Comic writer and animation producer, Dwayne McDuffie passed away from complications due to a surgical procedure on Feb 22, 2010. (source)
I first started following his blog and twitter during the height of my Ben 10 phase, later learning he was also behind Justice League, Justice League Unlimited and other DC animated features.
I leave you now with my favourite scene from one of my favourite Justice League Unlimited episodes produced by McDuffie, “The Ties That Bind“.
Rest in peace, Mr. McDuffie. Thanks for all DCAU and Ben 10 awesomeness.
