    Another great showing from the book and it's quickly becoming like Captain America and Ultimate SpiderMan a title that's so consistently good, I've begun taking it for granted. Read Full Review

    Nova has been playing second fiddle to Guardian of the Galaxy for a while now. I'm pleased to see the series on an upswing again. I have no doubt that War of Kings will prove beneficial to both books, but I'm even more pleased that Abnett and Lanning have the chance to put Nova back on the map without any outside assistance.

    Comics Recap - Draven Katayama (loudlysilent) Nov 15, 2014

    The art by Federico Santagati and colors by David Curiel are beautiful throughout. I like the backgrounds of outer space on the first page, and the bright fuchsia tshirt worn by the girl who Sam obviously wants to get to know better. I hope Duggan lets JGS students cameo more often in "Nova." Sam remarks to Armor here, "It was nice to just hang, and not have it be a life-or-death emergency." It's fun for readers, too, to receive a simple one-shot story that isn't tied to any larger event or crisis. This is a charming but brief issue that can be enjoyed by readers of all ages.

    Worldmind has recruited thousands more for his brand new Nova Corps and it’s just full on creepy. Richard is back on Earth now that his powers are again and he is understandably having a hard time adjusting. Nova 22 is pretty eventful, as Worldmind is revealed to be controlling his new Nova Corps and Richard is given 48 hours to live due to molecular deconstruction caused by his power loss. While this issue was packed with twists, turns, and shocks, I do miss when this series was set in space.
