    You should definitely read Nova. Its not too far into the series yet, the main characters are relatable, and something terrible is bound to happen soon enough. And who doesnt like that kind of tragic drama? Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 6, 2017

    This issue was amazing, the jokes mixed in with the storyline made this book extremely enjoyable. The best ones were about Tony the Tiger and bashing Spider-man always going on about great powers blah blah blah. I love this book, and with Rich having his cancerous secret I can't wait to see what happens with it. The art in this book is on point and all the action scenes were flawless. Read Full Review

    Perez has the art work jumping off the page. The bomb scene between Rich and Sam especially comes to mind as a memorable one for this new relationship between the two. My only concern was for the novas being taken out rather easy this issue when these cats are mad powerful, but I do actually like when characters are given a limit to what they are invincible against.

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 1, 2017

    Retro, fun, and action-packed, this is the epitome of superhero comics. This issue might lack the storytelling punch of its action sequence, but it gets the job done and then some. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Feb 2, 2017

    The real joy of the issue is the interplay between Sam and Richard, especially in their brief downtime and their telepathic conversation. It's such a great dynamic that it seems like it will inevitably be ripped away from them. But for now, it's a lot of fun! Read Full Review

    GearWERKZ - Agasicles Stamas Feb 4, 2017

    This issue could have gone bad. Or at least come off as very tepid. But a major reveal midway through the book and some on-point fighting sequences lead me to be a bit more forgiving. This story wraps up solidly and sets up well for the next adventure. And the relationship between Rich and Sam is becoming a thing to be admired in super-hero storytelling. Props to Perez for some innovative panel layouts, too. Read Full Review

    If you've ever been curious about getting into the Nova comic, but were never quite sold on Sam Alexander, now is your time! This comic features some great character work, a real love of the Nova brand, and the creative team definitely has some tricks up their sleeves. Read Full Review

    Nova continues to be an entertaining cosmic soap opera with an intriguing mystery lying underneath. The story just hasn't exactly hit its full potential just yet. Read Full Review
