J. Michael Straczynski and Esad Ribic’s stunning first issue of Silver Surfer: Requiem has sold-out at Diamond. This astonishing issue retells the origin of Marvel’s premiere cosmic nomad, and puts him face-to-face with his own mortality.
“Requiem is just really well written, from beginning to end everything is put together great,” says CraveOnline.com. “The story is very compelling as the reader get’s to see Norrin Radd come to terms with his fate.”
SilverBulletComics.com calls Staczynski “fantastic” and “on his game.” Silver Bullet goes on to say Ribic’s art “truly captures the fantastic nature of these characters” and that it is “reminiscent of Alex Ross’ work on Marvels.”
BronkenFrontier.com’s David Baxter raves about Esad Ribic’s art saying, “His fully painted pages are magisterial to the extreme, presenting the title character with all the glory and grandeur that such a figure so richly deserves. It’s an ingenious, skillful blend of the mundane and the majestic and it just plain works wonders for the Surfer, both for the character and the unique world of big-and-small he inhabits.”
Silver Surfer: Requiem #1 is the first of a four part tale that will test Norrin Radd with an enemy that he has no way to defeat. So be sure to pick up the next 3 issues of J. Michael Straczynski and Esad Ribic’s break-out hit.
Readers are advised that there may still be copies of Silver Surfer: Requiem #1 at the retailer level. Marvel has no plans at this time to go back to press on the first issue and advises retailers to adjust their orders appropriately on Silver Surfer: Requiem #2.
