Dwayne

I literally just heard minutes ago. I am beyond words. Be back when I canů

Blaine:

I am beyond words.

We all are, we all are.

Kwame:

He was one of my heroes. I grew up on his work. It still feels surreal.

It seems like yesterday that he was schooling me about something or another on his blog. Priest once said Dwayne was the smartest guy he knew. He was the smartest guy most people knew. As a friend of mine pointed out, he had to be a genuinely nice dude, because he was nice on-line and most people get LESS nice online.

I only internet knew The Maestro and it's been a good year since I'd had any communication with him even on that level. But he'll definitely be missed.

And by "blog" I mean "forum."

Its such as you learn my thoughts! You appear to understand a lot approximately this, such as you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few % to power the message house a bit, however instead of that, that is excellent blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be back.

Thad:

Condolences to you and all who knew him. We've lost a true talent.

JLU was a show that made me a kid again -- I was in college, living in dorms, for most of its run; my friends and I were people who'd grown up watching Batman and were thrilled to see that universe not only still going but still breaking new ground, still doing things we'd never seen before. Getting a group together to watch Justice League cartoons may not be a typical college student's Saturday night, but it was ours.

I never knew the guy -- never even "Internet knew", as G Edward Jones put it -- but I knew his work, and I'd buy anything with his name on it.

And under the circumstances, Priest, let me just say how much your work's meant to me too -- you've got a similar talent for rich and complicated stories that feel real both in their settings and in their characterization. And you've always struck me as just such a nice guy, too.

Anyhow. Just felt like one of those moments I should offer my compliments since this occasion reminds us that you don't always get the chance to.
