DC in VS: Rallying Cry!

Rallying Cry! It's more than a VS card - it's more, even, than Rian Fike's excellent series of articles on

Recently, UDE announced that they were still in negotiations with DC Comics over licensing. UDE is doing the smart thing and going on making sets regardless of what DC is doing, but that means two Marvel sets this year, and no DC sets, and that's pretty undeniably a bad thing.

Why is that a bad thing, you ask? Because if there are no more DC sets, I'll never get my printed Seven Soldiers team affiliation - and that would be terrible.

Anyway, on, we've all been talking. General consensus is that, if we want DC to know that we WANT them back in the game, we have to let them know! Now, we could e-mail them, but e-mails are reliably unreliable. They're better than nothing, but they aren't the best option. It's old-fashioned, but letter-writing campaigns still work best. And who better to go to than the President of DC Comics himself?

Now, a few things. Don't be mean. Don't be angry. Be informative. Be passionate. Be literate. And, just to show that this is a united movement, if you can, throw in a copy of RALLYING CRY, that old DJL common that I'm sure most of you have about 20 of somewhere in your boxes. If you want to throw in a copy of your favorite character, to let them know WHY you care, I fully encourage it - but throwing in a Rallying Cry or 4 makes it a movement.

Hopefully, we'll get a fair number of letters going out. But it's up to YOU to get the word out. If you want DC back, then you'd best get a letter in the mail.

That's all I've gotta say on the matter right now. I got some letter writing to do!
