Writer, content creator and musician Eric July is bucking woke culture with his first comic book “Isom #1” through his publishing company Rippaverse and leftists on Reddit are tearing their hair out over it.
He has crowdfunded more than $2 million in the first few days of pre-orders for the venture. The comic book was launched on Monday and is a viral success. More than 19,000 people have ordered copies of the forthcoming comic book sensation.
And he did it all on a platform he could not get banned from, according to Bounding Into Comics.
Reddit has officially banned promotional videos for the comic book from certain subreddits for “supporting comics from hate groups.” But Americans love it and July is laughing all the way to the bank and thanking God for his success.

July told Fox News that his comic book company does not support hate groups in the least, “A lot of it has to do with the fact that I am a person that they simply do not like.”
He is a Libertarian and hosts his own podcast. July has appeared on numerous media outlets as a political commentator as well. He asserts that he is “on a mission to spread liberty, speak out against nonsense and work towards a more free and prosperous society.”
The artist believes that Hollywood and entertainment entities are out to “beat people over the head with stuff like social justice” and left-leaning agendas.

“To see the industry go in the direction that it’s gone kind of lights a fire under you,” July commented. “It’s not like it’s getting any better. These people are doubling down on everything that they’re doing no matter how often the fans reject it.”
That sentiment gave birth to Rippaverse.
“I put my money where my mouth is,” July declared. “I just started a comic book company. I told people I’m not beating the audience over the head with my individual political views with this, and that got me called the most ugly names I’ve probably ever been called in my life.”
Leftist comic book "fans" on reddit are in full-blown meltdown mode over the success of the Rippaverse. These people reveal who they are by making every disingenuous excuse they can come up with, and they STILL won't stop us. #rippaverse #isom #WeWillWin #comicbooks pic.twitter.com/urTfjS67I6

Getting his start as a rapper, July moved into cultural commentary in 2015, making videos about the economy, racism, police brutality, and more. His opinions soon caught the attention of Glenn Beck’s The Blaze, where July became a contributor.
“I’m trying to get people thinking more critically about things, get your mind going, and be able to see right through all of it,” July stated, according to the Dallas Observer.
He’s also grown a YouTube channel with nearly 500,000 subscribers, putting him in the top tier of YouTube commentators on culture.
They really can’t stand that a black person can be conservative AND successful writing comics!
Them: If you don’t like it then go create your own. (Knowing full well most ppl can’t financially afford said thing)
EJ: Rippaverse, bitches.
Them: But that’s against the rules! pic.twitter.com/VmLC1yXoSM

Amid racist remarks and political jabs, the young Libertarian says it will not stop him from returning comic books to their roots and what they were meant to be.
July points out that people use comic books to get away from the problems they experience in their everyday lives. They want to enjoy themselves and “get their morale up.”
“I like seeing people be stoked. I like seeing people be happy and enthusiastic about something that is happening in entertainment. The last five, six years, it’s been rough for a lot of people [because] folks have just been holding their nose as they go through and consume whatever entertainment it is that they’re consuming,” he noted to Fox News.
The comic book publisher wants his fans to share their ideas and build friendships with one another.

“We’re seeing success and people are enthusiastic. Customers are enthusiastic and that’s why they hate us,” he asserted. “This is what I do. This is my passion. I’m a comic book lifer.”
“Isom #1” follows the story of Avery Silman, who is a common rancher in Florepark, Texas. He “obtained some unique abilities” and spent a brief time acting as a hero under the moniker Isom.
Things change unexpectedly when he gets a call from his sister about an old friend who has become one of the most feared men in the city. Silman visits his friend and it gets violent as he is sucked into the world of “excepts” or “special beings.”
I may not agree with everything Eric July says, but he worked his ass off to launch The Rippaverse and his huge success should be celebrated, not hated. Also, their hate shows that the "diversity and inclusion" crowd doesn't want to see a black man succeed.

The comic book is 96 pages long. It is the first foray into the Rippaverse Comics universe. July writes the comics, Cliff Richards does the pencil and ink work, Gabe Eltaeb is the artist who does the color layout, and Eric Weathers creates the lettering.
Now, begins the real work, and July is excited over it.
“I want to get books into the hands of the people,” he proclaimed. “This is a blessing. I thank God for this opportunity and all the supporters from all different pockets of the Internet.”
“Isom #1” is available for pre-order on rippaverse.com. The comic book is set to ship in August.
