Dwayne McDuffie, the Emmy Award-winning writer of comics and animated TV shows such as Ben Ten: Alien Force and Static Shock, died this year at the young age of 49. His many fans and admirers continue to appreciate and enjoy the legacy he left behind by visiting his website, reading his old colunms, and staying active on the message boards forums.

Well, fans of McDuffie's work should know that a new website, DwayneMcDuffie.com, has been launched in an effort to carry on his remarkable leagacy.

Eugene Son, a close friend of McDuffie's, provided an introductory post to the website this week, writing:

In the next few months, there will be changes as the website shifts from one that promoted his work to one that reflects his immense legacy. On this blog, the plan is to post things that he wrote, including his old columns and scripts, and get his friends and colleagues to write their stories and tributes about Dwayne McDuffie. A few of us have great stories that Dwayne shared with us that we want to share with you.

The message board forums will remain. Over the years, Dwayne liked to interact with his fans there. Even now there’s a small but active community of Ben 10 fans there. And for legacy purposes, we’ve kept his original website much the way he left it.

I think it's a great thing that's being done to keep McDuffie's spirit with us and help build upon his legacy. Hopefully, Dwayne McDuffie's life, and all his many accomplishments, will inspire following generations of artists to follow their dreams and, possibly, leave their own mark in the comic world.

    I was blessed to edit Dwayne's column "To Be Continued" for Psycomic.com when I worked for USA Networks.

    He managed to leave behind a great legacy of original creations like Static, but also made his mark at Marvel and DC. He went to the same high school as my sisters in Detroit. I'll miss him dearly but am better for having known him. And the world is better with his creations in them.

    This man was my hero when he passed I cried like my Daddy died. I'm happy that someone will pay him homage. As his death wasn't mentioned at any Comic Conventions or on most sites of the companies he worked for.

    Good to know a new website was launched to keep his fans happy. Dwayne was a great writer and I continue to both read and watch his work. I'm also looking forward to Justice League: Doom, the last film he wrote before his death.

    That's nice. I was saddened to hear of his passing. I had a shorty email dialogue with him a few years ago. He seemed like a cool guy.
