DC Comics sets first wave of Milestone Comics

Feb 12, 2021


Milestone is back, and fans who missed out on Milestone Returns #0 at DC Fandome get another shot at a reintroduction to the characters on Feb. 26 with Milestone Returns: Infinite Edition #0. Arriving digitally Feb. 26, Milestone Returns: Infinite Edition #0 includes the original 17 pages from the DC Fandome edition — in addition to 24 new pages.

But that’s just the beginning. There will be three Milestone six-issue, digital-first miniseries released monthly starting in the spring and heading into the summer.

First comes Static, featuring none other than Virgil Hawks, Static Shock. This miniseries begins April 12.

…bullied nerd Virgil is gifted with incredible electromagnetic powers in the wake of the Big Bang. Now he finds himself caught between an over-militarized police response to Black kids getting special abilities and some of those kids who are using those powers in dangerous and destructive ways. But when the bullies who terrorized him before the Big Bang show up with powers of their own, can Static be the hero that Dakota needs?

Then on June 21, DC fans get Icon & Rocket.

DC Fandome Returning OCtober 16th!

What happens when superheroes actually make a difference? When Raquel Ervin broke into the home of a wealthy Black lawyer, she didn’t expect to learn that he was a nearly omnipotent alien, lost in despair of ever returning home—and he didn’t expect that she would inspire him to emerge from the shadows and become a force for change on the planet he’s trapped on.

What starts out as a simple request to stop the drug trafficking in her neighborhood turns into a mission to eliminate the drug trade worldwide. However, this act of heroism has unexpected consequences, making the pair the two most wanted criminals in the world when actually stopping crime leads to the collapse of the global economy!

Last but not least, comes Hardware. Starting on August 23, this miniseries features work from Milestone cofounder Denys Cowan, along with Bill Sienkiewicz.

All his life, young prodigy Curtis Metcalf was told he was special, and that he would save the world. But it turns out that Alva Industries wanted his beautiful mind for something a lot less noble than that—and his technology has made him the fall guy for the tragedy of the Big Bang. But Curtis is smart enough to not go out like that—and smart enough to steal his inventions back from Alva and start the process of remaking the world his way.

Each Milestone issue will be released Mondays and cost $3.99Additionally, DC announced it has future plans to launch Earth M, “a new line of comics conceived by Cowan and [Reggie] Hudlin, which will include the return of Duo, introduced to readers in Milestone Returns #0, and other characters who will also appear in Milestone comics.”
