Sunday Links for Feb. 27

This past week was filled with sadness at the news of the sudden passing of Dwayne McDuffie. There have been some touching remembrances of him from many places including The New York Times, Comic Book Resources, The Beat, Bleeding Cool, The Nerdy Bird and iFanboy. As a huge fan of Static Shock cartoon, I am saddened by this news. I wish I had gotten a chance to meet him and thank him for such a great superhero. Our condolences to his family.

DC has a lot going on this week. There are rumors that they are canceling the First Wave line completely for poor sales. If this is true, this is the second major DC cancellation this month. Robot 6 is speculating that they are looking to grow their stable of artists in hopes of growing their big name talent.

The Eisner Hall of Fame inductees were announced this week, with the surprise of four inductees rather than the standard two. The inductees picked from four areas of the industry to insure that people weren't being overlooked for their significant contributions. The inductees are Ernie Bushmiller, Jack Jackson (Jaxon), Marty Nodell, and Lynd Ward. Congratulations to all of the inductees!

In movie news this week, IDW's Zombies vs. Robots has been optioned by Sony Pictures, with Michael Bay attached. In other movie news, you can read why I am so excited about the new Superman movie.
