Art by Andrea Di Vito
+ Nova kicks ass and takes names.
+ Nova then verbally abuses King Blastaar before reminding him that he'll tear him inside out like he did the last person (Annihlus) to hold the Cosmic Rod.
+ Nova Corps has trimmed all the fat and is back down to the core group first introduced prior to Ego/Worldmind's mass recruiting.
+ Nova Corps ship from the Fault for the cliffhanger. Old Centurions returning? Rhoman Dey, who hasn't been seen since that lone appearance a few issues back? Lot's of interesting possiblities moving out of War of Kings.
- Di Vito is a solid artist with a style similar to Wellinton Alves, but it's a far cry from Alves's work. Also devoid of background details, typically opting for a washed out skyline or generic wall.
Verdict - Must Read. Probably the best issue of Nova this year, which is saying a lot considering how good this book typically is. Strong from start to finish. Highly recommended.
