SILVER SURFER #200! Oversized anniversary issue!
•  After Norin Radd's massive status quo change in the 50th Anniversary issue (no spoilers!), it's now Dawn Greenwood's turn. With one simple act of kindness, the Surfer may have forever changed her world.
•  What's going on? Why is San Francisco overrun by monsters? And what wall-crawling, web-spinning guest-star is swinging by to help out? (Okay, we'll tell you that one! It's Peter Parker, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN!)
•  All this and tons of cosmic weirdness, surprise super heroes, and special stories as we celebrate the 200th Silver Surfer issue!

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Sep 1, 2016

    Once again the creative team of Dan Slott and Michael Allred rise to the challenge, giving us a story that's tied to the present, yet also manages to celebrate the history of that hero. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Sep 3, 2016

    Dan Slott is doing his best work in a long time on Silver Surfer. His characters are rich and enticing, and this issue hits harder than most when it comes to the very human struggle in a Silver Surfer comic. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Sep 5, 2016

    This routine praise of Silver Surfer is getting a bit redundant, isn't it? Here's another expertly rendered and plotted, super colorful issue of Silver Surfer, and this one's got Spider-Man in it. Also fake-out versions of well-known Marvel villains. And a great, human story about...er, a human. If you're already reading this series, then you probably love it. And if you're staying away from this series for some reason, then you're probably stupid. Get on the surfboard. Read Full Review

    The Lost Lighthouse - thelostlighthouse Sep 1, 2016

    Speaking as someone who always liked the Surfer as a kid but hasn't picked it up since this was a great one off. It's perfect for someone who appreciates the silverage of comic books with art that really brings this home: Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 1, 2016

    The emotional fallout of this issue should give the series the momentum it needs as it moves towards new settings and conflicts. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Dan Clark Sep 6, 2016

    Silver Surfers tone is so specific that a run of the mill art style would not work. Luckly Mike Allreds art is the exact opposite of run of the mill. It has this unique look that somehow looks both classic and modern at the same time. This Silver Surfer series has an atmosphere unlike any other Marvel book right now and Allreds art is a huge reason why. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Sep 12, 2016

    Speaking of the cover, Silver Surfer #6 actually features a confusing numbering that proclaims itSilver Surfer #200 because it is the 200thissue of Silver Surfer that Marvel Comics has published in their history. However, since those issues have been split over numerous volumes, the 200thissue of Silver Surfer all timeis technically Silver Surfer #6. Its nice that they have acknowledged this milestone. Additionally, there is a cover gallery in the back of the issue of all 200 covers. They are small so its hard to really see them. At the same time, it may be enough to get some readers of Silver Surfer #6 to go back and check out some of the Surfers previous adventures. Read Full Review

    This issue is good, not great. The encounter between Dawn and [spoiler] is somewhat unrealistic, the problem resolution is rather simplistic and Spider-Man's appearance is quite enjoyable. But, as the landmark 200th issue, it's definitively a letdown, because there is nothing special whatsoever, apart for the bonus 8 pages (that obviously raise the price), the letter column and the cover gallery. Regarding the "massive status quo change" the Surfer underwent, it's really unimportant and I feel like they're already turning back. Ultimately, the series' direction is confused. Nevertheless, the Allreds' art is A+++, detailed and colorful, completely worth the delays. I'm afraid I might drop one more Marvel series soon...
