It's been almost ten years since Static Shock had a book of his own, but that'll change this spring when writer Felicia Henderson and artists Scott McDaniel and Jonathan Glapion bring Virgil Hawkins back for a new ongoing series! We asked writer Felicia Henderson to tell us a bit about what it’s like to be bringing the character back:
If we've learned anything from Paul Cornell and Scott McDaniel's Batman and Robin issues, it's that The Absence isn't quite all there up in her noggin, and I'm not just talking about the giant hole in her head. The lady's scary-crazy. You might've also learned just how well Paul Cornell can write a cool villain -- if you're a Batman fan who hasn't yet checked out his killer Lex Luthor stories occurring in ACTION COMICS, you're missing out.
