    Langridge's treatment of Thor's relationship with Jane Foster is light years ahead of anything any other writer has ever done with it.

I agree.

    I hope Marvel realizes what a great job he did on the Mighty Avenger and finds a way to bring him back to the character with better marketing surrounding his efforts. The FCBD issue is a step in the right direction.

Yep, it would be nice if Langridge and Samnee got one more shot at it, and I agree that better marketing would definitly help(especially when combined with all the good reviews and good word of mouth the title has gotten). Unfortunately, even with better marketing, the main problem facing the title would still be that not very many people are willing to buy out of continuity, all ages, titles. Not that I don't understand that mentality since even I almost skipped getting this title when it first came out and I almost never pick up any other out of continuity or all ages titles.

You're right about the out-of-continuity/all-ages combination being a bad one for sales (I also did not plan on picking this up until I heard how good it was).

Still, there are probably ways around that. The Mighty Avenger was hurt by appearing at the same time as a bunch of other new Thor titles, so in different circumstances and with a little more fanfare, I could see the sales being significantly better. It's also possible that it doesn't really need to be an ongoing. I'd love to see Landridge come back for a five or six issue mini. If it sells well, do another the following year or whatever.
