Milestone Media is a company best known for creating Milestone Comics, which were published and distributed by DC Comics and the Static Shock animated series. It was founded in 1993 by a coalition of African-American artists and writers, consisting of the late Dwayne McDuffie, Denys Cowan, Michael Davis and Derek T. Dingle. The founders observed that minorities were severely underrepresented in American comics and wished to address this.
