Here's a little something I wonder if most people are aware even exists.
Way back when the original Lee / Buscema Silver Surfer run ended with a Kirby issue at no.#18, that was kind of it for Norrin Radd for a good few years, bar the occasional walk-on in The Defenders.
But not over in France. Over there, he'd been appearing in translated reprints in gallic mags Fantask and Strange ( interestingly, in magazines not comics, as the censors over there objected to the Marvel reprints, deeming them unsuitable for children, and only to be made available to adults )
Alongside labelmates Spidey & The FF, The Surfer's translated appearances went down a storm, and both fans and publishers were unhappy when the original material ended.
So writer / editor Marcel Navarro asked Marvel for permission to produce new Surfer stories solely for the French market.
' La Porte Etroite ' was written by Navarro ( under the pseudonym J.K. Melwyn-Nash, and in a heavily Stan Lee pastiche style ) and illustrated by J.Y.Mitton, and appeared in Nova #25 & #26 in February & March of 1980.
Unfortunately, costs were so prohibitive, it was the only strip Navarro was able to produce, but it's a fascinating experiment, at times feeling like watching a dubbed bootleg, with it's pseudo-Lee dialogue and it's numerous Buscema swipes.
It's also even more full of blatant religious allegory than the original series, as The Surfer fights Mephisto for the souls of all mankind, while the world ends around them.
