DC detailed the return of Milestone Media Thursday at New York Comic Con. Milestone co-founders Denys Cowan and Derek Dingle are back, along with film writer/producer Reginald Hudlin and comics creators Greg Pak, Kyle Baker, Alice Randall, and Ken Lashley. The universe's rebirth is being branded Earth M.

The first series of the new universe will be Milestone, written by Hudlin with art by Lashley. It will feature Icon and Rocket as lead characters. Other series include Static Shock from Hudlin with art by Baker, Duo written by Pak, Love Army written by Hudlin, and Earth M written by Hudlin and Randall.

Hudlin said that Earth M wouldn't be a total reset and won't lean on the past either.

"We thought the Milestone characters work outside of the mainline DC Universe," said Hudlin. "Milestone reflected the times it was created in," he noted, "and we want these new series to reflect these times. Milestone isn't just black and brown characters, there were gay characters way before that was the norm. For us to repeat and rehash what was done before was not that exciting to us."

DC will also be rereleasing classic Milestone titles in a digital format.

The Earth M universe is set to launch in Spring 2018.
