Silver Surfer: Citizen of Earth

Silver Surfer, Vol. 4: Citizen of EarthSilver Surfer, Vol. 4: Citizen of Earth by Dan Slott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Silver Surfer faces an earth threatening menace when Dawn Greenwood meets two of his former girlfriends. Oh, and there's a machine that's threatening to turn earth into a Utopia like Zenn-La, the Surfer's home world.

Dan Slott and Michael Allred's take on the Silver Surfer through a Doctor Who lens continues. The Surfer, Dawn, and Toomie adjust to life in Anchor Bay and save the earth a couple times. The Silver Surfer even becomes a celebrity.

I love the way Allred and Slott make the Silver Surfer feel like a comic from years ago while still having it feel modern and fresh at the same time. The charm of the series is the relationship between Surfer and Dawn and the Surfer's innocence and naivety.

Michael Allred's art is stellar, as always, and Dan Slott manages to make a character that has been pretty inaccessible at times to the Marvel Universe's equivalent to Doctor Who. The only thing I don't like about this run of the Silver Surfer is that it has to end at some point. Four out of five stars.
