No surprises here, but DC doesn't give a shit about this site and it's fans.
Since this site debuted, I've been trying to make contact with DC Comics and DC Direct to simply get on their press list so I can receive press releases, artwork, photos, or anything else that they share freely with the media. I've been ignored at almost every turn. I've emailed DC and DC Direct several times, reached out to Dave Gibbons and John Higgins (who also spoke to DC on my behalf the few times they ignored me). No response, no emails, no phone calls. Nothing.
Christ, when DC Direct refused to send me samples of their movie merch, TFAW.com sent me some freebies.
Warner Bros., Zack Snyder, Dave Gibbons, John Higgins and many others tied to the movie have always been helpful, gracious, kind and incredibly supportive of the site.
DC, however, could give a fuck.
I don't know why they don't care, but soon, I'm not going to care anymore, which is a shame especially for the loyal fans of this site who are interested in Before Watchmen.
It takes a lot of time, effort and energy to update this site, record and transcribe phone interviews, hunt down new interviews, scan the inter webs for any news or other reportable tidbits, go to Cons, etc.
Seriously, I'm not asking for much. First, I just want to be on the press list - get the same treatment that all other media outlets get. Second, I'd like to be considered for, and given some exclusives. Without exclusives we can't attract new fans. Third, it would be nice to get review copies and product - even stuff I can use for giveaways for contests.
Just wanted to vent here and let you guys know where my head is.
