Dear Dan Slott: Do Silver Surfer Justice; Sincerely, Nova & GoTG Fans



Oh, boy.

Coming out of the WonderCon is news that Dan Slott “accidently” let slip his involvement with the Silver Surfer.

As we know, Marvel already teased Silver Surfer as part of their “First” initiative, which I think is a batch of new online digital books.

Well, the story goes that Slott was plugging his lap top in and when it turned on, there were Silver Surfer files on the desktop.

Here’s the full story via the LA Times:

After a technical worker hooked up Slott’s laptop to the large display screens in the room at the Anaheim Convention Center, the writer’s desktop was visible, and it included a couple of items labeled with the name of a different Marvel hero: the Silver Surfer. “What in here should you not see?” he said as he began looking it over and rearranging items. “This is dangerous,” he said a few minutes later.

Asked about the Surfer, Slott told the crowd that Marvel has “cosmic stuff” in the works and said, “It would be fun, and I’m, you know, toying around with it — I won’t lie, I am toying around with the idea. But let’s be serious — I’m doing like two Spider-Man books a month. It ain’t happening.”

While Slott says it ain’t happening, it might not happen as a book, but as the aforementioned digital only comic.

And the kicker?

Spider-Man Nova Stephen Wacker edits Dan Slott.

Good luck.

Perhaps it’s an April Fools joke.
