Silver Surfer: Black #1

The first issue of Silver Surfer: Black catches up with the missing character after his disappearance in Guardians of the Galaxy #1. In the first few pages of the new mini-series, we see the Silver Surfer save other heroes from the black hole in space before falling into the abyss.

Tradd Moore provides some trippy art as the Silver falls into a new reality. While I don't love the heavy-mascara rendering of the Surfer, Moore does provide and interesting backdrop for the story to unfold. Writer Donny Cates hits most of the right notes with the Surfer, including some CliffsNotes for new readers, as our hero attempts to find a peaceful resolution with the antagonistic creatures he finds in this new world.

Silver Surfer: Black #1 doesn't quite sell me on the concept of the mini-series, but it does layout a new challenge for our hero to survive his new reality (which appears to be eating away at him) and return to soar the stars once more. For fans.
