the sad part is loeb screwed this all up and now look the book is bombing just wish rich would some how come back
: So the latest news down the pipe in the Saga
: of "Sam Alexander" the new version
: of Nova is that he has been made a Disney
: character in the Infinite series. Sam has
: also had a longstanding role on the Disney
: XD cartoon "Ultimate Spiderman" as
: we all know and is being pimped out more and
: more this summer by Marvel/ Disney. This new
: nova is an "all hands on deck"
: multi tiered plan to prop up a 'commodity'
: in the family friendly Disney/Marvel world.
: So is it not a bit of hypocrisy that Sam
: Alexander is playing a pivotal role in the
: huge Marvel Summer Event Original Sin? This
: is the event that is centered off a giant
: humanoid alien getting his eyes gouged out
: and various people fondling and carrying
: around detached body organs? Is this also
: the event that by the third issue featured a
: main iconic marvel super hero getting
: violently decapitated by a former teen
: sidekick? I wonder how Disney feels about
: this?Family Friendly fare?
: An upcoming solicit for Nova has a picture
: of a black nova (presumably Jesse) sitting
: down at the dinner table with blood
: splattered all over his hands and arms..how
: pleasant and family friendly!
: I've argued that Sam is not really the
: problem, and Duggan is writing a solid book
: ..I stand by that.
: But it is just so hard to forget that Rich
: was never given any of this stuff...and then
: this hypocrisy is mind baffling.
: Does Tom B actually think , as a sane and
: smart man, as a person who basis any sort of
: decsion making off actual data , that Rich
: Rider was EVER given the same opportunities
: as Sam? He clearly did not.
: Look at this cover man:
: As much as it pains me, because it is great
: art there, it makes me sick knowing that
: should be Rich Rider!! He deserved to be
: there. I just can't avoid all these wrongs
: and hypocrisy tainting this new marvel
: cosmic stuff. It's rough because Duggan's a
: good writer and writing a good comic...and
: the art has been very good.
: But for Rider fans, we only get this :
: In the made up land of What IF?
: But fellow Rider Fans...we will
: Always...Always, have this:
: Chin up Rider fans..."this too shall
