    While I've been trying to ignore the rumors of this titles demise as it takes a hiatus after this issue, I have to admit that if it is going to be cancelled, this is a great way to go out. This issue manages to capture everything that I've loved about this Nova series and about Nova in general. Kudos to the great creative team for stepping it up in a big way with this issue and earning themselves a shiny new Book of the Week honor. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Apr 25, 2010

    The Marvel Cosmic characters have been embroiled in event after event, from "Annihilation," to the current "Thanos Imperative," but to Abnett's and Lanning's credit, these characters don't seem to be wearing thin, nor do the events seem to be events. What the duo -- and all of the gifted artists they work with -- has managed to do is deliver top-notch, enjoyable stories that are easily approachable despite the years of story layers put upon these characters. Abnett and Lanning never lose sight of the fact that the every issue (even this seemingly final issue of "Nova") is someone's first issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Apr 21, 2010

    Nova #36 is a solid outing for Nova and friends, easily the strongest issue of the series in some time. The only question is whether it will be his last. At the very least, Nova is poised to play a major role in The Thanos Imperative. Between that and Secret Avengers, I don't think fans have too much cause for disappointment. Read Full Review
