Milestone Comics was a big, groundbreaking idea back in the 1990s, and now it’s coming back to comics in a big way.
At the New York Comic Con, DC Comics announced plans to launch five new titles featuring characters from the 1990s imprint. The new initiative, called Earth M, will feature creators like Reginald Hudlin, Ken Lashley, Greg Pak, Kyle Baker and more.
Here’s a rundown of the titles announced:
The launch book will be Milestone, and “will create the foundation and over-arching storyline for future Earth M titles.” Writer Reginald Hudlin and artist Ken Lashley will focus on Icon and Rocket in the title, which will feature other Dakota Universe characters from the 1990s.
Static Shock, an ongoing from Hudlin and Kyle Baker, focusing on 14-year-old Virgil Hawkins, the kid with electrical powers.
Love Army, a miniseries by Hudlin, about a secret army of women with amazing abilities and super-strength, sworn to protect the planet.
Duo, a miniseries written by Pak that tells the “twisted story of a couple sharing one body for eternity.”
Earth M, an anthology featuring a mysterious new vigilante character.
“We know fans have been waiting for the return of Milestone Media and we’re excited to collaborate with Reggie and Denys to build this new Earth M universe,” said DC Publisher Jim Lee. “This world will reintroduce iconic characters fans know and love—along with new, bold, original concepts—creating a new platform dedicated to inclusion and great storytelling.”
