I must confess that I was a late comer to Milestone Media during it's first incarnation in the early 1990s. Much like comic book aficionados today, my brand awareness had blinders toward the big two (Marvel and DC, for the uninitiated). And as pro-Black/pro-minority I may consider myself, I don't recollect being so ethnocentric as it pertains to the nascent period of my comic book collecting and therefore, the historical and cultural importance of Milestone Media fell on my deaf ears. That was then and this is now. I am extremely elated that the remaining principals of Milestone, Derek Dingle and Denys Cowyn (and now with the addition of filmmaker, Reginald Hudlin) in continuance of the work of their late colleague, Dwayne McDuffie, are resurrecting the famed Black owned comics company that originally closed its doors back in '97. Here's more to chew on with Milestone's reemergence, courtesy of io9.com:
Sorry, . In the inarguably best comic news of the week, original co-publisher Derek Dingle, along with writer/producer Reggie Hudlin and artist Denys Cowyn, is resurrecting the late Dwayne McDuffie's Milestone Media, best known as the home of beloved character Static Shock.
