I'm Interviewed in Publisher's Weekly

Detroit native Dwayne McDuffie’s 20-plus years in the writing business have taken him to every corner of the comics universe and beyond. Among other characters, the acclaimed writer has written Batman and Deathlok for DC Comics and Marvel. McDuffie (along with Michael Davis, Denys Cowan and Derek Dingle) was also cocreator of Milestone Media, the most successful black-owned comic company. Static Shock—a highly successful cartoon version of Milestone hero Static—led McDuffie to an equally stellar career in animation, including a stint as a producer on the Cartoon Network’s Justice League and Justice League Unlimited series. The release of the multiplatform Justice League Heroes game soon followed in late 2006, representing McDuffie’s first script work for the videogame industry. Now, McDuffie’s come back to monthly comics with gigs on DC’s Fantastic Four and the last issues of Firestorm for Marvel. PWCW talked to McDuffie about his television highlights, comic book triumphs and video game adventures.
