Really, it couldn't get much better than this!
: I've taken time to read a lot of the info from
: Marvel and especially from Ramon and
: Loveless in their interviews for the new run
: - and I look forward to reading the one that
: Nova Prime Page's Nova64 will be doing with
: them soon.
: I get the impression that they are at least
: going into this with a certain level of
: commitment and passion - maybe open to
: debate for some fans still in other quarters
: - and certinally not without outcries and
: downright dismissal from others who are even
: now not prepared to give them and the new
: series a shot.
: With the Marvel interview - we get a clear
: indication that they want to do their best
: to bring Rich up to speed with the 5 year
: gap since his "Bendis Demise"
: which i think we all want to move away from
: at Rocket Speed. I am all for seeing new
: character aspects for Rich; as someone who
: does his own version of Rich for Nova619 no
: one can not agree that Rich is a true 3D
: hero, and like anyone who has gone through
: ups and downs its gives folks opportunity to
: see how a character can adjust and
: reintegrate in the period they have lost -
: so I will be very much looking forward to
: see how those who thought Rich had died for
: good react to his return, esp his brother,
: family and superhero associates - esp a
: certain Peter Quill.
: Of course I do have reservations as to
: exactly how the title will share between him
: and Sam- and how they will interact. In a
: way though this was signposted for a long
: time. One thing Marvel will need to do and
: for Loveless and Ramon to build on is that
: Rich/Nova/Nova Prime will have to not be
: relegated to one title; he needs equal
: coverage now - not to become a ersatz Jessie
: Art wise - Ramon I'm fine with, I do like
: the style - it will be jarring to some,
: again controversial with others but it has a
: certain pop-art Steranko feel to it - esp if
: Ramon gets to do cosmic stories. I remember
: seeing his art in the Spiderman limited
: series with early Parker and Clash - there
: he had a very Ditko quality to it whereas
: his work on Farscape was more gritty so he
: can do styles.
: Story wise, well if they are planning to use
: old Nova villians I'm for that - esp if they
: do Thanos (whom Rich has history with that
: needs resolution again from the Bendis
: debacle)and if they do use Doctor Sun, well
: he's a fave of mine as Sun Prime is for
: I will approach this with an open mind - in
: the end its just lovely to have him back,
: new revised duds and hoepfully in a series
: that can, if handled correctly - try and be
: better than the last few. Roll on December!

: The marvel one is even better.
: They mention Thanos and Doctor Sun (!).
: These guys have my support...seem like they
: have done way more research than any other
: writer art team we've seen.
: This isn't some vehicle to "push"
: Sam. This is a true blue well intentioned
: staff and I'm gonna buy the book without any
: --Previous Message--
: This reads very promising. I do actually
: think the idea of a mentor/protege' thing
: has a lot of potential story value. And
: they are acknowledging Rich as a real power
: Sam has always needed someone to teach him
: how to be a hero. Rider's defining
: characteristic is unbending and absolutely
: focus on doing the right thing no matter
: what the personal cost is. Who better to
: teach Sam how to be a real hero?
: And Sam can maybe get Rich to loosen up here
: and there --I can see a lot of humor with
: Rich being gone and not knowing things Sam
: takes for granted.
: --Previous Message--
: CBR had a new interview about the upcoming
: series. I think it sounds really promising.
