Episode #59 – Spotlight: Dwayne McDuffie

Dwayne McDuffie is one of the most important creators in the modern era of comics. Probably best known, and most importantly, as the co-founder and one of the architects of Milestone Media, a comic book company focused on better representing minorities in comics. There he would create or co-create titles such as Static, Icon, Blood Syndicate, and Hardware.  Elsewhere, his work includes seminal runs on Fantastic Four, Deathlok, Firestorm and creator of the abundantly clever Marvel Comics series Damage Control. In addition to his work in comics McDuffie was a prolific writer, story editor, and producer of fantastic animated programming including Ben 10 Alien Force, Static Shock, Justice League, and Justice League Unlimited.  The panel is honored to shine the spotlight on the one and only Dwayne McDuffie.
