While I love the past 25 years of stories, it is time to clean up the past and get rid of a lot of the connections between characters that have been created over the years. (Oh..and bring back some characters that are no longer with us)

Now while phil doesnt represent every reader/ fan who wants a reboot, he does represent MANY .
SO WHY Reboot? youd lose more readers than you would gain after about 6 months.
Its been tried many many times and failed
but like I said, do two ongoings, a classic and a reboot, and see which one sells better,
History has shown the classic one will do better, but let the fans decide

It'd be a test of how well sales of one title one cannibalise those of another -- until the movie's out, which is the first point at which you can expect to attract a considerable number of new readers.
Personally as a publisher I'd opt for stories that can fit within existing continuity but primarily can be read as stand-alone material, ........................ ..............
