Silver Surfer by Marshall Rogers and Joe Rubinstein

After losing his own regular series in 1970, the Silver Surfer finally returned in 1987 with a series written by Steve Englehart and drawn by one of his best collaborators, Marshall Rogers.

The first issue featured this dynamic double page splash by Rogers and Joe Rubinstein, with the Surfer hurtling through space.  The story would eventually allow Norrin Radd to break through the prison Galactus had placed around the Earth.  I was a big fan of the Englehart/Rogers team and eagerly awaited their first Marvel project.  This image knocked me out when I first saw it.

Here is the original artwork to this splash page, which I discovered a few months back on Tom Breevort's Marvel Age of Comics tumblr page. Interesting how all the creators actually signed the credits page when it was published.   Nuff Said!
