John Rozum annotates Xombi and Static villains

As the current, primary custodian of the Milestone Universe, this has to be a bittersweet time for John Rozum. On the bitter side, it’s disappointing to have to say good-bye to Xombi, both for Rozum and his readers. It was a well-loved series and, like the first volume, done too soon. But on his blog Rozum mentions a couple of things that make the cancellation easier to swallow. First, there’s a collection of all six issues coming, but Rozum’s also announced that in November he’ll start a series of annotation posts “giving some behind the scenes looks at what inspired … the material, what references there might be, and some other general process stuff that I think won’t take away from the reading experience.” And just to make sure he doesn’t miss anything, he’s also taking reader questions.

But as we say good-bye to Xombi, Rozum’s also looking forward to the release of Static Shock. He’s been posting a series of villain peeks and promises something Static-related every day between now and the Sept. 7 debut. If you’re a Milestone fan, Rozum’s blog is the place to be right now.
