Check Out Skottie Young's Cover to NOVA #1

Posted by G-Man (39261 posts) - - Show Bio

We've been seeing quite a bit about the new NOVA series this week. On Tuesday we saw a preview for issue #1. Wednesday gave us a black-and-white preview for issue #2. Yesterday we saw a penciled preview for issue #3. You might have been expecting a preview for issue four but considering issue #1 isn't on sale until February 20, that might be expecting too much.

Instead, Marvel has unveiled the Skottie Young variant for the first issue.

I think I'm really going to have to try to track this variant down.

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at superstar Skottie Young’s variant cover to NOVA #1 from the chart-topping, award-winning creative team of Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness! You met Sam Alexander, the all-new Nova, in the pages of last year’s blockbuster hit Avengers VS X-Men—now you’ll learn just how he’s connected to the Guardians of the Galaxy and just why is he the one worthy to carry on the legacy of the Nova Corps!

This February, Jeph Loeb & Ed McGuinness bring the Marvel Universe face to face with Sam Alexander in Nova #1!NOVA #1 (DEC120602)

Not that I'm complaining (cause I'm not) but Marvel seems to love themselves some Skottie Young right now.

Skottie has a kick ass artwork style. A great cover indeed...fingers crossed as well that the series turns out rocking cause this is one on my most anticipated upcoming releases.

I normally hate variant covers that don't match the interiors, but these are an exception.

These covers are great. Too bad the book cost $4

Skottie Young does some fabulous work (sometimes) ... this is not one of those times. (its really only... ok)

The best cover he's done so far is the All New X-Men #1 variant

Any art by Skottie Young rules, and this one's no exception!
