Well, here we are again, five years on and another Nova619 season is about to go online! Of course things have really changed a lot since last time 619 was on the net; the Nova fan base has new facets itself and the status quo at Marvel regarding all things Cosmic isn’t as rosy as those golden years many of us “elder fans” enjoyed when we were kids.

Anyway, new season is here after 2 years n preparation, our longest, more episodes and our 5th Anniversary, and in the case of one upcoming episode, tied to this year’s 39th anniversary of the Man Called Nova, who goes 40 in 2016! And we’ll be online right up to September next year – that’s if some of the creative teams finish on time!

Now old Nova fans will know Nova619 in some aspects – those of you who read it online at Nova Prime Page, who continue to host it (thanks Nova64!) where you can download each new (and previous) episodes in handy PDF’s files to keep for free. Of course slight downside we lost one other host site but you can catch eps to read online also at my group, Nova Prime DA, where most of our freelance and amateur artists reside at Deviant Art. Because one thing that ensures Nova619 keeps going, apart from avid devotion to keep Rich Rider alive and well (in our little pocket universe) is the sheer passion fan artists have to draw the human rocket.

Many aspire to become comic book artists so when you read any of the eps, take note the talents involved. We have a great crop each season from folks all across the planet and this year is no exception. In fact this time we have lots of new guys like Emiliano Correa (Argentina), Al Whincup (Canada), Joao Rodri (Portugal), Anthonie Wilson (Australia), Ryan Mitchell (Canada), Cedric Lab (France), Joey Jarin and Joe Singleton (USA), Richard Adams (UK), Tito Miranda/ Will Egli and Sarah (Hawaii), Art Lenn (Holland) Don Armstrong (Canada), Emre Aktuna (Turkey), Raz Xion (USA), Dan Homerstone (UK), Juan Samu (Spain), Philip Steele (USA) and many more for cover art taking part. And they’ve impressed me with their passion and commitment to drawing my version of Nova which I hope you like. Additionally we also have new plotter in the form of Rob Shalda (USA), who is shaping our Classic Nova 619 eps!

However, like me, head scripter, we still have some old guard taking part in Team 619 – such as 619’s oldest serving regulars Jason Heichel (USA), Israel Huertas (Spain), Chris Anderson (USA), Jasmin Steele (USA) and Byron Brewer (USA) who writes the new Wonder Worlock back up feature!

So, what can you except for this season? Well to sum it up simply it’s divided into 2 halves, and I will mention this run has the largest amount of 619 eps ever done – 16 projects including 2 specials so yes been very busy, hard schedule since beginning in April 2014. The first half is a series of single story eps, each one a showcase for a particular Nova619 character – so you’ll read stories featuring Peter Quill and the crew of the UDI Adora (The Right Stuff/ Within), the origins of big bads Sun Prime (Sun Ascendant) and Dark Nova (The Recruit) as well as 2 Classic Nova619 stories (Night of the Jaguar and the X-mas Special). Don’t worry though Rich Rider/Nova619 is still around, he’s in the first ep (Sins of the Past) and crops up here and there before returning for the main arc story, The Path, (early 2016) which will finally try and tackle one of Nova fandom’s holy grails - Epyrus 7 – which neatly ends celebrating the big 4-0!
So, join me and Team 619 every third Saturday PER MONTH! Comments welcome and if you like Nova619 and think you’d like to take part in next year’s Fan Fic Special, get in touch!

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.
daz3333 Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
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.
