Silver Surfer returns in 2022 for a new limited series that will ‘rebirth’ the Marvel cosmic character. It’s a loaded word in superhero comics lore, and the publisher has recruited arguably the character’s most memorable creative team to create it: writer Ron Marz and artist Ron Lim.
That’s right, the well-remembered early ’90s creative team of Silver Surfer’s ongoing title is returning for the five-issue Silver Surfer: Rebirth.
“Turns out you can go home again,” Marz said in the announcement. “Silver Surfer with Ron Lim was really my first job in comics. The first comic page I wrote was drawn by Ron when we were both kids. And now three decades later we have to go back there and in the same groove. Have to go back.. It’s great to have the cosmic power running again.”
That’s right—Silver Surfer was Marge’s comic book debut, transitioning from a career as a journalist to co-writing comic books with Jim Starlin (yes, He Jim Starlin), then took on Silver Surfer on his own.
In Silver Surfer: Rebirth, Marz and Lim will jump back into the ’90s of their original run, to tell a continuation story about a mysterious man who steals the Reality Gem and, among other things, brings up the dead hero. is using it for. Captain Marvel back to life.
(The resurrection of Captain Marvel is something that Marvel is currently teasing in the ongoing Captain Marvel title.)
To avert the havoc wrought by the Reality Gem’s mysterious new wielder, the one-time Galactus Herald recruits none other than Thanos to find the Gem and unravel the mess created by its new bearer.
Marvel has turned to this formula – with classic creators reuniting with Marvel characters – whom they have known about on several occasions recently, such as X-Men Legends, Symbiote Spider-Man and Ben Reilly: Spider-Man. . Silver Surfer: Rebirth is doubly important to the trend, as Marz and Lim took the title of Silver Surfer in 1990 during another rebirth – the ‘Rebirth of Thanos’, as the story goes.
“I’m so thrilled to pencil Silver Surfer: Rebirth,” says Lim. “When our editor Darren Shan asked if I’d be interested in working with Ron Marz on this, I jumped at the chance. It’s great to be working with Ron again. It’s been a long time since we worked together.” , but it seems like hardly a day has passed. I’m having a blast attracting so many of my favorite characters from my race. The story is full of surprises, familiar characters, and crazy cosmic action! I can’t wait for it Can get readers to see the book – hope they enjoy it as much as I enjoy illustrating it!”
