Why It Was Awesome
The very first issue of Marvel’s next big event was everything I could hope for. It had some gorgeous art while also shedding some light on the Watcher. We learned about his history and why he only watches, never interfering, in quite a heart-wrenching story. On the flip side, the issue also shone its spotlight on the newest Nova, a character that I haven’t really followed but after reading this issue I’m quite intrigued by. Not only did this prelude set-up who are future murder victim was but it elevated the character of Nova in my mind. Terrific moments aplenty left me eagerly awaiting the grand start of the murder mystery event.
