(Everybody’s Talkin’ About) DC Comics-The New 52, Wednesday...

By David Hyde Wednesday, September 7th, 2011
Here’s the latest and greatest coverage on DC COMICS-THE NEW 52: New York gets a new superhero today with the release of STATIC SHOCK # 1. Static (aka Virgil Hawkins) has moved from Dakota to the Big Apple - and THE NEW YORK DAILY NEWS has the scoop about Harlem’s newest hero, with interviews with writer John Rozum and co-writer and artist Scott McDaniel. Said Rozum, “Static's adventures take him all over New York City and elsewhere. Virgil and his family live in Harlem, his school's in Harlem, and as he makes friends, they'll all be in Harlem as well, so this will really be his neighborhood and the background of his life.” Adds McDaniel about the character of Static, “That yearning to stand against the tide of evil, to refuse to sink into despair, to seek justice with all your human might, to devote yourself to something so completely that you become the best there is, are all themes that many people can relate to in their own lives.” Florida's largest newspaper, the ST. PETERSBURG TIMES, had a feature interview with writer Eric Wallace (MISTER TERRIFIC) about the diverse line-up in DC Comics ­ The New 52. According to Wallace, “Comic books, just like every other medium, need to start reflecting the audience that is consuming the medium. It's like being 14 again, because we're creating the book the 14-year-old boy inside me has always wanted to read.”
