Marvel Preview: Secret Wars Tie-In Infinity Gauntlet #2 Introduces the Newest Nova
It's Nova versus Thanos in the newest issue of the Secret Wars tie-in series, Infinity Gauntlet #2, as the central family in the middle of an alien insect apocalypse continues the struggle to survive.

This series both looks and feels different from most Marvel titles, as it tells a more straightforwardly dystopian story of a family navigating a post-apocalyptic urban environment (while trying to avoid giant killer bugs), rather than focusing too much on superheroes. This is reflected in the artwork by Dustin Weaver, as it is much darker and more classically beautiful than most superhero comics.

But in true Marvel fashion, there's no shortage of connectivity, as it's both a Secret Wars tie-in and has extremely close ties to upcoming Marvel movies, especially Avengers: Infinity War, which will focus primarily on Thanos reuniting the Infinity Stones to form the Gauntlet. It also introduces a new member of the Nova Corps, which appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy along with the introduction of Thanos.
