NOVA PRIME PAGE have launched an online petition to try and get Rich Rider back in his own comic! The mission statement is as follows:

"We request that Marvel Comics return Richard Rider to the Marvel Universe as Nova Prime. This is not a request to undermine any efforts related to Sam Alexander as Nova. We believe the Marvel Universe is large enough to support more than one character related to the Nova legacy.

Richard Rider was the original Man Called Nova and has almost 40 years of history with readers. The Annihilation epic and the post-event adventures of Richard Rider as Nova Prime elevated the character to a new level of popularity and stature.

Despite a lack of an ongoing title over the last few years, Rich Rider remains a fan favorite. The sales of the recent video games featuring Nova Prime and the Marvel Legends Nova figure support this.

We believe Richard Rider as Nova Prime could garner high sales in a mini-series or ongoing title with a proper creative team. All we are seeking is the opportunity be given to the character.

Thank you for your time and consideration of this petition."

So if you want to sign the petition - use the link below. Comments are also welcome!  The petition will be forwarded to Marvel Comics at a later date, initial aim to get 1000 signatures!…

And if you want to help promote the petition - feel free to download the promo art - which you can get from my st.ash archive. Just press the green download button!


As an extra feature for the petition, I've started a thread at Nova Message Board for anyone who'd like to post longer comments or support messages for the e-petition to get Rich back in a new Nova Prime title.

All posts will be collected and sent along with signatures from the e-petition to Marvel at a later date. i'll update when there's an actual cut-off date. Here's the link:



Got around finally to doing my own Tumblr blog! Its called AWESOME NOVA PRIME and it'll be a secondary home posting fan art for Nova (Rich and Sam), Nova 619 art and other Rocket related goodies. Check it out here -…



As part of the 5th Anniversary season for 2015, we're doing a few specials. More on the Summer Special below. But coming soon is the first edition of the 619 UNIVERSE HANDBOOK! This handy PDF is a guide to the Nova619 Universe with info on the 619 Universe Timeline, entries on the background on the United Defense Initiative and also profiles on some of the many 619 characters -from our universe version of Rich Rider to new characters like Father M and Sahmuq Korani - who are they, wait and see. The free guide will be online soon at NPP, ISSUU and NPDA! Look for it soon!


Also soon will be the first of 3 volumes collecting together individual 619 episodes in one handy bigger PDF! Starting with Upgrades which will collect the first ever episodes from 2010! Look out for this one too soon!



Still open until APRIL 2015 is our Summer special for next year! Back in the 90's Marvel produced a few limited one-off specials called the Marvel Swimsuit Specials. Examples of the kind of pin-up's - many done by top Marvel talents at the time can be found here:…

or via Comic Book Resources


The aim is to do a UNIVERSE 619 version with 619 Cosmic characters - either 619 equ of Marvel characters like our Nova or with our original characters. We might also possibly do a short "strip" to go into the special too.

Contributions should be A4 SIZE minimum  and if you want to in and color the art let us know! For now we'll just take names for reserved slots - so if you want to reserve a slot - please get in touch with Jason Heichel via :icononore-otaku:  with the name of the character/s (female or male or alien!) you want to do!



While we're between seasons during the prep period for the 2015 season - for those new visitors to NOVA PRIME who want to read past NOVA619 webcomics - you can read all past 2014 episodes here:…

or in the main archive online since 2010!:…

If you like to download a FREE copy of any past NOVA619 episodes they're hosted at NOVA PRIME PAGE via:

Okay. Single. Hold 2 jobs which keep me busy. Do a few volunatary stuff that keeps me busy. But besides all that I find time to contribute to NovaPrimePage (since 2000) and more recently Cosmic Book news where I'm currently co-writing a series of Nova stories set in an alternative bad-ass universe. Nova goes 18 plus- Max style.

May I ask - are you the ZAT guy? The artwork looks familiar.

ZAT?? Not sure what you mean?
Tobobobo Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2015  Hobbyist
My apologies then. There was an old fanzine called ZAT with artwork that looked a lot like yours in it (albeit 20 years ago).

Sorry to bother you.

Did it happen to be about ZX Spectrums and SAM Computers?? Done around the 1990/s - A5 format size wise. I did covers for that back in my "youth" back in the classic pen and ink period.

Well if you can do me a great well drawn pic - nice near lines and good composition as its something I've been working on for 2 years between projects then I'm happy to give you a go. Can't be fairer than that.

However, I noted you do color flats. What program do you use? I may have something for you to try out pending what you use so i could work you in with our other main colorists. D
