A week ago, I was at a local writing con. (Conflux 3; excellent.)
I got to talking with this guy about Nova: Annihilation. I mentioned how it looked like he was going Dark Phoenix on us. The guy thought that was an interesting reading.
Then I mentioned Nova opening the stargate (one of Phoenix's first tricks) and how the artist had made it look like the Phoenix. He didn't know what I was talking about.
The next day, I showed him the issue, and he totally agreed with me.
... this is a much better story, if you know I was talking to Dan Abnett, who wrote the freakin' issue.
He decided to talk to his editor about it.
