Static Shock Special
The Static Shock Special hits stores today. Starring the popular Milestone Media character of Static, this issue is a tribute to Static's creator, Dwayne McDuffie, who was also one of my closest friends, who died earlier this year. This issue features the work of a number of Milestone alumni and friends of Dwayne's, including myself. Instead of contributing a story for this issue, I provided a page of pin-up art featuring Icon and Rocket, two more characters created by Dwayne for Milestone. My piece, which reinterprets an old Marvel Family cover, is more of a symbolic tribute to Dwayne, the characters he created, and Milestone Media.
Here is the solicitation info from DC Comics:
Written by FELICIA D. HENDERSON; Art by DENYS COWAN, PRENTIS ROLLINS and others; Cover by DEREC DONOVAN
A special one-shot paying homage to Dwayne McDuffie and the world of Milestone Media, with tribute material from Milestone co-founder Denys Cowan and other Milestone alumni.
