    Prior to the last page, I probably would have given this comic an 8 or so, but that final revelation was just excellently done. I didn't see it coming at all, which really says a lot! Read Full Review

    And it's also pleasing to see Andrea DiVito return to the pages of the series he effectively helped jump-start. Nova has lacked a consistent visual tone for too long, but with DiVito on hand this arc has seen serious improvement. While I sometimes have trouble distinguishing one Corpsman from another, the sheer epic scale and vibrant sheen to every page is well-appreciated. If Abnett and Lanning can wrap up the Worldmind mystery and focus their full attention on War of Kings and their hero's new status quo, I'll be a happy camper indeed. Read Full Review

    Andrea DiVito recently joined the creative team on this title as the regular artist, and he's a perfect fit. He boasts a clean, slick but conventional super-hero style that suits the cosmic nature of the action and characters. Still, there's a slightly realistic bent to his work that brings out the characters' humanity. That's important, as it brings this extreme story of super-powers and space wars down to earth, if only just a little. Read Full Review

    While I talk a lot about the negatives of the issue, it was still quite entertaining. Just not perfect or up to the typical Nova standards. I'll still take a "bad" Nova issue over just about any other comic, so it's not a complete wash either. Read Full Review
