Milestone Media, the publishing imprint at DC notable for creating characters like Static, Zombi and Icon and promoting the work of African-American comics-creators, has formally announced their publishing return today at SDCC. Original co-founders Denys Cowan, Derek Dingle, and Reginald Hudlin will partner with DC Comics to relaunch Milestone as a part of the DC Multiverse, designating their shared universe as "Earth M."
Potentially huge news today, as Denys Cowan, Reginald Hudlin and Derek Dingle have announced that they'll be relaunching the legendary Milestone Media this year as 'Milestone Media 2.0'.
