Last Saturday, DC comics announced the return of Milestone!...kind of... The characters, including Static, Icon, Hardware and Shadow Cabinet, will be joining the DC Universe. Not only that but, according to Dwayne McDuffie, Dakota was always in the DCU. Despite the revisionist history, it will be good to see them again! Right, Dan?

Warren Ellis' online comic, Freak Angels (illustrated by Paul Duffield), tells the story of a telepathic gang "living in a post-flood London that they might possibly have had something to do with." In the tradition of 2000AD, 6 full color pages are released weekly. Every 144 pages, Avatar Press collects and prints a trade.
