    It should come as no surprise that, once again, Nova is amongst the best books of the week. The superb character work featured in this issue is the calling card for the series, as is the great mix of action and quieter moments. Kevin Sharpe's art could use a bit refinement, but he does a solid job of interpreting the script and has good chemistry with the writers. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 26, 2009

    This issue runs the gamut from creepy (as the Novas investigate the mysterious ship) to all-out action (as Richard faces down with Monark) to a 'don't cross the streams' bad moment at the end.

As the Galactic Cops, Richard and hisNovas don't have the luxury of sitting back to rest just because the direct threat has gone away, and DnA's story shows that nicely. I like the art here, a good bit of work by Kevin Sharpe (a name I'm not familiar with, but one I think I'll look out for) and the issue g Read Full Review

    Another quality story. The art pulled down the story. Hopefully, the art picks up next issue. Read Full Review

    I've always accepted that Guardians was generally superior to Nova. "How can it not be?", I ask as Rocket Raccoon holds a large gun to my head. But sadly, the gap between the two books seems to be widening lately. I sincerely hope Abnett and Lanning can put the series on track before Realm of Kings upsets the status quo once again.
