anDome LIVE: DC's Surprise Comics Panel is All About Milestone
DC FanDome is hosting a surprise DC Comics panel which promises major announcements, including the return of Milestone Comics.

With DC FanDome in full swing, DC Comics is hosting a surprise panel that will deliver major surprises to the company's upcoming publishing line. Though the description of the FanDome panel is light on details, the surprise is an update on DC's revival of Milestone Comics.

Moderating the panel is Mark Bernardin, joined by Denys Cowan, Jim Lee, Phil LaMarr and Reginald Hudlin.

Hudlin shared how he initially missed out on joining Milestone when it first launched in 1993. LaMarr, who voiced Static Shock on the hero's titular animated series, spoke on how he became familiar with Milestone.

When asked if there is any news on bringing Milestone to the big screen, Hudlin replied, "We're in serious conversations about developing a Static Shock movie. That will be a theatrical feature film. What we're talking about is unbelievable. We're also talking to all the other divisions of Warner Bros. For example, the animation department makes those amazing animated films for home entertainment. We're talking about doing one of those feature films starring the Milestone characters. We're also looking at new media like podcasts, and doing a series that will be available as podcasts. We will deliver Milestone Media wherever you are and whatever platform you want."


Lee revealed a Feb. 2021 relaunch of Milestone Media. Every month leading up to the relaunch, DC will release the Milestone backlog of comics. Milestone’s return to publishing will be led by an all-new Static Shock digital comic series scheduled for Feb. 2021. Future offerings will include a Static Shock original graphic novel written by Hudlin with art by Kyle Baker, plus the return of Milestone heroes Icon & Rocket, also written by Hudlin with art by Cowan and more to be announced

Thanks. And also thanks to DC for putting the zero issue out to read for free. I liked the artwork and the redesigns for Static and Icon (though I wish he still had a red, black, and green costume) a lot. The interplay between Icon and Rocket I could see getting annoying if she is leading and bossing him around in their series. In the old books I felt Icon had more of say so, and he didn't feel as alien as he felt here. I thought when he was listing the ills plaguing the world and Raquel's neighborhood that he should've also mentioned personal responsibility, owing to the old Icon being a conservative. I got a feeling that the new Icon isn't going to go there, and perhaps just might be depicted as an alien that needs, or gets enlightenment whether asked for it or not by Raquel.

I am curious to see if there will be a Big Bang and how that might come about. I wouldn't have minded seeing a few more Milestone characters being introduced into this issue. It felt a bit choppy at first because it started with the Icon & Rocket origin and then jumped to the UN speech and a kind of Milestone sampler. I'm assuming we will get to see more of the first meeting between Icon and Rocket in their own book than what we got here.
