    Comic Book Bin - Nathan Madison May 31, 2009

    Twenty-five issues into its run, and Nova has not slowed down in the least. Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning have made the cosmic sector of the Marvel Universe all their own, with the Annihilation titles, the current War of Kings event, and monthly series, such as Nova. Throughout this title's run, Abnett and Lanning have attempted, and succeeded, in bringing the title character into some of the most important recent events of the Marvel Universe, while providing said character with his own unique voice and personality. Kevin Sharpe's pencils are only enhanced further by the final touches of inkers Jeffery Huet and Nelson Pereira. Nova has always been a series of superb quality, in every possible way, and this issue does nothing to sully that record. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Jim Jun 1, 2009

    Nova #25 was another excellent issue in an excellent series. If you are not already buying this, run out and add it to your pull list. This is one of my favorite series being published today. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt May 29, 2009

    This is an extremely fun issue with some great writing that is hindered a bit by the serviceable art. Still, even though the art kept it from taking the Top Spot, this is a cant miss book. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 27, 2009

    This issue feels like a culmination of many of the threads Abentt and Lanning have been working with over the past two years. I'm very interested to see where they go from here, even if War of Kings will likely dominate the proceedings over the summer. The writers have shown no problem making the most of big events when it comes to Nova, and I see no reason to believe War of Kings will prove any different. Read Full Review

    Well-done, ominous stuff from Abnett and Lanning, and t's good to see Rich back in the blue and gold saddle again. Read Full Review

    This was definitely a good comic book, one I'd have no problem recommending, but not quite at the level of greatness this series has attained before. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren May 28, 2009

    While I liked the ending and the fact Richard is back as Nova, the issue didn't really click for me. Just too much of the inner turmoil mumbo jumbo type of storytelling solutions that I don't particularly care for. Still, it's Nova, so even an average issue is still damn good. Read Full Review
