    I should add that even though Deadpool has been very disappointing, Domino by Gail Simone and Astonishing X-Men under Rosenberg have been incredibly enjoyable.

It says to me that the people that were reading comics just when I was abandoning them are being aimed at.
    As someone who's said on numerous occasions that nostalgia is legitimately dangerous, I will note that Kelly Thompson has made me care about Rogue and Gambit for the first time in my life.

    I freshly ended my monthly buying.
    I am curious about things but it's all trades from here.
    Supporting even B/C list titles monthly means nothing since they are just going to pull this cancel/reboot schtick.

    I think the grudge comes from the push back to anyone new. Be it legacy (Miles) or someone newly created (Mosaic) or someone FINALLY getting a shot (Black Panther, Scarlet Witch, Prowler, Solo).

    No one takes issue with Thor, Iron Man, FF, Hulk, X-Men, Cap America Steve Rodgers, Peter Parker, Punisher or Moon Knight having books or even struggling in sales.

    Folks can have civil conversations about those books, discuss actual CONTENT in said books, encourage others to read said books, be ALLOWED to say they are not interest in the books and not be lectured about it or trade wait for said books.

    As it SHOULD BE WITH EVERY BOOK.

    Everyone else-its World War 3 with reinforcements coming from those who don't read the books. With no amount of logic being used.

    America can't hurt a comic book stores sales if her book is NEVER ordered.
    If Tony Stark's book leaves 25 unsold copies and Moon Girl leave 2-whose hurting business???
    Ms Marvel trades outsell Punisher on Amazon-how is she a failure?
    If I don't have to justify spinoffs for movie guys like Dr Strange. I am not going to do it for Black Panther or GOTG or Carol.

    I think the point Tiamatty is saying-it's like Marvel telling fans like him to leave-the fans who endured all that backlash-thanks for nothing. And despite what some think-those fans DO spend money and it's going to the competition not named DC-who has alienated MANY. Then when Lion Forge, Scout, IDW, Image & Valiant are beating up books like Black Panther, Iron Man & FF-folks wonder why. Remember those fans you chased off? They found new interests. Instead of harassing you to pander to them.

    The issue is where is the balance and not only that the RESPECT for both sides.
    When do we go back to THIS-read what you want to READ?

    Actually, my point was just that I don't care about the classic characters, and the stuff that's exciting me is the stuff that's been going on for the past 3 or 4 years. The slow increase in diversity among creators, the greater willingness to do risky books, the willingness to support formats other than floppies.
