Storyline

When the planet Zenn-La is threatened by the cosmic giant Galactus, a being that must drain whole planets of their lifeforce for sustenance, Norrin Radd must act. He makes a bargain to be the scout for the being, to search for uninhabited planets, in return for for Zenn-La's survival. Galactus agrees to this and changes the man into the powerful Silver Surfer, but he also submerges his humanity to remove his qualms about selecting populated planets for consumption. That suppression is only broken by an attack by the insane space villain, Thanos. With the knowledge of Galactus' treachery, he moves to stop the being just as he was going to consume Earth.

Excellent Comic Book-Adapted Animation Series
8 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Excellent adaptation of the Silver Surfer comic book, true to the spirit of the original. Thoughtful and entertaining. It's a shame that arguments prevented the story arc from being completed.

The Silver Surfer has always been a serious and thoughtful character, especially in the 60s incarnation, and that is true in this adaptation. This version surely demanded a completed finale and at least one follow-up series.

The background artwork seems true to the style of Jack Kirby, while the characters owe more to the John Buscema versions. Jack Kirby was always best at drawing outlandish technology and architecture, and his work on the 60s Silver Surfer comic book took great advantage of this with stunning alien technology and lifeforms. John Buscema produced great character drawings, and with the Silver Surfer, ones depicting emotions that leaped off the page. The writing of Stan Lee, with all his humanist tendencies (no pun intended), also gave this character great drama - almost Shakespearian at times!

What a great combination!
