The Milestone wiki last edited by Crimson Thunder on 03/03/16 02:08PM View full history

Milestone Media Is a licensing company best known for their line of comics published through DC during the 1990s and several seasons of the popular KidsWB cartoon Static Shock.

The company was formed in 1993 by writers Dwayne McDuffie and Jim Owlsley (Later Christopher Priest), artists Michael Davis and Denys Cowan and magazine editor Derek Dingle. Owlsley (Priest) and Davis would leave the company prior to and shortly after the publication of their first comic Hardware #1 respectively.

The Milestone comics took place in what was know as the Dakotaverse which was centered on the fictional working class Midwestern city of Dakota but the comics themselves visited various real and fictional locales.

A a shared universe, many of the Milestone characters were interconnected and could trace their origins to the colloquially known "Big Bang" on Paris Island.

Milestone was responsible for launching the careers of many of today's top talents in comics, including JH Williams III, John Rozum, John Paul Leon, Jamal Igle, Humberto Ramos as well as many others.
