Save the Red Shadows!

Postby The Baron » 15 Jul 2007 03:31

Not content with the fantastic http://www.bloodforthebaron.com colouring project, the 21st century's first Action Force comic and his own personal Action Force figure customisations, the unstoppable Jamar Miller is now hellbent on resurrecting the Red Shadows in all their glory!

To this end, we have devised an online petition, specifically requesting Devil's Due publishing to reintroduce the classic Shads we all know and love. Please, please, please take a moment to pledge your support here:

Who knows? With enough interest we may well usher in a Red Shadow renaissance. First they conquer the pages of America's Elite, then the multimedia frenzy of first-person live action gaming, the cartoon series and lifesize replica costumes. Swiftly followed by the leather-bound digest edition of the Battle adventures before the glorious relaunch of the toyline itself, featuring blood red remoulds of every GI Joe toy ever made.

On the back of that I shall launch my career in politics, where I shall curry favour among the young due to the sophistated subliminal brainwashing techniques embedded in the mutlimedia franchise. Within a few short months I will have seized control of the Western hemisphere once my automaton army disguised as innocuous children's toys springs to life. None shall stand in my way on my path to world domination!

Having enslaved the populace to my whim, we shall endeavour to construct a vast armada of Roboskulls intent on conquerng the known galaxy and beyond. These are the glorious first steps towards the Red Shadows' Galactic Dominion. In millennia to come the name Ironblood will reign and remain and I shall be immortal, and I will not forget the names of this list:

Well, we now have a staggering 35 signatures. Surely Devil's Due have no choice but to yield to our unstoppable will.

A new dawn approaches, a blood-red dawn, the Dawn of the Shadows!

Well, 57 comments later and what have we got?

A total victory, that's what.

We asked Devil's Due to bring back the original characters.

We had this cameo:

We asked that Wilder Vaughn be retconned as an older Black Major.

We got this page:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Devil's Due. Thank you for listening to your readers. Thank you for making our dream come true.

This is the attitude that separates the diehard fans from the corporations, this was done for the love of it, rather than for the money. I for one shall continue to support DDP after the GI Joe licence is passed to IDW, their Forgotten Realms is a superb comic.

I would also like to mention that IDW are a similar style of publisher, I have been in touch with them on a number of issues, and have always had a polite, thought-out, enthusiastic reply. I honestly feel that the GI Joe story is in good hands.

DDP knew the writing was on the wall, they could have tied it up with an issue, they could have given up completely, but they decided to go out with a bang. They also chose to honour our wishes, and for that they have my respect.

Thank you.
