Nio vs anything?
You want a review of this?
The review is go and read any other comic in the history of ever. For crying out loud - read a Popples comic. Or Visionaries comic. Or any other junk. This is bad.
Every time Silver Surfer whines
Every time. About love or why do people fight? I want to just throw all of this effort into the garbage. So freaky boring. Get rid of him. Stop writing this. It is the antithesis of every part of comics that is fun and interesting - and why this type of storytelling ends quickly. Not that he isn't a cool character - he is. It's just that he's so sorely mis-handled within what he does.
Take a look back at the earliest Solar. That is where someone would be so out of the continuity. He - and Watcher - are big hypocrites.
So - let's have Mephisto don a cape and a big hat. That guy is either Ben Grimm or master of the underworld. One of the two. If he has such powers...
But then, the comic turns. Remember - I HATE the Surfer. Well - the writing. This one has something pretty awesome in its pages. A compelling story. And an interest to continue into the next issue. I was actually dreading the issue coming to such a harsh closure right at the end - that it would force itself to an awkward finish - and it DID NOT. Now - it wasn't perfect. I didn't see it necessary to flip over to homeworld and back again - but holding against her will - and then tempting with her location. Pretty good.
