Dear Ike Perlmutter: Bring Back Richard Rider As Nova


I think Marvel Cosmic fans have had enough of the Axel Alonso, Brian Michael Bendis, Jeph Loeb and the Stephen Wacker nonsense that we have been force fed since 2011.

The new Sam Alexander Nova as well as the Guardians of the Galaxy is a complete insult to any fan that read the previous run.

And what's also an insult is the way that Marvel reacts to the fans that actually want to spend their hard earned money on a Marvel comic.

Case in point, is Marvel Editor Stephen Wacker who regularly harasses fans at the ComicBookResources message boards.

I can't understand how someone is his position acts so unprofessional and rude toward comic book enthusiasts.

I also can't understand how any of the fans would continue to buy anything he edits (Spider-Man, Nova, Daredevil, Guardians of the Galaxy, Thanos).

I know I don't and haven't for over a year.

Well, Wacker has been at it again, in a thread over at CBR, attacking people and their conversations about Richard Rider.

Not sure what the guy is thinking as with all the money Marvel did spent on promotion hasn't paid off as the current Nova series is actually selling less than the previous Abnett and Lanning run, which didn't get the costly writer, artist and PR campaign. 

From a business perspective, the new Nova by Stephen Wacker can't be looked at anything other than a big-time failure.

DnA had a loyal following; just think with all the money Marvel spent on Wacker's book, how well it may have done, and how successful it would have been.
