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...

"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
