Silver Surfer: RequiemSilver Surfer: Requiem by J. Michael Straczynski

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


In this What If Story, the Silver Surfer learns he's dying and sets about to say goodbye to his friends, the world he adopted, and then journey home across the stars.

This story is a great graphic novel, showing the heights the genre can hit when JMS' poetic text and Esad Ribic's astoundingly beautiful art. The book follows the Silver Surfer as he meets the Fantastic Four and then Spider-man before a surprise appearance by an old friend prior to the long journey through space.

It's a thought provoking book that is sad , but is also as a celebration of an often under-appreciated character and all he represents. Grab a box of tissues and prepare to experience one of the best graphic novels I've ever read.
