I like my Silver Surfer a bit more philosophical and introspective. This was a bit too action heavy. Disappointing.

Silver Surfer is probably one of the most underrated superheroes in the Marvel universe. It's not for the dearth of good storylines, but the fact that he's just not the kind of character that everyone would gravitate to. Origin stories are always interesting, but stories that humanize superheroes are the best. Devolution did a great job of combining a solid story with stunning artwork. If there is one story Marvel fans need to read on Silver Surfer, this is it.

Nice wee short story with everyone's favourite cosmic surfer, the cosmic stories are always epic and fantastical as they should be and Greg Pak story and the trio of artists for the series done it justice. Very enojoyable

This is a mostly cool injection of the cosmic side of the Surfer into a gritty, action-movie "race against time" plot that gives the hapless Norrin Radd the chance to shine in some new settings. The art by Segovia, Tolibao, and Coello is effective but short on the psychedelic visuals that I love in the early stories (and Slott and Allred's current run).

I kind of lost interest before the big climax, which unfortunately teases an exciting new direction for the Surfer (one that fits with his role a

Ive never read a Silver Surfed or Fantastic Four story before but this was really enjoyable, I suppose. It was weird cos I'm not a big fan of cosmic storylines but I dug this. It did get sorta weird tho so that's why this is more of a 3.5. Who the hell are those kids and what is Spiderman doing in the Fantastic Four???

Probably the overall best Silver Surfer story I have read. Just enough cosmic intrigue without being too far out there and philosophical, humanizes the Silver Surfer a bit, and the art was very good. Highly recommended series. I need to go back and read more of the original Silver Surfer comics.
I am a huge Silver Surfer fan and I wanted to see how this storyline went. It was pretty good but I am a little behind on all the other characters like the Fantastic Four. Overall it was a cool read.

This may be a one and a half star book but some of the art was pretty sweet and so I give it 2 rather than 1 star.
It started off kinda promising and then was just kinda Bleh by the end.
