A new Silver Surfer series is on the way. As announced by Marvel Comics, the duo of Ron Marz and Ron Lim are set to return for a new round of adventures with the hero next year. Titled Silver Surfer: Rebirth, Marz and Lim are set to tackle a new limited series which is set during their defining run with the character. The first issue is set to arrive in January.
Marz and Lim did a lot of legendary work in the cosmic Marvel space during the 90s. Particularly with Silver Surfer and Thanos. As has been the case with series like X-Men: Legends and Symbiote Spider-Man, the publisher has been bringing back legendary creators to revisit these classic runs with new stories. This is the latest addition to that growing catalog of stories.
Here is the synopsis for Silver Surfer: Rebirth.
Someone has stolen the Reality Gem, an object that allows the user to fulfill any wish no matter the consequences! But whoever has taken it is doing things like bringing back the dead hero Captain Mar-Vell. It’s up to Silver Surfer to team up with the least likely of allies, Thanos, to find the Gem and restore reality to its proper form!
Marvel has also revealed the cover art for the first issue, which we’ve included for you to check out below.
“Turns out you can go home again,” Marz said. “SILVER SURFER with Ron Lim was literally my first job in comics. The first comic page I ever wrote was drawn by Ron when we were both kids. And now three decades later we get to go back there and slip right back into that same groove. It’s so great to be wielding the power cosmic again.”
“I am so thrilled to be penciling SILVER SURFER: REBIRTH,” Lim said. “When Darren Shan, our editor, asked if I’d be interested in working on this with Ron Marz, I jumped at the chance. It is fantastic to be working with Ron again. It has been quite a while since we worked together, but it feels like hardly a day has passed. I’m having a blast getting to draw many of my favorite characters from our run. The story is full of surprises, familiar characters and crazy cosmic action! I can’t wait for the readers to check out the book—hope they enjoy it as much as I enjoy drawing it!”
Silver Surfer: Rebirth #1 hits shelves on January 19.
