Nova Express was a weekly magazine, consistently critical to Costumed adventurers and a political antagonist of the New Frontiersman.

It was funded by Pyramid Deliveries[1] meaning that perhaps it belonged to Veidt Enterprises, like most other things. Doug Roth was a journalist of that magazine.[2][1]

  • (Before Oct 16) "How Sick is Dick? After 3rd Presidential Heart Op?"[3][2]
  • (Sat, Oct 19) "Dr. Manhattan Cancer Link New Evidence; Inside: Janey Slater Speaks" - It made a connection between Dr. Manhattan and cancer.[2]
  • (Sun, Oct 27) "Superheroes in the News: The spirit of '77" Regarding the re-emergence of superheroes.[1] After the revelation that Rorschach stacked NF issues, Doug Roth criticized both him and the paper, drawing links between the masked adventurers and Ku Klux Klan.[4]

Trivia

The name comes from a novel by William S. Burroughs of the same name.

It seems that Nova is issued every week-end, but it is not clear whether it comes on Saturday or Sunday. The belated issue on Dr. Manhattan comes on Saturday afternoon, but Bernard comments on the issue of the "spirit of '77" on Sunday.

The title "Spirit of '77" refers to the American expression Spirit of '76.
