Static Shock and the return of the Milestone

The announcement of the film on Static Shock is only the latest piece of the previously announced return of Milestone within the DC editorial proposal.

Milestone Media was founded in 1993 by a group of African-American authors including Dwayne McDuffie, Denys Cowan, Michael Davis and Derek T. Dingle. These authors became spokespersons for the need to represent minorities in the comic medium, obviously specifically in the panorama of superhero comics, with particular attention to the black population. The best-known character of Milestone is certainly Static Shock also protagonist of an animated series that aired starting from 2000.

The relaunch of the line starting from February 2021. It will start with a graphic novel by Reginald Hudlin and Kyle Baker and a regular digital first series, by an author who has not yet been able to reveal himself, dedicated to Static Shock, a project dedicated to Icon and Rocket by Reginald Hudlin and Denys Cowan and the introduction of new characters. Young adult solutions are also being studied as already done for the other DC characters.

The relaunch of the line will be preceded by a one-shot entitled Milestone Returns Zero which will be available on September 12 to coincide with the second day of the DC FanDome. It will be a 17-page issue written by Reggie Hudlin and Greg Pak with pencils by Denys Cowan, Chris Sotomayor, Jim Lee, Ryan Benjamin, Khoi Pham, Scott Hanna, Bill Sienkiewicz, Don Ho, Alex Sinclair and Deron Bennett.

Waiting to read the return of the Milestone heroes, some non-literate tables have been released in which, however, we can already see the restyling of Static Shock and Icon & Rocket:

Also during the bread it was also confirmed that the original Milestone series will be progressively made available digitally on the main platforms.
