She appears in more than 4 panels and has dialogue with John Stewart i’m going to cryyyyyyyy

did i mention SHE HAS HER OWN SECTOR

I read that and just… WHAT DO YOU THINK WOULD BE HER SECTOR? Oa? The Forgotten Zone where Volkreg is? Imagine. Her “I need to return to my sector” is also a I need to return home to my Razer and our home and our family. She has a sector and a home somewhere, and you know her Blue Lantern has gotta be a part of that home.

OBVIOUSLY IT’S ODYM

Oh goodness! You’re right! Of course it’s Odym! I’d let it slip my mind they lived there now.

Reminder, there is some consciousness within Warner Brothers of the ongoing demand for more GLTAS.

  • We got the Blu-ray release after the series had been off-air for a year. [link]
  • Warner Archive knows we used our buying power to repeatedly create a sell-out situation of the Blu-ray on Amazon. [link]
  • GLTAS was added to the Netflix Instant Streaming library. [link]
  • Giancarlo Volpe (giancarlovolpe​) and Josh Keaton (joshkeaton​) (alongside others) will be appearing on a Warner Archive convention panel at WonderCon this weekend about the Blu-ray release. [link]

Any Fanterns that are going to WonderCon this weekend, please attend the panel — show your support for GLTAS, ask Warner polite questions about if they have any plans to take further advantage of the demand for more GLTAS content and merchandise (the Maquettes are nearly sold out), and show support for our sibling DC Nation shows (like Beware The Batman which will be premiering an unaired episode there).

I will not be at WonderCon this weekend.

Any of my friends who will be and are free Saturday at 11:30am? Please attend this panel and whoop loudly in my stead For Giancarlo, Josh, and all things GLTAS. If someone can ask about if they have any potential plans for giving us more merchandise or content like a release with crew commentary bonus features or even a direct-to-video sequel since the GLTAS fans caused Amazon to sellout 3 times in a week and have pretty much cleaned up stock on what official merchandise there is in the wake of the Blu-ray and Netflix release — I’d appreciate it a lot. Even if they have zero plans now, asking reminds them there’s a market chomping at the figurative bit for stuff to buy.

Also, visit Kevin if you’re in Artist Alley. He’s cool folk.

WonderCon…

Bring on the pain!

Awesome! <3 I hope you love it! I also hope I haven’t spoiled you too terribly!

Be sure to post updates! Your emotional roller coaster should be delightful!

I’ve noticed an alarming trend in the GLTAS and Young Justice communities, in which fans of the latter butt into discussions about the former, even on posts from blogs dedicated to ONLY ONE SHOW. 

Look, I love both shows. I do. But it doesn’t take much to figure out that YJ had less hurdles to jump in terms of reception and merchandising, so jumping in on threads about GLTAS to wail ‘but whAT ABOUT YJ?’ is not only rude but counterproductive. It sends the message that one show has more importance to the fanbase over the other, and it really just makes you look like a self-interested dick.  POINTS TO CONSIDER:

  • CGI still isn’t everyone’s preferred animation style, nor is it the first thing they thing of when they see ‘animated’ on a title. There is a big stigma in the animation industry concerning CGI, where people think a machine does everything and thus it’s less of an art form. A lot of CG cartoons in the past weren’t that popular because the aesthetic was clunky, the textures were awful, or the character animation was subpar, due to the youth of the medium and the demands for fast and cheap production for television. Add to that the fact that many big-budget feature film studios are focusing only on 3D and the consumer often feels like the market is saturated with CG. GLTAS is a complete wonder to look at, both in therms of televised animation and CGI because shit, a CGI Saturday morning cartoon can ACTUALLY look gorgeous.YJ doesn’t have to convince the audience it’s worth watching based on its looks because it’s in 2D, which has governed television animation since the 60’s. People are used to that. 
  • Young Justice had two seasons, a video game follow-up, and tie-in comics. GLTAS only had one season split into two parts, which makes people think it was actually two 13-episode runs. Additionally, their comic book run was cancelled after a handful of issues, and no video game followup/tie-in was ever made. And I might be wrong, but I do recall seeing YJ Happy Meal toys but no GLTAS toys in my area (Puerto Rico), even though both shows got shafted in terms of toy merchandising.
  • The live-action Green Lantern movie was a flop, so many viewers lost interest in anything pertaining to the GL franchise. With YJ, it was like a revamping of Justice League/JLU which a lot of us remember watching as kids, mixed with the appeal of Teen Titans, where the focus was more on the adolescent supers than their adult mentors. So yEAH,  people are gonna be drawn to stuff they’ve watched and liked. 

And look. Both shows got screwed sideways by the network due to shithole publicity and the execs’ refusal to acknowledge more than one target demographic, but come on. Trying to advocate for one show by talking over another is a piss-poor way of gathering support„ especially when one of the shows had less advantages than the other. 

If you want to advocate for Young Justice, that’s great. I want both shows back as much as the next guy because they both still have stories to tell. But don’t do so at the expense of GLTAS. 

</rant>

NOTE: GLTAS did have happy meal toys in the US and a few other countries, but no official toy line, whereas YJ had (I believe) two happy meal toy runs and an official toy line.

You’ve got it correct inbetweenthelineart. YJ had two toy tie in runs with McDonalds (one each season) and GLTAS had one McDonalds tie in run. I’ll admit YJ’s second McD’s run kinda sucked, finger skateboards, but at least it existed. There were also Jollibee’s toy runs for both shows, but as Jollibee’s is a much smaller fast food franchise (at least stateside), I can’t find much on it.

Young Justice had a regular retailer/target-audience-aimed line of toys that got 3 waves of release before it was cancelled on the 4th wave due to poor sales.
