All that needs to be said
So, this is my small little tribute to the loss of both Joanne Siegel (wife of Superman co-Creator Jerry) and Dwayne McDuffie (great writer person and generally awesome human being). If I might wax a bit philosophical, it's interesting that these two represent, in large respect, the Never-Ending Battle for Truth, Justice and the American Way. Whether it was Joanne, fighting for continued creators' rights in the comics field, or McDuffie's passionate struggle to bring social justice, diversity, and awareness to a medium that is too often and too easily increasingly whitewashed, we lost two great examples of what human beings aspire to.
And that's the real loss to us. My deepest sympathies to their friends and families, whom have lost so much more.
A final note, I realize I haven't been around much. I'm going to try to find some time in the next couple weeks here to get some more posters made, some more blogposts up, and to change up the links in my sidebar and update some of that stuff. So until then, apologies and my asking for patience.
