MarvelBlog REVIEW: Silver Surfer Black #3
The phenomenal series enters its third installment in an issue that inspires awe in its continued creative understanding of who the Silver Surfer is, and how to depict him and his incredible power in a limitless medium; this is our Silver Surfer Black #3 review.
The battle against Silver Surfer and the symbiotic king Knull continues in this series’ third issue, one that carries the narrative that this is less a battle between the two Marvel characters, and more a battle between the Silver Surfer and his past.
It is impossible to open up the issue without truly being taken back by the utterly jaw-dropping artistry at work in depicting this very unique story of this very unique character.
With every compiling issue in this limited series, it continues to be established that Silver Surfer Black is yet another example of Tradd Moore’s brilliance with a pen in his hand, as his depiction of Silver Surfer is one of the most unique and incredible of his vast history.
There is no misunderstanding, however, that it is also the collaborative effort between Donny Cates and Tradd Moore that adds to just how fantastically this series hits the reader; with this series really tackling a lot of the philosophical issues that have been the foundation of the hero since his debut.
Silver Surfer Black #3 introduces Ego the Living Planet to the series, which is a very interesting addition considering the philosophical dilemma that the Surfer has already found himself, in and with his inner turmoil that has faced him in coming to terms with his role in Galactus’ terrorizing of the galaxy.
The issue ends with a tremendous revelation regarding that newly introduced living planet, and with questions still surrounding the blacking of the Surfer, and the horrid dreams that we’ve seen, we cannot wait to see how Moore and Cates conclude this fantastic series.
