Full of Sound and Fury, But Signifying Little Nov. 18 2013
By Daneel Olivaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Marvel Comics, about a quarter century ago, published a series of 64-page graphic novels as slender books with cardboard covers and printed on glossy paper. This Silver Surfer graphic novel was issued in 1991 and originally sold for $12.95.

Written by Jim Starlin but drawn by Bill Reinhold, it tells a self-contained story where Norrin Radd receives a mental distress call from his beloved Shalla Bal, now empress of Zenn-La, which is abruptly cut off. Racing to his home planet, the Surfer discovers that it has disappeared from space. He is quickly joined by Moondragon, who has sensed this apparent calamity and has a way to track down the missing planet. She helps the Surfer locate Zenn-La and Shalla Bal and our hero learns that not everything is what it may seem. I won't spoil the story with any more details, but suffice it to say that the survival of the Surfer and Zenn-La are ultimately at stake and that our hero's situation vis a vis his unrequited love will not get any better by the end of this adventure.

It is a diverting story, though very plot driven and lacking any new or revealing characterizations of this cast of characters. Everyone acts the way you would expect and no one is really changed by the incredible events behind Zenn-La's disappearance and recovery. The artwork is very good, though it is not at the level that Starlin himself achieved at his best (and with a great inker) when he wrote AND pencilled his greatest epics. Still, if you enjoy the Silver Surfer as a character and haven't read this story, you likely will enjoy it.

Good Silver Surfer Story Feb. 6 2014
By greystreet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a self contained Silver Surfer story as part of the Marvel Graphic novels that were released in the 80's and early 90's. Jim Starlin writes a good cosmic tale that is a solid characterization of Silver Surfer. Surfer is a character that faces a great deal of tragedy and this story is no different. Art in this book is enjoyable but is not as good as Starlin's own penciled cosmic work. This graphic is worth reading if you are a Silver Surfer fan or looking to read an enjoyable Marvel cosmic tale.
