Couldn't read this. I mean, I literally couldn't.  I couldn't follow it...maybe because I actually know what happened vs spin.

I started to, but I got sidetracked.
I wasn't sure if it was 2.0 or the past.
Either way, I'm sorry that Milestone 2.0 is DOA Reggie Reg.

We've got your back Mr. Reggie!  Let us know how we can spread the word on the upcoming coolness!

I actually read it now.

I wasn't there during the founding of Milestone. But I've talked with every founder.  All the stories are consistent - except one.

Whoa. Thanks for weighing on this. I was hoping the project wasn't dead.

Milestone 2.0 dead? Love My Lights Out

Wicked title, yes. I thought it was an entertaining & insightful read. Maybe some bitter sweet choice words (spin). The article was more about past experiences dealing directly with Milestone & DC. keyword= past.

Is Milestone 2.0 a priority publisher? A better title? Managing Milestone?

The wait is tough.

What would you bring to the table?

What would I do differently (if I had the opportunity to address Jim, Denys and Reggie)?

I'd start small.  (animated shorts. James Bond intro stuff for each character) something like...

We uncovered this rare tape via the George Washington Carver National Monument. 1939
George Washington Carver on Ego and Self

The vision for M&M 2.0?

That's a meeting not a blog post. But I'm good with examples for a presentation.

example #1:
for STATIC XO

Bey- "XO"

"In the darkest night i'll... i search thru the crowd... Love My Lights Out"

Oh, yeah. I'd hire ME as a creative consultant/ director. Honestly

I'm  a bit dissappointed that I havent seen any Milestone in print yet.  I enjoyed Milestone in their own Dakota Universe. Hope they can deliver soon. Im more excited about new Hardware,Icon, Xombi or some new characters  instead of more Static.

I own all the Milestone issues and wonder why Static was the main thing that caught on. Hardware was a far better book but Blood Syndicate blew them both out the water. To this day I dislike Icon for being too similar to Superman and a conservative know-it-all, but it was really Rocket's comic anyway.

If it were up to me I'd avoid comics altogether and try to push the Milestone concepts to Netflix as animated movies. Blood Syndicate would work well in live action.

I agree. Id like to see an animated Milestone series where each episode tells the origin of that character . For example
Episode 1. Hardware
Episode 2. Blood Synficate
Episode 3. Icon
Episode 4. Static
Episode 5. Xombi
Episode 6.Shadow Cabinet
Episode 7.Shadow War storyline
Episode  8.Kobalt
Episode  9. Hardware
Episode 10.Blood Syndicate
Episode 11.Icon
Episode 12. Static
Episode 13. ?
