Peter David Writing Silver Surfer, Fantastic Four, Guardians of the Galaxy

Marvel Cosmic continues going in the right direction as Peter David is writing a three-part series with "The Prodigal Sun," which includes Fantastic Four, Silver Surfer and Guardians of the Galaxy.

Marvel Comics has released the solicit info, which sees the three-parter kick off in July with Fantastic Four: The Prodigal Sun #1, followed in August by Silver Surfer: The Prodigal Sun #1, and concludes in September with Guardians of the Galaxy: The Prodigal Sun #1.

Each issue is a 40-page one shot, so they should be pretty good. 

This month also saw the release of Donny Cates' Silver Surfer Black #1, which was really good. Don't let the art fool you, it fits with the story, and I liked it a lot. The Guardians of the Galaxy annual was also released featuring stories with Nova, Quasar, and Darkhawk, which I thought was just okay, but it didn't impress me that much.

Here is the solicit info and covers for Peter David's The Prodigal Sun:
