    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Mar 18, 2010

    This very strange storyline ends in a very strong manner as Mahmud Asrar carries the issue to this spot in the Rankings. His art is easily the strongest work he has done for Marvel to date. When that is combined with the very intriguing conclusion to this issue, you've got a great read on your hands. I really cannot see where they take this from here and I hope that Asrar sticks around for it. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Apr 3, 2010

    I kind of like this moment, but like Blackest Night #8, the choice of whom to resurrect feels a bit arbitrary, and I'm afraid that this will be bad, but like Rich, it's good to have a lost friend back. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Chad Nevett Mar 18, 2010

    That actually sums up this issue of "Nova" well: no style. It's a mediocre, generic superhero book that lacks the flair of other DnA-penned books. The ending of the issue is the only place where the comic has any real sense of drama and embraces the imaginative skills of the duo. The rest is solid and good, but not anything special.

    However, I will give them credit for making Richard Rider a consistent and consistently interesting character. At the very least, they’re still getting that part right, which brings the book up from a D to a D+. Hopefully the next issue and the return to Earth will also signal a return to the quality storytelling fans of this book have grown accustomed to. Read Full Review
