STATIC SHOCK'S NEW LOOK

Courtesy Comics Continuum:

Kids' WB! has provided The Continuum with a first look at Static's new costume for the upcoming third season of Static Shock.

"The third season is going to look a little different," said Denys Cowan, who is a producer this season. "And the biggest thing is that Static will have a costume change. We felt we needed to make more it toward the feel of the comic book, but kept the flavor of the first two seasons."

Appearing at the recent Comic-Con International in San Diego, Cowan said that the first re-design for Static didn't make it to the show. It was tested for a group of boys and girls, who didn't like it.

"They just gave me a blank stare," Cowan said, laughing. "So we decided to go back to the drawing board and back to the basics."

The third season of Static Shock won't begin on Sept. 14 when Kids' WB! kicks off the new season because the show was a late pick-up. According to a network representative, the new season of Static Shock is expected to begin in either November or January.
