    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Mar 8, 2023

    Silver Surfer: Ghost Light #2 is a book that feels classic but is not old-fashioned. So much of this issue seems to contain feelings and sentiments that occurred in horror films in the Cold War era. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Michelle Tongue Mar 8, 2023

    A touch of old school never hurt anybody. Showing what comics were to what they are now, how far we have come, and always remembering characters that get us there. I enjoyed this book. And I am looking forward to Silver Surfer: Ghost Light #3. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 22, 2023

    Silver Surfer: Ghost Light covers a lot of ground here and has a density to it that a lot of books these days typically do not. But it never feels overstuffed or crowded in a way that makes it feel like a slog. You want to know the next bit, to see the dialogue shape things in how characters react, and to watch as the artwork builds the tension or expands upon the revelations. I'm excited to see what comes of this and what Al's path is, as well as the kids, because you can see the potential for something from so far back in Marvel's history to be a key part of what's new and interesting.

    Silver Surfer: Ghost Light #2 spends a big chunk of its run time recapping what happened to Al Harper way back in the earliest days of the Silver Surfer comic back in the late 60s. You can't really blame writer John Jennings for wanting to go this route given so few readers will know Harper's backstory, but it does pull the focus away from the Toni & Josh angle that made the first issue such a standout.
