    I enjoyed this series a lot as it was able to work into some material from the very earliest of days of the Fantastic Four. It did feel like the Surfer was a secondary character – at best – at times but it was a good way to utilize him in this context and to add a little more to his larger story and connections. Al and his situation is certainly intriguing and getting as much as we did with the Stranger – and showing a path forward to something truly interesting with what he, Sombra, and the others can tap into – is worth exploring. It was a solidly written book throughout that may have ended a bit familiar but the characters made it all stand out and I hope this team is able to mess with it all again in the future since there's so much that can be done with it all.

    Call it a fun revival of classic Silver Surfer lore and very little else. Read Full Review

    There IS room in the Marvel pantheon for another high-powered character. (Honestly, theres always room for that. There are endless epic, Earth-shaking conflicts for heroes to deal with.) The issue, though, is that Ghost Light is lost in a kind of nebulous story that isnt adequately fusing the cosmic with the personal and psychological. The worst element in the entire series may be the main title character. Silver Surfer himself doesnt seem all that interesting in the fifth issue of the series, which is too bad. Hes been a part of some remarkable plots in the past. Read Full Review
