    Doom Rocket - Molly Jane Kremer Apr 30, 2015

    This title has been just as consistently enjoyable as that flagship DC book has been, but full of a positivity and light that doesn't tend to grab as many headlines as all that Bat-pathos. Silver Surfer seems to fly under many readers' radar, yet it's a book that should be on everybody's pull list. If this oversized, engrossing issue brings more attention to the ever-superb series, every "exhausting" flip of the comic is eminently worth it. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Amy Brander Apr 28, 2015

    So in the interest of being unbiased I will let you know that if you intend to read this comic in digital form, please read it on a hand held device with the Screen Rotation turned off. Due to the nature of this plot which transcribes into the layout of the artistry, the one and only criticism I have, is that it's unreadable with Screen Rotation on. It isbest read in paper format. For me this is not actually a downfall as I prefer to collect and read my comics on paper. I suppose I am sort of old fashion and although I will read my advanced reviews in digital form, I collect and re-read the ones I'm passionate about on paper. Why? There's something about holding a comic in your hands that connects you to the creators. Suddenly you feel the integrity, creativity and passion that goes into every panel, every stroke, every line of the comic. Read Full Review

    Overmental - Logan Dalton Apr 29, 2015

    Silver Surfer #11 is an example of a story that could only be done in comics and is a career highlight for both Dan Slott and Mike Allred. Read Full Review

    That said, with so many endless variations of the same stories in comics, it's pretty amazing to see a set of creators be this ambitious with the actual form. The sheer audacity here - combined with a storytelling conceit that really makes this comic feel truly oversized - makes Silver Surfer #11 a book you should check out. But if you do, a warning - just be careful you can find your way out. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Matt Little Apr 29, 2015

    As the Marvel Universe lurches into "Secret Wars," this title will thankfully continue through the summer, offering more offbeat goodness during high tide. This title is its own cosmic sandbox, telling standalone stories that haven't really tied into the greater storytelling fabric of the Marvel canon, which may mean readers have missed out on this trippy comic so far. Given the spotlight coming down on the entire line, it's a great moment to really go big with a weird idea. More so than any other issue, "Silver Surfer" #11 is an exciting experiment from a creative team that pushes each other to do weirder and more fun things. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Kelly Richards May 4, 2015

    There aren't many writers bold enough to even consider telling the exact same story from different perspectives within the same book. Even fewer would actually think to do it. Silver Surfer #11 stands as a testament to what a creative team can achieve if they are willing to take a risk. Interesting, engaging, and with a twist that is both literal and visual, this may be some of Slott and Allred's finest work to date. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Jessica Boyd Apr 29, 2015

    For those who love beautiful art, puzzle stories and fun in comics, this is the story for you. Even if you find yourself initially vexed, you will lose yourself in the cyclical nature of the story. The clever use of art to create the cycles and the ideology of the power of choice is driven home on multiple levels. It's a concept that will leave you both smiling and concerned for what lays ahead. Read Full Review

    If you think you've seen every type of storytelling in comics before, you haven't read this issue yet. Dan Slott and Mike Allred take us on a visual journey that literally forces you to follow along in the comic in a way you haven't before. Bringing the previous story arc to a close, we are treated to a delightfully new approach to the story that fits in with everything that's going on. It's refreshing to see creators able to try something different. The process might feel slightly like a novelty but it does add some fun and excitement to the story and simply changes the way you read the comic. It forces you to change the way you'd read it. It's a successful experiment that you'll want to check out. Dan Slott and Mike Allred are having too much fun working on this book and that's definitely to our advantage. Read Full Review

    I wanted to like this, and I do love Allred's artwork, but the gimmick of a loopy maze was downright annoying.

    Great Scott! How the Surfer team pulled off this book is a feat and a commendable at that. The way you move around and interact the book is fun and welcome, and the unique storytelling method is as curious as it is cool. seeing the story from different perspectives is interesting, but also entertaining as each characters monologue adds unique and welcome developments. The writing here is great, especially when Slott goes meta and engages with the concept of the reality of the comic itself. It's so intricate it's almost hard to explain, and definitely a comic you need to pick up, in print, for yourself. Also the two page splash towards the end, is an exuberant expression of pure joy and color, that is truly the finest of the Allreds work yet. If you haven't read this comic yet, now's the time.
