Silver Surfer vs. The Flying Dutchman. Seriously. And yet, it isn’t terrible. It’s just average. I do find it very odd that it takes Silver Surfer two issues to defeat this guy, but he’s gone up against all kinds of much bigger threats like Mephisto and The Stranger, and he can take them down in just under 30 pages.
Stan explains why in a note at the end of issue #8: They were running behind on their publishing schedule.
So, despite his own recent edict against “to be continued” tales, this one goes on for two issue.
Creators: Stan Lee, John Buscema
