RC's Gateway 2 Comics

As a consumer and customer, I have been finding my self watching more YouTube videos and shows than I do with Hollywood movies and tv shows. I would much rather watch Friday Night Tights than the CW. I would much rather watch the JACK Show than Comedy Central. Is this something that is common among people? I certainly think so.

Here's a video for anyone out there who might want to take a couple minutes and watch the ever-changing colors of these jellyfish continuously swimming in a circle.

Is it time to surrender our favorite franchises? This was a question that I heard on one of Nerdrotic's livestreams, and it got me thinking. I have already fallen away from Star Wars, a franchise that I loved throughout my childhood, so is it time to do the same to other franchises? Let me know your thoughts down below.

I don't usually get personal when it comes to videos, but I figured I would give you all a peek into how 2020 and the lockdown have affected me. I began 2020 driving in to work every weekday, coming home, and relaxing until the end of the day. When the work from home orders came, the days became super boring. To pass my time during the workday, I discovered new channels on YouTube, like ComicArtisProSecrets and Nerdrotic, that drew me into the comic and pop culture scene. They drove me to reboot my channel from what it had been before and even to evolve my art as well. Now, as a chaotic 2020 nears its end, I am looking to make my own comic book and build my social media presence. I hope you all are enjoying the videos and I hope to bring you all on my journey.

When you take a look at what comic professionals are doing, it seems like there are too many of them who are trying to use their comics to try to get into the movie industry, like Hollywood or Netflix. This is a bad idea, especially when the comics they are making are not really selling like hot cakes. Here is why they should stick to trying to make good stories.

Do awards even matter any more? I have been noticing over the past several years that the comics, movies, and music that a majority of people like are not the ones that are being given awards. Movies are made as Oscar-bait. Comics that no one buys are given Eisner awards just to wallow in obscurity. This video covers why I believe that these awards do not matter anymore.

As a fan of comics and someone who wants to make his own comics at some point in the future, I have to ask myself, why should someone get into comics? If I take a look at the mainstream industry, it would be because that person wants to push politics or some sort of agenda. Why should someone ACTUALLY get into comics? Passion and profit. Here are my expanded thoughts on it.

After a couple weeks of not posting videos, I have finally come back! I finally found an app that is able to record my iPad screen, so hopefully I will be able to share more art pieces that I am working on. Hope you all enjoy it!

If you follow everything going on in the comic book industry, you will see so-called comic professionals constantly berating customers and other comic creators. These professionals will actively try to shut down the successes of others because their success depends on the failures of others. Look at Comicsgate creators and indie creators. They all help each other and if they succeed, then the movement succeeds. They don't base their successes off the failures of the mainstream comic industry. They let the industry destroy themselves. What do you think of this tweet by Peter Simeti? I thought it was actually quite enlightening. Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below.

As if I couldn't throw my support behind another Twitter DC hashtag. Unfortunately, Joel Schumacher passed away a couple months ago and rumors started circulating that there was a different cut of his Batman Forever. This was brought to my attention by Geeks and Gamers Twitter announcement and I figured it would certainly be something that could be interesting!

Just when I thought the Brie Larson stuff would end, it just kept going. Now, the Captain Marvel star wants to play Samus Aran in a Metroid movie. Nintendo, for all of your fans' sakes, please do some extensive searching before you contemplate casting her. If she's available, go with Emily Blunt. You need someone who can act through a mask and actually convey emotion. Nintendo... just please.

And now we see the next step in the collapse of Dynamite Entertainment. The company has issued a statement in addition to he statement that they made on Twitter about Cecil's cover. This one highlights even more that the company is severing any ties that they had with Comicsgate. Unfortunately for them, they have now also alienated their paying fans that stood up for them when they decided to produce Cecil's cover. Now, those fans are outraged because they have been betrayed by the very people that they defended. Leave your thoughts down in the comment section on what you think of the situation!

So this movie has now been delayed several times over several years. This movie still has not been released. And yet, Josh Boone wants a trilogy. Best of luck to him, but I really do not think that will happen. When I looked at the trailer, I was interested, but I don't even know any more. What are your thoughts? Do you want a trilogy or would you rather just see the first movie?

Why is Marvel not using the original Captain America for their advertisements? With Steve Rogers and now Sam Wilson being featured prominently in the MCU, it baffles me as to why they are not being featured as part of the comics advertisements. These are the characters that regular fans know, not the characters shown in the actual ad which only hardcore comic fans would know. With these being obscure characters, Marvel may be making a mistake and not bringing in the amount of eyeballs that they could.

Brie Larson's YouTube channel has already fallen in views and is in danger of failing. If you take a look at her first video, which easily blew past a million views (mainly from people intrigued at the trainwreck), you would think that she would be able to hold onto a similar amount of views for her next video. Turns out that she did not. Her latest video has less than 100k views as of the time of this recording. Small channels that haven't been bolstered by mainstream media have more views than her! What are your thoughts on her channel?

Do not contact anyone mentioned in this video.
Tom King, a DC writer, decided to attack Korean American artist Jae Lee, the artist for DC's Rorschach variant cover and also Cyberfrog Rekt Planet. This is an utterly disgusting act on the part of comic industry "professionals" and highlights even more why this industry is eating itself. Jae Lee is in the business of making money and furthering his career and taking care of his future. The people who have attacked him and continue to attack him are more concerned with pushing agendas and hatred than actually making money.

If for any reason Jae Lee is reading this, please know that I am praying for you and I genuinely hope that you will remain a successful artist. You deserve to be making money in the industry and I hope you keep doing so.

For those of you who do want to support Jae, I have included a link to his website so that you may see more of his fantastic art. Unfortunately, I believe I may have been mistaken in my video if I referred to his site as a store, but it is the closest thing I could find. Here is the link.

This is my review of the second book in Adam Post's College of the Dead, titled Graduation Day. This one, unlike the first book, is in color, which I think is a massive upgrade. I also really enjoyed the story, so in my opinion, Adam Post is on a roll. I'm looking forward to reading the the next book when it comes out! Below is a link to his Indiegogo campaign if you would like to check it out.

And because he has another campaign coming, here is a link to that one, called The Mermaids.

I'm in the very small minority of people who actually enjoyed the Suicide Squad movie, and as an advocate for the #ReleasetheSnyderCut movement, I also want to throw my weight behind the #ReleasetheAyerCut for this underappreciated movie. With David Ayer dropping info on Twitter about what the movie COULD have been, it has piqued my curiosity. I have seen the theatrical cut of the movie and one other cut that the Bluray includes, but the original vision of the director would be a treat to witness. What are your thoughts on the possibly getting the original cut of the movie released? Let me know down in the comments below.

Dynamite Comics has now pulled down Cecil's variant cover for Vampirella, showing that they will give in to cancel culture and are no longer dependable to Comicsgate creators. Because of this, they now have outrage hitting them from both sides of the aisle. Meanwhile, Cecil has repurposed the cover by changing the characters to Heather Swain and Lilith (better options than Vampirella and Red Sonja in my opinion) and is currently over $200,000 on his Indiegogo campaign!
(Video was filmed before Cecil reached the 200K marker. Congratulations, Cecil!)

What did I say in my first video about the Batwoman recast? I said that people would not be satisfied with the casting choice, and lo and behold, they are not satisfied with the casting. However, this is more an issue with how the character of Ryan Wilder is described rather than the actress playing her. These people will never learn.

Birds of Prey 2 has supposedly been cancelled by Warner Bros as Margot Robbie and the movie's screenwriter sign on to Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Now, keep in mind that this same screenwriter and actress were a huge part of a massive box office disappointment, that being Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of Harley Quinn... or was it Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey? Either way, box office disappointment.

During my sneak peek video, I let you all know that I would be receiving a new art book of Bruce Timm's artwork. Unfortunately, it was not what I was thinking it would be. In the video, I show the art that I was expecting, but the book focuses more on the "good girl" artwork of this legendary artist. Don't get me wrong, it's still fantastic art, just not what I was expecting.

The CW has at long last found a new actress to play Batwoman in light of Ruby Rose's sudden departure from the show at the end of season one. First off, congratulations to Javicia Leslie on landing the role. Have fun with the role while you can because I have a feeling that the show will not last much longer. Season one had constantly dropping ratings and an ever diminishing fanbase. Unfortunately, the CW hasn't learned that going woke will not save them from going broke. What made them think a season two would be any better?

As a fan of zombie stories, Adam Post's Indiegogo campaign for the College of the Dead Graduation Day stuck out to me as something that might be something worth checking out. With this campaign, I was able to also purchase the first book in the series, the black and white comic titled College of the Dead. The comic has fantastic art, even though I am not usually one to like that kind of coloring (or lack of coloring) scheme. Without spoiling anything, the story is quite unique and keeps you engaged throughout.

Here is a link to Adam Post's College of the Dead Graduation Day Indiegogo campaign. Check it out if you think this comic appeals to you!

What is up, everybody? My name is RC, and welcome to my Gateway 2 Comics!

I am a comic artist and fiction writer with several published novels. Ever since I was young, I have enjoyed reading comic books and watching Saturday morning cartoons, specifically the ones that revolved around superheroes. With the rise of self-published and crowdfunded comics, I want to try to jump into that industry and I hope you will all follow along on my journey. On this channel, I will be focusing on several different subjects: comics themselves, art tutorials, my journey into comics, and events that are shaping the comic industry today.

I hope you all enjoy the show!
