I decided to thumb through Silver Surfer Vol. 1 today to take a look at how many times we see him in the following pose (or similar):
Can you take a guess at the frequency?
Well in 18 comics of the first volume, I was able to capture him in this state more than 20 times (not counting pain/recovery from battle).
Believe me, I am not complaining. As you will read (if you are interested) in my next blog post, I am a huge Silver Surfer fan and believe this "emotion" makes him a better character. I just worry that some folks, wanting to "get to know" Silver Surfer's character, might start with Volume 1 and feel that his is too much of a "whiner".
Anyway, here are some more examples:
Now, with this tortured emotion of sadness, also comes rage and power, we see quite a bit of that as well :)
