    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jun 18, 2014

    SILVER SURFER is becoming something special. Unlike past Surfer comics, Dan Slott and Mike Allred are giving us something different. Something that will keep you on the edge of your seat during the action scenes and make you laugh in between. Along with Laura Allred's colors, this is a comic that takes you away from where ever you're at when you're reading. It allows you to get pulled into the story and you can just sit back and have a great time. That's exactly the sort of comic we need from time to time. "To me, my board!" You'll never look at the Silver Surfer the same way again. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Jake Tanner Jun 22, 2014

    This was only issue #3, so if you haven't been reading Silver Surfer"shame on you! This book has something for everyone and is easily my favorite book over at Marvel right now. The story is both epic and entertaining, but this book's sense of humor and fun are what truly shine. This creative team has already hit their stride only 3 issues in to the book and it's something you won't want to miss! Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Jun 22, 2014

    Slott and Allred have found a great balance between the two types of worlds and as this third issue wraps up the first story line, the pieces are now in place for this series to move forward. As the tagline for the title says, “Anywhere and Everywhere–Hang On!”. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Jun 20, 2014

    This issue wraps up the first arc, and in doing so sets a tone for the rest of the series. Slott has injected a little levity into a character that can sometimes feel a little stiff, and Allred's style, with its winks and nods to the Marvel comics of his youth, continues to bring a levity to the property. This book, operating as it is on the fringes of the Marvel U, can go anywhere and do anything it wants " and boy do I want it to do just that. Read Full Review

    Go get this. You will thank me. Although I'm not sure there's anyone not following this series already. But if there is, start reading more things online because you are behind the times. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Jun 19, 2014

    And the art by the Allreds is just insane. The radiant colors combined with the beautifully detailed art is just amazing. I could go on, but almost every page is frame worthy, and it's not just beautiful, either. There's an inventive use layout and the Surfer's reflective body. It all works, and this kind of art is what you read comics for. It's nice for me to see the writing hitting the same level as the art. This book is like nothing else Marvel puts out, and that alone means you should take a look. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 18, 2014

    Make no mistake, it's Mike and Laura Allred who really tie this book together. As with their FF run, the Allred tap into that vibrant, old-school Jack Kirby vibe while also blazing new territory and delivering a book wholly unlike anything else at Marvel. The sheer amount of time that must have gone into rendering each wide shot of the Impericon is staggering. So if this issue was a little late in arriving, the Allreds can certainly be forgiven.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Jun 23, 2014

    I can think of worse series to invest in than a modern-day, sci-fi fairy tale, especially one that's written and drawn with such cheeky warmth. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Jun 18, 2014

    There is no doubt that somehow Dan Slott has imbued himself with the power cosmic to create this tale. Hes accompanied by the perfect art/colors pair to demonstrate his humor in fitting visuals. Silver Surfer along with Dawn Greenwood (and Toomie) are off on a grand adventure filled with humor and action, and with this only being the 3rd issue its a great time to jump on and go along for the ride.

    Fanboys Inc - Dave Buesing Jun 19, 2014

    Allreds art is always a hit for me, and Dan Slotts humor and light-hearted cosmic playfulness creates a joyful three-part entry into the Silver Surfer. If you love Doctor Who, or have simply been craving solo Silver Surfer stories, youll enjoy what Slott and Allred are doing with the character of Norrin Radd and his new companion Dawn.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jun 19, 2014

    Silver Surfer #3 is a release that's hard to ignore. It is campy? Yes. It is good? Sure. And for that reason this entry births just enough possibilities to earn a recommendation. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jun 23, 2014

    Dan Slott delivers on what he said this book was all along: a love story. The Impericon's origin is the kind of gooey, heartfelt sci-fi that typifies Doctor Who but it works well here because it's balanced by the Surfer and Zed's fight. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jun 27, 2014

    Hopefully Slott will pull back a bit on the oversell of Dawn and simply allow her to accompany and enjoy the adventures the Surfer can provide while providing a character to explain various parts of the Surfer's existence such as the Power Cosmic. For fans. Read Full Review
