Reading Room SILVER SURFER: THE ULTIMATE COSMIC EXPERIENCE Conclusion

Original, unused cover by Jack Kirby & Joe Sinnott and published cover by Earl Norem

"Tamam Shud" means "ended" or "finished" in ancient Persian.

The actual quote is from Edward FitzGerald's famous translation of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam.
