They got the star wrong on Rich's helmet, but otherwise, it looks great! Looks like we're going to finally get the (cannon) story of what happened to Rich. I'll buy it to show my support for the character, but I've got a feeling GOTG #18 and #19 will be the last 2 Marvel comics I'll be buying.
Unlike a few of you who've been acting like children over this (you know who you are, no names mentioned here) and made all of us Rich fans look bad in the process, I said my piece (which was short and sweet) to Tom once and he knows there's another +1 out there, and I'm letting it go at that.
Richard Rider's Nova has been the gateway comic for me into comic book shops. It's not the first time I've stopped giving money to Marvel, but if the character is offed, then this will be my final farewell. Time to let the character and stories and the company go and move on to other escapisms for when I want to relax. It was a fun ride while it lasted. The new kid Nova just doesn't interest me. It's not the same. I think it was Rich that I identified with more than the Nova persona. Here's hoping I'm wrong, but everything leading up to here that I could find with the exception of one comment when someone asked when Rich would be back and the answer was, What makes you think he isn't already? point to the fact he's dead. Being an Original Sin tie in also means something really bad happened. Seeing as it's Peter's original sin, and not Rich's, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out.
