Official Press Release
Marvel is pleased to announce that Nova #3 has sold out at Diamond (though copies may be available at the retail level), marking the third straight sell-out from this brand new series! With ties to both the wildly popular Initiative storyline and the acclaimed sci-fi epic Annihilation, Nova tells the story of the galaxy’s remaining member of the Nova Corp-Richard Rider-a young Earthman sworn to protect the universe with his incredible power. In the first three issues of the acclaimed series, Nova confronted Iron Man, fought the Thunderbolts and dealt with personal fallout from Civil War. So what’s next?
“Wow, that is great news, we’d really like to thank all the fans who are sticking with us for the thrill ride that is NOVA!” said writers DnA. “And to those who haven’t joined the fun yet, what’s keeping you? You’ve already missed out on alien battles with bugs from space, confrontations with Iron Man, a toe-to-toe slugfest with the Thunderbolts, plus all the fallout from the demise of the New Warriors and the rise of the Initiative!!”
“A tip of the Nova helmet to all the readers who have joined us on the ride so far,” added editor Bill Rosemann. “Writers Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning, penciler Sean Chen, inker Scott Hanna, colorists Guru eFX, letterer Cory Petit and cover artist Adi Granov have fused together into the galaxy’s most powerful creative team – and just wait until you see the awesomeness that they’ll unleash as Rich rockets into Annihilation: Conquest! Just who is the woman shown in the preview art? Find out in Nova #4…that is, before it sells out!”
As Nova returns to space, joining other heroes in the hotly anticipated Annihilation: Conquest, Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Nova. It’s the book that caused Blake M Petit of Comixtreme.com to declare, “I’ve enjoyed every page of this book so far, and I can’t wait to follow the man called Nova into Annihilation: Conquest.”
Please note that at this time, Marvel has no plans to go back to press on Nova #3.
