    Say what you want, Dwayne can’t argue and I won’t.

      I think it’s only fair I mention I’ve met Michael Davis.

      I’ve never posted on any site. My son was in Mr. Davis’ Bad mentor program when it was in New York. One night Mr. Davis drove my son home which took 2 hours. My son is now an established chef, helped in great part by Mr. Davis.

      I’ve read a great deal of Mr.Davis’ articles and have for over two decades. When driven from Milestone Comics he publicly supported the company. When Milestone, without a word, did the same thing in 2016 he did the same.

      He’s knocked away racist allegations against the head of DC Comics Paul Lewis and yourself. I strongly disagree with his example about you in this article.

      He replied to you with dignity. There’s a column (for the life of me I can’t remember the title of) where Mr. Davis destroyed the argument of a critic so soundly I could not imagine how the critic would respond. To this day there has been none that I’m aware of.

      I attended his mother’s funeral. His love for his mother is beyond measure. He spoke about why he created Static Shock’s world as something his mother could look at and see her murdered daughter Sharon represented. Also at the funeral was Derek Dingle who told Mr. Davis Milestone was family. That “family” stabbed Mr. Davis in the back. Yet he still supports them.

      What you’re doing is placing doubt on his word and legacy.

      Jean, Sharon, Robert were the name of his mother, sister and father. And they’re also the name of Static’s family. That’s no coincidence. You can take a look at Mr. Davis’ behavior regarding the treatment he’s been afforded, the continued support of Milestone.

      Finally, my son is also represented in the Static Shock bible. Complete with a likeness drawn by Mr. Cohen. With much respect to Mr. McDuffie it’s clear you’re mistaken and very lucky Mr. Davis respects you enough not to take you to task over this.

      • If not for the ‘chef’ part I’d never have picked up who were. Thanks for the kind words. BTW-it’s BAD BOY STUDIO not Bad. Although now I’m thinking…

  2. Matt, here’s a hard truth. You’re right, Dwayne can’t argue, nor do I want to. The moment I pressed send and sent the article to Comicmix I felt sick doing so. The example I used was harsh.

    Harsh but true. NO doubt that you believe Dwayne was the leading voice behind Static.

    That is not true.

    You look out for your boy, nothing but respect for that.

    I have no beef with you or Charlotte. But since no one is looking out for me, I will.
