I didn't start reading comics until recently, so I have zero nostalgia for ANY era. I'm interested in characters I like and stories I want to read. And, for the most part, that's what I get.
You say that they are sacrificing innovative stuff (that no one reads) for nostalgia (I assume you are talking about things like Green Lantern) that turn out to be successes. If that's the way you want to look at it, then fine.
