New Series Previews: Alpha And Nova First Issues


alpha bannerWe’ve got two new series previews for you today. Two new Marvel series will kick off this coming Wednesday from some impressive creative teams. First up is Alpha: Big Time. Alpha jumps from the pages of Spider-Man into his own series from writer Joshua Hale Fialkov and artist Nuno Plati. He’s getting his powers back a little at a time, but is Spider-Man playing him for a chump?

Then you have the new Nova series from Jeph Loeb and artists Ed McGuinness and Dexter Vines. The Human Rocket returns as Sam Alexander takes up the mantle as Nova. This is one of the series that we’ve heard will tie in with the upcoming galactic event series. Will you be checking these out next week?


• From the pages of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, get ready for the greatest hero who ever existed…EVER!

• Alpha was having an awesome time of it, till that buzz-kill Spider-Man made him quit being a hero. But that was then …and this is NOW!

• Josh Fialkov & Nuno Plati (Amazing Spider-Man) reunite to tell the tale of a hero whos about to hit the BIG TIME!



The Human Rocket returns!

You’ve followed him through the history making (and changing!) AvX and now the mystery of the all-new Nova are revealed in this breathtaking new ongoing by the best-selling, award winning team of Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness (RED HULK, Avengers X-Sanction).

Sam Alexander is a kid bound by the gravity of a small town and a father whose ridiculous, drunken fairy tales about a “Nova Corps” were just another heavy burden in a life full of them. But luckily for Sam Alexander…soon gravity won’t even matter. And those troubles? It’s like they’re a billion miles away.
