The third issue of “Nova” by Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness shows readers the trials and tribulations one goes through when training with Rocket Raccoon and Gamora.
Sam Alexander the book’s title character meets Uatu the Watcher in this issue. Uatu warns Nova about the Chitauri Armada heading towards Earth.
Writer Jeph Loeb and artist Ed McGuinness continue to impress readers with their pacing, world building, and character development.
The Chitauri make their Marvel 616 debut! Chitauri was the name given the the Skrulls in the Ultimate Universe, and were part of the Alien Invasion in the Avengers Film, making them part of the Cinematic Universe. From what little readers learned in this issue, it’s a safe assumption to assume the Chitauri are their own race, with their own motivations and goals separate from the Skrulls, in the Classic Marvel Universe.
Really looking forward to the next issue!
