(W) Brian Michael Bendis (A/CA) Ed McGuinness

Original Sin Tie-In!

Nova, the Human Rocket - who once burned a bright streak across the Marvel Universe, gone in a flash. Side-by-side with Star-Lord, Richard Rider fought valiantly to save the universe from Thanos. Left sealed in a twisted and horrific version of our own universe, Richard Rider sacrificed everything to save us.

Now, the truth of that sacrifice will finally come to light! Thanos and Star-Lord miraculously reappeared, but Nova was nowhere to be found. The true story about what happened has remained a closely guarded secret between two bitter enemies. Now, thanks to the events of Original Sin, the truth is about to come out! What happened to Rich Rider in the Cancerverse? How did Star-Lord and Thanos escape their hellish imprisonment? And most importantly, why did they lie about it?

That's a beautiful Alex Ross cover, he's been making some great stuff for Marvel lately, wish he was still willing to work with DC too.

This looks like a chilling, epic and tragic tale. I really need to catch up on what happened and lead up to the three of them going into the Cancerverse.

I've always wondered what happened to Rich. Really was digging what Marvel was doing with the character. Not a fan of Sam Alexander.

By the beard of Thor…I hope Bendis executes this perfectly. This is very sensitive territory he is dipping his feet into. He could either piss of a whole slew of Marvel fans or make them very happy. I hope this LEADS to the one true Nova Prime coming back….please Marvel please...
