“In my world, I’m a hero.”
Warner Brothers just promoted a bunch of younger employees to higher positions, and this includes the WB Animation department.
Now’s the time to show these young guns what we’re all about. Here’s a list of eight things you can do this week to help promote the cause for Young Justice. Please realize that every little thing counts.
1. Send @WarnerBrosEnt some tweets. They tweet multiple times a day—they are listening. While you’re at it, shoot some at @DCComics and @cartoonnetwork, as well.
2. Leave recommendations and comments on Warner Brother’s posts on their facebook page! If nothing else, this lets some non-fans see the initiate and may cause them to spread the word or at least look up what all the fuss is about, and word-of-mouth is a great tool.
4. Probably the most effective way of communication is to send snail mail. This is a seemingly forgotten initiative and I’m not going to let up on it, because it’s really important. Tell WB and DC why you want a third season, or what Young Justice has done for you.
Warner Brothers’ address: 4000 Warner Blvd Burbank, CA 91522
DC’s address: 1700 Broadway, 7th Fl. New York, NY 10019-5905
5. One of the more obvious solutions, but donate to the SMGO intiative and the more we can get, the better we can tell WB, “I told you so”, and that’s always worth it, even if we don’t meet our goal.
6. Go crazy buying the DVDs, even if you already have them. Blog giveaways are always really nice. Make sure you’re buying directly from a reliable retailer, rather than someone selling used DVDs. Get these from places like Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com, Best Buy, WalMart, and Toys ‘R’ Us (and probably a bunch of other places, too). If they’re out of stock, make sure someone knows you want them to get more in!
7. Wouldn’t it be awesome to get Young Justice #0 on the top seller’s list of DC’s digital comic hub? I sure think so, and if we got enough people to buy in a short amount of time, we’d be there. The sudden influx would probably get DC thinking, even if just a little. I’m sure someone monitors that very closely! If you have a lot of money to spare, or haven’t gotten into the Young Justice comics yet, buy many (or all) issues! Every issue bought counts, and getting DC’s attention is just as important as Warner Brothers’.
8. Preorder Young Justice Legacy! You can get it for Nintendo 3DS, Playstation 3, XBOX 360, and the Wii-U. If you don’t have any of these platforms, it never hurts to just donate 40 buckets, or buy it for a present who does have the platforms.
These are just some things you can do to help out! Feel free to post your own ideas and spread the word!
“The cops are completely baffled. Good thing you asked for my help, it’s a wonder any crimes ever get solved here.” — Damian Wayne, Superman/Batman #77
The more I wish Damian would become his own hero identity and then become Nightwing’s partner and theyd work together forever without any of Bruce or Talia’s crap getting in the way……
But no really. Dick didnt necessarily feel comfortable as Batman and I think, despite the fact that he warmed up to the role, being Robin doesnt make Damian feel completely sure of himself, either. So why cant DC put them in a situation where they can both blossom and grow, together? Idk to me its new and fresh and a beautiful thought… I just wish DC could see this!!!
THERE’S A LITTLE BIRD SOMEBODY SENT DOWN TO EARTH TO LIVE ON THE WIND, BLOWING ON THE WIND, AND HE SLEEPS ON THE WIND. THIS LITTLE BIRD, SOMEBODY SENT. HE FLIES SO HIGH UP IN THE SKY, WAY OUT OF REACH OF HUMAN EYES. LIGHT AND FRAGILE, THIN AND GRACEFUL: AND THE ONLY TIME HE TOUCHES THE GROUND IS WHEN THAT LITTLE BIRD DIES.
Justice League: Trinity War (JL issue #22) starts this July.
I’m really looking forward to Pandora using her box to reset the timeline again (she caused New 52 to happen) and Damian never died. That’s a heck of a way to bring back a dead Robin to life! No Lazarus-induced craziness and whatnot. No Frankenstein. Not even a zombie!
Tomasi’s Batman and XXX (the 5 stages of grief) ends in August, right after Trinity War begins; Snyder, in the meantime, would be still on the Batman Year Zero (dealing with Bruce’s past and not giving a damn about what happens right now); Morrison’s wrapping up Batman Incorporated in issue #13 (this will be the very last issue which also comes out in July). Considering Tomasi’s Batman and Robin run, since its Nobody arc, has been either following Snyder’s storyline or Morrison’s, once the 5 stages have completed he will have to create his own new arc, which I hope would deal with the then concurrent world-wide crisis that is the Trinity War.
And bring Damian back in an awesome way that even Morrison has to eat it.
Don’t let me down, DC!
I’m really looking forward to Trinity War as it is, it would be icing on the damn cake if Damian returned from the dead. Like you said, it’s great timing. I’ll stay hopeful.
We have their attention. The spotlight is on us, the fandoms! This is when we really need to get our stuff together and show them what we’ve got. Not the time to give up and lay down. Basically, we need to show them how vast and diverse we are. They think we couldn’t raise the funds—let’s show them how big we really are!
Remember, stay positive and do not bash or criticize the company. This will only make what seems to be an ever-growing grudge become even larger.
Spread the word! Reblog any and every post regarding keeping up the fight. Don’t let people forget that we’re no where near being done. Pro-campaign graphics and photosets are always a plus, and especially fan art, since that seems to get around pretty quickly.
It’s time to really target the big guys. This means Warner Brother’s facebook. Post in their “recommendations”, and comment on all of their posts, but make sure to say something different and meaningful each time. Spammers will be ignored, most likely.
Tweet @WarnerBrosEnt. It’s hard to ignore these, and if they come in at the hundreds, they’ll have no choice but to hear at least some of us. If possible, try to get some comic “celebrities” in on this initiative.
WB is very active on YouTube. Get their attention by commenting on some of their videos, most particularly, the DC-related movies, since that has some relevance to our cause.
Probably the most effective way to get them to see our cause. Decorate your envelopes, send fun and meaningful things, and get creative. The address is:
Warner Bros. Animation
4000 Warner Blvd., Building 178
Burbank, CA 91522.
