    Nova continues to be a visually interesting book, hangups aside. Its returning to a place I havent seen referenced since the LAST Nova issues, its using Marvels deep and wide cast of bizarre characters to their fullest extent and, most of all, it is a TON of fun to read. Sam Alexander is becoming more likeable with every issue and seeing him take on the mantle of Nova is one of Marvels best cosmic stories and still getting better. Read Full Review

    Nova #14 is a really good entry that stumbles a bit on the visual side but still candidly qualifies for a recommendation from me. Read Full Review

    What's ultimately refreshing about "Nova" is that this is a stealth all-ages book. There's nothing in here that younger readers couldn't handle, but it never feels dumbed-down or too elementary for adults (a trap that many attempted all-ages books fall into). It's not being promoted as one, but at the same time it fits the bill. I'm finding Sam's adventures as Nova entertaining, here, and it doesn't ever feel like it's operating under a limited scope, or pushed off into its own "for younger readers" universe. "Nova" #14 is another successful issue of a strong series. Read Full Review

    Despite these issues, Nova #14 is a lot of fun and I'll take any excuse to get Cosmo back into comics (even if I'd rather be seeing him in Guardians of the Galaxy). Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Novais still one of the strongest all ages books on the stands right now, and it continues to be a struggle to read Duggan's writing without a smile on your face. Based on the cliffhanger, I'm excited to see where the story goes and continue to see Nova and Bill's mentoree/mentor relationship progress. Read Full Review

    The art by guest artist David Baldeon is a fun style that fits the story, but is a style that is reminiscent of the Marvel Adventures line of books that cater to all ages readers. Beta Ray Bill doesn't look as menacing nor as powerful as he could, and the action scenes don't look as dangerous or threatening. The art, while well done, even when compared to main artist Paco Medina's cartoony style, seems one more suited to a book targeted at a younger audience because of the lighter feel. This issue is well put together, but not something I'd recommend as a must read. There seems to be some big plans for Nova in the upcoming months as we get closer to the announced Original Sin storyline. This issue feels like a stepping stone to bigger things to come.
