Matt Wayne wrote a tribute to Dwayne McDuffie. The publishers asked him to chnge it for publication, and he pulled out. This is the tribute, juxtaposed with a heart rending coic also by Wayne.</p>
I first read McDuffie's work through his Justice League series, where I liked his work but not the edicts handed down to him from editorial, where I learned what it does to a book when editorially dictated long plots interfere with the action-and-dialogue writer.Then I discoveredd his connection to the DCAU and his name kept coming up in discussions.
I'm still in denial that he's gone.
