The sentinel of the spaceways walks the Earth once more, a stranger feared by many. Only the HIGH EVOLUTIONARY understands his true potential, but the Evolutionary’s mysterious grand design may cost the Surfer everything and change the cosmic balance forever! He’s traded blows with Thor and matched wits with Mephisto, but can the herald of Galactus survive the judgment of NORRIN RAND, the man within the Silver Surfer? It’s a character-defining epic showing the Silver Surfer as you’ve never seen him before, brought to you by “Planet Hulk” writer Greg Pak and “Dark Wolverine” artist Stephen Segovia.

    Overall, this story was a great start to this self contained series (and, honestly, would have been a great start to an ongoing as well.) It seeks to do something new and different with the character and Pak's love for him really shines through the characters words and actions here, and you can't ask for much else from a super hero book than that.

    It's too early to tell how the story is going to play out, and whether or not we'll see the Surfer regain his apparently-missing conscience - but so far, this mini-series is off to a good start. Here's hoping the finish lives up to it! Read Full Review

    I was really hoping Silver Surfer #1 would meet my lofty expectations for what a good Silver Surfer story is. Thankfully, it did. This first issue features great scripting, eye-catching art and a cliffhanger that has me excited for next month's installment. I can't ask for anything more from a debut issue. Read Full Review

    Pak's take on the Silver Surfer seems to be heading in a strong direction from this first issue. He has a good story that's grounded on Earth where the Surfer's boundaries are accessible to a larger cast of villains. If you have ever had any interest at all in the character but were afraid to jump into the cosmic stories over the past few years then this issue may be your starting point. This is definitely worth picking up. Read Full Review
