lokeinlyesmith asked: This isn't so much an "ask" as it is a "tell". I see all kinds of grief you get over Nova, because of Sam. I've liked Sam since the get-go, but that's not even half of why I'm here. I've been struggling to find comics coming out currently that I can read and share with my 7 year old son. I'm trying to get him to read more, find things that he finds engaging, that we can bond over, and I found that in Nova. Thank you. Those two words aren't enough. But /thank you/.
Hi - Marvel has some storybooks - mostly origins. In addition to Nova, DC had a line of fun all ages books - The Batman Adventures. There’s a Thor book from Samnee that we love too. Boom has some Pixar comics too - thanks for reading Nova.

OCTOBER 10-12, 2O14 IN NEW YORK, NY
Assuming I am not fatally pint’ed to death in Dublin with Declan, Jordie and all my new Irish friends, I should be extradited back to the states in time for NYCC. I don’t know in what capacity I’ll be there, but I’ll have some times to sign at the very least.
Not a joke: I’m not doing any conventions in 2015. Next year my son will have baseball and soccer games that I will want to attend, and it’s hard being away from my family so much. It’s probably a delight for them, but it’s hard on me, so fuck this. After New York in the fall, I’m on hiatus. Come see me sometime this year if you want. Thanks again for the support.
A couple of new comics are going to be announced this year including two I’m already working on. Thanks for supporting me, and allowing me to do what I love for a living.
First, funny guy Jeff Loveness loses his Marvel cherry in spectacular fashion in A+X 17. This issue will long be remembered for his arrival and it’s not just the penultimate chapter of my serial, but the second to last issue of the book, ever! I know that big word because I looked it up. Here’s a look at the penultimate issue. It’s such a great word! Congrats Jeff, his story pairs Iron Man with Broo. Fun stuff.
Then, Christopher Yost & Marcus To reintroduce us to New Warriors. I’ve had the pleasure of reading ahead, and this book is fun as hell — it’s worth you dropping a book to make room for it on your pull list. (Just nothing I’m writing, please.) Here’s a preview.
(TURNS TO CAMERA 3)
It’s time to talk about me. Tomorrow Beta Ray Bill arrives in Nova 13, and it kicks off my first big cosmic arc. I’m thrilled that you guys get to finally enjoy it. It’s a perfect place to jump on if you’ve not been reading. My hope is to make you all fans of Sam Alexander. No lie - it’s worth it for the wonderful art. Check it out. Here’s a preview. Of everything I’m currently writing at the moment, I am enjoying writing Nova the most. I hope it shows, and you guys dig it. Bill and Sam start off on the wrong foot (Sam’s bad) and then they share an adventure that will hopefully leave Sam a smidge wiser…if he survives.
Oh, and our award winning Marvel Infinite Comic is out today too. (I hope someone gives it an award someday, or I’m going to feel dumb) Deadpool: The Gauntlet # 7 is live at Comixology and Marvel.com right now.
Just for fun, you can’t buy it or anything, but here’s a picture of me failing my Nova Corps physical.
Thanks for the reading, and I appreciate the support!
PS - Buy Robinson & Kirk’s FF when it comes out too - you’re welcome!
PPS - Later this week I’ll be able to share a couple of short pieces that I directed. Thanks to some wonderful acting and clever editing, my shortcomings as a directer have been completely obscured!
PPPS - Deadpool 24 drops next week, and it’s a doozy. Fair warning. Some big goings on in that one, including some small things that might be missed. Please enjoy! Or don’t, but don’t tweet anything shitty at me, and we’ll call it a day.
Chapter One of Marvel Infinite Comics new series Deadpool: The Gauntlet is on sale now. Hope you dig it!
Deadpool 22 is out today, and is already being enjoyed without you. Thanks, Comic Vine. In stores and at Comixology and the Marvel app.
It guest stars Scott Adsit and Clark Gregg as SHIELD agents.
Also in stores today A+X 16 starring Captain America & Cyclops.
Jordan D White and I chat about Deadpool’s wedding in # 27 here.
And Hawthorne and I chat about the wedding with Newsarama.
And next week Nova 12 arrives. Please add Nova to your pull-lists. I’m having a lot of fun, the art team is wickedly talented and the scripts that I just turned in were some of the most pleasing to deliver. I can’t tell you how excited I am about all the fun we’re having with Sam Alexander. Yes, he can fly into space, but he’s also got the problems of a lot of other teenagers today. Here are a few upcoming covers. Thanks again for the support.
cumberpatchmannor asked: So I'm really interested in Nova and would love learn more about his character but I don't know which Nova to start with. Any recommendations? Same goes for the Almighty Sorcerer supreme I think Doctor Strange is all kinds of cool and would appreciate some direction. Thanks for the help Taco Man
I love the current Nova series, currently being written by Gerry “Loves to be Tickled” Duggan. He’s a new character, and a great way to jump into the Nova mythos. There’s also the Nova series that began in 2007, starring Richard Rider, written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning. That series, and all the other work that they did in the cosmic part of the Marvel U, made me a believer. TOP NOTCH.
Read all those and more, if you’re a Marvel Unlimited subscriber.
