> According to "All the Rage" on Silver Bullet Comics, Dan Slott is leaving "She-Hulk" to pick up something big. Seeing as Mr. Slott has risen through the ranks very quickly at Marvel, and they obviously think very highly of his work (giving him "Avengers: The Initiative" and having him at the recent annual creative summit), coupled with the fact that he is the writer of the FCBD "SM: Swing Shift," I think it's fair to speculuate that he will be the next writer of ASM. Reportedly, the announcement will be made in June at Wizard World in my hometown of Philly.
> My reaction (if true): I'm speechless. This is exactly what I've been calling for for months (if not years), and I could not be more excited. Slott was born to write ASM, and I truly believe if he gets the job, he will knock it out of the park. I really hope this happens.

I love Dan Slott's work - She-Hulk, The Thing, Spidey/Human Torch and GLA/GLX have all been excellent and I think he'd be a great fit for ASM.

His recent involvement in the Marvel Editorial Summit, with just a handful of other writers, indicates that he is definitely going to be playing a major role in the Marvel Universe. I know he already writes CW:Initiative, but it would make sense for him to take on another MAJOR title like ASM.

I've enjoyed JMS' run on ASM, but I do recognise his faults as a writer and I think Slott would be a great counter-balance to the JMS run. He would probably use a lot of Spidey continuity, with classic villains and supporting cast.

Well, I guess all we can do is wait and see. If the choice is between Loeb and Slott I would definitely pick Slott.


Completely agree with you friend. I too have loved Slott's work and been waiting for him to be given ASM. If Slott comes on board and Peter David stays, I will be in Spider-Man heaven.

Making room for baby so dad has to sell lots of his comics on EBay! Lots of Hulk, Batman, Marvel, DC and alternative stuff! Check it out!
