    This is a refreshing take on one of the oldest match ups in the Marvel Universe. Silver Surfer #9 was perfect artwork and a well told story. The creative team is firing on all cylinders and there is potential for issue #10 to be even better. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Spencer Maxwell Feb 19, 2015

    Michael Allred's art is so impressive, it almost completely eclipses Slott's script. His pop art style is reminiscent of the comics of old, and breathes life into the cosmic realm. Every creature and element of the background is so unique. There's nothing singularly that pops out, but rather an eye-catching blend of a piece for each panel. He gives the character's more expression and depth than the script allows for. Allred's style lends itself well for Slott's lighthearted script, and adds an extra layer of cuteness to it.

    Slott and Allred have proven they can handle the heavy stuff just as well as the space-pop romance.Will the conclusion in the next issue finally bring some closure to the Surfer's relationship with Galactus? Probably not, but odds are it'll be a pretty exciting comic. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Matt Little Feb 23, 2015

    The issue ends with everyone in a very dark place and, with one more issue to go in this arc, it's the worst that things have looked for anyone in this run. Norrin has been stripped of his powers, Galactus is possibly coming to destroy Newhaven and Dawn's previous fear about leaving her hometown may prove to be correct. This group is firing on all cylinders right now. If nothing else, this run on "Silver Surfer" should go down as a true cult classic and this issue is a great single issue example of what this crew can create. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Feb 19, 2015

    It's not bad by any means, but it does lack the charm that usually pervades Slott's finely tuned scripts. Thankfully, any qualms are easily put to rest with every Michael Allred panel. Read Full Review
