An Interview With Nova's Gerry Duggan!
A Nova Prime Page Exclusive

As Nova's series rockets into its second year, the Nova Prime Page was able to ask series writer Gerry Duggan a few questions about Nova.

Gerry was very generous and took the time to answer some questions about his run on the Nova series! I'd like to thank him for his time and answers!

With the Nova series going into its second year, how would you sum up Sam Alexander's journey so far?

Like every 15 year old kid, I think he thinks some days will never be beat and on others, they think life won't go on. He's effectively lost his father and gained a huge responsibility and finds himself without a mentor.

But I think his journey is hopeful - he's survived big threats, he's saved countless people.

As Sam becomes more active as a hero, his personal life seems to suffer due to his actions. A paraphrase of Spider-Man's great powers/great responsibilities matra comes to mind "With An Awesome Helmet Comes Awful Consequences". Will things ever get better for poor Sam? :)

Well...not before they get worse. Ha! We did just find the line "it sucks having responsibility get in the way of all this power" which was an obvious nod, but it's a thought that Sam would have. He doesn't carry the burden of an Uncle Ben, but he also never received that wisdom.

Sam still does the right thing, he's not any more selfish than the average 15 year old. He's a fun character. Underdogs are fun.

We haven't seen much of the Black Novas' back story other than they appear to have been a black ops division of the Nova Corps. Given the similarities in color of the Black Nova helmets and the mad Xandarian SuperNova's helmet, is there a connection between the two and will we see SuperNova again since he had returned in Abnett and Lanning's Nova series?

You will learn some more about the Black Novas in an upcoming story. Sam will move his father's tale to the forefront and soon, too. Beyond that I don't want to say much except that I've read and enjoyed the Abnett/Lanning Nova comics too, and I've started to pull threads from them - like Cosmo returning in Nova 14.

As a philosophy I want to make new toys for the sandbox, I still haven't written Hydra Bob into Deadpool and I've turned in over 30 scripts. He's a fun character, and we wrote him into the Infinite Comic, and we're not against using old characters but with both Deadpool and Nova, I wanted to start introducing new characters. I think that's fun.

Now, I shall undercut myself completely: some older faces will be turning up.

How closely do you coordinate the events of your Nova stories with those Christopher Yost is doing in New Warriors?

I would hate to step on his plans by asking if I could draft off his success until at least issue 4. Maybe 3. The real answer is - he's just kicking off his story and I have a lot to do in Original Sin. After that - who knows?

As the Original Sin event draws closer, how will it affect Sam Alexander and how closely will the Nova series tie-in with the Original Sin series?

Big pieces of the Marvel Universe will be changed, but for Sam it's very personal. Uatu was his friend. Until the New Warriors recently Sam could only talk to his mom about being Nova, and that's kind of uncool for a 15 year old. Utatu didn't say much, but he was a good listener.

Original Sin is a gut punch. He loses his friend, he learns a MAJOR SECRET, and it propels him into a mystery. Then Nova gets back to Earth and is handed a big, steaming pile of Sam Alexander problems.

Life is often not fair, but it is interesting. The tightrope is making it fun, and you have to credit Wacker, Nick Lowe, Ellie Pyle, Devin Lewis in editorial and all our great artists. Paco Medina/Juan and Baldeon/Pallot, are all brilliant, so is David Curiel. When you're flying through Curiel's space - it looks like you want space to be - there's Hubble, and then there's David. Everybody from Paco, to David on down - they're really pouring a lot of love onto these pages, and I think it shows.

Looking beyond Original Sin, what can readers look forward to reading in upcoming issues?

A mixture of space adventures, family situations and some changes in the family's situation. You will even see someone else wear Sam's helmet. Then we'll be on Earth for a short time before it's back into space on a very personal mission for Sam. Some fun guest stars from a few of the larger team books might have good reason to show up in Nova, too.
