History Behind Issue: The Heralds Ordeal continues from Silver Surfer #73, as the heralds must find one more ally.

Plot: Silver Surfer, Firelord, Air-Walker, and Nova seek their last needed ally to take down Morg. They arrive on the planet Pluraris VI, where Terrax was imprisoned by the Silver Surfer in New Warriors #17. Now the Silver Surfer offers Terrax a bargain, but Terrax is in no mood to bargain. Thinking that the four former heralds of Galactus came to finish him off, Terrax attacks them. In the course of the battle, Terrax finally realizes he can’t handle all four. He agrees to listen to the Silver Surfer’s offer. Silver Surfer explains that they need Terrax to take out Morg. Terrax agrees, but on his terms. He wants to be freed from imprisonment on Pluraris VI, and he wants his axe back. The five get Terrax’s axe and head for Galactus. Meanwhile, Nebula and Geatar head for Annoval 14, a prison planet, to free Nebula’s crew.

To be concluded in Silver Surfer #75, THE HERALD ORDEAL, CONCLUSION.

Comments: This issue probably has the most action of all the Heralds Ordeal chapters so far (not as much as the next issue though).  It's very entertaining to watch the Silver Surfer and Terrax bargain with eachother.  Over all, good writing, great art, A+ issue.
