P:R Approved: Ed McGuinness’ Nova!

Note: P:R has featured Ed McGuinness‘ Nova redesign in the past, but now with the build-up to a new solo series we’ve seen some more design sketches that we can’t help but show off. This turnaround shows a clear look at the redesign, and also more explanation on how the new helmet works. Great stuff! – Chris A.

  1. I actually liked what they did with the character. Streamlined the updated look and gave it back it’s more classic look, but still miss Richard Rider.

  2. With a turnaround as simple as this, I don’t know why they didn’t hire McGuinness to redesign the new JLA. Lee’s must be a hassle.

  3. Either way, I approve of the simplicity and dynamic shape of it. I can see a lot of toku influence and a great pallet. I want to read this comic

  4. I actually thought this was the design from Ultimate Spider-Man. Great look in the series, should work well in print, too.

  5. I miss Richard Rider, but this is a really slick design and a big improvement over the last Nova suit (so many spiky things in that one…). In the Comics Should Be Good blog, there is the Ron Frenz rule, which essentially states that the simpler a design is, the more memorable and effective it is. There are exceptions, of course, but this isn’t one of them.
