Of course these days the fan base isn't the same; - its very divided. Rich has been in limbo for 5 years; only popping up in GOTG in a story universally condemmed by most of us. New Nova, Sam Alexander hasn't been received well - but has his own fanbase and same will go for new arrivals Rael Rider and Awen. The new status quo has divided fans so much that sadly former friends and now on separate battlefronts with sites throwing grav pulses and allowing the divide to get wider and wider. Yet I think that can be put aside - at least for one day a year.
I recently saw the FB post of a kid drawing Nova Prime in chalk on a pavement (nee Sidewalk!) and it was really touching. Deviant Art, FB, Tumblr have highly active Nova fan base from contributors across the globe. So maybe this September 1st, the 39th Anniversary we can declare it Nova Day; and show how united we are, put certain differences aside for at least 24hrs - not too hard to do - so Nova Prime, Nova619, Rael Rider, Awen, Sam, Nova0.0 or even Pickachu Nova fans can come together and see what goes. Worth thinking about?

: wants to do a third volume to mark the 40th;
