: Just wanted to share some thoughts which
: popped into my head regarding the debate as
: to support the new Nova series. I was a huge
: Nova fan and once the original run concluded
: with Nova 25 and then wrapped up with FF and
: Rom I stopped reading comics although I
: would once in a while check out Hulk,Thor
: Spiderman. By chance I stopped into a comic
: shop in 1991 and mentioned to the owner I
: was a Nova fan where he then directed me to
: NW 11-12 which were on the shelves. I
: purchased those and proceeded to hunt down
: issues 1-10 over the next few weeks. I must
: confess that If I had started reading NW
: from the beginning I would not have lasted.
: What with the new suit red/yellow and the
: name Kid Nova I was like WTF have they done
: to Rich!! But the biggest change was the in
: the character himself. In the original run
: Rich was portrayed as much more meek unsure
: of himself as opposed to the brash in your
: face occasional foul mouthed Nova who would
: more often than not jump into a fight and
: have some snappy one liners to go with it.
: In fact the writer Fabian Nicieza mentioned
: this where he said he was bombarded with
: hundreds of letters from Nova fans yelling
: at what was done to their favorite hero. He
: said he had a plan which picking NW up at
: issue 12 I could look back and see a years
: worth of writing in a few weeks time. Rich
: got his original costume back and most fans
: I think liked the new hard ass Rich.
: My point here is we should all give the new
: series at least a few issues to see where it
: is going, the strongest statement in my
: opinion we could make is to support the
: first few issues in the 50-60k range and
: then if it turns out that Timelord is right
: and this just a bait and switch and Rich is
: being used as second fiddle then I will stop
: buying as I think most Rich fans will, but
: what would Alonso and the powers that be say
: if the first few issues are really strong
: but it turns that Rich is being used as a
: bit player I think sales will eventually
: sink back to the 14-15k level.
: Not all change is bad, remember guys
: Abnett/Lanning expanded upon the changes
: which Fab Nic did to Nova. Having said that
: I agree with most things that Timlord/Thanos
: have pointed out. We should definitely give
: the series a chance in the beginning but if
: this is a bait and switch or Rich makes an
: appearance every few issues we must be vocal
: and make our displeasure known.
: Just wanted to give a thank you to the
: creator of Cosmic Book news, Timelord for
: his work and editorials, Doug for creating
: Nova Prime Page, Thanos for Nova Prime
: Forever and Darren I believe for Nova 619.
: Keeping my fingers crossed but I must say I
: think Timelord is right about what the plans
: are for Rich, lets just give it enough time
: to be sure.Nothing against the new Nova
: tried some issues just have never been able
: to get into it.
: If anyone is attending NY Comic Con would
: not a bad idea to press the powers that be
: on Rich's role in the upcoming series.
