Ron Marz and Ron Lim launching ‘Silver Surfer: Rebirth’ January 2022

‘Silver Surfer: Rebirth’ set to release January 19, 2022.

Press Release

Marvel Comics has revealed a new five-issue series that kicks off this January from Ron Marz and Ron Lim called Silver Surfer: Rebirth. Similar to titles like X-Men: Legends and Symbiote Spider-Man, the series will be set during historic runs in Marvel Comics history.

Throughout the 90s, Marz and Lim shaped Marvel’s cosmic landscape with epic tales involving Silver Surfer, Thanos, and the Infinity Gems. Now, the writer/artist duo is back to deliver a new story within that story which can be found in comic book shops on January 19, 2022.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

“Turns out you can go home again,” Marz said. “Silver Surfer with Ron Lim was literally my first job in comics. The first comic page I ever wrote was drawn by Ron when we were both kids. And now three decades later we get to go back there and slip right back into that same groove. It’s so great to be wielding the power cosmic again.”

So what’s Silver Surfer: Rebirth about?

Someone has stolen the Reality Gem, an object that allows the user to fulfill any wish no matter the consequences! But whoever has taken it is doing things like bringing back the dead hero Captain Mar-Vell. It’s up to Silver Surfer to team up with the least likely of allies, Thanos, to find the Gem and restore reality to its proper form!

Lim added, “When Darren Shan, our editor, asked if I’d be interested in working on this with Ron Marz, I jumped at the chance. It is fantastic to be working with Ron again. It has been quite a while since we worked together, but it feels like hardly a day has passed. I’m having a blast getting to draw many of my favorite characters from our run. The story is full of surprises, familiar characters and crazy cosmic action! I can’t wait for the readers to  check out the book – hope they enjoy it as much as I enjoy drawing it!’
