I just read the new Nova series from Marvel comics, created by Jeph Leob. I’m not really sure what to think of it. I loved the fourth volume of Nova that ran from 2007 to 2010, by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, known collectively as DnA. Their run on the second volume of Guardians of the Galaxy is also one of my other favorites.
Under DnA, Nova became more than just a knockoff mix of Green Lantern and Spider-Man mixture, he became a strong hero in his own right. If you are a fan of space comics, you would love Nova. However, after reading the 1st issue of this new Nova series, with a main character that is only 15 years old…he again feels like a knockoff Green Lantern, Spider-Man mixture. What’s worse, he feels like a Nova knock off too. I’m going to give it a couple issues and see how it goes, but as of right now with issue #1, it is already on my chopping block.
