    Duggan's first issue is tons of fun. It is obvious that he understands the character and will provide us with great stories. The art is fantastic as usual with Medina's pencils being very detailed. Curiel's color is something to be praised. This issue is so fun that I could not put it down! If you want fun adventures with a good laugh then look no further than Nova. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Dec 11, 2013

    This is a book you should definitely be reading. The more we get to know of Sam Alexander, the more likable he becomes. Trying to balance the responsibilities of possessing the Nova powers while still trying to get through being a high school student (and big brother), this books strays from the average superhero tale. Despite the strange locales Sam may venture to, there is a lot of humanity here with Sam being such a normal kid in an grandiose situation. It's refreshing having a series like NOVA to read each month. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Dec 12, 2013

    "Nova" #11 is another strong issue in this series, and I'm glad that even with the merry-go-round of creators that the book still feels like it's on course. If you haven't been reading "Nova" this is as good a spot as any to sample for yourself. It's good old-fashioned superhero fun, but updated to match today's sensibilities. It's too bad more superhero books aren't like "Nova." Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - James Connolly Dec 17, 2013

    Nova's artwork throughout the series has been top notch and Paco Medina's gorgeous pencils continue that trend here, David Curiel's color work and use of light source give it a big cosmic scope even in a overall grounded issue. It's very possible that Sam Alexander is Marvel's next Peter Parker proving that the relate-able high school student turned super hero formula is as viable in 2013 as it was in the silver age of comics. Though it's a slightly slower paced entry into the series Nova number 11 is still an interesting and entertaining piece of the overall tale of Sam Alexander and his adventures with his new found powers. I'd definitely recommend it as a non-Avengers, non-X-men, and easily accessible comic to any reader looking to get their fix of cosmic fun. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 18, 2013

    Despite immediately abandoning the set-up of a blind Sam, the issue has fun moments on both Earth (involving Sam babysitting his little sister) and in space (where they hero discovers the fate of another Nova). Worth a look. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Connor Relyea Dec 12, 2013

    With the introduction of the new villain at the end of this book we'll get to see the full challenge of this new story in the next few issues. It should be a fun ride. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Gilad Levin Dec 15, 2013

    I wanted to like this issue. I really did. After last month's cliffhanger I was looking forward to the exciting places new writer Gerry Duggan could take the story. Of course, that never happened, instead we get a book I wish I had not spent money on. On the positive side, Paco Medina's art is decent and Sam's little sister telling him that the Avengers TV Show sucks made me laugh. Not enough to salvage the story but it was something.
