Axe Cop. Comic Creator Dwayne McDuffie Passes Away. Tragic news today, as Comic Book Resources has learned that comic book creator Dwayne McDuffie, best known as co-creator of the DC Comics imprint Milestone Media, passed away unexpectedly due to complications during surgery Monday night.
McDuffie was only in his early 50s at the time of his death.

While there, McDuffie wrote the long-running series "Static," a character brought over to his own animated series "Static Shock" in 2000. McDuffie spent most of the next ten years actively involved in the world of animation, mostly for the DCU animated shows "Justice League" and "Justice League Unlimited.
