    Last time we saw animated versions of Milestone characters was in the great Young Justice series. What are the chances of seeing them pop up in any of the upcoming DC animated features or the DC Nation shorts?

    Hey, people have been reading here for a while, and you’ve already answered a bunch of questions for CMix’s loyal readers. BC readers are new to the game.

    Do you think Milestone would be better off away from DC ? As the move and feel of the new 52 might not me the best place for it ! Somewhere they would put up the all the old runs online to read and omnibus printed for those who missed it the first time around, helping building up an new readership who are more open minded and would not judge them as not real DC comics

    1.) Gotcha. Fair enough.

    2.) Would it work for the direct market, though? Would the direct market bite?

    3.) So there’s a possibility of a Static book with a consistent upper-tier number of sales and lasting at least 100 issues in the current market? What do you think a potential Static book needs to do in order for that to happen? What are things it should include to ensure that it does?

    4.) So there’s no need to worry about reprints of DCU stories featuring Milestone characters being blocked in the future? No potential problems that would put a stop to those stories, whatever they may be, being reprinted? The Marvel Team-Up + Rom and Micronauts situation at Marvel is pretty painful :(

    5.) Would they be big names or writers that can sell? And how come they haven’t made any attempts or we haven’t seen them make any attempt to do so?

    Also, what particular writers would you have in mind for stories featuring particular Milestone characters, or even stories for teams featuring both Milestone and DC characters?

    6.) I meant freedom for DC. One reason we aren’t seeing Milestone characters appearing in DCU books or appearing in any DCU teams is that DC might feel they might have very little freedom with what to do with the characters in those stories. I’m not sure if that is actually the case, but it seemingly might be a reason we’re not seeing any appearances in those books.

    7.) That’s awesome to know. I certainly hope nothing’s rocky.

    8. Any chance of us definitely seeing more Static, Xombi, Icon and Rocket in the DCU? (I’d love to see Xombi join Justice League Dark) Any ways to ensure this happens? And what needs to be done to ensure it happens at a more consistent rate?

    9.) Speaking of reprints, any chance of us getting full reprints of all the original Milestone stories in the future?

    10.) Piggybacking off of Ryan Dean’s question, is there any chance that Milestone characters could make guest-appearances in both the Arrow and Flash shows, or even the upcoming Constantine show?

    Any way the producers might be down with it?

    11.) Why no lil’ Static in Tiny Titans? :( Could you at least speak with Franco and Art? Show them why Static would be an awesome character for the book? Pretty please?

    12. ) BTW, have you read the past Tiny Titans issues and trades? You should. Awesome all-ages stuff.

    And hey, now there’s THREE people on here, at least (so far). :)

    Thanks for answering our questions.

    • Doctor….DAMN.

      That’s an whole other article worth of questions. OK-I’ll get on that but my next article WAS going to be a listing of personal cell phone numbers of porn stars who love comic book fans.


      You had to go ruin it for EVERYBODY.
