A Comic Book Tale, by Michael Davis, From The Edge
My mother threw out Superman #1 from 1939. This, as it says above, I assure you, is an absolutely true story. My mother Jean Davis, the inspiration for Static's mom Jean Hawkins, was an incredible woman. Raising my sister Sharon and I in what is considered one of the worst housing projects in New York City would have been[...]
Who Are The Other Heroes In The CW Arrow/Flash Spin-off?
While the Mystery Hero seems like it could be Static or Black Lightning I would lean more towards Static since the character has a really good fan base. Though her character is dead, Lotz confirmed she is going to be part of the show while at Fan Fest 2015 as you can see in the video[...]
I Am Static – Michael Davis, From The Edge
Needless to say at the core of any real pop culture movement are its fans, and Milestone's fans take their Milestone seriously.

This looks like it could be Keron Grant's new cover to Static Shock #1 There was meant to be a new Static Shock series starting this Spring by Felicia Henderson, Scott McDaniel and Jonathan Glapion, but it was either postponed or cancelled, depending who you talked to Makes sense that DC may use this relaunch[...]
DC Comments On Static Shock Special
In this morning's Runaround, Bleeding Cool posted a tweet from Tommy Lee Edwards about turning down work on the just-soliocited Static Shock Special. DC is planning a Dwayne McDuffie "tribute" book, but has no plans to donate profits to the poor guy's surviving family or any charity… DC have now told Bleeding Cool; Before Dwayne McDuffie's tragic[...]
Remembering Dwayne McDuffie
And it kept me reading the genre until everyone else could catch up. And he did it again years later over at DC, co-founding Milestone Media, writing Static, Icon and Hardware, books that challenged so many assumptions about character and race, dispelling  assumptions of tokenism over ethnic characters in comics by creating rich and multilayered ensemble[...]
