Silver Surfer #3

The opening arc of Silver Surfer comes to a close as Dawn Greenwood meets the Silver Surfer and helps the cosmic hero defeat The Impericon and return the heart of Never Queen back where it belongs before the cosmic entity ceases to be. Silver Surfer #3 continues the offbeat humor of the young series (taking it a bit too far in my opinion by making Norrin Radd a Three Stooges fan who even acts out one of the group's trademark moves at one point).

Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk moment aside, Silver Surfer #3 is better at selling the idea of Dawn and the Surfer exploring space together than selling me on the goofy version of the title character. In Rose Tyler fashion, writer Dan Slott continues to tease the importance of Dawn which I'm already tiring of as well.

Hopefully Slott will pull back a bit on the oversell of Dawn and simply allow her to accompany and enjoy the adventures the Surfer can provide while providing a character to explain various parts of the Surfer's existence such as the Power Cosmic. For fans.
