The government believes the super-powered teenage “Bang Babies” of Dakota are out of control…and they’re too dangerous to be allowed on the streets! When his classmates start disappearing, Virgil Hawkins wants to do the right thing and expose what’s going on…but is there any way to do so without Static getting snatched up himself?

    We may be two issues into this book, but it's really not until this issue where Static is truly born. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Aug 31, 2021

    Static Season One is hitting all the right marks. This is a reimagining of a 90s character done right and it's quickly becoming one of my favorite titles from DC. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Aug 31, 2021

    Static: Season One #3 hits the series' halfway point by cementing the unique bonds Virgil Hawkins has with his friends and family. The next issue promises a rematch with Hotstreak, and now that Virgil has a costume and better control of his powers, I'm eager to see how that turns out. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Sep 7, 2021

    The second life of Milestone is off to a strong start, and the series centered around one of its most notable characters continues to be a truly wonderful mix of old and new. Strong character work, modernization of characters that are still relevant, amazing artwork, and a clear focus on the ultimate goal help make this book fly high. Read Full Review

    Vita Ayala, Nikolas Draper-Ivey, ChrisCross, Will Quintana and AndWorld Design continue to build on to the world of Dakota through Static.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 6, 2021

    Season One #3 was the best issue of this young series thus far. Vita Ayala does a great job balancing out Virgil Hawkins superhero journey and how he interacts with his entire supporting cast. All the moments in this issue are further enhanced by the artwork done by Nikolas Draper-Ivey and Chriscross. It all comes together for yet another example of how Static: Season One has quickly become one of DC Comics best titles. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Sep 1, 2021

    Static: Season One #3 is a good comic. It takes some of my concerns and attempts to use them to shake a familiar formula up. We'll see how well it does that in future issues, but for now it's clear the series is doing things a bit different and keeping things fresh and interesting. Read Full Review

    BGCP - Michael Lennox Sep 6, 2021

    It might mainly be a character and plot development issue but 99% doesn't switch off readers due to the scripting by Ayala and the artwork Chriscross puts in. The next few issues look like they are about to explode so it's worth keeping this title in your subscription. Other DC titles, like Fear State, should look to Static to see how to slowly set up without turning off the audience. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - C.V.R. The Bard Sep 2, 2021

    Ayala's "Static" series is certainly picking up steam in the third issue of the Milestone reboot. If she keeps this up and decides to work with a different penciller, I can smell a "Hot Streak" coming ! Read Full Review
