Check Out Stephen Platt's Nova #4 Variant Cover

The seminal nineties artist covers seminal nineties writer Jeph Loeb's book about seminal nineties character Nova.



Source: Press Release

Marvel sent out this press release over the weekend showing off Stephen Platt's variant cover for Nova #4. Platt, who once drew in a style similar to guys like Rob Liefeld and Todd McFarlane, seems to have modernized his style here, though it may have to do with Sam Alexander being a kid, thus causing Platt to draw him with a regular adult anatomy instead of a super-muscly giant 1990s one.

The press release also highlights praise for the book from various websites that do not include The Outhouse. Normally, we'd accuse those sites of being in the pocket of Marvel and DC (and they are), but, honestly, Nova is actually a pretty entertaining book, despite being written by Jeph Loeb and shoehorning Marvel Movieverse stuff into the regular Marvel Universe with the introduction of the Chitauri. It's a fun, action-packed read.

Ugh. We feel so dirty now.

Here's the press release:

Superstar Artist STEPHEN PLATT Covers NOVA #4!
