FINAL ISSUE

Novaverses - the new spin off fan fiction anthology series from the folks that do Nova619 - stories written by Nova fans for fans!

"Not all Universes are the same." Pretty familiar words to most comic fans as the concept of alternate universes where either major or minor differences separate them from what's known as the "prime reality" are commonplace to many comics books, books and tv series.

Marvel had their own take on this, called What If? And Nova himself wasn't a stranger to that title, appearing in two stories. The first written by his creator, Marv Wolfman back in issue 15, Vol. 1 called "What if Nova had been Four other People?" posed the idea that instead of Rich Rider being the Human Rocket, we had Peter Parker, some unknown woman with revenge on her mind, a homeless man fights of an alien invasion and last a unknown villain uses the Nova Force to become Crimelord. Later, Rich himself gets the spotlight in issue 36 in the alternate take from Rom 24 where he endeavours to keep his powers no matter the cost to family or friends or the safety of Earth.

I've always liked the idea of alternate realities; so when I launched the fan comic Nova619, I always intended to set it in a different reality and show how Rich's life after the end of the Annihilation War could have gone; difference being that is an ongoing (sort-of), whereas What If were "singular" eps showing just glimpses.

So now we have our new spin-off, another Nova fan product this time dealing with different universes with different Novas, just like that first story in What If? 15, in fan fiction rather than comic pic format. Good thing with written form is you can delve deeper into both plot and characters that comic medium can sometimes allow, but fret not Team619 contributors still play a role both doing illustrations for the stories and cover art.

And that's only the beginning! With different Universes and Different Novas - this is a trip that can never stop and is without limits.
