From Dwayne McDuffie’s family-

Dwayne’s family would like to publicly thank DC Comics for their plans to publish a special homage issue to Dwayne – STATIC SHOCK SPECIAL. Not only is it a kind gesture, but we feel it is a fitting tribute to Dwayne’s memory and his legacy.

While some have questioned DC’s motives or actions, Dwayne’s family does not share those sentiments.

Dwayne’s family supports the project.

We want to thank Dwayne’s friends who are contributing their skills to the project, Dwayne’s fans for their support over the years, and the editors and management at DC Comics. Dwayne was extremely proud of the Milestone line. We look forward to the comic and many more DC Comics featuring the Milestone characters.

*****

From Derek T. Dingle-

As President of Milestone Media, I thank DC Comics for initiating the development of Static Shock Special #1 to recognize and celebrate the extraordinary work of Dwayne McDuffie. We are honored to have the assemblage of so many creators and colleagues that he worked with and, in some cases, mentored, to serve as contributors. We look forward to the release of Static Shock Special #1 and our ongoing relationship with DC Comics with the creation of future titles featuring the Milestone characters.
