People are tired of degeneracy pushed through poor storytelling and crappy frameworks used for little more than conduits for the Liberal Progressive agenda. Sales for comic books have tanked both digitally and physically thanks to the coronavirus and due to people losing interest in them since most major comic book brands have gone woke. Well, in result of said wokeness, a couple of books produced by Rooster Teeth have been cancelled by DC after going broke.
DC’s collaboration with Rooster Teeth turned out to be short lived, as NewsaRama is reporting that Gen:Lock issue #7 and RWBY issue #7 will be the final for both series. The print runs based on the digital comic book series were supposed to arrive on April 8th and May 6th respectively, but the solicitations were upended when Diamond halted all physical distribution back at the start of April due to the coronavirus.
According to NewsaRama, DC may eventually release the two final issues for the cancelled series as part of a collector’s edition or bundle pack at a later time…
“The publisher does intend for these stories to see print eventually in planned collected editions of both series.”
The news was quickly picked up by YouTube outlet Clownfish TV.
Now typically some people would question what makes these two comics “woke”, and you don’t have to look far to find out.
The lead character in Gen:Lock is black and in the animated web series he’s voiced by Michael B. Jordan. The lead female protagonist is white, voiced by Dakota Fanning. The two leads are in an interracial relationship.
But wait, it gets worse.
Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany was originally supposed to voice a “genderfluid” character name Valentina Romanyszyn who is supposed to be a Russian covert agent. Maslany passed on the role so a mentally ill person who claims they’re “gender non-conforming” could take on the role.
Austin Chronicle explained how Rooster Teeth abandoned logic, common sense, and respect to basic biology to bring the character to life…
“[…] one of the most significant characters in gen:LOCK when it comes to diversity and representation is former Russian special forces operative Valentina “Val” Romanyszyn, as voiced by nonbinary actor Asia Kate Dillon (Orange is the New Black). Romanyszyn was written as gender fluid, and while they are written as feminine-presenting in the show, they have altered their gender performance several times previously (and their avatar in the Ether, the show’s VR environment, is the masculine-presenting Val).
“Lead Producer Sean Murphy explained that, early in the casting process, they had approached Tatiana Maslany, star of Orphan Black. In that show, Maslany had played multiple clones of the same character – including one who was lesbian, and another who was a trans man. Maslany has since said that, while the character of Tony Sawicki was written with the best of intentions, she believes that trans actors should play trans parts, and that’s what she told Rooster Teeth. It was her decision not to take the part, and her encouragement to look to trans actors was what lead them to Dillon.”
Meanwhile, the RWBY brand has sputtered over the years to the point where the only people who seem to be aggressively supporting it are social media crazies with pronouns in their profiles and rainbow flags by their handle.
YouTuber Hero Hei has been documenting the insane descent of the RWBY fandom as the only thing they seem to be latched onto is the hope of full blown LGBTQIA+ relationships to finally spike a nail in the coffin for good, much like She-Ra and the Princesses of Power or Voltron.
In either case, with RWBY‘s quality spiraling into the gutter and Gen:Lock burned the coal and now it’s paying the toll; it was no surprise that the print edition of both comics weren’t worth the paper they were printed on.
As usual, this also means both these properties get a nice little spot on the ever-growing Get Woke, Go Broke Master List.
