: Tom Brevoort new blog has come out basically
: bashing the Fight For The Flight campaign,
: though it seems he has not actually looked
: at the site and has assumed that the
: campaign was simply a letter writing
: campaign. I have made a public response.
: What I said in response:
: As the organizer of the Fight For the Flight
: (http://www.save.alphaflight.net/) campaign
: which Mr. Brevoort is commenting on, I feel
: I should make a public response to this. The
: campaign was designed to encourage sales,
: and to give fans an easy means to inform
: Marvel that they support the title. I don't
: know what letters Mr. Brevoort were reading,
: but the majority of the ones I saw go
: through the site were simple respectful
: letters stating that fans had a desire for
: the series to be regular length. Not a sigle
: "irate, venom-filled" letter has
: gone through,
: As for the letters going to the wrong
: address, maybe one of the addresses was the
: wrong one, and I'll take it off, but the
: letters have also been going to officex and
: to Joe Quesada. I certainly am taking no
: offense to you comments Mr. Brevoort, in
: fact by posting this open letter, you have
: shown that the campaign has gained interest,
: attention, and has shown that the book is
: making people talk, yourself included, and
: it's not even on the shelves.
: As for the comment on the site being an
: excersise in futility, I beg to differ. It
: is NOT a petition, if you look at the site
: you can see that very clearly, it's fans
: organizing themselves to support the book,
: and to get people to buy it. The letters are
: an aside simply to let Marvel know that the
: book has fan support.
: So I have respectfully removed
: MHeroes@marvel.com as a recipient of the
: letters. I would have appreciated Mr.
: Brevoort simply informing me that this email
: address was pointless instead of the tone of
: this blog, but heck, he's just raising more
: awareness for the campaign.
: I would be happy to discuss this with you
: privately Mr. Brevoort.
: Thank you,
: Ben Wells
