'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...

I've been working on your other suit... your *special* suit. )

"I know this sounds like a weird change from something like Superior Spider-Man to a book like Silver Surfer. But… Spider-Man was a weird change from Avengers Initiative. And Avengers Initiative was a weird change from Great Lake Avengers. Great Lake Avengers was a weird change from She-Hulk. She-Hulk was a weird change from Arkham Asylum: Living Hell. So I like to change gears." -- Dan Slott

The rum manufacturer Bacardí has hired Warren Ellis and Mike Allred to make a comic about the life of Emilio Bacardí, the former head of the company.

“Storytelling requires great characters, and in Emilio Bacardí we have exactly that. Emilio was a patriot, passionate about his homeland of Cuba. My focus was to bring his drive and determination to life.” - Warren Ellis

'What Mike [Allred] and I are doing over in "Silver Surfer" is we're looking at a whole different corner of the Marvel Universe. Our Marvel Universe is more like "Hitchhiker's Guide," "Doctor Who" and "Red Dwarf."' -- Dan Slott

"Since childhood, there is a dignity in the Surfer that I've always admired, but I want to tap into the euphoric fun side of Norrin Radd that I've always wanted to see more of." -- Mike Allred

I still hold the Ed Brubaker/Cameron Stewart/Darwyn Cooke Catwoman run as possibly one of the greatest comicbook series DC have ever put out. And since I've not posted anything from their run in a while, I thought that I'd put a bit from the first storyarc.

Enjoy!
