Every single ROM fan I know out there has been turned off in one way or another to some degree over what they saw in the preview pages of the zero issue. In essence we've been waiting for decades for something like this and just like every Star Wars movie that's come out since Jedi this new ROM series would not have been possible with out the enduring fandom. I feel like we deserve a book that suites our taste and not that of some millennials who were still in elementary school when 911 happened and thought the Star Wars pre-quels were pretty cool because they never saw the original trilogy.
So I ask you my friends why the reluctance to express your concerns to IDW? Why? What's all this it's "too early to judge" or this "wait and see" approach? The zero issue doesn't come out till early May and the first issue not for another two months after that. If IDW were to respond with some changes for the better thanks to fan feed back wouldn't you want to see that sooner then later in the series? So why is it such a challenge for so many of you to be a little pro-active and simply drop them a line by saying something like "Hey I'm a long time ROM fan and was really excited when you guys released the cover art but not so much when I saw what ROM looked like on the inside". Hit "send" button now, done. Seriously, it's so easy even a cave man can do it, so what's stopping you?
