What If (Nova Had Been Four Other People?) #15 - Walt Simonson art

What If (Nova Had Been Four Other People?) v1 #15, 1979 - In the first of four separate stories, a woman's husband dies due to a petty thief. When suddenly given the power to become Nova, she embarks on a senseless rampage. Walt Simonson's art rarely asserts itself, allowing Bob Wiacek's inks to take over the look and feel. Even the pacing and page layouts show little effort or interest. Other artists in this issue include John Buscema, Joe Sinnott, Carmine Infantino, Ross Andru and Frank Giacoia. This is number 1 of 1 What If? issues with Simonson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Simonson or What If? issues. See also this blog's Walt Simonson checklist.
