From fans to retailers and press, the excitement surrounding the return of Milestone to DC is at a fever pitch, and DC is releasing more news about the return of the imprint and its groundbreaking characters Static, Icon and Rocket, and Hardware.

While the Milestone Returns #0: Infinite Edition is available now digitally and in comic book stores on May 25, the three series spinning out from it will now release simultaneously on participating digital platforms and in comic book stores. This new release schedule will now enable both digital and print comic readers to experience these great new stories and storytellers at the same time.

  • 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 15

  • 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 27

  • 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 10

Each series will be supported by a robust variant-cover plan; the launch of Static Season One will include a retailer-exclusive variant cover program, plus a “team” variant by artist Olivier Coipel. 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 23, 2021.

Sign me up.

I was getting it digitally anyway, so nothing changes for me.

Oh, and maybe do an animated series and movie too while you’re at it, DC and Warner Bros… [insert smiley face]

This is awesome! Getting to read all of these books the day they are released, without having to pay a cent extra, is a great perk for us DCUI subscribers. I don’t know a lot about Hardware, Icon or Rocket but I’m looking forward to reading these books and getting to know them.

Question - do these have anything to do with Future State/Infinite Frontier? I haven’t read any of those yet as I’m waiting until they arrive on here this summer so if these are standalone books/stories I’ll dig in the day they come out but if they are related to the events of those two events I may hold off until I’ve had a chance to read them first.

Oh hell yeah! Another big win for DCUI.

They do not! These Milestone books are set in their own separate continuity.

Yep, the Milestone characters are set on their own Earth-M… is it?

Way back in 2015 that’s what the situation was at least.

A few things have changed since that announcement of course, but I’m assuming Earth-M is still in play?

Or it may have a number now… either one.

I like Earth-M though, so that’s what I’m going with. [insert smiley face]

So excited for this. Loved how they adjusted everything to modern times for Milestone Returns, and can’t wait for more. Bummed about the April to June bump, but I’ll probably make it. :wink:
