Ten random things: February 22

Ten comics written by Dwayne McDuffie:
  1. Iron Man Annual #11 (Marvel Comics, 1990)
  2. Deathlok #1-4 (Marvel Comics, July 1990-October 1990) - (limited series)
  3. Shadow Cabinet #0 (DC Comics [Milestone], January 1994) - (co-writer)
  4. Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight #156-158 (DC Comics, August 2002-October 2002)
  5. St. George #8 (Marvel Comics [Epic], August 1989)
  6. Impulse #60 (DC Comics, May 2000)
  7. Deathlok (vol. 2) #11-16, annual #1 (Marvel Comics, May 1992-October 1992)
  8. "Cupid's Error." Marvel Super-Heroes (vol. 3) #12 (Marvel Comics, January 1993) - (Falcon story; co-writer)
  9. "Never Say Die." Batman: Gotham Knights #27 (DC Comics, May 2002)
  10. The Sensational She-Hulk in Ceremony #1-2 (Marvel Comics, 1989) - (limited series)

I found this waiting for me in my Twitter timeline when I got home from work this evening:

C2E2 has been kind enough to offer a memorial panel for #DwayneMcDuffie as well. Details to follow.

In case you were wondering, this is not a pleasant way to learn of an unexpected death.

McDuffie's death is tragic on several levels. For one thing, he was only 49 years old and, so far as I knew, in good health. Also, he was an extremely talented writer, one whose work I've admired for quite some time. I loved the titles he created and wrote for Milestone Media in the early 90s; more recently, he was the guiding force behind two of my favorite animated series, Static Shock and Justice League Unlimited. But worst of all from my perspective is that he was married to a friend of mine. As bad as I feel about losing a very talented man at such a young age, knowing how this must be affecting her makes it infinitely worse.
