    I probably should have saved this for a Quick Shot review, but I liked the issue so much, I felt like I had to write it today, despite a general inability to express in words how great this issue was. Read Full Review

    All in all, Marvel's cosmic universe is only going to get bigger after Conquest concludes, and Nova has already established itself as a great series on its own. The future looks bright as long as Abnett and Lanning's names are still on the cover, no matter who the artist is (unless that artist is me, then all bets are off). Read Full Review

    Extraordinarily, this is my first issue of Nova and by the end of it, I was drawn into the vast universe by these intimate and relevant characters. They were heroic and engaging, but also very well defined. Warlock was quirky and humorous. Tyro had a youthful bravado coupled with genuine appreciation for what his teacher had taught him. Despite the fact that both of them are the most inhumanly designed aliens, they resonate with the reader and provide good reason for continued reading. Read Full Review

    Nova #12 was an enjoyable read. Nova is such an underrated title. DnA are obviously putting forth a lot of effort on this title. Nova is a nice blend of action and drama. It also is well balanced between darker moments and lighter humorous scenes. Nova is a well rounded title that will appeal to a broad range of readers. If you enjoy cosmic characters and a science fiction themed story then I urge you to give Nova a try. This title is certainly worth the cover price. Read Full Review
