Quality over quantity ?
I'm not saying that a competant new writer couldn't bring in the same type of quality as JMS. But, if it was the case where the book would come out on time, have the same artist and a great writer then I'm sure the title would still get great sales.
The general opinion from the majority of people on this board ( from what I can see ) is that they are just fed up with the book coming out nearly every two months ( If we are lucky ). How many books will that be a year ? 5 ? 6 ? .
I haven't even bought # 601 yet, which means I haven't bought an issue of Thor since January ???????!!!! I just can't be bothered anymore until things change. I never thought I'd feel like this. I mean if the book was crap then my lack of enthusiasm would be obvious, but it's not. Which makes the situation even sadder than what it is.
I'm more excited for BRB: Godhunter than Thor.
Aye or Nay to the Poll.? I'll add up the votes on Monday
1: LATE JMS BOOK
2: ANOTHER WRITER & ARTIST TAKE OVER
3: SECOND BI-MONTHLY TITLES WITH A DIFFERENT TEAM
4: ADD A CO-WRITER ON THE MONTHLY BOOK
5: CANCEL THE BOOK
6: REPLACE THOR WITH BETA RAY BILL ( Just like Incredible Hercules )
Option 4 seems fair.
It's odd, I get this sense that Marvel wants us to start collecting TPB's. If not for their filler issues and multi-cover variants that is. I lose track of the story when I go so long between issues, and sometimes I don't even check my pull section because I am down to just Thor and BRB titles. Good thing I have this site or I might totally forget Thor is still active!
