NYCC: Slott and Allred on New Silver Surfer Ongoing

Slott will somehow find time in his busy schedule of political tweeting to write a Silver Surfer series.

Marvel announce a new ongoing Silver Surfer series at New York Comic Con today with the creative team of Dan Slott and Mike Allred. Most people know Slott from his career as a tweeter of liberal talking points, but you may be shocked to learn that Slott has also been writing comic books for a long time, including his current run on Superior Spider-Man. Slott told congoers at the Marvel "Events, Events, and More Events!" panel that he would regrettably need to take a step back from posting deep thoughts about political issues in 140 characters or less in order to incorporate writing a Silver Surfer book into his schedule.

"I'm really looking forward to exploring the Surfer's thoughts on issues like gun control and affordable healthcare," said Slott, adding, " hashtag #Obamacare #SuckItNRA." In addition to the government shutdown, the new series will see the Surfer find a new love interest on Earth.

Slott went on to say that he wrote the book specifically for Allred, even before he knew Allred would be able to join the team, which is a bit presumptuous, isn't it? Mike Allred is famous for his iconic pop art style, visible on such books as X-Statix, I, Zombie, Madman, and, most recently, Marvel's FF. Allred said that he was looking forward to working with Slott, and hoped that their new relationship would cause Slott to unblock him on Twitter, as the artist has been unable to view the writer's posts since he disagreed with him on a minor point during the 2012 election cycle.

Silver Surfer #1 will be in stores in March.
