"I consider [Thanos] to be an anti-hero…because he’s been the good guy as often as he’s been the bad guy in the stories. So I don’t consider him a villain. But because he’s not in that hero category I always found him more fascinating to write. I didn’t have to get restricted on where he would go and how he would react to things. I could make him not as appealing as I would have to make him if he were a hero. He could go off on his own little dark ways and it would still make perfect sense." -- Jim Starlin

"Tonally, I keep joking that this is a Cormac McCarthy story adapted by Jack Kirby. 'Cormac McKirby' if you will." - Jason Latour

Kind of want one of those "[character] [verb]s the marvel universe" books under my belt before I die. "Silver Surfer dolefully ponders" FTW. -- Si Spurrier

My contention is that humans are living increasingly disenchanted lives. We’re forgetting the wonders of fiction. People are lurching towards psychic extremes: some veering towards an anodyne sort of rationalism – let’s call it an acceptance of Realpolitik – which essentially amounts to losing the ability to be moved by the unreal. Others are veering towards radicalised religion, which I’d describe as an orthodoxy based on mistreating stories as fact. Both are extremes defined by taking things too fucking literally. -- Si Spurrier

When I was first thinking about the character I noticed how many people had implied the Surfer was some sort of Cosmic Messiah. Obviously he’d be the first to deny that – he’s just the product of some fucking impressive science – but I got to wondering what would happen if someone really did believe it, and started basing their decisions upon his supposed divinity. That would make him – in a perverse sort of way – responsible for the actions of his ‘followers.’ -- Si Spurrier

I sometimes have a hard time empathizing with the motives of superheroes, but show me a cosmic guru-philosopher who’s just plain decent – despite being frustrated by the idiocy he sees wherever he goes – and that’s a headspace I’m happy to occupy. The Surfer is a perpetual idealist: he can spot the potential for great things in the people around him, but can’t understand why, in spite of it all, they’re so petty, small-minded and intent on self-destruction. He lacks the ability to just shrug and say ‘that’s life’, so he wanders about trying to make things better whilst constantly being reminded of how little success he’s having. It’s a really weird combination of depression and optimism that I love. -- Si Spurrier

If I don't type "The End" on the last page of this Silver Surfer #14 plot, maybe we could just keep surfing through space? -- Dan Slott

"When we first conceived the current Silver Surfer series, there were three big stories we wanted to do. Galactus (#8-10) was the first. Shalla Bal (v2 #1-4) was the second. The third starts in Silver Surfer #11..." - Tom Brevoort

'I was sitting with David Tennant and Billy Piper when I gave her a trade, and David Tennant (who'd already read it) said, "Oh, you'll love this! There's a lot of Rose in this character, Dawn." (And yes, in that moment I did everything in my power to NOT go "squee!")' -- Dan Slott
