A Friend In Need

So a week or so ago, I posted about Chris Pramas and his impending neck surgery and the troubles he's facing with paying for it (which is alleviated now by the generous outpouring of support from his friends and fans).

Weeeeell...now I come to you with another matter, one a bit more personal to me: Marty Snodgrass, a friend and colleague in the indy comic business (in addition to his freelancing, he and I have both worked for Equinox Comics who has published...almost everything I've released in comics), is quadriplegic and on a ventilator. About two weeks ago, his handicap accessible van was stolen in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Now, his family found the van...but it was stripped out and damaged, and his family only had liability insurance on it. He pretty much needs such a van to get to and from the doctor, or anywhere he might want or need to go, so he's trying to raise the money to get another van. He's set up a GoFundMe account (click the link to hear it in his words) in hopes of raising the money he needs to get another van, so if you have the means, please help a guy out...and, if you don't have the means, please pass the word on.
