Well, we enjoyed the first issue of the new Jeph Loeb/Ed McGuinness Nova series well enough, and now we get our second look at Nova #2, courtesy of Marvel.
We got a black-and-white preview a couple weeks back, and now we've got a few full-color treats to look at from the second installment. We're getting the history of Sam Alexander, his drunken father's glory stories from the old Nova Corps days, and the arrival of Rocket Raccoon and Gamora from the Guardians of the Galaxy to induct Sam into the ways of intergalactic adventure. As you can see here, Sam doesn't react well to a talking raccoon with a giant gun.
Check out these pages from Nova #2, including a variant cover from J. Scott Campbell.
