DC’s Milestone Initiative graduates are already working on their dream titles

The inaugural class of DC’s Milestone Initiative Talent Development Program has officially graduated, and several of its members are already doing work for DC.

The Milestone Initiative program aims to “identify, educate, spotlight, and empower” the next generation of Black and diverse creators in the comic book industry. It’s a collaboration between DC, parent company WarnerMedia, Milestone Media, and Ally, a digital financial services company.

Inaugural participants were announced in March before they attended a one-week in-person training summit at DC’s Burbank, California offices, and then completed an eight-week virtual course with the Kubert School. And for graduates Lucas Silveira, Julio Anta, and Atagun Ilhan, as well as others, the Milestone Initiative has led to immediate work at DC.
