Veteran comics writer James Hudnall, writer of Harsh Realm, ESPers, The Psycho and currently Blue Cat in Aces Weekly, has fallen on some difficult times and will lose a foot to a diabetic ulcer. I have no idea if Hudnall is insured or not, but he’s sure to lose a few weeks of work and has set up a fund called Get James Hudnall Back on His Foot to help him over this period. He had recently moved to Austin and was not prepared for this financially.
Best wishes to Hudnall for a swift recovery.
