In Review: Nova #2


Written by Jeph Loeb and illustrated by Ed McGuinness, Nova #2 picks up with one of Marvel’s newest young heroes, Sam Alexander waking up in a hospital bed with Rocket Raccoon and Gamora standing over him.

Son to Jesse Alexander, famed of the Black Nova or Supernovas, Sam finally understands that all those stories Dad told him about his space travels were really true. If only he had believed him, because in true super hero form, this issue is all about Sam’s realization of those powers left to him by his father.

Oh and did I mention that Sam, still unsure of his powers flies all the way to the Moon! Not only that, but he has managed to get the Watcher’s attention. You know that means something is in store for young Master Alexander!

The art is fun and the story is having a great time setting up our heroes and the story line, which is sure to have galactic implications into the upcoming Marvel Space movies. This is an issue and story line I would suggest be picked up for the pure enjoyment of a good old fashioned fun comic book!
