    Operation Phoenix/Comic Book Update

    March 1, 2011

    Hello Fellow Rangers

    I am writing today to ask for your help. We have heard from Dan and I have reposted his words below. We need to get the word out on the Jericho comic and need to sell out Issues 4-6 and the Redux Issue.

    I know many have moved on from Jericho over the past 3 years. But here we are 3 years later and the Jericho story is continuing. The main reason is its' fans and that Dan Shotz convinced someone (bean counter) at CBS that Jericho is still a viable product.

    How did he do that?, From the numbers we delivered. Our collective efforts, put up the billboard, got the ads in the Hollywood Reporter, got the TV commercial made an placed on Time Warner Cable. We did that together and we can again.

    My guess is that bean counter keeps going back to the numbers, the Nielsen ratings on CBS, the numbers for I-tunes, people who watched on the internet, the CW ratings and the sales of the first 3 issues of the comic.

    If we are to get Jericho back, then we need to get the comics sold and to deliver numbers and we can do that simply and cheaply using the internet, FaceBook, Myspace, and Twitter.

    Recently we have seen things start to turn. CBS Consumer Products has started to answer us and IDW has started to work with us in a more meaningful way. We were told last night by our contact at IDW that Issue # 5 of the comic will be coming out sometime in mid April.

    The release will be after Wondercon in San Francisco and we believe this is significant. They are going to use Wondercon to help promote the comic and Jericho. We have a contingent of over 12 Rangers that will be in attendance at the Jericho Fan Table.

    We have been working on a few things that will help drive sales of the comic and traffic on Facebook. Look for a Major Announcement soon regarding a new fan effort in that regard.

    "Somebody went through a lot of work to get a new publisher and it wasn't for the pennies these comics bring in. CBS stepped in to make things right on the DDP subscriptions and with DDP being broke our subscription money is gone.... you can bet CBS is footing the bill to keep the fans happy.

    It's a drop in the bucket for CBS but they legally were not responsible for DDP going broke and not fulfilling fan orders. I think Dan had a lot to do with pushing CBS to make things right." Fan K6

    We need to get the word out. A simple message that can be left at Save Jericho Face Book Page, can be twittered, left at the IDW Forum and at CBS.

    Message:
    I am John Smith, Baltimore, MD, I purchased the Jericho Comic from IDW and XYZ comics in Baltimore. Bring back Jericho as movie and TV show.

    "The day we have waited for has finally come... IDW is releasing all new issues of Jericho Season 3: Civil War TODAY beginning with Issue 4 which reveals the truth behind John Smith and the September attacks. It is a must read. Also, IDW and CBS shipped out copies to all pre-existing subscribers yesterday. So look out for your copies in the mail. For those who haven't purchased the new issues yet, go to IDWpublishing.com (https://shop.idwpublishing.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=jericho) or to your nearest comic book retailer. Thanks for the never-ending support and enjoy the latest issue."

    Go to drop box-look for CBS Original and then leave message.

    Many years ago the American colonies fought a war for Independence. It took 8 years, their weapons included muskets, cannon, the pen and the printing press. That war was fought and Won by less than 12% of the people.

    Today in Tunisia and Egypt, long standing dictators have fallen. This was accomplished by less than 5% of the people in those respective countries. Their main weapon was Social Media, Face Book, Twitter and Texting. Sound familiar? It should, Jericho's fans invented it. By utilizing the internet and email we were able to bury them in Nuts, faxes, emails and in 3 weeks in late May of 2007 we won the first battle. Now we face another battle and we need everyone to work together more than ever.

    I am asking for your help to get the word out about the Jericho Comic, lets get issues #4 - 6 and Redux sold out and deliver numbers to Dan on Facebook and Twitter that help him and his ally at CBS Consumer Products continue the Jericho story. Are you ready to make History Again?

    Keep the Faith
