Silver Surfer: Black #2

Things get no less weird in the mini-series second issue. Lost in space and time, the Silver Surfer encounters Knull and the planet of the symbiotes. Those unfamiliar with the character may feel a bit lost here, but his motivations are rather straightforward. The ancient god is intent on removing all light from the universe and returning it the full black abyss from which he came.

Knull, the creator of the symbiotes, first attempts to use one to control the Surfer and turn him into a weapon against the universe. Having already been slave to one madman in his lifetime, the Surfer escapes (only to be chased by Knull riding a symbiote dragon - yeah, I told you this gets weird), and encounters a new ally calling to him across space.

As we saw in the first issue, further use of the power cosmic continues to effect our hero. By the end of the second issue, the Sivler Sufer's arm is completely enveloped in the black. How can he defeat Knull, and escape, without succumbing to the darkness slowly enveloping him? For fans.
