‘Tis The Season To Be Generous

Here are three different comics community-related targets for your kind hearts this holiday season, if you're so inclined. I hope you'll join me in considering a small donation to or purchase from all three of the following:

* a fund to aid blogger and comics retail employee Carla Hoffman and her husband Lance has now been set up. Details here. Carla and Lance were caught by a fire while moving from home to car during recent infernos in southern California. They are expected to recover, but are I believe still in the hospital and certainly lost all of their worldly goods.

* the underground comics legend S. Clay Wilson, who is on the road to recovery after suffering a severe brain injury and almost dying in the streets of San Francisco, now has a fund set up on his behalf through a former publisher. Details here. As a long-time, self-employed artist, Wilson's medical bills and ability to make ends meet will likely provide additional challenges in addition to the medical ones he faces.

* illustrator Rich Faber's wife Traci has been diagnosed with cancer, and Faber wants to sell some of his art in order to better afford the coming onslaught of expenses. Details here.
