Dwayne McDuffie will be missed. I am shocked and saddened by this news. I was just watching All Star Superman last night. Once again it featured a fantastic script. His work on the animated features has just been stellar. They have been some of the most exciting animated features because he truly understood the motivations of the original stories and the characters. The dialogue was spot on.
Dwayne McDuffie’s Justice League run was really terrific. I admit that I didn’t read Milestone when it was out but as he was introducing the characters into the Justice League, I was really gaining interest in them. I have picked up the recently released collections and plan to continue to pursue some of the foundation work. It’s clear I missed out on something exciting the first time around.
It’s a sad loss for the comic industry.
