Get ready to check out a documentary about the creation of comic book publisher Milestone Media.
From a summary for the special: “In 1993, Denys Cowan, Dwayne McDuffie, Derek Dingle, and Michael Davis had an idea: a Black-owned comic book company, in partnership with DC, that would introduce the world to a new universe of the most diverse heroes the world had ever seen.
That idea changed everything. Characters like Static, Icon, Rocket, Hardware, and Blood Syndicate allowed fans to see themselves represented in comics like never before, in stories that were incisive, pulse-pounding, and ahead of their time. But it wasn’t all smooth sailing from there.
Milestone Generations is the electrifying story of Milestone Media, of the challenges they faced in changing the face of superhero storytelling, and of the rebirth of the company – now with entertainment legend Reggie Hudlin helping to steer the ship – just when the world needs the Milestone heroes more than ever.”
The special premieres on HBOMax, on July 29th.
