Surfer # 18

The last three pages of Silver Surfer # 18 (Sep 1970). It’s a shame Herb Trimpe didn’t do more inking jobs on Kirby’s work, I thought Herb did a really great job on this book. It’s been suggested by some comics experts that the screaming face of the Surfer in the final page may have been a reflection of Jack’s own rage at the fact that Martin Goodman and Stan Lee would not make an effort to give him a fair share of the royalties and credit for his 1960s Marvel creations. Soon after this story, Jack would move onto DC and create the Fourth World series.
