Plastic Man and The Silver Surfer



I have always enjoyed Mike Allred's take on various characters and his recent work on Silver Surfer is no exception.  The outer space backdrop to the series really plays well with his talent for creative designs and page layouts. His art on the comic is modern yet evocative of Kirby.  I think he would do a great job on a Plastic Man series as well - I hope he gets the chance one of these days.

It was probably swiped by Ruby Ryder on behalf of Dr. Doom.

This is a very interesting pairing, with Silver Surfer and his cosmic adventures, paired with Plastic Man and his more lighthearted "street-level" stories. Even with that combination the story is one that gives the pairing logic: Plas has skills that the Surfer lacks, in terms of finding the jacked board.

As a suggested pairing, I think it'd be fun to see Plas paired with Morph of the Exiles. These are two guys who are constantly shifting into goofy, entertaining shapes, but are able to get down-to-earth when things get serious. And their respective stomping grounds are also greatly contrasted.

^Everything he said. Mike Allred rendering Plas would be true match made in heaven. Maybe Plas would finally get the Surfer to lighten up for a change you know?

Back in the day when I was reading and loving the original The Brave and the Bold, I was especially drawn to the more bizarre team-up. For example, one of my favorites was the first Batman/Kamandi team-up. THIS pairing, in my opinion, is worthy of that classic . . . .

Speaking of which, when are we going to see Rog-2000 versus Magnus Robot Fighter?

@Sonofjack: around the same time Marvel whole-heartedly embraces the Malibu Universe. ;-)
