    Spend enough time with someone and your past is bound to resurface. This issue takes this idea and flies away with it. Will Dawn Greenwood ever forgive him? Is Toomie mad at the Surfer too? How will the Surfer fix all this? And who is closing in on his trail? Read Full Review

    I have been hooked on Silver Surfer from the get go, I mean, its essentially about a cute Earth girl kicking it in space with her hot, silver, maybe-boyfriend – whats not to like? This book is honestly just so much fun to read and absolutely beautiful to look at. The characters are likable and multifaceted, and Dan Slott makes you care about every single one, which will make it suck even worse when he gets done killing Spideys and directs his murderous gaze in this direction.

    Comics: The Gathering - SeanerSurfer Jan 13, 2015

    This may be my favorite issue of the series so far because it brings the most badass celestial being to the foreground, Galactus. We see that Galactus has been tracing the Surfer's trails through the power cosmic and an altercation is imminent. This is a bridging issue for sure, about to kick-start the most exciting arc of this new run with Galactus coming in #9. I had doubts about Allred handling Galactus when the series first started, but with today's issue it is shown that, while fun and popy, Allred's art can be daring and exhilarating. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Molly Jane Kremer Jan 19, 2015

    Endlessly fun and engaging, and apparently flying under the radar, Silver Surfer is a joy to read no matter which issue you decided to start from" but issue #8 comes highly recommended. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jan 14, 2015

    Over on art duties, Michael and Laura Allred continue to strut their extraterrestrial stuff, the book's signature uniqueness again on fine display. This is a quieter issue in terms of action, but there are still a number of excellent character beats. Dawn learning to "drive" proves an instant highlight, as does Surfer's continually amusing relationship with Toomie, who at this point is a character all his/her own. Of course, it's the book's last few pages that are sure to excite the most, Slott and Allred teasing a confrontation of truly...galactic...proportions. While not quite on par with recent issues, Silver Surfer remains the best cosmic adventure you've never been on. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 17, 2015

    Silver Surfer has been a fun and frivolous comic so far, with wacky space adventures and heroics. So some good drama is overdue, and the Silver Surfer is loaded with it. Read Full Review

    Moargeek - Tarek Heba Jan 20, 2015

    This issue is a little heavier then the rest of the series so far, but it still manages to slip in some of the quirky humor you would expect. This is a story I think everyone has been waiting for since the start of the book, and I'm really loving it now that it's here. Great read that leaves you wanting more. Read Full Review

    Still, the issue is an enjoyable first part to what was an inevitable story, and I'm looking forward to see where it goes, especially based on its final page. Read Full Review
