Issue #5 has a cute bullpen sequence. Nova goes to the Marvel offices to interview with Marv Wolfman and Sal Buscema about getting his own comic. John Verpoorten makes a unflattering appearance (nicknamed “Jumbo John”), Marv namedrops another book he writes (Tomb of Dracula), Archie Goodwin stops by, and we see the names of all the Editors-in-Chief crossed out on Archie’s door. Also, Nova asks about necking.
Storywise, he fights Tyrannus in #5.
Marv Wolfman and Sal Buscema
Grade: C+, bordering close on a B-.
