    You think they can't top themselves and guess what? They got out and top themselves. Like the rest of you, I had hardly had time to pick my jaw up off the floor after the debut issue last month and just a few short weeks later, Cates and Moore upend the status quo all over. Read Full Review

    While there might be a few aspects of this story that were not explained, that might come later, the art makes this one of the most beautiful books that has graced the shelves in 2019. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jul 20, 2019

    Look, I can see why some people may not like this Silver Surfer: Black five-issue mini-series. The past two issues have been all sorts of moroseness and gloom. It is not super happy or joyful, but that's kind of what I like about it. I like that we are getting into the Silver Surfer's head and dealing with his inner “demons”. I can also see why some people may not like the art. It is far, far from the norm, but again, this funkiness fits right in with this story and just brings a little light to the doom and gloom, balancing it out. Silver Surfer: Black #2 also adds a nice wrinkle to the story that has me interested to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Alex Marks Jul 23, 2019

    Silver Surfer: Black #2 is a great cosmic adventure comic that can astonish both old and new 'Surfer fans. Donny Cates excels at his storytelling and Tradd Moore, with Dave Stewart, absolutely crush it in the art department. Add this book to your pull list ASAP. Read Full Review

    Donny Cates and company bring their "A" in this great issue of self reflection by the Surfer as he deals with not only the Knull, but the symbiote as well. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Jul 25, 2019

    While Donny Cates' profile has been steadily on the rise for the last couple of years, I think it may be reaching a new peak with Silver Surfer: Black. In teaming with Moore and Stewart, two artists well acquainted with weirder runs, Cates seems to have found the best synthesis of his theatrical voice and expansive scope. We still have three more issues to see if I'm fully right, but after Silver Surfer: Black #2, I am pretty confident I am. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 27, 2019

    As we saw in the first issue, further use of the power cosmic continues to effect our hero. By the end of the second issue, the Sivler Sufer's arm is completely enveloped in the black. How can he defeat Knull, and escape, without succumbing to the darkness slowly enveloping him? For fans. Read Full Review
