R.I.P., Dwayne McDuffie

Dwayne McDuffie passed away today.

I had the pleasure of meeting him at a convention not long after the creation of Milestone Media, an imprint within DC Comics, of which he was a founder. Dwayne was taller than I was, and I found his facial foliage impressive at the time.

I remember his initial disappointment at my preference to Blood Syndicate over Icon, the title he wrote…but once I mentioned my love of Mark Bright’s artwork, we engaged in some light banter about the comics industry, and all was well with the world.

I remember reading in Dwayne’s Bullpen Pro-File that his greatest unfulfilled dream (at the time of it’s writing) was to write the Fantastic Four. Well, buddy, you did just that, and you did a swell job.
