The universe is big. Bigger than you could ever imagine. And the SILVER SURFER, the lone sentinel of the skyways, is about to discover that the best way to see it… is with someone else.
Meet the Earth Girl who’s challenged the Surfer to go beyond the boundaries of the known Marvel U– into the strange, the new, and the utterly fantastic!

Anywhere and Everywhere… Hang On! THE SILVER SURFER

Why It’s Hot: Dan Slott and Michael Allred take on the “Sentinel of the Spaceways” in one of the most anticipated comics of the year. The short story in All New Marvel NOW! Point One and all the preview pages released so far indicate that the comic will be something special. Dan Slott is a self professed huge fan of Doctor Who, and Silver Surfer looks to be his way to bring the essence of what makes The Doctor so popular to the Marvel Universe. There will be adventure, fun, and most of all an epic sense wonder brought to life by the great Michael Allred. This comic is one that isn’t to be missed!

With the opening issue Gaiman and Williams crafted an exquisite opening salvo to the latest chapter of one of the greatest comic books ever made, and there’s no reason to think that every issue will be anything less than a treat for readers.
