DC Comics Admit The Fan Campaigns Work, From #PoisonIvyLeague To #SaveConstantine

poisonBleeding Cool once told you how the Batgirl cosplay protest at San Diego Comic Con led to repeated meetings at DC Comics looking at how they could change their comic book line. And that was just one person.

In a end-of-year blogpost, DC Comics admitted that fan protests can make a big difference, highlighting the use of the #PoisonIvyLeague hashtag on Twitter that saw a Poison Ivy mini-series launching in January

“have you looked at the #DCYou hashtag lately? Nearly half of what appears in it is Poison Ivy-related. Fans love the character, and you’d better believe that’s one of the reasons Poison Ivy will be getting her own comic next year.”

They also cite on-line pressure for the reinstatement of the Omega Men series, back from six issue to the full twelve.

Omega Men may not have as many readers as Batman or Justice League, but the ones it has are dedicated and weren’t shy about sharing that dedication on Twitter and Facebook. The outcry was instantaneous and loud, and when DC later reversed the decision and said they’d be giving The Omega Men the full twelve issues that were originally promised, so was the celebration.

And that the fans campaign #SaveConstantine saw the character appearing in Arrow.

The piece concludes,

but if we learned anything this year, it’s that if fans are loud enough and organized enough, plans have a way of changing.

There you go folks, that’s official DC policy now…
