Dwayne McDuffie, writer and publisher of comics and graphic novels representing persons of color, died after complications from heart surgery.

McDuffie's work for Marvel’s new Deathlok series (1990-1992) is incredible, articulating a vision of race-inflected networked consciousness and media shift. McDuffie and I had a brief exchange after he encountered my early academic work, and I sincerely wish that exchange had been longer.

McDuffie’s work is inspiring and amazing, and we are much poorer for his passing.
