Thanks for the message Wil! yeah part of the decision is due to the ongoing angst regarding the whole Rich/Sam division - to which i felt 619 being part of CBN wasn't in the long term healthy for it. However the other reason was more personal due to CBN's treatment of a fellow contributor to 619 who did stuff for CBN for a good few years who was - put it mildly - asked to leave in a way I felt was handled wrongly by the CBN admin. CBN remained unapologetic over how it was done and so the writing was on the wall for me staying there and contributing after 4 years. Its a shame - lot of good folk at CBN but sadly one who belongs with Quill and Co in GOTG. What did Rhomann Dey call them?
: Sorry to hear. I will remain very negative
: about Sam Alexander and will continue to be
: so towards the character. I dislike being
: negative to Black Nova fans and USM
: "Nova" fans but I can not just
: stand idly by while Richard Rider gets the
: terrible disrespectful dismissal treatment
: from Marvel Comics, Marvel Animation, and
: even Marvel Studios. I am taking a stand for
: the Richard Rider character. Call it
: "extremist" or what have you but I
: do not see it that way. I am a US Navy
: veteran and I know what
: "extremism" is. I may not be as
: big a Marvel Cosmic fan as those in Cosmic
: Book News but even I can see and agree that
: what passes as "Marvel Cosmic"
: today is inferior to the work what has been
: done before. Its more about quantity and
: teenage high school popularity contests and
: sacrificing quality and setting standards.
: It is good that Richard Rider is featured in
: your 619 fan fiction and I understand having
: fan art of Sam Alexander as part of the Nova
: Prime DA as well as here on NPP. The Black
: Novas were a good concept but IMHO not
: necessary in Earth-616. Perhaps someday I
: will come to appreciate Sam Alexander but
: that depends what Marvel does with Rich,
: Worldmind, MCU, etc. I am thinking about
: doing some fan art of some Black Novas but
: nothing on Sam.

: Hey all. As of today I have to sadly
: that due to personal disagreements with
: Cosmic Book News and the site's admin -
: Nova619 will no longer be hosted there. Its
: a real shame that the owners of a site that
: professes to be a haven for Marvel Cosmic
: enthusiasts and fans for Rich Rider chooses
: to be so selective and negative when folks
: choose to support other fan sites that do
: their utmost to support great characters
: like Rich Rider. Fear not - Nova619 will be
: hosted at Nova Prime Page and my own Nova
: Prime DA group so for 619 fans look out for
: the Halloween Special in October!
