    Once of the things I love about reviewing is recommending quality titles, be it an entire series or a single issue. This issue is definitely worth the cover price, whether or not you are a fan of Nova or Marvel Space. This issue is well-written, the action, drama and suspense will keep you on the edge of your seat, and the artwork is simply fantastic. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Jul 24, 2009

    Despite the major issue with the pacing and strange panel choices, this is still a fun read with a great plot and amazing character interaction. The scenes between Blastaar and Nova were fantastic. The ending was a major shock and played out well enough that I can't wait for next month to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Johns and Tomasi may be doing something more ridiculously epic in the various "Green Lantern" and "Blackest Night" comics coming out this year, but Abnett and Lanning have held their own with this war in the realm of the Marvel cosmic. Really, it's the classic DC/Marvel dichotomy, with the former company delighting readers with extreme sci-fi ideas and iconic heroes, while the latter company makes even a space battle seem like a down-to-Earth street fight. Abnett and Lanning make that street-fight-in-space feel like it matters, and that's no easy feat. Read Full Review
