The Sentinel of the Skyways hits theatres June 15th in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, so what better time to bring Norrin Radd's adventures back into the pages of Marvel Comics? J. Michael Straczynski and Esad Ribic bring the MU Silver Surfer to life in Silver Surfer: Requiem #1, while Mike Carey and Pasqual Ferry introduce the Ultimate Silver Surfer in the pages of Ultimate Fantastic Four #42.
Silver Surfer: Requiem #1: The End Isn't Near, It's Here
Since his debut in the pages of Fantastic Four, the Silver Surfer has been one of the most enigmatic and fascinating characters in Marvel Comics lore, but is this the end of the road for the former herald of Galactus? In Silver Surfer: Requiem #1 (of 4), the sentinel of the spaceways journeys to Earth to consult some old friends-the Fantastic Four-about something that just may mean the end of his galaxy spanning journey. This heartfelt tale of a lone man's quest to complete his final voyage is written by the celebrated sci-fi and superhero scribe J. Michael Straczynski (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, Babylon 5), featuring gorgeous painted art by Esad Ribic (LOKI).
These two creators will take you on a journey throughout the stars and within one man's soul, as the Silver Surfer must come to term with the idea that he may soon be no more. Others come and go, but the Silver Surfer is eternal...or is he?
Don't miss out on the Surfer's earliest solo adventures in the upcoming Silver Surfer Omnibus Vol.1 HC and Essential Silver Surfer Vol.2 TPB-with creators like Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, how can you go wrong?

The Surfer Cometh In Ultimate Fantastic Four #42
It's the moment you've all been waiting for since Warren Ellis' now classic Ultimate Gah-Lak-Tus trilogy and since you noticed the seeds planted in Mike Carey's acclaimed run on Ultimate Fantastic Four-the debut of Ultimate Silver Surfer! Comic book fans know that the Surfer only arrives in times of great danger and, well, hasn't Reed Richards-AKA Mr. Fantastic-been trying to build the Cosmic Cube? All he's done is pierce the barriers of one hundred universes...oh yeah, that whole "great danger" thing!
With the debut of another classic FF character re-imagined as only the Ultimate universe can, fans cannot afford to miss the "Silver Surfer" storyline in the pages of Ultimate Fantastic Four #42, written by the critically acclaimed Mike Carey and with pencils by Young Gun Pasqual Ferry. You've seen what happened the first time the Surfer met the Four over 40 years ago-but you've never seen what happens when the two forces collide in the Ultimate Universe!
