5.0 out of 5 stars Cosmic wonder that even a crossover event can't water down! 28 Mar. 2017
By Jeffrey Daniels - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Let's get this out of the way first: company-wide crossovers? Meh.

But...

From back when they debuted on Nova during the first Annihilation storyline, Abnett & Lanning have done a masterful job taking this previously third-rate character and turning him into not just a major player in Marvel Cosmicology, but one of the best reads in comics during their run.

This grouping, covering some fun diversion with Galactus and the Silver Surfer and a totally fun use of the "Secret Invasion (meh)" crossover to reintroduce characters like Super Skrull (anti-hero?) and Darkhawk (another also-ran hero, used much better by A & L).

The stories, like most A & L scripts, sets up subplots for the biggest adventures yet to come for Nova and his growing cast of characters. Some are subtle and some smack you in the face, but the seeds are strewn all over the place in these issues, which makes the intertwining of an otherwise overdone crossover more engaging.

The whole A & L Nova run is one of the best ever in Marvel's cosmic mythology and rival the great Starlin stories that introduced Thanos and remade Warlock.

While there are all sorts of collections and Omnibuses (Omnubi?) that collect bits and pieces of the Nova run, it's a shame there isn't one big Omnibus collecting them all (plus the Thanos Imperative that ended their run).

Abnett & Lanning's influence is all over the current Marvel Cinemaverse and you can catch some of their unadulterated work in this collection.
3.0 out of 5 stars MORE DNA Nova greatness 6 Jan. 2015
By M. Hughes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
NOVA HELPS SAVE THE CITIZENS OF A Galactus targeted planet. Then encounters K'Rt the super skrull and that's where the secret invasion tie-in begins. The story is compelling, and the art work great. I have read the Entire volume on my kindle, and unlike some I've purchased, all text is legible. Any Richard Rider fans from the Annihilation story line will be pleased. This volume picks up right after Annihilation conquest story arc, another must read for the DNA (Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning) fans of Cosmic Marvel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nova Volume 3: The Super Skrull, Silver Surfer and Galactus...oh my! 2 Jun. 2010
By Grant - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Nova Volume 3: Secret Invasion is another exciting chapter in the life of the last Nova Centurion, Richard Rider.

In Nova Volume 3, Nova struggles to evacuate a planet about to be eaten by Galactus. But holding up his efforts is an evil murderous entity possessing the inhabitants of the planet, gruesomely slaughtering innocents and sabotaging Richard Riders efforts to evacuate them before Galactus destroys them all. In an effort to buy time, Nova must face off against the Silver Surfer as well as Galactus himself.

The story also sees Richard Rider returning to earth to deal with the Skrulls "Secret Invasion". Helping him is his former ally from Annihilation Conquest...The Super Skrull. But is the disgraced Skrull warrior trying to help Nova or is it all a ploy to get back into the good graces of the Skrull Empire?

While still very entertaining, Nova Volume 3 has the unenviable task of wrapping up loose story threads (The Secret Invasion) and starting new ones (The rebuilding of the Nova Corp) as well as reuniting Richard Rider with his parents and brother. Not as fluid as Volume 1&2 but still a very entertaining read. Nova Volume 3 collects issues 13 thru 18. Recommended.
