Enjoyable stuff. Even with a couple of the villains gone, there are still two left. Both interesting. Lots happens in the issue, between battles, personal drama, amnesia, etc. Good fun. 7/10

  This came pretty close to being good.

  They were right on the first page. This is the best 11th issue of Nova v1 I have ever read in my life. That's still not saying much.

  Blah blah blah. Tons of dialogue in this one.

  I'm normally a sucker for stories that showcase how resilient the hero is, but this one really didn't do it for me. Hearing Sphinx go on and on about how impressive Nova is, particularly when in every previous appearance Sphinx has never had anything good to say about anyone, rang false. And there's no way I believe that the Sphinx just wanders off when Nova has what the guy's been searching for for 5000 years.

I like that Wolfman has given Nova a recurring cast of friends, but other than Caps he hasn't developed them at all. We also haven't seen Rich interacting with them except to blow them off for a long time now. I feel the same way about the recurring villains - good in theory, but the character development has been disappointing.

  When I first read it, I misread it and thought they were saying it was the eleventh-best issue of Nova ever.

  I only liked Sphinx and the big fight.
