Review: Silver Surfer #2
Silver Surfer has lost his Power Cosmic and must stop High Evolutionary, as Norrin Radd, from essentially becoming the new Galactus.
The GoodI love that Norrin Radd has been Silver Surfer for so long that basic human things like emotions are incredibly confusing to him. We get to see more and more glimpses of Norrin's old life and his transitioning into Silver Surfer through some quick flashback sequences. It really grounds a character who, for years, the readers have considered "godlike." Now that he's "human" again, not only is he trying to stop High Evolutionary, but he is trying to readjust to what being "human" means. It stinks that this is only going to be four issues, but at the same time, it's a very fast paced book, so four issues may be perfect for it.
Greg Pak, the writer of this mini-series, wrote two of my all-time favorite Marvel story-lines: X-Men: Magneto Testament and Planet Hulk. While this story isn't as epic as those two, it has reignited my love for the Silver Surfer, and made me want more.
