Elle se réveille dans une magnifique maison en bord de mer, un homme qu’elle n’a jamais vu est endormi juste à côté d’elle ! Elle n’arrive pas à se souvenir comment elle a pu atterrir ici et elle réalise peu à peu qu’elle a perdu la mémoire. Alors qu’elle prend conscience de son malheur, l’homme à ses côtés lui explique qu’il est Muir Igram, le propriétaire de l’hôtel dans lequel elle se trouve, et qu’il souhaitait l’aider quand il l’a vue allongée sur la plage, inconsciente. Acceptant son aide, elle travaille pour lui en tant que secrétaire, mais au fur et à mesure, elle commence à se dire qu’elle ne retrouvera peut-être plus jamais la mémoire…

DC Reveals its First Wave of Milestone Comics

Following 2020’s panel at DC FanDome Hall of Heroes, DC has announced more details on the return of the fan-favorite Milestone universe of characters from the city of Dakota.

Milestone Returns: Infinite Edition #0

The excitement kicks off February 26 with a digital-first “extended cut” of the Milestone Returns #0 one-shot. Originally available only during 2020’s DC FanDome Hall of Heroes and Explore the Multiverse, this updated edition also arrives in comic book stores on May 25. Milestone Returns: Infinite Edition #0 combines the original 17-page comic with an additional 24 pages of completely new material written by Reginald Hudlin and drawn by artists Denys Cowan, Nikolas Draper-Ivey, Bill Sienkiewicz, and more.

This added content includes a retelling of the events of the Big Bang, the police-brutality protest that unleashed a sudden wave of superpowers in the city of Dakota. This $4.99 “director’s cut” also features content introducing the full new creative teams behind Static, Icon & Rocket, and Hardware, the digital-first series spawned by this new Big Bang, along with a reveal of their issue #1 covers.

In addition, DC’s future plans include the long-awaited launch of Earth M, a new line of comics conceived by Cowan and Hudlin, which will include the return of Duo, introduced to readers in Milestone Returns “#0, and other characters who will also appear in Milestone comics.

Static Digital-First Miniseries

Following in April, fans can expect new adventures of Dakota teenager Virgil Hawkins in a six-issue Static digital-first series.

In this monthly miniseries (20 pages per issue), bullied nerd Virgil is gifted with incredible electromagnetic powers in the wake of the Big Bang. Now he finds himself caught between an over-militarized police response to Black kids getting special abilities and some of those kids who are using those powers in dangerous and destructive ways. But when the bullies who terrorized him before the Big Bang show up with powers of their own, can Static be the hero that Dakota needs?

Static launches Monday, April 12. Each 20-page issue will be available on participating digital platforms for $3.99.

Icon & Rocket Digital-First Miniseries

The return of Augustus Freeman and Raquel Ervin is also in the works, with a new series featuring Icon and Rocket. 

What happens when superheroes actually make a difference? When Raquel Ervin broke into the home of a wealthy Black lawyer, she didn’t expect to learn that he was a nearly omnipotent alien, lost in despair of ever returning home—and he didn’t expect that she would inspire him to emerge from the shadows and become a force for change on the planet he’s trapped on. What starts out as a simple request to stop the drug trafficking in her neighborhood turns into a mission to eliminate the drug trade worldwide. However, this act of heroism has unexpected consequences, making the pair the two most wanted criminals in the world when actually stopping crime leads to the collapse of the global economy! 

The debut issue of this six-issue monthly series (20 pages each) arrives June 21 for $3.99 per issue.

Hardware Digital-First Miniseries

The relaunch of Milestone would not be complete without some mention of Curtis Metcalf, and beginning August 23, the first wave of new Milestone stories climaxes with the return of Hardware in a new digital-first series. This six-issue monthly series features the return of legendary artist and Milestone co-founder Denys Cowan with Bill Sienkiewicz on the character that completes the foundation of Milestone and the Dakota universe, both past, and present.

All his life, young prodigy Curtis Metcalf was told he was special, and that he would save the world. But it turns out that Alva Industries wanted his beautiful mind for something a lot less noble than that—and his technology has made him the fall guy for the tragedy of the Big Bang. But Curtis is smart enough to not go out like that—and smart enough to steal his inventions back from Alva and start the process of remaking the world his way.

New issues of this series will be available each month for $3.99.
