I'm still in the "wait and see camp" but I do think considering the calibre of the writer assigned its unlikely we'll get an Annihilation style book = those days are sadly far behind now.
I very much expect however those folks at Cosmic Book News will consider this a diaster waiting to happen without even bothering to see how the first few issues develop or even when we get some actual bona-fide info on what the actual direction will be. Oh - wait - they already have turned up at NMB and done exactly that. How predictable! And now they'll scuttle back to CBN and report how sarcastic this comment is!
Either way I think this series may well make or break the whole Nova concept once and for all - cause in the end whatever new series comes along - be it feature Rich or Sam it will never satisfy every Nova fan's expectations of what a "perfect" Nova comic is.
Of course when it comes to fan produced Nova - that's a different ball game... I have a little announcement on Friday that may interest some!
: Looks like it. Too bad. This whole era of
: Marvel is a total waste. I wonder sometimes
: what the TPTB at Marvel are still doing
: there, it's obvious at this point that they
: pretty much hate what they're doing and
: comics and the fans in general. Why prolong
: the pain, quit and let someone who cares
: take over.
: revious Message--
: Like I said, bait and switch. This isn't a
: book about Rich. It's yet ANOTHER
: re-launch/re-boot of the failed, deplorable,
: "banned acronym" experiment - this
: time from a comedy writer. Marvel is really
: plumbing the depths this time. Now they're
: trying to cross Deadpool with "banned
: acronym" and the result will be even
: more disgusting and absurd than "banned
: acronym's" books have been thus far. I
: really hope that this is a true bait and
: switch and Rich is just left
: "dead" until "banned
: acronym," Brevoort, Alonso, Bendis, and
: Loeb are just bad memories - and a new crop
: of leaders/writers come to Marvel who will
: bring back a quality Nova product rather
: than this "banned acronym" trash.
: All true fans of Rich - continue the boycott
: and let's make sure this 3rd "banned
: acronym" re-launch makes it to fewer
: than the 11 issues it made it to this time.
