DC Comics brings us another tale from the world of Milestone Comics, this time we’re getting a First-Look at Icon & Rocket: Season One Issue One. Writers Reginald Hudlin and Leon Chills team up with Artist Doug Braithwaite to bring us a tale about a stranded alien who discovers that he possesses remarkable powers… and is disgusted with the human race. It isn’t about Superman or Metropolis but it will be exciting and bring thrills and suspense! Here is how DC describes the newest chapter in Milestone:
“Long ago, the stranded alien known as Arnus gave up hope of returning to his home planet. Tragically, he’d also realized that his adopted home of Earth was beyond saving. Content to waste away his long life in a human guise, Arnus was past caring…until the day a young woman named Raquel Ervin crashed into his life. Soon she’d convinced him to put his incredible power to work again as the heroic Icon…and to transform her into his sidekick, Rocket! But an innocent question on Rocket’s part—“Why can’t we do something about the drugs on my corner?”—quickly sets a chain of events in motion leading to the pair becoming the most hunted beings on Earth…and they’re not just being pursued by Earthlings, either!
Writer, director, and producer Reginald Hudlin (Black Panther: Who Is the Black Panther?) and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite unleash a tale of power and responsibility that will stretch from the boardrooms of corporate America to the jungles of South America and the depths of deep space! If you’ve ever thought there were certain things that a superhero story just couldn’t do, it might be time to start thinking differently…“
Icon & Rocket Season One, Issue One will be available digitally and physically on July 27th, 2021. It is the second series in the relaunch of Milestone Comics, be sure to check out my review for Milestone Returns and Static Season One, Issue One!
