Alpha Flight And Strikeforce Morituri Writer James Hudnall Needs Our Help
One of the first professionals I ever met when I became a writer was James Hudnall. It was at a tiny convention in Pomona, CA that could easily have passed for a ghost town. James and I talked quiet a bit and he gave me a lot of pointers. They have all found their way into my writing. Later, when I started publishing and sent him the comics I did, he took the time to teach be about the importance of lettering… a lesson that I've passed on to other letterers over the years. His guidance and friendship helped me immensely.
James work includes ESPers, Strikeforce Morituri, Alpha Flight, Harsh Realms, Hard Case and Lex Luthor: The Unauthorized Biography.
A few years back, James had some severe medical issues. He had to have his leg amputated from below the knee. The surgery was successful, and a GoFundMe was started to help with his bills while he went through rehab. James was able to move back to San Diego and has been sharing a place with a roommate. But that roommate is moving north for work and James is unemployed at the moment with only disability to get him by. He can't afford the apartment on his own and has to move in the next few weeks. The problem is finding a place that he can afford that is also handicapped accessible and meets his needs.
A GoFundMe has been started to help raise money to get him into a new place… rent and moving expenses. We here at Bleeding Cool wish James the best and hope he is back working again very soon.
