Vita Ayala and Nikolas Draper-Ivey, helming fan-favorite Static: Season One and critically lauded Static: Shadows of Dakota, know a little something at making Milestone’s return a must-see event, with each issue harkening back to the beloved Static Shock! animated series.
Fans of Static and Static Shock! are about to lose their collective minds this June when Static and Anansi have their first-ever comic book team-up! Written by Evan Narcisse (DC Power: A Celebration, Batman: Gotham Knights – Gilded City, Milestone 30th Anniversary Special), Static: Team-Up: Anansi #1 will feature art by Charles Stewart III, in his DC debut from The Milestone Initiative Talent Development program. The main cover for this one-shot is brought to you by Static: Shadows of Dakota co-writer and artist Nikolas Draper-Ivey, with an open to buy variant cover by Natacha Bustos (DC Power: A Celebration), plus a 1:25 ratio variant cover by Cyborg cover artist Edwin Galmon.
Taking place between Static: Season One and Static: Shadows of Dakota, Static Team-Up: Anansi follows the popular African superhero as he takes a trip to Dakota on the hunt for a supernatural issue. The occult face of the Milestone Universe turns out to be a two-man job as Anansi realizes he’ll need Static’s help!
Static: Shadows of Dakota will pick up on July 4 with issue #5, followed by issue #6 August 1, with the series concluding on September 5 with issue #7.
Keep your eyes peeled on your local comic book shops and participating retailers for Tuesday, June 6th, 2023, when Static Team-Up: Anansi #1 drops. Static: Season One will be available as a six-issue collection as well.
