haha Same! I only kind of new of him before that, but when he got announced for UMVC3, I finally got around to reading a bunch of his comics, and he's been one of my favs ever since. I really hope they do. Though he Nova Corps are gonna be in Guardians, actual Nova showing up would be amazing.
Yeah, getting into DC is much easier, I found. When I was a kid, I'd watch like the X-Men cartoon and stuff, but when I started reading comics, I started reading Green Lantern and Nightwing. The buddy of mine that got me into comics in the first place is a HUGE Superman fan, so he also knew more about DC, and was able to help with my transition.
Well I recall you had another Nova piece in the works and this - well, its sheer genius! I like the fact you've gone and modified the Annihilation design and made it look as if it could feature in a Nova film - love the slight nod to my own Nova619 design with the chin! Overall its a superb piece of art and more than honored to add it to the Nova Prime gallery. I'll send it to Doug at NPP as well as it deserves to be included there as well! Great Job Pryce!
