Overview

With the strength of the Hulk and the agility of Captain America, the Silver Surfer rode the wave to Marvel Comics stardom. The Silver Surfer first appeared in Fantastic Four #48, when he came to destroy Earth for Galactus. His heart is softened, though, when he meets Alicia Masters, and he betrays his evil master. Fans couldn’t get enough of the “Sky-Rider of the Spaceways,” and in 1968 Stan Lee and John Buscema launched the Silver Surfer in his own series. Marvel Masterworks: The Silver Surfer presents numbers one through six of this incredible series.

A series of “indescribable fantasy and spine-tingling suspense” with artwork that Lee suggests, in the introduction, belongs next to the Mona Lisa, these comics tell the captivating story of how Norrin Radd became the Silver Surfer and alien prisoner from the planet Zenn-La. By issue three, the most despicable characters ever to lurk in the pages of a comic book - Mephisto - has become the Silver Surfer’s most dangerous enemy. Follow the adventures of this amazing hero in the six original comics - plus a bonus Fantastic Four issue that features the Silver Surfer - that led to an animated series and action figures.

    Wonderful Addition to My Collection: A True Masterwork

    As a longtime Silver Surfer fan, who didn¿t managed to keep very many issues over the years, I am delighted to find a collection such as this. I am not at all disappointed with my purchase, but will have to struggle a bit to limit my reading of this to just a few times so that I can keep it in pristine condition. The art of this collection is exquisitely beautiful, as always with Silver Surfer stories. ¿Masterworks¿ is truly an appropriate title because both the art and storytelling are masterful, treating Stan Lee¿s greatest character creation (in my opinion) with the loving care a masterpiece deserves. The stories in this book very much embody the true essence of Silver Surfer and everything that is wonderful about his saga. Please excuse any gushing in my descriptions, but I am sure that many other female Surfer fans feel the same way I do about this amazing character. Having read the six stories in this book without pausing, I am once again mesmerized and awed by the many exceptional qualities of my favorite superhero: self-sacrifice, insight, humanity despite not being human, kindness, trusting nature, sensitivity, the ever-cool surfing the solar winds skills, quick thinking, ability to look at the big picture, amazing speed, no apparent Achilles heel (other than a trusting and kind nature), purity of motives and spirit, no human flaws such as greed and pride, compassion, tremendous power, etc. Also, his expressions are often incredibly endearing for example, frequent expressions of surprise and delight, which contrast nicely to his normal stoicism. The unique and engaging villains are also an interesting element in these tales. The morals and values present in these stories are highly significant. I believe kids should definitely be encouraged to read them. Parents striving to raise decent human beings, and the heroes of our future, would do well to encourage this pursuit because the lessons in this book are well worth learning. --J.H. Sweet, author of The Fairy Chronicles, and Silver Surfer fan

    Great Silver Surfer Book.

    This is a great graphic novel. It tells the origin of Silver Surfer in great detail. Stan Lee and John Buscema put together a great series with excellent writing from Stan and incredible art from Buscema. Theres never a dull moment in the book which covers the first 6 issues of the Silver Surfer. I definately think any fan of Silver Surfer should pick this book up, you won't be dissapointed at all.

    High Point of the Silver Age in Comics

    This is the art that became the 'Marvel Way' for the following decade. John Buscema's art built upon Jack Kirby's foundations which all artists had tried to immitate and he developed it beyond belief. Every page is epic. No panel is wasted. There is no 'filler'. Buscema literally would go on to write the book on comic illustration. Also, Stan Lee's writing is his finest (devoid of his sometimes cornball style) and deals with stories on what can only be called a 'biblical' scale. 'Masterworks' is a questionable title for this whole series, I have always thought, because although these are the origin books for Marvel that doesn't make them all truly great in themselves. However, Silver Surfer issues 1-18 are indeed MASTERWORKS. Here is a softcover from BN for $12! Not the $40-$50 this series costs in its hardcover version. (On Ebay, the hardcover Surfers go over $100!) This Barnes & Nobel Silver Surfer has issue SIX in it and has been remastered just like its hardcover comic shop version. Let's hope a second volume with issues 7-18 is released by BN as well! An unbelieveble value.
