|Who Spans The Spaceways?
First Look At Silver Surfer #1
We've tried the Silver Surfer as a sort of cosmic messiah. We've tried him as a guilt-ridden silver angel. But how often has Norrin Radd been able to be fun?
With Dan Slott and Mike Allred riding the board, this chapter in Marvel NOW! seems likely to have people asking, why has this taken so long?
From the short story in the Marvel NOW! one-shot, this does seem like Marvel is positioning the Silver Surfer as a sort of Doctor Who figure. He has a human companion to whom he's showing the universe. Along the way they will save civilizations, right wrongs, and no doubt, have fun.
Oh, Marvel, why must you make a Silver Surfer book that Fox will only want to make into a movie and ruin?
This March, the sentinel of the skyways blasts off for an all-new adventure in the thrilling SILVER SURFER #1 – from New York Times Bestselling writer Dan Slott and critically acclaimed artist Mike Allred!
Silver Surfer #1 continues the exciting wave of All-New Marvel NOW! launches with a fresh take on Norin Radd and his cosmic quests!
"It's fun, it's full of adventure, and it wears its love of the Marvel Universe on its sleeve," says Slott in an interview with Marvel.com.
The universe is big. Bigger than one could ever imagine, even one such as the Surfer. Propelled by the mighty Power Cosmic, long has he voyaged alone – journeying from star to star. But soon he'll discover that the best way to see it…is with someone else.
Meet the Earth Girl who's challenged the Surfer to go beyond the boundaries of the know Marvel U – and into the strange and unknown!
"One of the limitations of the Surfer character is that, by his nature he's alone most of the time," says Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. "So right off the bat, we're giving him somebody new to bounce off of: the new character Dawn Greenwood. The two of them wind up traveling together, and this gives the Surfer somebody to bond with and relate to along the journey."
Hop on board and hang ten when the most far-out series of All-New Marvel NOW! makes its epic cosmic debut this March! Hang on! This is the all-new SILVER SURFER #1!
