    I would kill right now for a Silver Surfer ongoing. While I did enjoy Black, I have to say that it might have suffered because of the miniseries format.

    When Silver Surfer was trapped on Earth behind the energy barrier, he was powered down. After he escaped Earth and returned to deep space, he gained greater access to the cosmic energies that power him, and became far stronger.

    And it seems like a lot of Silver Surfer's power comes from sheer experience.

    I dont get it, does he need to be polished like normal silver?
    It's funny because when I saw her behind on the glass at the end of the show, I thought, "That's where she needs to be. In captivity. Behind a glass in a lab somewhere that she can be studied like the psychotic specimen she is."

    So is this going to be his new form from now on?

    I really like it, but I'm surprised Marvel would allow him to be changed like this.

    The last issue was very deep, to be sure. It had fantastic action in the middle, but that last third...wow, deep stuff. Reminded me of Buddhist theories where everything is part of everything. Still have to do a read through to understand how Surfer came back to the present day.

    My question is how did the Surfer get this new color? So Knull's darkness consumed him? But the light within him held it off?

    In any case, I really enjoyed this mini. Showed just how powerful Silver Surfer is and how hopeful of a character he can be.

    Really enjoyed this mini as well. The art was superb and the story, while a little light, kept things emotional and interesting. Personally, it felt like the perfect follow-up to Slott and Allred's series: similar in some ways but vastly different in others.

    I had to chuckle though: how many times is the Surfer going to travel back to the beginning of the universe and relive the passage of time?! He's done it at least twice now

    My interpretation for Surfer's coloring is that he's still essentially lost some of his shell.

    So what? he can manipulate matter.

    Silver Surfer Black 5 sold 52,618 copies in October, and outsold such titles as Fantastic Four and Avengers.

    The Silver Surfer's 1997 cartoon can now be viewed on Disney Plus.

    Anyone getting the Silver Surfer Black Treasury Edition?

    I have to say, although the strange art kept me from buy the book right away, I was mistaken and can't wait to get the in the large Treasury format. This mini plus Immortal Hulk are the best things I've read from Marvel in a long time. It's such a shame Surfer doesn't get more love.

    Any word on if we’ll get a follow up to SS:Black?

    How are these Treasury Editions? I never had any but I'll probably buy this and History of the Marvel Universe. I usually have the feeling that short HCs have binding problems, like it happened with the Premiere Editions Marvel was releasing during Marvel Now.
    When you say "large"... How large is it? more than OHC?

    Silver Surfer appeared in the latest Avengers comic, but it's not clear if they will mention anything about Black or just ignore it

    Did he look like his new design at the end of SS Black?
