"Free!" Guest-starring the Fantastic Four and Galactus. Story by Steve Englehart. Art by Marshall Rogers and Joe Rubinstein. Many years ago, in order to prevent the total annihilation of his civilization and homeworld, Norrin Radd bargained with the Devourer of Worlds. Imbued with the Power Cosmic, he became the Silver Surfer and Herald of Galactus. However, on the fateful day he arrived on Earth, for love of humanity, he betrayed his master, and thus was cursed to never traverse the spaceways again. Now, after many years of exile, will the Silver Surfer finally be free to soar the heavens again? Plus, witness the savage attack of Champion, an Elder of the Universe (last seen in Marvel Two in One (1974) Annual #7), as events are set in motion for the next 10 issues.
