As reported earlier today by CBR News, comic writer, animation producer and respected industry veteran Dwayne McDuffie passed away due to complications following a surgical procedure he underwent Monday evening.

The Detroit native began his career as an editor for Marvel comics in the late '80s, but left the editorial ranks to pursue writing full-time. McDuffie was a longtime advocate for diversity in comics and this led to his co-founding Milestone Media, a character and diversity-driven superhero line of comics, along with Denys Cowan, Michael Davis and Derek T. Dingle. McDuffie's more recent work saw him splitting time between comics and animation, where he wrote or produced such series as "Justice League Unlimited" and "Ben 10," as well as a number of DC's recent direct-to-DVD animated films including the just-released "All-Star Superman."

CBR reached out to a number of McDuffie's friends and colleagues who have kindly allowed us to share their thoughts about McDuffie and his passing.

STORYMARK


This is too bad. MCDuffie was a good guy. Watched All-Star Superman last night. The bittersweet nature of the story was really punctuated by this.

"I thoroughly disapprove of duels. If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand and lead him to a quiet place and kill him."
