    A bit too compressed and rushed a story for my tastes. I blame the Marvel Editors for not having faith in Cosmic's selling power and allocating more issues.

      Yeah same here.

      Really, really disappointed with this issue. Nova issue was really good. The others were okay.

      This whole series needed a lot more issues, similar to the original Annihilation comics.

        I had mixed feelings. Overall liked it, but was disappointed with the Nova cliches. Stop killing off RR, G-D-it! Enough! Get creative and have him cleverly avoid death without self-sacrifice. The fact that they revived him on the last page is clearly indicative that he has a movie in his future. Otherwise, they'd have used the occasion to introduce his PC replacement - no doubt a teenage, half-pygmy/half-some-other-minority, transgendered, disabled combat veteran in a wheelchair. Is there any box I forgot to check? If so, add that too.

        All sarcasm aside, I'm all for diversity. I just agree with the late, great, Stan Lee. If you want characters with certain demographics, just create new ones with those demographics FFS! Steve Rogers is Captain America, Thor Odinson is Thor, Tony Stark is Iron Man, Peter Parker is Spiderman, Wendell Vaughn is Quasar, and Richard Rider is Nova! Stop replacing them! Yes, they are all white men. And that hasn't hurt their sales. They made Marvel what it is today.

        The PC characters just can't seem to keep sales above cancellation threshold. What does that tell you? That the 100,000 comic book buyers out there won't buy their books. So give the buyers what they want - the classic characters who do sell.

        All this BS in the twitterverse and from movie critics - people who don't buy/like comics and who really don't like or care about superhero movies should just be ignored. Trying to please that crowd has probably not resulted in any measurable increase in comic book sales or movie ticket sales. And as I recall, the movies featuring the classic characters (mainly white men) sold a lot of tickets and made a lot of money. I doubt this PC movement for the MCU is going to increase movie ticket sales. In fact, it'll probably decrease sales.
