So I’m reading my copy of Nova Classic, ‘cause that’s what all the cool adults do, when I come to issue five of the original ‘70s Nova series and a section on the Comics Code jumps out at me.
Richard Rider, AKA Nova the Human Rocket, visited Marvel’s offices hoping to get a comic book title based on himself. Amazingly, Nova wants the comic to show all his sexual conquests (“Necking and Such”) rather than be censored by that pesky Comics Code. Sadly, of course, the “Necking and Such” adult content would never appear. Not wanting to miss a lost opportunity nor bow to past censorship, I’ve decided to reconstruct these possible lost scenes using actual dialog from the Nova comics, Enjoy!
