At last, it’s the return of the legendary Milestone Comics! This one shot features twenty-four all-new pages chronicling the events of the Big Bang: the police-brutality protest gone wrong that changed the face of the city of Dakota forever by unleashing a wave of superpowers across its population! As the world watches, a bullied teenager will become the hero known as Static… a framed scientist will go on the run as the superweapon Hardware… and a stranded alien will meet an ambitious young woman who will transform his life, and remake the pair as the all-powerful Icon and Rocket!
Also included is the 17-page primer story originally released online during the world-famous DC Fandome event, further expanding on our heroes’ origins and where they’re going next… and setting up an entire world of allies, enemies, and surprises!
The original Milestone changed the face of superhero comics forever, introducing the industry to a wave of Black talent who still shape the conversation…and the new Milestone intends to raise the bar! This is the perfect jumping-on point—don’t miss out!
Each comic sold by Fifth Element is 2 copies per customer, we reserve the right to cancel any orders that contain more than 2 copies of any single issue. 2 copies of each variant cover can be ordered, eg. 2x Cover A, 2x Cover B, 1x Cover C in the same order is fine.
Please be aware that due to many industry accepted flaws for new comics, such as corner wear, printing errors, small tears on the spine, ink smudges, and more, we are unable to accept returns or refunds for items. It is not a realistic expectation to order a comic book online and receive an immaculate comic every single time, so we would recommend visiting a local comic book shop if you are hoping to find a Mint condition comic. Returns are entirely at the discretion of the store and will differ on a case-by-case basis.
All comics that are listed as new are direct from the distributor and unread. All comics listed as preowned have been owned by at least one previous person and will be listed as such.
If your package arrives damaged, we will need to be notified as soon as possible and you will need to provide pictures of the damage to the packaging and the item in order for us to start a claim with the postal carrier. Without images, we will not be able to proceed with refunds for damaged items.
The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 (Clause 13), excludes the cancellation of Newspapers, Periodicals (i.e.comics), Magazines and additionally sealed products, and those sold under Auction terms, and these are therefore not eligible for return/cancellation and we are under no obligation to accept a cancellation or return.
We currently only ship within the UK, so please be aware of this when placing your order.
