Static Shock Gets A New Ongoing Series

It’s been what? Seven years! While Static Shock was one of
the most successful TV Shows of it’s time, it only had four seasons. While
Static Shock’s TV series ended in 2004 books, and eventually comics, were what
got Static into mainstream continuity. Static has served on the Teen Titans in
years past, and has had his own ongoing series also. However, that was only ten
years ago. Today Static gets (yet again) another chance at having a series!

Static Shock is a cool superhero. If anything at all, I
personally enjoyed his show better than his ongoing comic. However, now DC
looks for another chance to see what they can do with Static. Felicia Henderson
will be writing the new series starting in May, and will have the artistic
talents of Scott McDaniel and Jonathan Glapion on the series as well.

DC talked to Felicia Henderson about bringing Static back
into comics:

“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.”
