NEW VOICES. NEW VISIONARIES. IT’S TIME TO WRITE A NEW CHAPTER IN THE SUPERHERO STORY.

If stories are what shape the world we live in, then the storytellers should reflect that world. The Milestone Initiative is looking for the next generation of Black and diverse comic book creators.

DC Milestone Initiative Development Program

WarnerMedia Access, DC and Milestone Media, in collaboration with Ally, have launched The Milestone Initiative.  Inspired by the relaunch of DC’s Milestone Comics, The Milestone Initiative is a broad, ongoing initiative to identify, support, and elevate emerging Black and other under-represented creators within the comic book industry. 

At the Initiative’s core is The Milestone Summit, a week-long education program at which the participants selected for the program will receive a course in everything it takes to build a career in this industry, including portfolio building, business and financial literacy, and other key skills, all while completing their first professional assignment and networking with industry insiders. After finishing the week-long program, they’ll continue their development in an eight-week virtual, class-based learning environment (convening once per week) with top comic book educators, followed by ongoing, one-on-one mentorship throughout the year.

PROGRAM CRITERIA

The Milestone Initiative is open to Black and other underrepresented creators from the US and Canada who are ready to enter the comic book industry at a professional level. You’ve got the talent, you’ve put in the hours of practice, and this is the opening you’ve been waiting for.

Think you have what it takes? Get ready to dive into the application.

You have a story to tell. We want to hear it.
