We have some huge news coming from DC Comics that was announced yesterday. Milestone is finally returning in a big way. We have Static Season One, Icon and Rocket, and finally Hardware making their returns to the comic medium. I’ll post the press release that breaks down all the details as to what we can expect from this.
Static Season One Available Digitally Monday, April 12
Icon and Rocket Available Digitally Monday, June 28
Hardware Available Digitally Monday, August 16
Fans of Static, Icon, Rocket and Hardware can get their first taste of a new look “Dakotaverse” today as Milestone Returns #0: Infinite Edition, available today on participating digital platforms, including Comixology, Amazon Kindle, Nook, Apple, and others. Originally only available as a 17-page comic during last year’s DC FanDome, this “extended cut” adds an additional 24 pages to the original story, reimagining the Big Bang, the Dakota police brutality protest gone wrong that resulted in some of its citizens receiving super powers.
This added content also includes some highly anticipated news, revealing and confirming an exciting mix of legendary talent and new creative voices continuing Milestone’s renaissance. This one-shot (on sale in comic book stores Tuesday, May 25) reveals the covers for the three digital first series spinning out of Milestone Returns #0: Infinite Edition:
Static Season One – written by Vita Ayala, layouts by Chris Cross and finishes by Niklas Draper-Ivey, with covers by Khary Randolph.
Icon and Rocket Season One – written by Reginald Hudlin and Leon Chills, with art by Doug Braithwaite, with covers by Taurin Clarke
Hardware Season One – written by Brandon Thomas, with art by Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz, with covers by Mateus Mahanini
Milestone Returns #0: Infinite Edition is available now on participating digital platforms including Comixology, Amazon Kindle, Apple, Madefire, Nook and others. The 48-page print version arrives in comic book stores on Tuesday, May 25, 2021.
Overall, I’m about to go ahead and buy this Milestone Returns #0. I want to see these characters succeed and become house hold names in the future. I mean Static is already that but he could use the resurgence with a new generation looking for a black character to relate too. As always let us know what you think and I will talk to you later.
