An Interview With Bill Rosemann!
A Nova Prime Page Exclusive

Nova editor Bill Rosemann was very generous and took the time to answer some questions about the upcoming Nova series which spins out of the mega-cosmic event 'Annihilation'! He also provided some penciled pages from the first issue! I'd like to thank Bill for his time and answers! For more info on upcoming events at Marvel, make sure to visit marvel.com!

Andy Schmidt summed up Nova as "the Luke Skywalker of ANNIHILATION". What is the setting and theme of the new series and how would you view Nova's role now versus Annihilation?

To echo Andy -- who I proudly salute for his Herculean efforts to resurrect, revamp, and spotlight Marvel's great cosmic characters -- I will sum up Nova's post-Annihilation role as "the Lone Ranger of Marvel's sci-fi cauldron." Fighting against fear, chaos, and corruption, Richard Rider stands alone as the universe's sole (hailed and hunted) symbol of justice!

Is it more fun or more challenging working with a writing team versus working with a single writer?

Because Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning (a.k.a. DnA) are true pros, they've developed a system of working with editors that eases complications and emphasizes cohesion. So while you might suspect hiccups might develop when you're dealing with two writers across the Atlantic, I'm happy to report that DnA have been nothing but a pleasure to work with. It's my good fortune to be handed a comic involving two writers as talented, enthusiastic, experienced, and respected as DnA -- and their first issue script rocks!

Abnett and Lanning (from the Annihilation: Nova mini-series) have already been signed on for the new series (Interviewer's Note: Whoohoo!). Who are the rest of the creative team for the series?

Not only were we lucky enough to have landed DnA, but Sean Chen (Sensational Spider-Man) and Scott Hana (Ultimate Spider-Man) have joined the team as penciler and inker, respectively! The cherry on top? Cover artist Adi Granov (Iron Man). Yep, this squad is ready to blast your brain into orbit!

Due to the events in Annihilation, Nova is now the sole bearer of the Nova Force and WorldMind. Are there plans for the eventual return of the Nova Corps?

It's funny that you should ask that, because that's one of the first subjects that Rich and the WorldMind disagree about. But I'll let you figure out who is on which side of the argument. Speaking as a long-time Nova fan (but not the only voice on deciding the fate of the Corps), I believe that making Rich the last remaining Centurion -- who is burdened with containing not only WorldMind, but also the jaw-dropping Nova Force -- was a stroke of genius. When your main character has an entire army backing you up, the drama decreases -- but when you're the last man standing? Now that is interesting.

What type of supporting cast will Nova have and will any of Nova's enemies from his previous series make an appearance?

While NOVA is a solo series, we do have plans on introducing supporting players -- and the creative team is also taking a hard look at his past adventures to decide if they have something cool to do with Nova's rogues gallery. That said, we're cooking up plenty of new surprises!

Will Nova be returning to Earth early on in the series? We know he's aware of the events of Civil War but does he know what happened to his friends in the New Warriors?

By listening to captured radio and satellite transmissions, Nova does know that the superhuman Civil War broke out, but apparently he couldn't listen long enough to hear exactly what happened to his former teammates. That would make for a cool story if he ever returned to Earth, now wouldn't it?

How would you summarize the new Nova series if you were to write it as a movie trailer?

A-hem. In my best movie preview voice: In the wake of catastrophic war, one man stands as a living symbol of justice. In the past, he was one among many, now he must fight alone. Granted amazing powers, but also burdened with crushing responsibility, Earthman Richard Rider races through space, bringing hope to the fearful and punishment to the guilty! Cheered by some, hated by more, can one man police an entire universe? Make way for the Human Rocket -- beware the man called Nova!

Thanks, Bill!
