Denys Cowan, one of the founders of Milestone, returns to pencil Hardware: Season One. Cowan provided his talents to the original 1993 series.
Christopher “ChrisCross” Williams, artist on Static: Season One, is a familiar name to Milestone fans, having broken into comics during the original Blood Syndicate run.
The return of Milestone wouldn’t be complete without new faces, both to the imprint and to comics as a whole.
Comic veteran Reginald Hudlin (whose Black Panther work will be familiar to Marvel fans) serves as co-writer on Icon and Rocket: Season One with newcomer Leon Chills (Chills first work in comics). Artist Doug Braithwaite will be bringing his decades of experience as Icon and Rocket’s penciller.
