R.I.P. DWAYNE MCDUFFIE

Sadly, hours after I published a review of the All-Star Superman DVD, it’s writer Dwayne McDuffie passed away. McDuffie was a respected and pioneering Black comic writer, who created an all-African American superhero line in 1993 called Milestone Comics, and was the chief writer/editor for the Justice League Unlimited cartoon. He also created the popular young black superhero Static, and had popular runs on Marvel and DC comics such as Deathlok, Justice League of America and The Fantastic Four. The cause of his death is still unknown at this time.

About Jeff Carter

Jeff began his path towards Geek destiny at the age of four, at a drive-in screening of Star Wars. Since then, he's had a love affair with all things nerdy. In the mid to late 90's, Jeff was a staff writer for EchoStation.Com, interviewing Star Wars heavyweights like Timothy Zahn and Drew Struzan. He then went on to review films and write editorial pieces for several blogs in the mid 2000's, wrote and co-created a webcomic strip that ran from 2007-2010, and is currently co-founder of Dead Henchmen Productions, an independent film company based in New England.
