As I mentioned earlier in the day, it's 50 years to the day since Adam West and Burt Ward burst on to our screen as the defintive, if somewhat campy, Dynamic Duo.

And appropriately enough, the final issue of the Batman '66 comic is a tribute to the show which made

'Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na BATMAN!' a worldwide phenomenon )

"Tom [Brevoort] had suggested to me as the artist to Dan [Slott], and Dan said -- well, it'll sound self-serving if I say the kind words that he said, but I'd like to say that Dan was excited by the idea of me doing it and told me that it ruined the idea of anybody else taking it on. So of course I found that extremely flattering. I love Dan. I love him as a person -- his life force, his joyfulness, his talent." -- Mike Allred

In the wake of the Beyonders' destruction of all reality in Secret Wars, the Silver Surfer and Dawn are tasked with creating a new universe to replace it...

"Battleworld and Warzones! feature stories that take place on Battleworld. And Last Days features stories about Marvel characters dealing with the end of the world. NONE of those apply to what we’re doing in SILVER SURFER. To play nice, we’re calling it Last Days...but it’s not. It’s really like an all-new fourth category...one that's almost indescribable and a little insane." -- Dan Slott

Vertigo is to me what Image Comic seems to be others. While everyone gets excited over whatever Image puts out, Vertigo does that for me. It's produced some my favorite comics of all time (Fables, iZombie, Scalped, Saucer Country, and The Unwritten), but it has been falling on hard times recently. This imprint barely had any new titles at all!

...that is, until just recently...

"He's a character that represents freedom. He's the guy that was the slave. He was chained and now he's free to do whatever he wants. Initially with Silver Surfer stories there was that limitation that he couldn't leave Earth because Galactus had trapped him there. So here he was a former slave, but he was now imprisoned, and the second you break through that barrier you've got the most cosmic hero of all. He's the guy who can go anywhere and everywhere. The whole universe is open to him and there's something very liberating about that. We've all had that feeling in our lives. It's like when you first get the car or when you leave home and now you're your own person and you can do your own thing." - Dan Slott

"Silver Surfer #11 is the best bit of formal experimentation in a supercomic I've seen lately. Genius." -- Al Ewing

'Some times comics are like that where you end on a comic and you're like, "Oh my God - he just had his throat slit! No! 'Men of Wrath?' You just scared the crap out of me! I feel uneasy and weird!" With this it's like, "Yay! I feel good now. I had a rollicking adventure! I had a yarn!" That's part of the fun of "Surfer." We're unabashedly joyous.' -- Dan Slott

'We're also hearing from a lot of parents that this is a book they can read with their kids. It's very much a romp. It's a book that takes you by the hand and says, "Let's go on an adventure!" There's no cynicism, teeth gnashing or gritty darkness in Surfer. This is an unapologetically joyous, fun, adventuresome comic.' -- Dan Slott

'The great thing about the Marvel cosmos is that it's really, really big and there's a lot of room for everybody to go in there and have their take. One guy can be writing a "Star Wars" like book, another guy can be writing a very "Star Trek" like book or a new-style "Battlestar Galactica" like book. And there's plenty of space over here for me and Mike Allred to do this pop art/Brit sci-fi weirdness.' -- Dan Slott

'The basic element we wanted to "borrow" -- STEAL! -- was giving the Surfer a human companion; someone that grounded him, because for the most part. you look at Surfer and he's this Shakespearean-spouting guy from the top of a bowling trophy.' -- Dan Slott

'One of the things we did when we were working on the first issue was we send a copy to Russell T. Davies to ask him what he thought and if he was cool with it. He wrote this lovely note back. He was very supportive, said that Dawn was "glorious," and he gave us his blessing and tons of encouragement. That was great!' -- Dan Slott

Professor X often has a bit of a patriarchal creep-factor about him, but Mike Allred and Peter Milligan take it to new levels in these 2 pages from X-Statix #6...
