    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren May 7, 2008

    The introduction of the pyschic Shadow King-like creature was an interesting touch I didn't see coming. It appears, after Nova managed to capture it, it somehow managed to escape while he was helping with evacuations and infect the leader of this planet's people and he was the one who either sabotaged the ships or that he was at least responsible for getting Nova to petition Galactus, sparking the Surfer fight. Not sure where they're going with this subplot, but I'm looking forward to seeing how it plays out. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - M. Staples May 8, 2008

    The art in this issue is spectacular, and helps to convey the epic scope of the story. I especially enjoyed the double splash page of Galactus. Wellington Alves also does a wonderful job of giving “human” facial expressions to non-human characters. Overall, an entertaining read. I'll definitely be back next month to see where this goes. I recommend this to anyone interested in the cosmic corner of the Marvel Universe, especially if they're Silver Surfer fans. Read Full Review

    IGN - Kevin Fuller May 7, 2008

    After a two issue break, Wellinton Alves is back on art for at least the short-term future, and I couldn't be happier. While I've never really disliked any of the various artists on the title, Wellinton Alves is definitely my favorite of the bunch. The figures look great and the facial expressions are spot-on. Most importantly though is that he has knack for making alien settings look unique but still believable, which is a prerequisite for this type of series. Even with the change in focus/direction, my opinion of Nova won't change as long as the art and writing remain this strong. Read Full Review
