    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Aug 28, 2009

    The next phase of this amazing series begins here and it kicks off with style. The issue is simply awesome on all levels and should not be missed. Of course, you should've been reading the series before this issue anyway, but if you haven't jumped on the Nova bandwagon yet, this issue is just one more reason to. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Aug 29, 2009

    Probably the best issue of Nova this year, which is saying a lot considering how good this book typically is. Strong from start to finish. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Mania - Chad Derdowski Aug 28, 2009

    It’s a treat to watch the character of Richard Rider continue to grow as both a hero and a leader as the series carries on and an additional treat to see each of the members of the Nova Corps do the same. If Abnett & Lanning can keep it up, I’ll be with this book for the long haul. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 7, 2009

    With the support of his new Corpsmen, including his little brother, Rich vows to become a force for good in the universe, and also to find a new place to live, as a headquarters in the brain of Ego is a little creepy for him. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Kevin Powers Aug 25, 2009

    Overall, this is a strong outing from DnA as they do what they can to tie up loose ends and open up new angles and plot threads that are to come. While there is a bit of a lull in the issue itself, it starts out very strong and ends with plenty of intrigue to bring the reader back next issue. And of course, the artwork is stunning.

    If you're like me and only just wandered into Marvel's space titles via "War of Kings," I think "Nova" is the book to tide you over for the time being. It's fun and has that same sort of punch that "War of Kings" did, with just the right mix of normalcy and weirdness. Congratulations, Abnett and Lanning, you just picked up another reader.

    Once again, Abnett and Lanning deliver another fantastic issue of Nova. Richard, Irani, and Morrow reach Robbie just as Strontian breaks free, but with all their combined efforts they manage to escape Kree-Lar with Strontian and Ravenous as their prisoners. Back on Nu-Xandar, Worldmind disassembles the Nova Corps, except for a select few. The new Nova Corps consists of Richard, Robbie, Irani, Morrow, Franktur, Qubit, Lindy, and Tre. All in all a spectacular issue that sets up the last leg of this series
