(Yes, this is the Jack Kirby/Joe Sinnott original for the unused cover for the graphic novel.
It served as the basis for Earl Norem's painted version that appeared on both the hardcover and paperback editions from Simon & Schuster.)
While Galactus prepares to devour the Earth, the Silver Surfer attempts to prove to Ardina that the planet and its' people are worth defending from the Devourer of Planets...
Does the Surfer survive?
And what of the ever-hungry Galactus?
