Well I just found out and it makes me very very sad indeed. I've said it before and will again, his work on JLU made me a comic fan because before I had no interest. During the run of the show we would weekly assemble on his site and discuss the episode and he would answer or evade :) our questions of what was coming next. I always hoped he do one more JLU dvd...This is very sad to me :'(

This brother was a real life super hero.  There are some folks that just ascend to greatness, and although I never met the man, it seemed so effortless.
Free your mind, and your ass will follow.

When I look at that photo with Dwayne at the premiere looking healthy and vibrant in front of a ALL STAR SUPERMAN poster I can't believe he would be gone mere hours later.

He inspired so many people that I'm sure one of them will pick up his mantle and run with it.

It seems so unreal. My thoughts go to his family and love ones.

I saw where Gail Simone said some great things about Mr McDuffie on her twitter page I wonder of we could gather the comments by his peers some place?

the newly released Static Shock Special by DC comics has a great tribute to Dwayne McDuffie inside it's pages and is really what makes the comic worth your $2.99. as the plot of the story is touching but ultimately not really memorable. In the tribute, McDuffie is seen in a comic shop along with the characters Static and Rocket, the following is how some of the dialog is presented...

Static: You know everyone loves you now. Your obituary got a quarter page in the time, more in the LA Times. They even ran something about your passing in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. No joke, I googled it. My point is....everybody loves you now, because you're no longer a threat. Folks who ignored and belittled your work in life are anoinitng you in death.

Rocket: It's like Dr. King

Static: I was going ro Philip K, Dick but the same principle applies. Just when the fans had figured out you were deep, too. I mean, the giant subway token in John Tower's trophy room? Too subtle? Wow

Rocket: Worst of all, people who despised you now get to tell your story. They'll add and subtract stuff to suit their purposes. Nothing we can do about it.

Static: That's just what happens to legends. You're one of us now.

Rocket: Yeah, welcome to Dakota

Know what disgusts me and why I hate Dc and their fans? Mr McD had the audacity to actually treat minority and women characters with respect and he had an 'agenda' but Geoff Johns gets to drag the whole DCU back to the bad old Jim Crow days.

Because that is who they "grew up with" I find that utter bullsh*t if you ask me.
With these choices, I felt that the American black man only needed to choose which one to get eaten by; the liberal fox or the conservative wolf because both of them will eat him.
