Trailer arrives for DC’s Static Shock #1

Somehow I missed that Scott McDaniel got the jump on the trailers for individual titles in DC Comics’ September relaunch with this teaser for Static Shock #1, which of course stars the Milestone superhero created by Dwayne McDuffie and John Paul Leon.

The brilliant, slightly awkward high school student Virgil Hawkins transforms into the cocky electromagnetic hero Static!

A mysterious tragedy forces the Hawkins family to relocate from Dakota to New York City! Virgil embarks upon new adventures in a new high school and a new internship at S.T.A.R. Labs!

As Static, he dons a new uniform and establishes a new secret headquarters! But is he ready to take on the new villains who lurk in New York City’s underworld?

Written by McDaniel and John Rozum, and illustrated by McDaniel, Jonathan Glapion and LeBeau Underwood, Static Shock #1 arrives in stores on Sept. 7.



the trailer has me intrigued to pick up static . mostly to find out who the new bad guys are and what the mystery that has static relocate to new york.


Spread the word about this comic.

This is one of the two new 52 comics that my teenage son is most looking forward to reading. I figure that’s what DC wants, what comics retailers want. Younger (i.e. teenage) readers. I know I’ll be reading this one, too.

And for Milestone fans, the fact that Hardware is a supporting character in the book certainly means the rest of Dakota has not been forgotten.
