    NOVA is a series I'd never thought I'd be a monthly reader of. The concept never really appealed to me and even moreso, tie-in issues to big events tend to also fall flat. However, NOVA #19 does a really solid job of giving readers a fun story that ties into the main event, but it doesn't take away from the main storyline. Duggan is consistently putting out a fantastic book that is a ton of fun and I highly recommend this series. Read Full Review

    Since its inception I've wanted to love the new ‘Nova' series and I feel it keeps falling a little short. I think the problem stems from trying to keep Sam grounded in Earth and young while still have his responsibilities as a super hero on a cosmic level. The two haven't meshed well together and I think they either need to leave behind the cosmic level activities, which is what I want this comic for, or they need to give Sam a reason to stop being on Earth all of the time.

    "Nova" #19 sets Sam on the path to find some answers, but this adventure feels a bit thin, as though Duggan is pace-setting, despite the introduction of Oblitus or perhaps because of the introduction of Oblitus. It certainly is nice to see the story take a spell to stretch its legs and for Duggan and crew to push out the edges of Nova's corner of the universe while adding bodies to pit against Sam. The middle installment of a three-parter, this comic book serves up a sample of Sam Alexander's persona and cast, transitioning from the shock of the Watcher's demise to answers Sam really needs. "Nova" #19 isn't the greatest of the series to date, but it is a typical offering of the series' capabilities. Read Full Review
