Official Press Release
There’s one superhero on everyone’s mind and it’s the sentinel of the spaceways himself-the Silver Surfer! Starting this Wednesday, get prepared to experience the past, present and future of the Silver Surfer as Marvel celebrates one of the most unique heroes to ever grace the pages of a comic book.
In Silver Surfer: Requiem #1 (of 4), the titular hero returns to Earth to consult with his old friends-the Fantastic Four-about something that just might mean the end of his life. Journeying the entire galaxy, and the vast depths of his own soul, the Surfer must come to terms with his own life and the choices he’s made, in this poignant Marvel Knights limited series from acclaimed author scribe J. Michael Straczynski (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, Babylon 5), with breathtaking painted art by Esad Ribic (HOUSE OF M, LOKI). For a man who’s seemingly seen it all, how will he react when death stares him in the face?
Meanwhile, over in the Ultimate Universe, the Ultimate Fantastic Four are about to come face to face with Ultimate Silver Surfer…for the first time! Ultimate Fantastic Four #42 begins an all new storyline, a perfect jumping on point for new readers, as Reed Richards tries to solve the mystery of the Cosmic Cube, actions that warrant the attention of a certain surfboard riding superhero! But just who is the Ultimate Silver Surfer and what are his intentions? Surfer fans will thrill to the Ultimate Galactus Trilogy HC, collecting the trilogy that brought us a bold new interpretation of the classic villain and set the stage for Ultimate Silver Surfer’s debut!
Readers new and old won’t want to miss Marvel Spotlight: Fantastic Four And Silver Surfer, going behind the story of these five classic Marvel Characters. From interviews with the multitude of creators who’ve contributed to the development of these characters, to previews of what’s next, there’s something for everyone in this jam packed special look at some of the most enduring superheroes in history!
And if you want to see where it all began, then you have to pick up Silver Surfer Omnibus Vol.1 HC, the oversized hardcover collection collecting the Surfer’s earliest adventures in his own solo series! Don’t forget to check out Essential Silver Surfer Vol.2 TPB, the black & white softcover collection that’s also packed full of early Silver Surfer tales. Then in Silver Surfer: Rebirth Of Thanos TPB, the Surfer and his cosmic allies must team together to stop Thanos in the story that led up to the classic Infinity Gauntlet series!
This summer, the Silver Surfer takes center stage and you won’t want to miss a single thrilling moment of these must-read stories!
