Yesterday, comics site CBR broke the news that animation/comics veteran Dwayne McDuffie had passed away on Monday. At 49 years of age, McDuffie had become a well-regarded writer in both animation and in comics — he was the screenwriter for the recently released All-Star Superman DVD, and was a writer/producer on several of the Ben 10 and Justice League animated series. He also co-created the comics character Static, which later ran as the four-year animated series Static Shock!. For more, visit CBR.
