    In some ways I do wish the arc flowed more quickly. It doesn't appear as if this storyline is going to have much of a lasting impact on Realm of Kings or the greater cosmic Marvel lineup. This story could easily have been streamlined and shortened and probably would have been better off for it. Still, DnA are mining some real gold when it comes to Nova's psychology, and I'll be interested to see where his current troubles take him as Realm of Kings closes. Read Full Review

    The art and the writing are a match in "Nova" #33, both very inoffensive, competent, and safe. No new ground is broken, not even much character development of Nova or Darkhawk is advanced, but a lack of originality and stylistic flair are the only faults this book has. It's a perfectly enjoyable, mundane superhero comic, though that's something that Abnett and Lanning haven't produced many of lately. That's what makes this one somewhat disappointing.
