“Nova” rockets into annual
I always liked Nova; I realize to a lot of people he may have been Spider-Man lite, but hey, I enjoyed Spider-Man, so why not Spider-Man lite? I thought he had a cool costume and a neat helmet. Plus, the Nova Corps echoed the Green Lantern Corps, which I also liked.
I picked up a few of his issues piecemeal as a kid, then followed the New Warriors for the majority of his involvement. When I was living in Dallas in 1997, I picked up a near-complete set at a comic store there, and worked my way through the issues. More recently, I bought “The Essential Nova,” which I find to be a fine pick-me-up on otherwise dreary days. A good page to reference Nova’s origins and other Nova info is the Nova Prime Page.
On Feb. 13, Nova gets his first annual, spinning out of the events of “Annihilation.”
From Marvel: Following the events of Nova #10, Richard Rider has pushed himself to his very limits. After the Phalanx infected the last centurion with their insidious transmode virus, Nova fought to free himself from the control of the tyrannical techno-organic species, but has not yet been able to expel the invader from his system. On the verge of finally reaching the Phalanx’s homeworld, and possibly securing the help that could halt the Conquest, Nova discovers his war against the Phalanx may already be lost!
