Static creator, Justice League story editor, and one of the key contributors to the DCAU, Dwayne McDuffie, passed away earlier today. The CBR story is here; Dan DiDio, co-publisher of DC Entertainment, gives the company’s thoughts here. Given the breadth and scope of his work and influence on both comics and animation, I expect you’ll see more tributes go up throughout the day.
What makes it even worse is what I imagine will be Dwayne’s final project, All-Star Superman, hits stores today.
I’ll probably have more thoughts when I can come up with something more articulate.

DVD: Full episodes are available to U.S. viewers on the Cartoon Network website.
Summary: After a disappointing first day in the Hall of Justice, Robin, Kid Flash and Aqualad investigate a situation at Cadmus Labs that rapidly spirals out of control.
Notes: I know the blog’s been dormant for most of the year, but I couldn’t resist this, could I? Turns out that my new practice doesn’t leave me as much time for writing that I can’t bill a client for… but with the holidays coming, let’s see how things work out. Expect this to be the most timely entry for this show, however – I at least want to finish off season two of Justice League first, which will give Young Justice some time to find its sea legs.
These have hit the web over the last 48 hours, but in case you haven’t seen them, take a look….
