DC has announced the first issues of the revitalized Milestone Comics, with one series launching in June and another in July. Both series are planned to be six issues.
The writer for Static Season One is Vita Ayala (Ironheart, Bitch Planet); the comic will have layouts by ChrisCross, finishes by Nikolas Draper-Ivey, and main covers by Khary Randolph. Issue 1 will have an old school variant cover by Shawn Martinbrough, a new school variant cover by Nikolas Draper-Ivey, a 1:25 variant by Milestone co-founder Denys Cowan, and a team variant cover by Olivier Coipel. Issue 2 will have a card stock variant cover by Nicholas Draper-Ivey.
All three comics are priced at $3.99 for a 32-page issue with the main cover; variants are priced at $4.99.
Milestone was formed in 1993 as a black-owned comics studio whose comics were published and distributed by DC. After Milestone stopped producing new comics, in 1997, DC made several attempts to incorporate the Milestone characters into its own universe, but ultimately decided to revive Milestone as an imprint (see “Milestone Return to DC Comics Scheduled”). In February, DC announced it would kick off the imprint with a one-shot comic, Milestone Returns: Infinite Edition #0, to be released on May 25 (see “Milestone Comics Returns with a One-Shot Written by Reginald Hudlin”).
