DC’s Static Shock to Star in His Own Book This Spring


DC’s The Source blog has revealed that DC will be launching a new ongoing Static Shock series, which will be written by Felicia Henderson, with artwork by Scott McDaniel and Jonathan Glapion.

The new series will mark almost a decade since the character has appeared in his own book. Static Shock is an original character from DC’s Milestone Comics imprint, who first appeared in Static #1 (April 1993), and was created by Dwayne McDuffie and John Paul Leon.

DC asked writer Felicia Henderson to tell them a bit about what it’s like to be bringing the character back:

I always had my fingers crossed about Static getting his own book, again.  In fact, I stalked Dan DiDio about the idea.  I’m also a big Dwayne McDuffie fan, and if I could choose my real life little brother, he’d be Static!  I love his relationship with his family, particularly with his sister. It feels very grounded and real to me. I love how much he cares about Dakota and that he’s a typical guy in a lot of ways. And nothing’s more fun to write than raging hormones, a dedication to doing the right thing for the right reasons, all while still trying to figure out who you are and what you really want.
