Operation Comic Book Update
October 1, 2009
Hello Fellow Rangers,
October is finally here and the long wait for the comic book and possibly word on the movie and/or Jericho launching with the new Epix Channel is finally here.
Why do we continue to fight on some 18 months after the show was canceled by CBS? It is a logical question. Back in January, Jon Turteltaub announced, after months of silence, that a movie was in the works.
We then had the run of all 29 episodes on the CW and we launched operation Phoenix to get the word out and to get people watching the show and writing to CBS and Epix. We found out at Comic Con, from Dan Shotz, that they were very much aware of the ratings and were both surprised and pleased with how well the show did.
We also found out, from our team at Comic Con, that the folks from Junction and CBS were literally blown away by the fan interest in the comic book, and the numbers that attended the panel discussion and stopped by the DDP booth in San Diego .
Ratkeeper and I have had several communications with a contact from DDP, who is trying to co-ordinate with the fans regarding the comic book. On September 21, 2009,the DDP site took down the subscription links for the 5 and 6 bundled issues. Ratkeeper received a note today that there has been an incredible response to Jericho , and that DDP feels it is due, in large part, to the Fans efforts to spread the word about the comic. DDP has said they are building a new platform to handle the increased volume.
We know that on September 21, 2009, it was announced that Jon Turteltaub's Junction Entertainment signed a two-year overall deal extension at CBS Television Studios to develop series for the Eye.
Why we feel that Jericho is still very much alive is simple, money. Right now in this economy, why is CBS investing money and time in producing a comic book, when most of the networks are producing reality shows which are very cheap to make and produce good returns on investment.
Think about your own situations out there both personally and professionally. Everyone is cutting back, businesses are laying off people, many of us are now paying cash for items, and are doing without non-essential items.
No one is going to invest money and time into just a comic book, especially during the worst economic downturn since WWII, unless there is something else tied to the comic book such as a movie or continuation of the show.
We have been doing Google Searches the past month to see where people are talking about Jericho and the comic book. Surprisingly we continue to see new forums with fresh threads and discussion about Jericho and Season 3 the comic. Many think it is coming back direct to CBS on television and not as a comic book.
We need to continue to drive towards the finish line by continuing to get the word out as we have been doing since Operation Comic Book was launched (check out thread at UHD Board)
We also need to send a postcard or letter each to CBS and Epix just to let them know we are still here you can check out addresses at Operation Phoenix thread at UHD Board as well

Jericho Halloween Murder Mystery
California Ranger Event
It's been 13 months since the September attacks. Life in Jericho is rough and it has been hard to keep spirits up. The little news we receive says civil war is approaching. Major Beck, his men and the rangers have been fortifying the town. Sentry duty is a now a shared responsibility in which all able body citizens participate.
As another Halloween draws near, Gail Green has decided to host a Halloween Party at the Jericho Lodge. Everyone is excited to have a reason to celebrate and costume planning has become the talk of the town.
The day before the party, the town is stunned to find that Old Man Oliver has died a heinous death under the most bizarre circumstances. All sorts of odd clues are showing up and we really need Jake and Hawkins back to figure this out.
Come join us at the Jericho Lodge as we uncover the hints needed to solve the murder!
Date: Sunday,November 1st
Time: 1 p.m. -- 7 p.m.
Location: Jericho Lodge (San Francisco East Bay)
Dress: Costumes encouraged, but not required
This is not the typical murder mystery, in which you need to play a character. Instead you will be trying to aquire hint cards and you solve the mystery by collecting the hints.
Old Man Oliver led a very interesting life and his knowledge about survival and post-apocalyptic life was equal to Hawkins. Alas, Oliver was too phobic, about alien invasions, to help Jericho in it's ti me of need. As we delve into Oliver's past, you will learn a little of what he did and see how broad his knowledge base was. You in turn will take that knowledge and apply it to acquire the hint cards you will need to solve the mystery of Oliver's murder
Some of the hints and sub-plots will be sent out in advance, so please sign up for the special mailing list for the party. You can sign up by e-mailing http://firstname.lastname@example.org say you want to sign up for the Halloween party mailing list.
