A favorite cover from the “Worlds Collide” crossover of 1994 between Milestone and DC! Now THAT’S what you call a super team-up!!!

I get the sense people are enjoying the reissuing of the 90s Hardware comics lately.

I just saw a News Bulletin saying there will be a Hardware miniseries around August as part of the new Milestone Comics relaunch. It’s kind of fun to see that considering the hard time that Jim Lee gave Denys Cowan during Fandome. As Denys kept pushing to have Hardware be part of the relaunch during the Milestone session, Jim kept saying “no” .

I guess the answer is yes now!
