Nova #21 Review

NOVA #21
Written by Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning

The Nova bullet train just keeps on going as this issue continues with the revival of the Nova Corps. While I'm not thrilled with the massive influx of new Novas, which dilute the main character's appeal somewhat and detract from the introduction of the first batch of Nova recruits from a few issues ago, I can see that Abnett and Lanning have something planned here and that all is not right with the Worldmind, warranting putting up with the sudden introduction of the new centurions.

While the plot is pretty straightforward - Nova is asked to give up the Nova Force, refuses and later has it taken away from him by force - the trip more than made up for it. With the exception of Nova's annoying brother, I loved just about every bit of dialogue and interaction from this issue, especially when Reed Richards and Worldmind get into their tangent on the science of how the planet-like Ego is not affecting the Earth with its gravity.

However, the big shock of the issue, which the cover hints at, is Nova being stripped of the Nova Force and expunged from the Corps. While many could see it coming, the thing that is shocking to me is that I can't tell if Worldmind is the one in the wrong or if Nova is actually succumbing to the stresses of bearing the entire Nova Force or not. As it is, it looks as if the now powerless Nova will have to seek out some new means of getting around the universe. My guess is we see Quasar's ghost/energy form joining up for a temporary power up until Richard either regains his Nova status or the Worldmind is freed of Ego or whatever is influencing him.

Verdict - Must Read. Just another great issue of Nova.
