*Marvel: In 1976, the House Of Ideas came up with Nova, designed originally to be an ‘everyman’ character like Peter Parker/Spider-Man, but quickly developing into a cosmic ‘soldier’ more akin to Green Lantern. Luckily, DC’s lawyers didn’t notice the parallels. Although the original run lasted a mere 25 issues, Nova has returned many times to the Marvel Universe, especially involved in the protracted cosmic crossovers of which Marvel is so fond. The Nova Corps having been namechecked in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, it can only be a matter of time before the man himself makes an on-screen appearance, so grab these while you can! New issues in stock between #2 and the final #25 of the original series, averaging FN/VF.
