Thoughts on Nova #35

I thought #35 was a very good ending to the Riddle of the Sphinx storyline. My favorite part of the issue was the interaction between Rich Rider and Reed Richards.

Nova having Mr. Fantastic figure out the complex quantum calculations and getting impatient made me smile and showed some insight into Rich's thinking. The impatience shows two things to me.

One: Rich has the highest respect for Reed's intelligence. He had no doubt Reed could do it and was getting slightly impatience when the answer wasn't there right away.

Two: I think it made Rich appreciate the WorldMind a little more. Nova is so used to the WM making instant calculations that he forgot that Reed is a human and might need just a little more time to get it calculated.

And the solution itself was just brilliant. :)

Rocket Boosters II Update

16 pages done so far! Pierre is almost done with the cover art. When he's done, I'll add the logos and text and post it here!

The Future of Nova?

Still no news from Marvel about the future of the cosmic books (Nova and Guardians of the Galaxy) after The Thanos Imperative.

I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing at this point. However, some news either way would be helpful. It may also mean that Marvel hasn't finalized their plans yet. Which is understandable since the Thanos story will run until the end of the year.

I'm guessing that we'll learn more at the C2E2 convention in Chicago next month. I'll be there on Saturday and will keep my ears open. :)
