Silver Surfer: Black
2019. Donny Cates, Tradd Moore, Dave Stewart
The Silver Surfer, thrown back to the dawn of the universe and mortally wounded, contemplates the terrible things he has done in life. Comics are a natural fit for the psychedelic. To read a comic is to project static images into a space and time more concrete than pure writing and more plastic than music or video. The best comics tangle story and image together into a sort of synesthetic whole. In Silver Surfer: Black the substance of the story is images and those images are in constant motion and play with their own borders, interiors, shapes, and meaning.
