And I’m done. I’ve become increasingly less interested in writer Dan Slott’s new version of the Silver Surfer as the series has gone on.

I’m not saying I would have plopped down even a fraction of the $150 the custom minifig went for charity, but still.

The second issue of the new series finds the newly gathered team fighting Prestor John and the forces of Avalon who wish to use the rampaging Black Hulk to break through reality so they might finally journey home. Hmm, a comic where a super-powered being punches reality hard enough to make it shatter… where have I heard that before? Oh yeah, here.
