On February 21, 2011, the world lost a legend. Dwayne McDuffie passed away at the age of 49, leaving behind a towering legacy in comics and television. McDuffie was one of the founding fathers of Milestone Media, a prominent writer for DC Comics, and the brains behind DC TV Classics like Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, and Static Shock. His influence on comics and superhero storytelling reverberate to this day. One writer who was inspired by McDuffie is David F. Walker, currently writing Occupy Avengers for Marvel and has previously written Cyborg for DC. David joins Keith and Desiree (Britney is out this week) to remember the life and times of Dwayne McDuffie.

One thought on “DCTV Classics Remembers Dwayne McDuffie”
Many years ago a lot of comics pros used to post on the rec.arts.comics newsgroups. Dwayne was one of these and he seemed like a cool guy. I remember suggesting once that if he ever got to write the Black Knight he should have him refer to his mystic sword at some point as his “eldritch cleaver”. Dwayne loved this, said he would definitely be using the line if he ever did. Never got to write the Black Knight, alas, but he left us a body of great comics work.
