As DC Comics has not yet announced a new writer for Legion of Super-Heroes, I feel the time is ripe for a somewhat satirical internet campaign self-promotional effort to get myself a proper creative-creating type of a job.
Thus, my new Internet effort! Every day this month (well, except yesterday, but who starts these things on a Sunday, I ask you) is a celebration! Namely, the “Christopher Bird Should Write The Legion” celebration. In addition to my regular and thoroughly glorious posting schedule, I will be adding a daily graphic to make sure everybody understands how awesome a Legion comic written by moi would be. I furthermore encourage all of you out there in Internet-land to link back to this post (which I’ll be updating with links to the subsequent reasons as I post them) so that Googling “new writer Legion of Super-Heroes” sends people here! And also to sign the petition that each image will link to!
If you folks do all of that, then DC Comics will have no choice but to… well, do whatever they want, actually, but so what. I’m gonna have me some fun with this. Some of my reasons will be slightly silly, some of them are serious ideas I’d actually like to write in the comic, but they’re all – and I guarantee this – stuff about the Legion that is awesome to me. So at least in that, this campaign is one hundred percent honest!
As a Legion fan, I would buy the shit out’ve the book if he got the chance to follow through on his suggestions. Please, DC: Make this happen.
