Just a heads up that while at Staple! in Austin, Clay Dugger over at The Con Cast interviewed me for his podcast. I give a little info about what I’ve been up to and how that is going. (The condensed version is I’m continuing to work hard at the long form piece about indie comics, hence being at Staple!)

Recently he suffered complication from the disease and his foot was amputated below the knee. He’s having trouble covering his medical bills to get a prosthetic foot. You can help by donating to a fundraiser organized by his friend Cully Hamner. This is a good cause for someone in need of our help. If you can throw a few dollars his way it would go a long way. If not please take a minute to share with your rich friends.
