as if i already didn't absolutely love the silver surfer.......this book really drives it home! even if you dont know much about norrin radd, this book does a wonderful job of really emphasizing the impact that this one noble being had on the entire universe! i found myself crying at the end of every book. i do have to say that i had a difficult time swallowing some of the artwork- its wierd.....looks like the artist used too much realism and worked with oils?? not what i'm used to seeing from a marvel comic, you know? but, besides that minor setback; this book is amazing!

Good ending to the Silver Surfer saga - the art was highly stylized as opposed to hyper -realistic ... all in all : good comic for cost.

I have started to read comics again and this one was a VERY GOOD find. I grew up reading the Spiderman, Batman, Superman, etc., you name it I read it. Well one of my favorites was the Fantastic four. It reminds me of when Ben fights with Johnny and then Reed or Sue have to step in, it's just like my family. There always was some kinda of hassle but in the end Family and Freinds count. The same could be said for this book. It takes alot of what you could or have gone through and it is emontional. It is a story of what it is to have Friends and Family that you can always come back to for help or support. This is one of the GOOD BOOKS to have for a long time. I know you'll enjoy this one

This right here is a wonderful piece of affecting comic book silver (natch). Released in four separate parts (much like the similarly themed "Spider-Man: Reign") chronicling the last days of the all powerful Silver Surfer. No so all powerful, huh? Ignoring such things is an important part of believing and diving in to comics books, and it's not so necessary here as J. Michael Straczynski writes a beautiful character driven piece. The plot isn't the most original out there, being the last days of a character, and his friends reminding him just why he's so important. It's in the details. Straczynski pulls you in through the interactions with the familiar and (maybe) not so familiar faces that you may know from the normal Marvel Universe. This book brought me to tears at least twice, twice. That is to say, I've just re-read it recently and it doesn't fail me on second sitting. I'd recommend this to fans of the Surfer, to those who like a different take, and for anyone who enjoy a good bit of tragedy. PS - I'm recommending "Spider-Man: Reign", in the 'I Also Recommend' box, as it's from the same family of Marvel Knights alternative visions.
