Nova #1 Rockets To A Sell-Out!

Marvel is pleased to announce that Nova #1 has sold out at Diamond. Spinning out of Annihilation, Richard Rider is the last surviving member of the intergalactic peacekeeping force once known as the Nova Corps and is now charged with using his formidable powers to protect and serve the worlds of the cosmos. His return to Earth at the end of issue #1 caught the attention of some important people and in issue #2, fans will see Nova come helmet-to-helmet with Iron Man in a story that ties into the wildly popular Initiative storyline spinning out of Civil War!


“Sold-out? This is great news for old Nova fans as well as new — and especially for all those involved in putting the comic together: Sean Chen, Adi Granov, Scott Hanna, Guru eFX, Cory Petit, (assistant editor) Alejandro Arbona and our own Supreme Intelligence: Bill Rosemann!” said DnA (a.k.a. writers Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning) from their secret satellite base somewhere in the depths of Kree space. “Thanks and props to the retailers and readers who have joined us on the wild rocket ride that is Nova! Stick around, strap yourselves in, and hold on to your lunch — the best is yet to come!”

“The quality of the first Annihilation event put the opening night spotlights in the air, Adi’s cover invited everyone inside, and the story by Dan, Andy, Sean, Scott, Guru and Cory seems to have wowed everyone who’s read it,” said editor Bill Rosemann. “Everyone involved gave it the old Nova Corps effort to continue the momentum of Annihilation and we thank all the readers and retailers who bought, read and enjoyed the debut issue. DnA have all sorts of cosmic craziness planned, so we hope readers will be there for issues #2 and #3, when Nova returns home – and Iron Man and the Thunderbolts roll out the red carpet!”

Please note that Nova #1 may still be available at the retail level. There are no plans to go back to print on Nova #1 at this time. With ties to the Initiative, Marvel advises retailers to check their orders on upcoming issues of Nova as Richard Rider makes his presence known on Earth! And be sure to check out the past Nova adventures in the first 2 volumes of the Annihilation HC and Essential Nova Vol.1 TPB.
