Legendary designer Fabian Nicieza and superstar artist Paco Medina soar to the stars in an action-packed Nova adventure!

“Marvel’s Voices anthologies are great opportunities to reach new audiences, and it was a pleasure to participate in Comunidades,” said Nicieza. “Loved reading the Sam Alexander version of Nova and working with the always excellent Paco Medina on the character was great fun!”

Medina also shared her emotional connection to Nova. “I am extremely proud to be part of this book. Giving voice to a character of Mexican origin like me in the Marvel universe is a unique privilege. I would like to share how I met Sam Alexander: in April 2013, I received the script for NOVA #6 at the same time I received the bad news that my mother was in the hospital with a stroke.”

He continued his story saying, “Without thinking about it, I decided to hang on for life and took my pencils and work plans so I could work on the book in the halls of the hospital for caring for my mother in the morning. I remember drawing a large phoenix for a double page spread and it was this vision that filled me with great strength when I lost my mother this That’s why Nova, Sam Alexander is such an endearing character to me, I can only see him as a great friend who has been with me in bad times and every time I see him again, I just want to give him a big hug and invite him home for lunch. Being Mexican in addition to being Latino, beyond skin color or language, is to be proud of your family and to always fight for those you love with all your heart. I’m grateful to be a part of it.
