This was a really great book. This is an awesome character that I never heard of before. I’m glad I discovered him. It probably has the best cover of all the books I saw this week.
The story starts with Nova going to a planet and finding survivors of a huge battle. The aliens look a little like cats and the alien children looked just like kittens. Nova rescues the alien children but then needs to go fight. It was sort of stupid that he went and left them all alone though after saving them. Now they’re going to be in trouble again.
These aliens called Skrulls attack Nova and they are friggin cool bad guys. I like how they can have the same powers as all the heroes and bad guys. I like how there were a bunch of different kinds of Skrulls. I saw a Skrull Doc Ock, Sandman, Wolverine, Iron Man and Cyclops. I thought Nova was going to get his butt kicked because he had to fight a whole gang of Skrulls who had all of those powers. I didn’t know how powerful Nova was.
Nova gets helped by a Skull who is really a good guy named Kl’rt. Kl’rt can also use different super powers like have Mr. Fantastic’s arms and the Thing’s hands. He is able to help Nova battle all of these very tough Skrulls.
Then Nova does something really awesome. He finds the Skrull ship and decides to attack it. Kl’rt thought he was crazy but he used all his power and went right through the ship, blowing it up. By teaming up, Nova and the good Skrull are able to beat back all of the bad Skrulls who seemed so tough.
The end had two parts that were great. I like how all of the Skrull ships showed up at the end, ready to attack Earth. They’re just sitting in space waiting to attack Earth. And then it’s really surprising when the good Skrull Kl’rt betrays Nova in the end and says that he’s going to kill him. I don’t know if he’s lying or if he was ever good. Nova’s more powerful than I thought, though so he’ll probably be able to take him.
The art was very good in the book. I like how all of the different types of Skrulls were drawn. They all looked very good. The alien kittens were drawn well, too. Nova has a really cool costume.
I liked this book a lot. It had a lot of adventure. The front cover was really cool and there were a lot of interesting parts in the whole book. There was a lot of stuff going on and it was fun to read.
