By all intents and purposes Comicsgate was created to help jump start a failing comic book industry. All over the country comic book shops were on a steady decline due to having an abundance of low selling comics. Linking most low selling comics to those with extreme leftist ideologies, comic book fans of different races, ages, genders, and even political beliefs banded together to support stories that didn't have the bias, clichΓ©s, and propaganda normally found in extreme leftist comics. Unfortunately, seeing this as an attack, the extreme left caused massive backlash against Comicsgate by spreading rumors that Comicsgate itself was primarily composed of women hating, racist, alt-right, white supremacists that were against diversity. Not only that, but extreme leftists that worked within the comic book industry targeted people who did not share their beliefs to be fired and or blacklisted from their jobs.
Normie: I've been seeing this pop up in a few places lately, but what's comicsgate?

Comicsgate Opposition: It's a bunch of alt-right incels that tweet about comics in their mom's basement.

Comicsgate Defender: People who support well written stories without all the bias and unnecessary politics.
