    Although our hero isn't able to get into much action, this issue is quite entertaining as Nova continues to struggle to grow into his role as a super-hero and try (and often fail) to learn the best way to use his powers to make a difference. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Paco Medina's pencils look good, even though there are times when the character's expressions seem off. The costumed characters look the best; it's clear that Medina knows how to draw superheroes. However, the real star of the art team is colorist David Curiel, who makes this issue glow. There's shine and a brightness to the world, a sense of adventure that radiates in through the colors. Coupled with solid ink work from Juan Vlasco, Nova #7 is a mighty good looking comic book.

    Multiversity Comics - James Johnston Aug 22, 2013

    As a comic, "Nova" did everything it was supposed to. It had a fun one-in-done adventure with some really great art. It also set up for a lot of interesting plotlines in the future with The New Warriors and the inevitable Infinity tie-in. Not only that, but it offered just enough continuity to get me interested in what had happened in the rest of the series and in what will happen in future issues. That saying that "Every Issue Is Somebody's First" works here, as I went from wanting to avoid Nova as much as possible to finding it to be one of the better books in the Marvel Universe. A really funny script, some great art, and a young protagonist who isn't constantly talking about how he should be on his smartphone or pager make "Nova" #7 a pretty darn good issue and actually turned me around on my opinion of the whole series. Good job, team. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Meagan Damore Aug 23, 2013

    Wells and Medina's "Nova" #7 attempts to have an easygoing and fun loving atmosphere but the issue feels rushed and at times includes scenes which have no immediate bearing on the titular character. Even though Wells and Medina provide an enjoyable read, the issue is ultimately as forgettable as it is funny. Hopefully, the plot will pick up as soon as the "Infinity" event runs its course, allowing Sam to continue his zigzagging path to becoming a superhero in a more linear fashion. Read Full Review
