Marvel Comics EIC Axel Alonso: "Who's gonna be big in 2012? Nova."




Over at CBR's latest "Axel-In-Charge," Marvel EIC Axel Alonso mentioned the Human Rocket in regards to a question about wanting Captain Marvel back, with Marvel taking their time on a particular project but having it pay off.

Alonso mentions how Marvel did this with characters such as Moon Knight and even Deadpool. He then adds Nova to the list.

"That's one of the most fun aspects of the job -- watching a character you love find an audience. Who's gonna be big in 2012? Nova. Pick up the "Point One" giant-sized one-shot for a clue why."

Per the norm with Alonso, he is short on words when it comes to Nova.

The good thing is you don't have to wait long to find out what he is talking about as Point One hits next week!

In regards to Captain Marvel, Joe Quesada mentioned something similar at the recent New York Comic Con.
