Marvel continues to unveil more from the upcoming Nova series, which promises not only a new character wearing the helmet of Nova, but what looks to be a pretty deep connection with the Guardians of the Galaxy, another group with a new series coming out soon. We’ve taken a look at the first 2 issues from Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuiness, and we have a great new preview of the third issue that show off some great pencils before any of the finishing. Click through below to check it out.
[box_dark]Marvel is pleased to present your first look at NOVA #3, from the chart-topping, award-winning creative team of Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness! It’s time for Sam Alexander’s first training day as Nova, but when your teachers are the Guardians of the Galaxy, nothing’s easy! But as the truth about his heritage is revealed, along with the full scope of an interstellar threat facing Earth, can Sam find the strength to be the Super Hero his world needs?[/box_dark]
I am loving McGuinness’es’ess pencils on this series, and you just know with the Watcher taking center stage here that we can expect big things from Sam Alexander. Marvel’s been making the push to bring the cosmic characters into the mainstream, especially with the Guardians of the Galaxy getting their own big budget movie as a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If they are playing this big of a part in Nova’s training, could he be far behind in getting the star treatment?
Also, check out the variant cover for the first issue by Skottie Young, who has been dropping some great covers for all the Marvel NOW! series:
And since I still find it awesome, I just have to once again point out that Principal Strickland is ruling over our newest hero to wear the helmet of Nova.
