A Facebook campaign is seeking recognition for late writer Dwayne McDuffie, specifically in the form of the Animation Writer’s Caucus Lifetime Achievement Award.
According to a message from McDuffie’s wife Charlotte posted on the Facebook group, he can be added to consideration via a “groundswell” of write-in votes from Writers Guild of America Animation Writers Caucus members. If you are a member — or know one — and are interested, more information is here.
McDuffie worked in comics and animation during his noted career, penning Fantastic Four, Justice League of America, Damage Control and more in print, and much of the Justice League and Static Shock animated series on TV. McDuffie also scripted several of the DC Animated direct-to-DVD features, including this year’s All-Star Superman and the upcoming Justice League Doom. He passed away in February of this year.
