Surfer #49, Vol. 3
Published by Marvel Comics
Writer: Jim Starlin
Original Price: $1.00
History Behind Issue: Continued from issue #48.
Plot: Drax arrives to Titan but can't remember what's he's supposed
to tell Mentor and Eros. Meanwhile the Silver Surfer races to Earth. Thanos observes him
and although determines he really has no chance, decides to play with him by delaying him.
Mephisto meekly obeys Thanos' every command as they transport to the Primeval planet where
a monkey-like creature is transformed into a horrendous monster empowered with a tiny
fraction of Thanos' power . The Surfer is then lured to the planet where the creature and
he fight. The Silver Surfer is unable to affect the monster but suddenly the monster
reverts to its original form and the Surfer realizes this was just a delay tactic. He then
rushes off to Earth. Meanwhile, the eyes of the old statue (of the dead Thanos that
Warlock killed) flash.
Continued in issue #50.
Comments: This is a filler story. Nothing of consequence happens and even having a delay tactic for the Silver Surfer from Thanos seems utterly pointless except that they want to extend this crisis to issue #50 and beyond. Some good art scenes here and there. Nothing that stands out.
