Static: Season One (Hardcover)
Truly a tale for the time being made for the young black future heroes that feel backed into a corner after all the events of the past 5 years. Launching with a BLM protest and ending with collective action, Static is doing what heroes were always meant to do by representing the best parts of us and showing us a way forward through hardship. The art is impeccable and milestone 100% is back with avengeance (yes, this is a dig).— From Hanz
At long last, the most famous face of the Milestone Universe makes his shocking return!
Bullied nerd Virgil Hawkins wasn’t the kind of kid you’d normally find on the streets at a protest—but like everyone else in the city of Dakota, he was fed up. Unfortunately, the first time he stood up to raise his voice, the world turned upside down. The experimental tear gas released that day left some of his classmates maimed or dead…but it left Virgil, and others, with stunning new abilities. Virgil has power inside him now—real power, the ability to channel and manipulate electromagnetic fields.
But there’s anger burning inside him, too.
What is he supposed to do about all of this? And first and foremost—what is he supposed to do about his bullies, now that they’ve got superpowers too?
