DC Comics and February 2021 Solicitations Spoilers follows.
Milestone Media’s Static Shock New Series MIA, But That’s By Design?!
You may recall DC Comics announced with much fanfare the return and relaunch of Milestone Media with a whole slate of projects including a new Static Shock series beginning in February 2021 (full spoilers here).
While DC did deliver on its expanded digital back catalogue of Milestone Media titles and delivered a 17-page Milestone Returns #0 free comic book (full spoilers here), the DC Comics February 2021 solicitations did not include the promised Static Shock series.
Well, there’s a good reason for that; that new series is a digital-first (or digital-only?) series. If DC Comics follows usual practices, these digital comics will be collected in some fashion either in a comic book or tpb form at a later date. At that point Static Shock would make it into DC Comics solicitations which focus on print products and other ancillary products such as action figures, etc. So, a net new Static Shock series is still coming in February 2021, but in a digital fashion.
