But hey I still love it when certain hardcore Rider fans from Cosmic Book News; the site that also alientates Rider fans that actually go out of their way to keep the Rich Rider alive an' well in fics and comics like Nova619 come along to preach. The only way Rich, other characters that have been savagely maligned and the glory/universe that was Marvel Comics as we grew up with it will ever return is a) the current management gets ousted and b) Disney relenquishes control and stops the continual "kidification" of 616 - which lets face it will be pretty much done and dusted after Secret Wars.
My contemporary pull list for Marvel is now offically down to 4 titles, 8 years ago it was 18. I'm consiged to the fact that by end of 2015 buying present Marvel stuff will be over after collecting Marvel Comics for over 40 years - my collection will still expand, there's still pleaty of classic Marvel stuff out there to find and yes my support for Nova will continue with Nova619 and my chats about the good old days - rather than wasting energy on finding a stragegy to change a status quo that will take a major miracle to change. In short, the market and target audience has changed, Marvel wants to attract a new younger readership to keep it alive for the next 75 years; we're dinosaurs and as such we're pretty much consigned to history, but at least we can keep the Nova Force burning for those that still enjoy the good old days.
