The first thing I loved was when Reggie Hudlin was talking about how Milestone was never a “nostalgia brand.” And how they also want to be super-relevant now, and evolving and growing.

And mentioning Miles Davis and Jazz, and the importance of moving forward, playing what’s now, what’s needed today – which is what Miles Davis was all about. And applying that mentality to their comics.

That’s really cool to me. He gets it. And that’s what it’s about.

And then Nikolas Draper-Ivey and talking about hair. And what’s “now.” What’s cool now.

He gets it too.

And of course his killer art.

The biggest thing for me though I guess was Reggie Hudlin talking about his desire to write Icon and Rocket. His enthusiasm was a bit infectious. [insert smiley face]

And of course the shout out to Doug Braithwaite on the art from Denys Cowan. He said he’s one of his favorite artist of all time. He’s mine too. [insert smiley face]

Doug Braithwaite is the selling point in all of this for me.

And I figured Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz knew each other for a long time – since about 1984 I guess according to Denys Cowan. They’re a great team. Very cool art together.

And yeah, again, Nikolas Draper-Ivey is a really cool guy. I like him.

Overall, I missed Milestone the first time around because it happened during one of my hiatuses from comics, but I’ll be there this time – for this new Rebirth of the Cool.

Dakota City Forever.

Such a great panel. It is always does the heart good to see the legendary Denys Cowan. These are the new books I am looking forward to the most. Already got 'em on the pull list for the summer.

The trading card set brought back so many memories! AquaMaria!!! :white_heart:

Denys Cowan talking about the intersectionality regarding the new updated take on the Milestone character origins and the some of the backlash it caused was the crucial part of the panel for me.

Nikolas Draper-Ivey’s designs look beautiful.
