Comic Great Dwayne McDuffie Has Died

One of the good guys has passed. Read his Swiftian proposal for a ‘black guy on a skateboard’ comic TEENAGE NEGRO NINJA THRASHERS.

On that same day comes word that Dwayne passed away. Details remain unknown at this time, but it’s a major loss to both the fan and creative communities. It’s also a huge shock - Dwayne was young and seemingly healthy, and his career was in a great place.

Here’s a memo that McDuffie wrote at Marvel way back in the 90s. I think it sums up a lot of the frustration that led to the creation of Milestone; I also think it shows his excellent sense of humor.
