Official Press Release
He has the appearance of the alien and the power of a god, and beginning
later this month the writing team of Stacy Weiss & Dan Chariton and
soon-to-be superstar artist MILX will explore all the strangeness and
mystery that entails with the debut of SILVER SURFER #1, a new ongoing
series premiering July 30th.
“In ancient times, the appearance of a shining silver humanoid in the skies
would have precipitated the founding of a new religion,” says series
co-writer Stacy Weiss. “And in a way that’s the key to our conception of the
Silver Surfer. He’s unlike other superheroes … he’s not of this Earth, and
wasn’t raised here. He’s an alien – and, to Dan and I, he’s a god.
“And like any god worth his salt, the Silver Surfer’s actions defy human
understanding. His manifestation in the real world inspires awe, which can
be awful or awesome, depending on your point of view. Most of our characters
are terrified. Our first arc is largely told from the perspective of a
mother whose daughter is kidnapped by the Silver Surfer in what may at first
appear to be a classic alien abduction scenario, but will unfold into
something far more complex and intriguing as the story progresses.”
SILVER SURFER #1, featuring a cover by Joe Jusko, goes on-sale 7/30 with a
cover price of $2.25, and retailers are reminded its Final Order Cut-off
(FOC) is 7/10. Readers, ask your retailer to reserve you a copy!
