Comic book writer Morgan Hampton of Black Nerd Problems is a graduate of the new Milestone Initiative Talent Development Program. And he will be launching a new Cyborg comic book with artist Tom Raney, co-creator of Jenny Sparks and Jack Hawksmoor, on the 16th of May. As part of the Dawn Of DC, it was previously described it as "Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths forever changed Victor Stone, and now, as Dawn of DC rises, he might just hold the secret to Earth's future!"
Morgan Hampton writes on Instagram, "I'm writing a CYBORG series!!! I've been sitting on this one for a minute. There's not much I can say at this point other than that, but I am beyond excited to helm a series for one of my favorite characters. My inner child is losing his damn mind right now. I've wanted this for years. I can't thank my editor @marquis.draper enough for thinking of me yet again and giving me this life changing opportunity. I still can't believe it, and it probably won't feel real until I'm holding it in my hands. I can't wait to show you some of the stuff I'm cooking up with @tomraneyart @matiyehcolors, and @em_galmon but until then, its time to get back to work #BOOYAH"
When a family emergency brings Cyborg back home to Detroit, Victor Stone surprisingly finds himself enjoying returning to the simpler life—where everybody sees him for who he really is and always was, rather than a larger-than-life superhero. It's been a while since Vic's been able to lower his guard and seek a purpose outside of being Cyborg 24/7. But a lot has changed in Detroit while Victor's been away. An aggressive new company is turning the Motor City into an overclocked engine for revolutionary artificial intelligence…and no one knows better than Cyborg that technological transformation always comes at a steep human price! Fans can also get a preview of what's to come for Cyborg in Hampton's story in DC Power: A Celebration available on January 31.

"After the near-Multiverse-ending events in Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths and DC Universe: Lazarus Planet, the DC Universe will be heading toward the light," said DC publisher and chief creative officer Jim Lee.
