Black History Month ’09 #27: Life Is Illmatic

February 27th, 2009 by | Tags: , , , , ,

Today is a short one. It’s from Icon #30, by Dwayne McDuffie and MD Bright. They say my overall point much better than I could, so I’m going to keep my talking to a minimum.

Really, though- I hope DC does right by Milestone. The company, its legacy, and its characters deserve to be done properly.

  1. That issue top down was one of the best things I read in the last six months.

    I know you talk about Milestone as characters and concepts that should be reborn, but I kind of wish that after DC prints the final issues and the trades, that it’s just left alone. I really wish that someone just started something new and different in other spaces with the same energy. You don’t need Milestone characters to tell stories like this. You only need writers who are good enough and want to tell stories like this.

  2. I’ve been wanting to read this issue for years. Hope DC reprints the old Milestone books soon.

  3. I liked Buck Goliath the best.

  4. Raquel Ervin is BY FAR one of my favorite Black Superheroines…
