Silver Surfer #6

Silver Surfer is the most fun book Marvel is producing right now. Mind you, that's no small statement; the company has a slew of books running right now that are guaranteed smile-inducers. That said, Dan Slott's take on the former herald of Galactus is easily the cream of the crop. You will not find more natural, enjoyable chemistry between two characters in any other running superhero book than you will with the titular Silver Surfer and his current partner-in-adventure Dawn Greenwood. It doesn't hurt that their adventures together continue to be a delightful mix of awesome and wacky. Issue 6, for instance, pits the Surfer against a planet of perfectionists that the two offend by transforming ice cream into gold. It's absurd beyond belief and it's a simple feat of writing that Slott and company are able to pull it off as enjoyably and believably as they do. Buy Silver Surfer 6 and then go out and buy the five issues preceding. You won't regret it.

Favorite Moment: "Fine! I will use my cosmic senses and find you the greatest ice cream in the galaxy!"
