Characters Appearing: Silver Surfer
Silver Surfer #39
Issue(s): Silver Surfer #39
The book has a goofy/funny tone to it, which i guess is broadly in line with the injection of humor that Jim Starlin announced would be a part of his run (with the inclusion of the Impossible Man in Silver Surfer #36). But this is more goofy than funny.
James T. Sherman's art is certainly different. This panel (featuring an arena fighter posing as Shalla Bal) has a pulpy Romance comic feel to it.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: Takes place after Silver Surfer annual #3.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
Did Alan Grant ever write anything else for Marvel? He did a lot of DC work, mostly at Batman and Lobo, but this is the only Marvel comic I've ever seen from him.

He wrote Nick Fury Agent of Shield 11, which had Scottish dialogue fnord could not understand. :)

I'd swear he wrote at least a few things for Marvel, but obviously he found DC a much more comfortable place.

Oh, I forgot, he also wrote the second Batman and Daredevil crossover. His Daredevil was rather bad, including a scene where he reacts and comments to an image in the Batcomputer (????), but I found his Kingpin to be decent enough.

Oh come on, all he needed to include was a panel of Daredevil "feeling" the Batcomputer screen and he would have been on par with at least half of DD's pre-Miller writers.
