Static, currently appearing in TEEN TITANS, is back in this new collection of classic stories from his hit Milestone series!

When a mutagenic gas accidentally gave him superhuman abilities, Virgil Hawkins was reborn as Static, the electrically powered teen Super Hero. And while Static tries to balance the pressures of his school work, after-school job and family life, he also protects his inner city neighborhood against villains including Holocaust and Commando X. Collecting STATIC #1-4 and STATIC SHOCK!: REBIRTH OF THE COOL #1-4.

Written by Dwayne McDuffie and Robert L. Washington III; Art by John Paul Leon and Steve Mitchell; Cover by John Paul Leon

I think this would be a great way to read about Static's background and origins, as well as catch up on some of his earlier stories and villains, especially now that he's appearing in Teen Titans.

I already have all the issues of the original series and am not about to buy a new trade for just 4 issues.

So...not me.

Yeah, the dude's art gives off a nice indie-style visual.
