    I have been hooked on Silver Surfer from the get go, I mean, its essentially about a cute Earth girl kicking it in space with her hot, silver, maybe-boyfriend – whats not to like? This book is honestly just so much fun to read and absolutely beautiful to look at. The characters are likable and multifaceted, and Dan Slott makes you care about every single one, which will make it suck even worse when he gets done killing Spideys and directs his murderous gaze in this direction.

    Comics: The Gathering

    This may be my favorite issue of the series so far because it brings the most badass celestial being to the foreground, Galactus. We see that Galactus has been tracing the Surfer’s trails through the power cosmic and an altercation is imminent. This is a bridging issue for sure, about to kick-start the most exciting arc of this new run with Galactus coming in #9. I had doubts about Allred handling Galactus when the series first started, but with today’s issue it is shown that, while fun and popy, Allred’s art can be daring and exhilarating.

    Endlessly fun and engaging, and apparently flying under the radar, Silver Surfer is a joy to read no matter which issue you decided to start from” but issue #8 comes highly recommended.

    Considering how great a job Slott has done in making the bond between Dawn and the Surfer feel natural and organic, it only makes sense that he’d show equal skill in pulling them apart. By introducing a world inhabited entirely by the survivors of Surfer’s herald days, Slott effectively opens the book to events of the past as he further explores the future. It’s a great move, especially once it’s revealed that his long distant past isn’t quite so distant as he’d initially thought.

    Over on art duties, Michael and Laura Allred continue to strut their extraterrestrial stuff, the book’s signature uniqueness again on fine display. This is a quieter issue in terms of action, but there are still a number of excellent character beats.

    Silver Surfer has been a fun and frivolous comic so far, with wacky space adventures and heroics. So some good drama is overdue, and the Silver Surfer is loaded with it.
