Kind of an odd book for Stan Lee; much more philosophical and rambling than most Silver Age Marvel books. I liked it, but I can see why the series didn't last long:: even for a run that short, it was hard for them to come up with enemies powerful enough to make a halfway decent challenge for the Surfer. Especially since the whole premise is that he's trapped on Earth, and therefore trouble basically has to come to him. After he defeats Satan at the end of #3, it's pretty much all downhill from there. Still, I did enjoy reading it a lot, and John Buscema's artwork was excellent. ( )
