An Interview With Nova's Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning!
A Nova Prime Page Exclusive

The writers of the current Nova ongoing series, Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, have reached the one year mark on the book! They were very generous and took the time to answer some questions about their time with Nova and what the future might hold! I'd like to thank Dan and Andy for their time and answers!

As the series comes to its one year anniversary, what aspects of it are you the most proud of so far?

DnA: We're very proud it's been a hit, and that it's brought the character back into the spotlight. The reception we've received has been fantastic. We're also proud of the way we've been able to rejuvenate the character, taking Rich back home and reconnecting him, albeit briefly, with his family, and then exploring his duties in the cosmos. It's been a pleasure to write, and we appreciate the interest and enthusiasm it's generated.

With the tie ins to The Initiative and Annihilation: Conquest, do you feel the events changed the direction you originally wanted to take the book or have they provided you with a good opportunity to explore the character in the bigger Marvel Universe?

DnA: They've given us real opportunities to set Richard in context in both the Marvel Universe on Earth and the greater Marvel Cosmos. His visit to Earth both allowed him to reflect on the Civil War from an outsider's perspective, and allowed the Earth-based characters to appreciate the changes in him. Annihilation: Conquest, like the previous Annihilation, was a massive cosmic event, and it's only right and proper than one of the Cosmos's premier protectors gets to play an important role. We think you've love issue six of Annihilation: Conquest.

Given the popularity of Ko-Rel, do you have any regrets about her death after only a few issues?

DnA: Ko-Rel was a great character, but the nature of her story and her death was too powerful and important a story not to tackle it head on. Ko-Rel's inception as a Centurion and her abrupt demise were both meant to wrong-foot the readers. As a general touchstone for this book, we try to pile on the twists and surprises, so that every time you think you know what's coming next, we deliver something different.

The story arc following Annihilation: Conquest features the Silver Surfer and Galactus. Is this your first work with them and how did you approach the characters in comparison to Nova?

DnA: We've not tackled Galactus and his herald properly before, and this will be their first major appearance since the aftermath of the original Annihilation event. We are going to play around with scale, and try to portray Galactus in a way he's not been seen before. We want to remind people how awesome he is. Imagine a story about a lone cop on duty in a city when a huge hurricane hits town. Rich is the cop, Galactus is the hurricane.

Congratulations on being the writers to produce the character's first annual! In Nova Annual #1, you revisited Nova's origin and had a vision/dream of Nova's possible future. Of what we saw, what parts would you say were Rich's actual memories, delusions and virus-induced hallucinations?

DnA: All and all! The Phalanx had clearly affected his memories of the past, but we were also trying to gently modernize those moments, whilst paying respectful homage to the original creators. As to the veracity of the future vision, we (and Richard) will have to wait and see what the future holds. If that is the future, there are going to be an awful lot of questions to answer!

The series has featured some great science fiction elements especially Cosmo and Knowhere. How did you come up with the concepts for a telepathic Russian cosmonaut dog and a floating Celestial head for a city?

DnA: Honestly, they just came to us. The severed Celestial head was, I think, something that popped out of Andy's mind one day. Similarly, one morning, I said "what about a talking Russian dog?". We run with these things and develop them together. It's hard to pin down where exactly they originate.

How much involvement will Nova have with the new Guardians of the Galaxy series?

DnA; He won't be joining the team, but he will play a part into its creation and work with it when necessary. The Guardians are going to be Peter Quill's brainchild, and Rich will back his friend's efforts all the way. Expect Cosmos and Knowhere to appear too.

With the number of different artists that have drawn Nova so far, has it affected the way you write the stories or scripts?

DnA: Not really. All the artists have been great, and once we start working with them, we try to play to their particular strengths, but we wouldn't say we've changed anything just to fit in with an artist.

With Nova's past history with the Skrulls, will Nova be involved in the Secret Invasion event?

DnA: Yes. It's in the planning stages now. We don't think he COULDN'T be. He's a cosmic champion, the last centurion, and he's from Earth. The Skrulls will make sure he's involved.

A lot of Nova fans (including myself) are extremely thrilled with the direction you've taken Nova during your run and we hope you'll both be around a very long time. How long do you see yourselves staying on the title?

DnA: Right now, as long as they let us and as long as you all keep buying the book! We love Nova and we're loving this chance to take Richard to bigger and better heights!
