    Non-woke comic book creator Eric July announced that he has raised more than $3.3 million to put out his new comic book, something he called an "alternative to the mainstream" and to the social/political push in the genre.

    The comic creator tweeted, "We're about to be LIVE over on YouTube! Rippaverse is at $3.3 million plus. August plans and more," as he thanked fans for their support of his company. The first book comes out this month through his comic company Rippaverse. He said on his YouTube Tuesday that the book is called "Isom #1" as he explained that "Isom" will be the launching pad for the entire "universe" coming out of his company.

    In a recent show, July talked about "creating something alternative to the mainstream," as he referenced things like "race swap," and "gender swap" issues in comics these days, noting a recent comic book with "they/them" characters. It starts at the 1:33 minute mark here.

    July said he wrote the 96-page book with "pencil and ink" work from comic book artist Cliff Richards. The color work came from colorists Gabe Eltaeb, who previously worked on the Superman series for DC Comics because he had no interest in woke comics.

    "Working on Isom with Eric has been amazing," Eltaeb said. "Eric shares my ideals that we don't want to be anti-woke and attack people. We want to be non-woke. We just want to give people classic superhero action."

    Gabe previously shared that he was finishing out his contract with DC and leaving because he was "tired of this s***. I'm tired of them ruining these characters; they don't have a right to do this."

    "What really pissed me off was saying truth, justice, and a better world," Eltaeb added. "F*** that it was Truth, Justice, and the American way. My Grandpa almost died in World War II; we don't have a right to destroy s*** that people died for to give us. It's a bunch of f***ing nonsense."

    The comic creator previously tweeted about the "meltdown" happening on Reddit over the money he had raised for his non social-political issues. The picture he used showed a character reacting to a comic book that was "Not Political!"

    "Leftist comic book 'fans' on reddit are in full-blown meltdown mode over the success of the Rippaverse," July tweeted after he raised more than $1.5 million for his new comic book company. "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."

    In July, Eric said that what his goal was to "be a part of the solution instead of griping about the problem, so I had the idea, it made sense financially, and it was the perfect time to do it."

    "This American comic book market is still kind of thirsty for this type of material," he added. "They've just been not getting it from the big two," (presumably referring to DC and Marvel comics).
