Going back to the original series, the first Nova No. 1 hit stands in 1979, so I’m sure the Skywalker family and the Jedi universe was a pulse in the project…

JL: I just remember reading those books and that they were a lot of fun and that he was a new young hero, and as time went by he was really good at what he’d done and become a champion in the universe. This is a chance to get back to ground zero with that story and tell it with a new hero with a new attitude. The comic-book series takes place [chronologically] well before the animated series, but hopefully for people watching the animated series, Nova is someone that folks will have some investment in. In the animated series, Sam has been Nova for a while and he understands his powers and he’s met other superheroes. When we start the comics series, he doesn’t know what a Nova is and watching Sam Alexander get the Nova power is like watching Peter Parker get bitten by the radioactive spider.
