STATIC SHOCK - Sneak Peak: Trailer for Issue #1

Scott McDaniel, my collaborator on Static Shock has put together a cool trailer for issue #1 which hits stores September 7th. You can watch it here. If you want to jump into the comic book spoiler free you may want to skip it, or watch it after you've read it.

More Static tomorrow.

How much will this series share with the old TV show? I know I'm not the only one whose only experience with Static Shock is from the DCAU. I'm getting the book either way, but it'd be nice to know ahead of time if I'm going to recognize any elements.

I never had the opportunity to see the tv series, so everything I'm doing is working forward from the original comic book series.

The biggest changes for you are: 1) Static's now in NYC, so he's lost his supporting cast of Frieda, Rick, etc. as well as all of his Dakota villains. 2) Unlike the cartoon, both of his parents are alive and well.

Thanks for answering me. It didn't help much, because I'm not at all familiar with the original comic series (never had a chance to get it), but I'm still massively looking forward to this series.

My understanding is that the tv show and the original series were fairly similar, except that one of Virgil's parents died on the tv show, and a few other minor differences.

Like I said, Static's been moved to a new city, so pretty much his entire supporting cast (except his family) and all his old villains are gone for now. It's a new city with new friends and new villains.
