Jack Kirby brought the Silver Surfer into the Marvel Universe by sneaking him into the classic "Galactus Trilogy" covering 1966's Fantastic Four #48-50. Stan Lee loved the idea of the planet-devouring Galactus having an acolyte, and the Silver Surfer was soon a favorite of Marvel's mostly high-school to college-age readership in the heady late '60s.

The character's cosmic look, tortured back-story, and cool surfboard made him an instant favorite with the black-light poster crowd. Never one to shy away from a hit, Lee soon moved the former Norrin Radd into his own supersized title, with art from the frighteningly talented John Buscema. Hugely popular to this day (and likely to factor in Marvel Studios' upcoming Fantastic Four movie reboots), the Surfer continues to fascinate comic collectors while commanding high prices in high grades.



Artists Information

'The Michelangelo of comics.' Buscema was one of the mainstays of Marvel Comics during its 1960s and 1970s heyday, best known for his run on the The Avengers and The Silver Surfer, and for over 200 stories featuring the sword-and-sorcery hero Conan the Barbarian. In addition, he penciled at least one issue of nearly every major Marvel title, including long runs on two of the company's top books, Fantastic Four and Thor.

Eugene Jules Colan was an American comic book artist best known for his work for Marvel Comics, where his signature titles include the superhero series Daredevil, the cult-hit satiric series Howard the Duck, and The Tomb of Dracula, considered one of comics' classic horror series. He co-created the Falcon, the first African-American superhero in mainstream comics, Carol Danvers, who would become Ms. Marvel and Captain Marvel, and the supernatural vampire hunter Blade.

Joe Sinnott is an American comic book artist. Working primarily as an inker, Sinnott is best known for his long stint on Marvel Comics' Fantastic Four, from 1965 to 1981, initially over the pencils of Jack Kirby. During his 60 years as a Marvel freelancer and then salaried artist working from home, Sinnott inked virtually every major title, with notable runs on The Avengers, The Defenders and Thor.
