A Comicgate creator, “Slick Jimmy Love” (government name James Randall Adams), was arrested in Utah on 20 felony counts of downloading child pornography. He is accused of downloading 2,905 pornographic photos of children to his fake iPhone. He even set up folders for the photos, indicating that he didn’t “accidentally” download the 2,905 photos.

I haven’t been keeping up with ComicsGate

I’ve never heard of this person. Then again, I haven’t been paying any attention to Comicsgate. Even though Adams was arrested back in February, news of his arrest didn’t trickle down to the online comics community until a week ago.

People are lying if they now say they’re shocked Slick Jimmy Love would download child porn. Little Girl Lethal, his book on Indiegogo, is creepy. It’s chock-full of images that should be red flags to any non-creepy sex pervs, people who don’t view children as sexual objects.

Do you know who doesn’t have a problem with comic books that sexualize children? The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF). The CBLDF helped defend a man charged with importing comic book child porn into the country. Defending comic book child porn is what they do. According to the former Executive Director of the CBLDF, creepy Charles Brownstein, comic book child porn is protected speech, and obtaining comic book child porn is protected free speech.

Brownstein is the former Executive Director of the CBLDF because of his long-standing history of sexual aggression. One night while attending the November 2005 Mid-Ohio Con on behalf of the CBLDF, Brownstein grouped 30-year-old comic artist Taki Soma.

The CBLDF chose not to do anything about Brownstein’s sexually aggressive behavior. Not really. Brownstein kept his position. He even received substantial raises in the subsequent years. Brownstein both survived and thrived. Charles Brownstein and men like him are the reason your employer makes everyone attend mandatory sexual harassment training.

All that changed in 2020. Brownstein finally began receiving the negative attention he richly deserved.

Why would anyone want a copy of Little Girl Lethal?

Looking at the images on Slick Jimmy Love’s Indiegogo page, I have to wonder why people backed his book. I still believe most people view the sexualized exploitation of children as wrong. I have to believe most people don’t find imagery of sexed-up children titillating. That said, according to the Indiegogo page, 1,215 people paid money to back Little Girl Lethal. It raised a total of $45,251.

At this point, it doesn’t look like any of those backers will be getting their money back or any of the perks associated with Little Girl Lethal. At least some of them seem to realize this fact. Many of them are asking for refunds in the campaign’s comment section. What are the backers of Little Girl Lethal more upset about? That Slick Jimmy Love downloaded child porn or that he was caught?

Again, Little Girl Lethal is not the type of book a normal person would gravitate towards. It takes a certain type of person with certain depraved interests to find a book like Little Girl Lethal appealing.

Personally, I would pay money not to have Little Girl Lethal in my collection. Then again, I would say the same about most Comicsgate books.
