    Having done a piece on McDuffie myself, I really wish I had seen your posting 1st. I think it would have given me a little bit better insight from which 2 tackle this subject matter of his passing.

    This man is so interesting 2 listen 2. When I get another modem (where I don’t have 2 reboot evry two minutes) I’m gonna check out 4 more video footage of this creator.

    I remember having heard that there were some rumblings that had gone on between him and DC management that caused 4 their 2 be a drop in quality of some of the JLA books. How much of that is true, I really don’t know, but I remember being jazzed that he was bringing back some of the Milestone characters, only 2 be let down when something that was looking promising turned in2 a farce. It starded out well enough, then ChrisCross (one of my fave artists) did a fill-in and turned in “my opinion” one of his worst artistic performances ever. Then some guy I never heard of did a fill in and 4 me hands down…was the single worst atristic job I’d ever seen published by a proffessional company, and the stories suffered 4 it. Dc owed it 2 the JLA fans 2 give them better product than that, DC in my opinion deserved 2 traet Dwayne better by having an artist(s) that could compliment his stories, and fans of any ethnicity deserved 2 see the Milestone characters return w/ a spotlight that would show hoe deservivng they would be….being folded into the DC mainstream as opposed 2 getting what was at best a haphazard, half hearted near bungling of bringing these characters back.
    Thx ED 4 providing this clip on your blog, it truly makes me wonder of what could have been.

      Thanks for your continued support! Yeah, I have to admit I didn’t finish that arc or buy the introduction of Milestone to the DC “companion” comic cuz it was obviously rushed and lackluster. I was like if they’re going to just half ass it, what’s the point?
