• Who is the NEVER QUEEN? How is the entire future of the Marvel Universe tied into her very existence? And why is she trying to DESTROY the Silver Surfer?!

•  Not kidding here. This is a very important lunch.

    Slott and the Allred's once again bring me to a new level of thinking with this month's Silver Surfer. With the influence Slott pulls from his love of Doctor Who and the Allred's old funky art style, Silver Surfer is turning out to be much better than I had hoped for. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Tyler Goulet Apr 30, 2014

    This series is fun, has an interesting co-lead character to the Surfer and, of course, has the Allreds doing art duties, all of which combine to make something immediately special. As a fan of the Surfer, its great to see something like this being allowed to thrive in the All-New world that Marvel is constantly tinkering with. Surfer is a great character and with the limitless potential for fun and adventure in Space, we can only pray to Galactus that well continue to get this series, with these creators, for a long time to come.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall May 3, 2014

    The Bottom Line: Embracing the weirdness of story and design, Slott/Allred create a fantastically trippy space adventure. Slott is showing some new sides to his writing repertoire, while the Allreds bring their signature strengths. The character of Dawn Greenwood is certainly bursting out as a great new addition, although the Surfer remains largely a reactive character to this story. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 2, 2014

    I'm in for the long haul here, and I hope that the book is, too. This issue may actually have the Surfer's series surpassing 'Hawkeye' as my favorite Marvel book, and that, as Nicolas Cage will tell you, is high praise. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Sean Ian Mills May 1, 2014

    The second issue of Dan Slott's new Silver Surfer series is a nice continuation of the story, with the Surfer on a wild, cosmic adventure, and his new best friend, Dawn Greenwood, proving that she might just be the cutest new character in comics. There's a lot of love in this new series, and the potential for a whole, heck of a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    Coming Up Comics - Timothy Merritt Apr 30, 2014

    If you enjoyed issue #1, you'll like this one as well. I, for one, am curious to see where the greater arc is headed, but I'm in this for the long haul. Slott and Allred's storytelling, along with the flashy, far-out art always makes for an entertaining read, and distinguish this book each month as one that is fun and doesn't take itself nearly as seriously as the slew of overly somber and serious books that make up most of modern comics.

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Apr 30, 2014

    Outer space in the Marvel Universe just got funky. Dan Slott, Mike Allred, and Laura Allred are showing us new sights and the Silver Surfer is fighting beings he's never come across before. It's a fun and exciting adventure as we find out more of what's really going on and as we get to know new character Dawn Greenwood. If the zany characters and action we've seen in these first two issues are any indication of what we can expect in the series, we're all in for a great time. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton May 2, 2014

    "Silver Surfer" #2 was a thoroughly fun comic. I haven't regularly read a "Silver Surfer" comic in ages, but thanks to Slott and Allred, that's about to change. Definitely good stuff and worth your time to check out for yourself. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jonathan Closner Apr 30, 2014

    The new Silver Surfer is a humorous take on a old character with new characters mixed in Dawn Greenwood is becoming my new favorite character in comics because she is a smart and relatable. The art is Mike Allred at his best making all the aliens and the humans looks distinctly different also making outer space a place I would want to explore on a surfer board. The strange ideas and the relationship of the Surfer and Dawn is what is going to make me keep coming back each month Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills May 3, 2014

    Dan Slott's delightful new Silver Surfer series continues to be delightful in the second issue as Slott tries his hand at being a little Grant Morrisony, while also proving exactly why Dawn Greenwood is a worthy addition to the Marvel Universe. She actually kind of surprised me in this issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jess Camacho May 1, 2014

    I am completely over the moon with Mike Allred's art. I love the retro, cartoon vibe that his art gives off. It fits the tone of this series perfectly because this isn't an overly serious comic book. Silver Surfer's design is sleek and Dawn is such a perfectly designed regular young woman. The highlight art wise, is the cover. It's one of the best covers of the month and definitely poster worthy. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick May 1, 2014

    The story doesnt really advance too much here, and Id like to have seen a better confrontation between the Surfer and the Never Queen, but if you like old school Marvel space stores tinged with a modern sense of the bizarre, then theres much to enjoy. I just hope it continues to establish its own identity and flies off in a more original direction, because Im still having some trouble seeing past its influences. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 5, 2014

    Speaking of wishes, Dawn's wish is underscored for the second straight issue as it both saves the Surfer from the Never Queen's wrath and further links them going forward. I'm far from sold on Dawn, but so far I'm enjoying Slott's take on the character – except for his bizarre misconception that the Surfer is human under the adamantium skin which he can remove at will (seriously WTF?). Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon May 1, 2014

    The ending is a cute little twist on expectations, but I'm eager to see Slott get back to writing the kinds of more nuanced characters we're used to seeing from him. Read Full Review
