to work on a few covers over recent years, with 3D rendering unsuitable for serial productions at a reasonable pace. He’s spent countless hours tweeting his hatred of the indie creators at ComicsGate, attacking the “Alt-Right Conmen” group for their brave act of telling mainstream publishing that they won’t succumb to the wake-up agenda of their books.
Brooks has spent the past year and a half harassing ComicsGate creators, including Cyberfrog creator Ethan Van Sciver About who made a lot of passive-aggressive tweets. Brooks once claimed to his audience, “He needs you until you’re exhausted, and then he’ll either ignore you or turn on you. Mark my words, that day is coming.”
“I know that Ethan and his followers have tried to convince you that I am a con man out to destroy the comics. The truth is that Ethan is trying to do it.
He also tweeted criticism of Del Keon’s cover of Cyberfrog: Rekt Planet as “no focus,” saying, “It’s over within an inch of his life, and I can’t tell you what the hell is going on.” This drew criticism from fans and other professionals who noted that Brooks’ art has no focal point in his work.
Hundreds of people have commented on Brooks’ weird obsession with #ComicsGate, but in his multiple tweets against the good Gabby, the Marvel artist is acting as if he’s suddenly been attacked. He also unfoundedly suggested that Muhammad represented not only a danger, but a potentially violent threat.
At nearly 800 words, Mark Brooks paints himself as a victim, ignoring to mention how he stabbed and urged #ComicsGate creators, even small creators like Lord Finatra, A musician who has just over 500 subscribers on YouTubewho was talking about writing a satirical book on Cyberfrog called “RoboChode”.
Brooks threatened copyright ownership of the RoboChode in a Discord message. He told Finatra, “You weren’t very smart about the RoboChode…for $187, I copyrighted the name and photo within 20 minutes.” While harassing Vinatra, Brooks put the YouTuber on the spotlight even more because he claimed to have offered a helping hand.
With Eltaeb, Brooks reacted to a photo posted by the creator of Truth, Justice, and The American Way where he can be seen in front of Brooks’ joint booth at the SDCC while Brooks is not there. At the time Tayeb wrote: “I haven’t found my little Marche. Maybe tomorrow???” Including #comicsgate and sharing the photo of the booth.
Brooks considered his threat and claimed that he called security at the event.
It’s unclear why it was assumed that a longtime industry professional paused to say hi was a threat. Some fans have noted that Mark Brooks is Caucasian and Tayeb is Hispanic, so there may be some level of racial bias.
Brooks also said, “I hope that’s the end of it but I’m also worried about appearing at the conference in the future. This person doesn’t seem stable. If he’s attending a conference as a guest or guest, I won’t be there.”
This statement is an implicit threat that San Diego Comic-Con should either ban the long-time industry professional from attending – who has no history of violence – or Mark Brooks will attempt to damage the event.
He did not stop trying to harass Muhammad outside conventions, though, and said he extends the same threat to all the conferences he attends.
“I am alerting all my conference contacts that this will be the case from now on. If this person harasss you or seeks to intimidate you, I advise you to do the same. Document everything,” Brooks will continue to state.
Conservative content creators like Mohamed El Tayeb They should deal with this kind of harassment regularly because they have taken a political stand against the mob – much alive within the industry – who want to destroy all opposition. With Rippa and ComicsGate making far more money on their campaigns than these Marvel/DC artists are making, it’s become an embarrassment to mainstream publishing, causing artists like Brooks to be criticized with unflattering statements.
We’ve seen similar attempts in the past with agreements that annoy creators like Richard C. Mayer, Mike S. Miller, Larry Correa, and others.
Conventions must stand strong against bullying creators because of their religion or political affiliation. There is no place in conventions for harassers like Brooks who can’t handle being in the same place as other Americans think and vote differently than they do. Storyboards for everyone.
