Good move! I hope as more news comes out this place can become as active as the old Dwayne McDuffie forum.

is it too early for fan-art? i still got milestone drawings from back in the day when i applied for a writer/artist position. i still got the letter & a referral from a very special guy! hmmmm? besides storm & supa-cat... it's the only other black comic-book characters i use to draw.
 
things are about to get real interesting, conceptually.

man o man, it's a must see. ha, for the record, it's not entitlement. it's me on my continued campaign. a campaign i did not expect to see here on the HEF.

i know, i get it, tell me something i don't know. 

milestone media, congrats HEF

Sure, we can start a fan art thread on this page...and there is already a fan art and cosplay page on the Milestone.media site as well.

Hey Reg, when things get up and running, will there be a place for aspiring artists to submit to draw/ink for Milestone, or are you guys mainly going for established artists at first?

Though in working on Indy stuff, I would love to pencil for a milestone such as this (see what I did there? Eh, eh? Milestone... I promise I draw better than my puns...).

When things get further along, we will set up a submissions process on the Milestone.media website.

Denys Cowan, Dwayne McDuffie and BE’s Derek Dingle

“Milestone was the shared vision that we would provide the world with images that had been excluded from the mainstream for decades. Dwayne was the key to making that dream a reality to our company and comic book fans, as well as those who sought tales of adventure.

He was an integral part in negotiating the groundbreaking publishing, marketing and licensing agreement that the Milestone partners structured with DC Comics (a division of Time Warner)—one of the most innovative distribution deals in the comic book industry at the time. In fact, Dwayne’s contributions to business diversity were so significant that it earned him a place on the November
1994 issue of BLACK ENTERPRISE Magazine"
