An Exciting Message!

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):

January 22, 2010

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.

ADVENTURES OF POWER is an epic comedy about a mine-worker named Power whose love of drums and lack of musical skill has turned him into the ridiculed "air drummer" of his small town. But when Power's union-leader father calls a strike at the mine, Power discovers an underground subculture of air-drummers who just might hold the key to changing the world. Power's journey across America brings him face-to-face with his town's greatest enemy, and allows him to discover the beat within his own heart. Written by Ari Gold.

As with all RFJ chats featuring a special guest or guests, this chat will be moderated and registration is required to participate.

Special thanks to Mainemom22 for her efforts in organizing this event!

April Edition of Blackjack Fairgrounds Featuring John Stahl Article

The April Edition of the Blackjack Fairgrounds blog carnival has been released! Featured this month is an article by John Stahl titled "Why 'Jericho' Is Special."



John Stahl is no stranger to Future Traditions listeners, having been interviewed in Episode 10. In this article, he speaks to why he feels that Jericho as a television series is so interesting, saying,

"This reminded me of a camp counselor telling me more than 30 years ago that she did not watch television because the people that she knew were more interesting than those who were on television. I would say that this is true of the majority of modern television programs, but that I would love to have a beer with most of the “Jericho” characters and that this group has more “goodness” in them than a large portion of the population in which I would place myself."


At the end of the article are a plethora of links to previous articles John Stahl has written surrounding Jericho. Go check them out!
