    Silver Surfer Annual #1 is an excellently put-together tale of Norrin Radd in his days as a herald, and it puts for the big-idea philosophy which has always been part of the Silver Surfer character and mythos. The depiction of the Surfer is faithful and endearing, the story is solid, and the art is great. This one earns a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

Araujo does a good job of trying to communicate that especially as Surfer hears the song of the civilization he has decided to doom. But Sacks doesn't quite get us there because we've already been there years before - he doesn't have anything new to add. Read Full Review
