They want passionate fans, but they also want fans in numbers. It doesn't matter how passionate a handful of fans are, they will not have as much impact as a larger group.
The thing is, there are probably more Nova fans than Marvel realizes. Until yesterday, I never reached out to Marvel in any way.
We should share and brainstorm ways of getting Marvels attention (and encouraging people to do so). The Return Richard Rider petition was a great idea. Are there other things we can do?
Social media (put things on Facebook). Maybe submit Nova related memes to sites? Etc, etc.
What are things we can do to get noticed better and to encourage others?
: It is funny. Marvel wants passionate fans. And
: Nova fans have actually been the most
: passionate and most verbal for some years!
: Kudos! The sad thing is, our passion has not
: been enough to bring back a hero we all
: loved. Marvel knows we are passionate. But
: it truly seems there is some reason the
: company just does not want to bring Rich
: back. I would truly like to know what it is.
: Is it that creators just don't want to write
: about Richard, is it his name, do they not
: like Richard fans? I would like to know the
: true deal.
: I miss the days we would all be excited when
: we got the new issue of Nova. I remember us
: coming to this forum on Wednesday (what I
: called Nova day) to talk about the
: individual issues. That used to be a lot of

: And thank you! That's more than okay, you've

: between both NMB and CBN and in ways between
: individual fans - in the end the only real

: certain Execs started without naming anyone
: My view remains with Doug, in all as fans
: for Nova we should all be above that,
: irrespective of which Nova we follow first.
: I mean I'm a Doctor Who fan, been a fan

: as the 4th Doctor. Now we're on the 12th
: with Peter Calpaldi but am I disgruntled
: with fans of Matt Smith (11th) or Jon
: Pertwee (3rd0 or Chris Eccestone (9th). Word

: we can all share our views, share our

: That's why Nova Day should be a celebration
: we can all take part in and enjoy in each
