We received a message from Redsox1986, and wanted to share it with you! Here's the message, which includes information from an email that was sent by Dan Shotz (One of the Executive Producers and Writers of the Jericho comics):

Hello Fellow Rangers
We have been hearing from many Fans via email, on Facebook and Twitter, exactly how the comic sales are going. We reached out to Dan Shotz and he sent us a response.
Dan Shotz email: 01/21/2010
“There will be more comics after the first chapter... we are trying to build a story structure with the comic that will lend itself to be the plot of a movie down the road.”
“And btw, the first issue - the distributor had a sell out of all three covers... the books are doing great. Good sign. The fandom wants more... so we are working hard to keep it alive.”
We also have heard that the international carrier of the comic has sold out of issue 1 and issue 2 which is great news for the continuation of Jericho.
We continue to see things happening with Epix, several of the major carriers will be starting to carry Epix starting in early April. We also have noticed that Jericho episodes have been removed from Youtube, Netflix and most importantly CBS.com itself, only Season 2 with commentary remains. We feel that this may be tied into Epix as we do not know why they would pull Season 1 from CBS.com as they own the website and the product.
We need to continue to purchase the comics and keep Jericho in the Face of the bean counters at CBS. The fact that CBS has approved more comics after the first chapter is key.
As I have said for almost 2 years this is a long marathon and not a sprint and we need to Keep the Faith.
Continue to purchase the Jericho comics, and stay tuned to Future Traditions for discussion and news surrounding the Jericho fandom as a whole!
