DC Comics Rethink: Milestone Comics To Relaunch, Now With Same Day And Date Print Copies
by Olly MacNamee
The return of Milestone characters into comics was initially announced as a DC Universe Infinite exclusive. But it would seem that’s now been rethought and I’m pleased to see that more sensible heads have prevailed. DC Comics will have rightfully decided to release each six-issue series in print on the same day and date as the digital issues.
Here’s the first three announced series and their launch dates. Now available online and in print:
- Static: Season One, written by Vita Ayala, with layouts by CHRISCROSS, finishes by Nikolas Draper-Ivey with covers by Khary Randolph launches in print and digital on June 15th.
- Icon and Rocket: Season One, co-written by Reggie Hudlin and Leon Chills, with art by Doug Braithwaite and covers by Taurin Clarke launches in print and digital on July 27th.
- Hardware: Season One, written by Brandon Thomas, with art by Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz with covers by Mateus Mahanini, launches in print and digital on August 10th.
The launch of Static Season One will include a retailer-exclusive variant cover program, plus a “team” variant by artist Olivier Coipel. With all series having variant covers attcahed. The full variant cover program details will be revealed in future issues of DC CONNECT, beginning with issue #12, available online on or before April 23th, 2021.
