A milestone for DC

I talked with DC executive editor Dan DiDio yesterday about some fresh blood for the DC universe: namely, the introduction soon into the DCU of characters from the Milestone Comics of the '90s - characters such as Icon, Hardware and Static Shock. Next year, the old Archie Comics superheroes will also find DC their home.

Icon and Hardware will be showing up in "Justice League of America" (written by Milestone co-founder Dwayne McDuffie) while it looks like Static Shock will be joining the Teen Titans. I asked DiDio if the hope is that reader demand will lead to these characters once again starring in their own series.

"Absolutely," he said. "I'm going to see which ones break out, but when you have characters like Icon, Hardware and Static, you'd be surprised if they didn't have series."

Look for more in Sunday's Comics Fan in The Gazette.
