The first issue blew our preconceived ideas out of the water with an incredible sense of fun. This issue delivers on action and then more action as Sam continues to try to save his father. Of course, the other Nova is Richard Ryder, not his father.
Richard’s personality is a far cry from Sam’s, which makes the pairing such an interesting concept and creates an enjoyable dynamic between the two. There’s plenty of things that keeps this comic fresh: there’s both light and dark moments. The lighter moments often come in the form of Richard meeting newer Marvel characters like Ms. Marvel. He’s been away from the Universe for quite some time, so it was nice to see a hero mimic our thoughts in regards to some of the recent changes.
The artwork’s energetic style is the perfect match for characters who fly around the world at immense speeds. You can’t go wrong with immaculate visuals and a complex dynamic between two interesting characters, and that’s what Nova #2 brings to the table.
