Static #1 Sells For $177 on eBay After Milestone Static Shock News

This weekend at DC Fandome saw Jim Lee give the re-re-announcement of the relaunch of Milestone Comics from DC Comics, starting in February with Milestone Returns #0, a new Static Shock digital-first comic book, a Static Shock graphic novel and an Icon & Rocket series starting.

Static #1 over $177 with 33 bids.

It remains a creative high point for DC Comics at that time. A return was announced a few years ago by Jim Lee but a combination of a series of creative delays and court cases from Dwayne McDuffie's widow has delayed the return for a number of years.

Its first four titles Hardware, Icon, Blood Syndicate, and Static, with others spinning off a crossover event Shadow War to give us Shadow Cabinet and Xombi followed by Kobalt and more. As the comic book industry contracted, Milestone shut down its comics, even as Static became the animated series Static Shock. But now they are back…
