Silver Surfer (1987-1998) 72 1 0 For those that have read this, the cover is a bit misleading, isn't it? (I guess they couldn't show a strip club!)

Venom: The Enemy Within (1994) 1 1 0 I love Venom, but this is nothing really special. It's a 3 issue mini, so let's see if the next 2 issues can be a bit better.

Detective Comics (1937-2011, 2016-Present) 439 1 0 One of my most favorite stand alone Batman tales. Shows just how unstoppable he can be.
by onedmitri on 7/29/2017 10:13:00 PM
Silver Surfer (1987-1998) 31 1 0 The story was a little weak. This is the end of the Kree / Skrull War, basically. The artwork was stellar.

Silver Surfer (1987-1998) 26 1 0 This is (yet) another of the Kree/Skrull War story. It's a good issue, pretty much a continuation from issue #25, so read that one first.
