Dan Slott is a prolific and well-known comic book writer, with a ten-year-long run on Spider-Man (the longest of any writer) and well-regarded runs on She-Hulk, Silver Surfer, Avengers: The Initiative, and The Thing.
Slott got his start writing children's comics like Mighty Mouse, Ren & Stimpy, Scooby-Doo, Looney Tunes, and Powerpuff Girls. His first real superhero comic series was a mini-series in DC called Arkham Asylum: Living Hell. This, in turn, led to him being hired by Marvel in 2004 for a new She-Hulk series where Slott had her join the Occult Law Firm of Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg & Holliway.
In 2007, he left She-Hulk to become one of the four main writers on Amazing Spider-Man. Beginning in 2010, he would become the sole writer for the book and remain the sole writer all the way until 2018. Slott's run contained a lot of defining moments for Spider-Man, including Spider-Island (where everyone in Manhattan suddenly gained spider powers), Superior Spider Man (where Doctor Octopus, having switched bodies with Peter and killed him, tries to become a better hero than Spider-Man), and Spider-Verse (where Peter teamed up with a bunch of alternate universe Spider-People and was the basis for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse). His last storyline for Amazing was Go Down Swinging.
In 2016, Slott and Mike Allred won an Eisner Award for Silver Surfer #11. Their Silver Surfer series was praised for being fun and new, while also appearing quite similar to a certain time-traveling doctor and his companion.
In 2022, Slott returned to the Spider-Man franchise as part of the character's 60th anniversary celebrations, contributing a story to Amazing Spider-Man #900 and Amazing Fantasy #1000 in August of that year. In October 2022, a new ongoing, simply titled Spider-Man was launched with Slott writing and art by Mark Bagley. The first storyline of this new title was "End of the Spider-Verse", another entry in the Spider-Verse saga. The story introduced a new Spider hero to the mythos, Bailey Briggs, aka the Spider-Boy.
The Spider-Man title would fold shortly after in August 2023, however, a new Spider-Boy spin-off title was announced in June, with Slott again writing. Slott would launch a new volume of Superior Spider-Man in November 2023 following a giant-size one-shot, Superior Spider-Man Returns, in October.
