“Comic-Con, Co-publishers Dan Didio and Jim Lee spoke to the press about the future of DC comics and their current event, Rebirth.”  Both men mentioned that this past June saw the biggest sales numbers since 1997, pointing to the diversity of characters and a return to origin stories as the key.  They also mentioned the return of Milestone Comics and their flagship character, Static Shock.  For those unfamiliar “the former imprint featured African-American creators working on books that featured incredibly underrepresented minority characters.”
