Could it be...the return of the Nova Corps? What is the Worldmind up to, and what will it mean for the future of the Human Rocket and the Nova Corps itself?!

    Much like this week's Guardians of the Galaxy, this issue does a lot to renew my faith in the cosmic line and has me pumped for both Nova and GotG again after some disappointing tiein issues. Great issue with great introductions to several new and interesting characters. Read Full Review

    Nova is a great book, and hopefully the re-creation of the Corps seen at the end of this issue isn't a rush of any plot-lines. Read Full Review
