Is anyone reading Slott and Allreds Surfer? It's been a fantastic comic! This series, so different in tone from any preceding take on the character, is so rich & satisfying, staying true to the Surfer's philosophic & noble nature & exploring worlds within worlds of emotion & humanity, often underneath a veneer of deceptively light banter, cutting to the very core of existence itself. Just the idea of the story! The Surfer being able to explore a new universe! And his relationship with Dawn! How can the Surfer ever have a relationship after this one? How can he go, "Back to Shalla-Bal"? after this one (A Joe Satriani song)? I love their creation of The Never Queen and of course good friend Galen of Taa! It was a beautiful story! A love story! And a cosmic story! And that incredible art, and that double page spread! It's too bad that it's ending, but it's been a long, great run by these two!

I think that it would be good to see a cosmic character every now and then, or some of Surfer's friends (Like, say, Firelord.). The art looked FANTASTIC, and the story offbeat. I read that this was mostly a take on Doctor Who, though (I never saw the show.).

I am not a fan of the art on the title and never was. The stories were entertaining though.

I have mixed feelings on Dawn. I like having a character something like that around but I was never totally sold on her. I do not hate her, but nor do I love her.




Look Raist bunnies...
