While Richard Ryder fans are forced to scour the long boxes for memories of their favorite Nova, Marvel is pushing forward with their new space copper, Sam Alexander. I’ve never been too partial to the older books, ignoring the more recent Annihilation era, of course, but this new series looks particularly good. Although, this would have been another perfect opportunity for Marvel to add some diversity to their roster, as they did with Miles Morales in the Ultimate Spider-Man books.
The Year’s Most Exciting New Super Hero Enters Marvel NOW! In NOVA #1!

You met Sam Alexander, the all-new Nova, in the pages of last year’s blockbuster hit Avengers VS X-Men—but what is his secret origin? How is he connected to the Guardians of the Galaxy? And just why is Sam the only one worthy to carry on the legacy of the Nova Corps? These answers reveal shocking secrets about the Marvel Universe and help set the stage for the biggest comic book event of the year!
