He's gone helmet-to-helmet with Iron Man, been burnt to a crisp, replaced by a Kree and turned evil. Yes, the last member of the Nova Corps has been put through the ringer, but as an all-new storyline begins in Nova #8, Richard Rider (a.k.a. Nova) may face his greatest challenge yet! The acclaimed writing team of Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning (Annihilation: Conquest) are joined by special guest artist Wellinton Alves (Laurell K Hamilton's Anita Blake: The First Death), who joins the critically acclaimed series for this important three-part arc. When Nova escaped the clutches of the Phalanx in issue #7, he thought he was one step closer to ending their malevolent march through Annihilation: Conquest. Instead, the Human Rocket now finds himself at what just may be the edge of the universe!
"Who are Xarth's Mightiest heroes? What is Cosmo? And where in the heck did Wellinton Alves come from?" asked editor Bill Rosemann. "All of us love stories that shock us – that have us wondering what could possibly be coming next – and reviewer after reviewer are applauding the rollercoaster that Dan and Andy are taking them on. And I have a feeling that readers are going to enjoy the extra shot of awesomeness that Wellinton is bringing to the show. Best of all, even if you've never read a single issue of Nova before this, issue #8 hits the ground running with everything you need to know to enjoy the action."
If he survives the next three issues in one piece, Nova's going to find himself with new allies, new villains…and a creepy complication that promises to bedevil him for months to come! Don't miss your chance to jump onboard the epic sci-fi adventure that Aint It Cool News calls "without a doubt, the best Marvel ongoing series of the year."
