From JSJCreative:

For Dwayne McDuffie. Robert L. Washington and all the Milestone Fans.

22 years ago this week Hardware #1 the 1st issue of Milestone Media's comic universe hit the news stands. This month also marks Milestone Co-Creator, Writer & Editor in Chief, Dwayne McDuffie's Birthday and the day of his transition from this world in 2011. Years back after Milestone's first edition of books had ceased publishing, I asked Dwayne if there was something I could do for him, something animated since I had transitision from comics to motion graphics. He asked me to animate an italicized Milestone "M". "That's it??" I thought. He wanted it for his webpage and I let the idea drift away from me.

This past January Oscar nominated Producer, Film Director and Comic Writer Reginald Hudlin, and original Milestone Co-Creator, Creative Director Denys Cowan and President, Derek T. Dingle announced Milestone will return with a live action Static episodic show and more details that will be announced this summer.

The entire piece is designed and animated by me of course. Took about a week from concept to final. Its the least I could do in honor of Dwayne and, it seemed like the perfect time for me to Celebrate Milestone 2.0, Dwayne's Birthday and deliver on his simple ask.

Milestone Forever.
