Silver Surfers Soars Once More In Thy Name

Here we go with another mini-series.  So soon after Requiem.  That was a good story even if it was a tiny bit confusing.  We have to assume it happened out of continuity with the way it ended.  I also thought the whole Spider-Man/Silver Surfer interraction was a little weird.  They have been around each other before but it didn't feel like it.  I'm not sure what to think about this series.  It's not screaming out to me.  Guess we'll see how I'm feeling the day it comes out.

The Sentinel of the Spaceways soars once more in the all new Silver Surfer: In Thy Name #1 (of 4), as the Surfer finds himself embroiled in a conflict he may not be able to win! Written by acclaimed author Simon Spurrier (Gutsville, 2000AD), with gorgeous art by the Eisner-winning Tan Eng Huat (making his Marvel debut) and a stunning cover by superstar Michael Turner, In Thy Name takes Surfer into the farthest depths of space where he discovers a threat he can’t ignore! In this timely and relevant tale of a utopia taken over by an enlightened group who subjugate the masses in the name of the greater good, the Silver Surfer is drawn into their conflict and must choose a side. But can he possibly take action when he may be dealing with powers far greater—and deadlier—than his own? With the combination of dirty politics, organ stealing pirates, demonic beasts and more enemies waiting in the shadows, the former herald of Galactus is about to find out that heaven can indeed be hell!

Combining the lush pencils of Huat with the inventive and nuanced storytelling of Spurrier, Silver Surfer: In Thy Name #1 is a must-read for fans of Marvel’s most iconic space faring hero!
