"Worldship."


The last panel is of course from Silver Surfer #1, from Stan Lee and Big John Buscema, a veritable classic. I'm not sure I read it until I coughed up for the Marvel Masterworks edition, which is way more high-end than I usually spring for, but I think it was the only way to get a reprint of it at the time.

As occasionally happens, we're referencing actual continuity today! Kurt saw Galactus at the original Secret Wars, but I'm not sure either of them--or anyone else--believe Deadpool was there. Galactus tried to eat Rachel Summers, the Phoenix, in Excalibur #25; an issue we took a quick look at years ago. Chronologically earlier, in 1983's Fantastic Four #257 Galactus devours the Skrull throneworld, but the X-Men went back in time and saw the whole thing up close in 1999's X-Men #90. But our plotline today ties into two other comics, where Galactus picked new heralds that we might know. Which we'll see some later date! Especially since I have one of those issues in trade, and don't have the other one but an issue of What If? referencing it...and no idea where either is, come to think of it...

Cool use of that comic background to turn Kurt into one of Galactus' new heralds. Nicely done man.

Wow, Kurt as a herald. Now this should be fun to watch unfold...

This... this is AMAZING! How did you even DO that last panel?

Plus, Kurt as a Herald of Galactus? Heck if Aunt May can do it, why not?
