    Each page reads smoothly even with the comic's distorted artwork and blends together into one of Marvel's most intriguing debuts out as of late. Read Full Review

    A very solid story on the Surfer's past featuring Prodigal. A massive battle of superpowers, and super-powered egos. Read Full Review

    SO much better than the first issue, this read very smoothly and the art was consistent throughout. Nice gratuitous splash page of Galactus. The dialogue wasn’t as sophomoric and clumsy as the first issue and I liked that the seemingly invincible Prodigal was put down by the Surfer, leading to some pent up brotherly revenge in the next issue.

    What a joy, I really liked how things have progressed from the first issue. It was interesting to look at where he came from and Prodigal is no ordinary hero, he's a real badass to confront Galactus face to face, and I absolutely loved Prodigal and Silver Surfer battle with each other. He seems foolhardy and prideful for someone who's very old and may be that's why he is more likeable, not to mention his elemental power sets. The comic delivers timely comedic expressions while giving readers more information of what Prodigal is capable of doing on his own, no wonder Silver Surfer has made an acquaintance with him.

    A solid issue. I don't find anything very original about this, but it's an enjoyable read.

    The basic premise isn't all that memorable, but the gorgeous art and the sharp comedic edge to the dialogue combine to make it a pretty fun read.

    Irrelevant. There is good art but the story does not improve. This is your typical Galactus Silvef Surfer story pre Silver Surfer giving up as herald. Who thought this story justified a three issue mini is beyond me.
