AICN says:

Harry, the great writer Dwayne McDuffie has passed on. You may use this obit I have written:

Dwayne McDuffie, the writer of the All-Star Superman animated adaptation and some of the greatest episodes of the Justice League Animated Series, has died. He is a giant of superhero animation and a highly respected comic book writer, having written iconic characters at both DC and Marvel, including Superman, Justice League of America, and Fantastic Four. McDuffie is the creator of the Milestone imprint which was published by DC in the 1990s. Perhaps you know Milestone's most famous character, Static, who McDuffie brought to Warner Bros. animation in the popular animated superhero show, Static Shock.

Mr. McDuffie is a legend. His writing for the Justice League animated series shall forever endure, inspiring generation upon generation. How bittersweet that Mr. McDuffie's death coincided with the release of All-Star Superman, which has been lauded by numerous critics...

This is too bad. He looks so young to be gone already. I've heard incredible things about this movie and am now looking to get it.

The articles on google say he was 49 years old. Not exactly young but much too soon to die.

Dude - in this day and age 49 is still quite young. When you get a little closer to that landmark, you'll be singing a different tune. Trust me. I'm 32 and 49 doesn't seem all that far off.

My dad tells me all the time he still feels like hes 15 and he's 52. I'm 20 and I feel like I'm still in middle school haha. Growing older sucks =/

You'll see my friend. I still feel like I'm in my early 20s and sometimes need to be reminded about this harsh reality.

-MD-3987d ago

I catch myself sometimes doing things that I used to when I was younger and I'll say to myself "wait I can't really do that anymore".

I probably won't even consider myself a full blown adult until I'm like 30.

Wow....might have to go pick up the movie just for him then. I was a huge fan of his Justice League episodes.
