The Silver Surfer has returned in time to bear witness to the Scourge’s atrocities - but his new status quo leaves him helpless to intervene! Will the Surfer be able to find a way to save the fleeing innocents around him - or will he be forced to stand by and herald in a new age of death?

Abnett previously co-wrote the original 2006 comic event Annihilation with Andy Lanning. Its 2007 sequel Annihilation: Conquest introduced the modern incarnation of the Guardians of the Galaxy, inspiring the team's subsequent portrayal in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Abnett and Lanning later co-wrote other classic cosmic Marvel comic stories, including 2009's War of Kings and 2010's The Thanos Imperative, before the writing duo split and Abnett began writing for DC in 2011.

Dan Abnett and Paul Davidson's Annihilation: Scourge - Silver Surfer #1 is scheduled to go on sale this December from Marvel Comics.
