What is Giant-Size Silver Surfer #1 about?

“The Silver Surfer and Terrax share so much– from their connection to a profound cosmic force, to their oversized ex-employer– yet their goals and their temperaments could not be more different. I had a blast digging into this divide with Tommaso… by smashing these wayward “brothers” together, with bombastic results!” said Mat Groom.

The description of Giant-Size Silver Surfer #1 reads, “Terrax the Tamer is determined to escape the Silver Surfer’s shadow for once and for all – and to do so, he has created a deadly trap that the Surfer cannot escape! But in the midst of Terrax’s brutal campaign to destroy the Surfer’s reputation, can the Surfer maybe find a way to save Terrax himself? PLUS: A reprint of SILVER SURFER #80, in which the Surfer is caught in the crossfire of an epic throwdown between Terrax and Morg the Executioner!”
