Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

A strange thing appeared on a digital billboard in Los Angeles this week, a fan-driven campaign to get a sequel to Robert Rodriguez‘s “Alita: Battle Angel” live-action film. They’re also raising money for charity!

Now yes, we know the video isn’t the best due to the digital banding going on, but we were able to capture 3 of the 4 ads that rotate throughout the day.

This is located on a highly visible corner of Wilshire Blvd in Koreatown, and will run until June 7th.

So, a little background about that campaign, which you can read more about here.

There was a campaign to raise the funds to purchase the ad space on the billboard, which was (according to the fan site) fully-funded within 6 hours. They did continue collecting funds and donated the remainder to charities, which it does seem like the Alita Army is all about.

You can donate to the cause here.
