The original forum where Dwayne McDuffie would answer fan questions. No longer open to new posts.
i must say that its really odd that dwayne has died i mean he had so much happening, he wasnt ready to pass away
ben 10 ultimate alien (brand new series just started and its not over but its been said that all ultimate alien epsiodes have been completed i think of the top of my mind dwayne said that)
static shock toys dwayne just mentioned his new toy line for static that was coming out
and all star superman just got released
his missing out on so much now and i find it way unfair
but im thinking now maybe dwayne knew about this maybe he wasnt feeling well or he was told that he hasnt got long to life i donno it just seems odd to me and reading over this makes me sound kinda crazy oh well its my opinion
oh my god, i came back here as soon as i heard... i still can't believe it...
the day he died is the day I first watched Justice League Crisis on Two Earths... I was so praising that movie but then I didn't know...
I just cant...
It's great to see you again, John Cage, even under these circumstances. You might remember me as Fone Bone from Toon Zone. Dwayne was one of a kind and the best writer of cartoons ever. He was always quick to let me know when I was being a Bonehead and that just made me appreciate him all the more. RIP Dwayne.
This is indeed a sad day.
Dwayne McDuffie had an EXPERT talent at writing comics and shows. What made him stand out more to me than any other writer was his TALENT/INTELLIGENCE in making EVERY SINGLE character in his stories seem relevant and able to contribute. For example, most writers of JLA would have the story focus on the big 3 (superman, batman, wonder woman) and other the characters would only seem to be "in the way" or just filler. In DM's stories, he made you seem to respect all characters.
His Milestone line introduced me to comics, and I came back to comics during his Static Shock TV show years later....
It's quite sad, but I will always have happy thoughts of his books, shows and movies.
When I found out I watched the first Alien Force episode
“Thanks for watching and reading, and stick around, the best is yet to come.”~Dwayne McDuffie
Wow....when I read that he had passed, I was DUMBFOUNDED and so, I have a memory of Dwayne that I want to share:
It was 20007, and we were living in NC., (Where my family is from) I'm from N.C.. I used to watch Justice League with my daughters all the time. They were pretty young and they still enjoyed spending time with Daddy, and we ALL loved cartoons (althought THEIR faves were decidedly more "lil girlish" with singing and such), so it made for good bonding times.
One day, as we sat watching the credits after one particular episode, one of my daughters said "Hey Dad...he's got the same last name as us. Maybe you should call him and see if we're related." (Little girls seem to always think that their fathers can do almost anything, so they actually believed I could reach him). I told them that I would contact him (just for giggles). Anyway, a day or two went by and I had forgotten to reach out until my oldest daughter reminded me of my promise, so I sat down at my computer, found an e-mail address for Mr. McDuffie, and fired away...NEVER, EVER, EVER expecting a response. I have to say, that I was highly surprised when, a few days later, I got one. And it wasn't a canned, automated response. He actually took the time to write us back. It was really short, but it meant a lot to my girls to see it. It simply said:
"My Dad's from Aiken SC. We might be related, as I was invited to a family reunion in NC last year. Anyway, thanks for the kind words!"
I know it wasn't much, but he gained two lifelong fans that day that thoroughly enjoyed watching "The show that "cousin Dwayne" worked on" from then on.
Just thought I'd share.
