    Default Marvel re-signs Dan Slott to exclusive deal - 20 years and running

    https://www.thepopverse.com/marvel-s...exclusive-2023

    Dan Slott and Marvel have decided to renew their vows.

    No, not marriage - their working vows.

    As announced at LA Comic Con's Spider-Man: Gang War panel, Slott has re-signed his 'exclusive' deal with Marvel Comics for another few years. The exact length of the deal is unknown, but it should include more issues of his current Superior Spider-Man and Spider-Boy series - as well as, presumably more.

    "I'm very grateful to be part of Team Marvel and hope to keep earning my keep with them for years to come!" Slott says.

    According to SLott, his 2022 ook Spider-Man #1 was the the company's best selling comic (in units) for the entire year - and the recent SPider-Boy #1 is on track to be the same for 2023.

    Slott, who began working at Marvel in the early '90s as an intern, bounced around Marvel and DC for a decade on kids' comics before 2003's Arkham Asylum: Living Hell miniseries with Ryan Sook led to him being cast in a new light outside of just kids comics. Slott returned to Marvel in 2004, signing the first of what would be several 'exclusive' deals that paved the way for his historic run on Amazing Spider-Man, his redefining work on She-Hulk, helping revive the one-off character Squirrel Girl and helped conceive the idea of a 'Spider-Verse' - first in video games, and then back in comics, which ended up turning into movies, cartoons, and more.

    Slott is the co-creator of popular characters Spider-Punk, Silk, Spider-Boy, Jackpot, and Mister Negative, as well as the Flash Thompson version of Venom and the internet-breaking Superior Spider-Man.

    And while this is described as an 'exclusive' deal, these 'exclusive' deals at Marvel and DC aren't truly exclusive - it's just that they're prevented from working with their chief competitor (Marvel and DC, DC and Marvel), and that they are contracted to provide a minimum amount of work per year at, usually, a higher rate than if they were not under this deal.

    Outside of Slott's 'exclusive' deal, he is currently writing the Doctor Who comic book series for Titan Comics.
    Congrats to Dan Slott. These kinds of exclusive contracts seem rather rare in today's comics market.

    Congrats Dan!

    Who has had a longer exclusive? Stan? Jack? Claremont?

    Denny O'Neil with DC was a big one I recall. He was DC exclusive for about 14 years, then went to Marvel for 6 years, then went back to DC for another 14.

    Still, this is quite the accomplishment.

    Good for both of them. The only problem is that I'd like to see his creator-owned ideas in action.

    But it seems likely his plate is full with Superior Spider-Man, Spider-Boy and potentially other projects that are more than enough to keep his busy (especially with the carveout for Doctor Who- by the way, that was an excellent one-shot.)
    Sincerely,

    I'm personally torn about Dan Slott, because he gave me the Superior Spider-Man, but also he took away Ben Reilly from me when he turned him into a villain... But congratulations!

    I hope he'll fix Ben Reilly so he can be Sensational again (if Ben's status won't change till that time). Also, give us more of Superior Spider-Man!

    Good for him, but the bit about Doctor Who is wrong, since that was an oversized one-shot starring the Tenth Doctor and Martha Jones, and not the ongoing, which is relaunching with the Fifteenth Doctor on Free Comic Book Day. The writer for that is Dan Watters.

    He's doing two more specials.

    It's an annual thing.

    Great to hear! Much deserved, imo, and selfishly, I'm very excited to see another few years of Dan writing in the Spider-verse
