Long-time Silver Surfer team of Ron Marz and Ron Lim will return to the spaceways for an in-continuity tale set during their classic run in January’s five issue limited series, Silver Surfer: Rebirth.
Marz is excited to be headed back into space, as it “Turns out you can go home again. 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.”
Lim is also “…thrilled to be penciling Silver Surfer: Rebirth. 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!”
The new story involves the theft of the Reality Gem, the mysterious resurrection of Captain Mar-Vell, and an unlikely team-up between the Surfer and his greatest nemesis from the era, The Mad Titan, Thanos.
