After a long, long wait, we’re finally getting some big news out of the Milestone panel at New York Comic Con. In addition to learning about the launch of the Milestone universe as Earth M of the DC multiverse, with an all-star lineup of creators, we’re getting some details on the titles. We’ve heard about Milestone #1, from Reginald Hudlin & Denys Cowan and Ken Lashley starring Icon and Rocket, along with Static Shock by Hudlin, Cowan, and Kyle Baker. We also know about a new series called Duo with story by Hudlin and Cowan, script by Greg Pak, and with covers by Jim Lee.
But perhaps the most shocking announcement of all is that Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman will be involved. Kirkman will be focusing an upcoming episode of his comics history documentary on AMC on Milestone, and he showed up at the DC Milestone panel today to break the news. Bleeding Cool ace reporter Hugh Sheridan is on the ground at New York Comic Con and will be updating us with a full panel report shortly.
