With Static garnering big pub, it's no big startlement that a graphic novel was published collecting his earlier exploits. (It's more of a shock, frankly, that Icon and Hardware also managed to get the trade collection treatment, both being phenomenal characters but now sadly relegated to obscure status.) Anyway, STATIC SHOCK: REBIRTH OF THE COOL reprints STATIC #1-4 from 1993 and STATIC SHOCK!: REBIRTH OF THE COOL #1-4 from 2001, with writers Dwayne McDuffie and Robert L. Washington III and artists John Paul Leon and Denys Cowan masterminding Virgil's formative story arcs.
Part of Static's appeal is that he is the most fun-having superhero in the Milestone universe, let alone in Dakota City, with maybe Icon's sidekick, Rocket, coming in as second. When he made his debut he reminded me instantly of Peter Parker in the way that he was this bright kid with a good heart who got bullied around. A bad decision on Virgil's part led him to Paris Island, rendezvous point of a mass gang summit. The law's experimental tear gas, deployed to pacify the hoods, accounted for horrific casualties, but there were survivors of this Big Bang event, plenty of whom developed paranormal abilities.Read more ›
