Now that the Joker has officially "returned from the dead" and Harley has been established as a once-again recurring character in Gotham City Sirens, it is well passed due time that DC reunited the crazy couple.
It would seem that DC are at least somewhat aware of how popular the two are as a couple as evidenced in the continued release of complementary collectibles and that they are frequently seen joined in flashbacks, elseworlds and in other media (such as video games).
But fans are sick and tired of seeing them only on the periphery in this way. It's been years since they were properly together within the mainstream continuity and as characters they are far more interesting when they have each other to play off of and further them as characters.
The only way to make DC listen is if we get organised and actively campaign them and make them aware of our desires.
The best way to do that is proactively - to get off our butts and do things OLD-SCHOOL.
DC pay attention to fans' feedback if fans go the extra step to contact them personally. Forget email, forget online petitions, forget just bitching on message boards and in forums - the best way to garner DC's attention is with good, old-fashioned LETTER WRITING!
GUIDELINES FOR LETTER WRITING:
These have been proven to be the most effective way of getting DC to take notice of feedback:
1. WRITE IT ON THE BACK OF A POSTCARD
Think about DC's incoming daily mail. Insane. Don't waste your time or theirs with envelopes - a single piece of paper that can be picked up and its message read instantly is the way to go.
2. KEEP IT SHORT
Hey, if anyone loves to ramble about these two, it's me. You all know that! But DC, by and large, just doesn't care. The creative teams & editors are too busy to read long, rambling, philosophical meta essays. Many DC staff trawl the internet and read fans' websites, but they do that on their own time. SO. Don't carry on. Tell them simply: I miss Joker and Harley being together as a couple. They really add something unique to the Batman world. When will we see them back together again? Soon, I hope!
3. DON'T CRITICISE
Yeah, I'm angry, you're angry, we're all angry. Save it for the internet. Keep it upbeat, light-hearted, friendly. Keep it to the basic information. Mention how much you enjoyed past stories with the two together and how you can't wait to read some more - they're such a great couple and their stories are always so fun and entertaining.
4. SEND IT
Seriously, get up off the couch now, find a postcard and a stamp and do it. Don't talk, take action.
If we FLOOD DC with hundreds of postcards all saying the same thing - PUT JOKER & HARLEY BACK TOGTEHER - they are going to take notice.
WE CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN.
So - let's do so.
