Well, to say the least – I am quite surprised. As you probably know by now, the current Nova series (featuring both Sam and Rich) is going to be cancelled. Usually Tom Brevoort is pretty snarky, especially when it comes to dissing Rich Rider fans. (Well, he’s generally very snarky, but questions about Rich Rider, were usually met with more snarkiness than usual). So I was a little surprised to read this about the cancellation of the current Nova series, from Tom Brevoort:
…please don’t think I am blaming the audience for the book being cancelled–no one is under any obligation to buy our books. On the contrary, we are under an obligation to make books you will want to buy, so feel free to lay the blame for the cancellation on me.
Every issue there were about 35,000 fans who read every issue of NOVA and GUARDIANS and every issue of every [limited series] that was a part of all of our events. They helped spread the word and they were there along for the ride and never went away, and without them the books would’ve never even existed; there would be no film without those loyal readers.
