Marvel released the following RAD! teaser earlier today where we see Dan Slott and Mike Allred are involved.

Interestingly enough, Slott "accidently" let a reporter take a peek look at his laptop, which had Silver Surfer files on the desktop back in April.

And Surfer's real name happens to be Norrin Radd.

Guess we'll find out at the NYCC.

Marvel has recently rebooted their cosmic line in an attempt to cash in on the X-Men and Avengers crowd, which doesn't seem to be working. The Loeb Nova series is currently selling less than the previous 2007 run by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, and Guardians of the Galaxy is currently getting multiple variants each issue as well as basically being just another Avengers title i.e. the Guardians take a back seat to everything.

It remains to be seen what will happen with the Silver Surfer, but EIC Axel Alonso said Marvel has plans to reintroduce the character, which he also stated for Adam Warlock. Guess Slott can't do much worse than Surfer being a fry cook, eh?

The Silver Surfer most recently appeared in Daredevil #30 as well as an Infinity Infite comic, and was mentioned as being part of the second wave of Marvel NOW! titles.
