This is a story that I have been pointing out to friends for a while, and I want to get it out of my backlogged links topics. Dwayne McDuffie is the founder of Milestone Media, a black owned comics company (of which now the assets are owned by DC comics)*. Through them, he has published a number of titles which feature blacks as the main and major characters. Now he also writes episodes for Teen Titans and Justice League (and Unlimited), and a number of other cartoons, (he is also the story editor for Justice League Unlimited). But back then, when he wrote "Icon" he had a very big and influential fan in Clarence Thomas. How big?
"He quotes Icon in papers and speeches. Rather, since you write those lines, he quotes you."

Wow. In light of that article, I really wonder if anyone sent Clarence a copy of the revamped (and gay) version of his childhood hero, the Rawhide Kid?

And don't forget Static Shock in the list of DMcD 'toons!

How weird! I just followed a link from a post you left on TV Barn, and the first thing I see is my name at the top of the page! Just wanted to clarify, Milestone's assets are all owned by Milestone. DC Comics has a sweetheart licensing deal that keeps us from doing a lot of stuff we want to with the characters but they don't own anything of Milestone's. They don't even have a stake in the company.

Best,

Dwayne McDuffie
