nova-2016-1-ego

Nova relaunches again (because apparently no one currently working at Marvel Comics comics can count past three dozen or so these days). While the focus is still on Sam Alexander as Nova, he’s no longer the only Nova in town. Richard Rider has returned from the dead. Although the details of his resurrection are pretty sketchy at this point, one thing is for certain – Richard isn’t the same guy who gave his life to try and stop Thanos once and for all.

nova-13-now-hammer

Sam Alexander vs. the Space Horse! For a title which screams about its newness (given the lame .NOW tag) Nova #13.NOW is actually a throwback issue to a longtime staple of comics history. Two heroes meet under some form of misunderstanding leading to the pair to duke it out for a few panels before discovering their error and agreeing to team-up to take on the real threat.

Used mainly to set-up a series of events leading up to a classic misunderstanding (i.e. an overused comic book staple) and fight between two heroes in next month’s issue, Nova #12 continues Sam‘s adventures in the stars while his family deals with their own troubles on Earth.

Despite the final issue of the last panel suggesting Sam Alexander was blind, that’s actually far from the case (as he has his sight for he entire issue). What Sam is actually seeing (even when not wearing the helmet) is a series of dots that make up a map to the remains of other members of the Nova Squadron all of whom are dead (at least so far that we know).
