Operation Comic Book Update

September 25, 2009
Hello Fellow Rangers,

I can not believe a week has passed since the East Coast Ranger Gathering in Baltimore. Lee and Beebull from the UHD Board did a terrific job putting together a great program. We had 22 people total come together filled with great times at the Hilton Garden Inn, to the Baltimore Inner Harbor to going to the Redsox v. Oriels game at Camden yards. I can not tell you what a wonderful time I had meeting so many nice people from as far away as California and Edmonton, Alberta Canada to Beebull and John, both locals of Baltimore.

As we mentioned several months back, one of the best ways we can hold on to and grow the Jericho community is to plan more of these types of local and Regional get-togethers so people have a chance to have some fun and meet people they have meet online. If you are planning a local gathering and would like some help with ideas you can always post on the Save Jericho! Facebook Page, at the UHD Board and we can try and help you out.

October is now less than a week away and that means we are in the home stretch before the comic book for Jericho Season 3 is finally out. We have the final big push to get the word out, get posters up in local community boards at libraries, supermarkets and book stores and download post cards and leave them at local comic book stores.

We still believe that a movie or something similar is in the works. We know the producers were extremely happy with the fan booth at Comic Con and the numbers of Ashcans that were scooped up. Junction just renewed their deal to continue to working with CBS Television Studios for two more years. Epix is set to launch within the next couple of weeks and our DDP contact continues to work with us and pass on our information and ideas to CBS.

No matter where you call home, the Jericho Fandom continues on with the same goal to make sure the story continues and we get our show back. It has been a long journey since May 2007 but many have stayed on the path and many new people have discovered Jericho online or by borrowing someone's DVD set. The journey will be worth it. The comic book is the first step towards the finish line of that journey.

Keep the Faith
