James D. Hudnall dead at 61

I really loved Lex Luthor: The Unauthorized Biography.

James Hudnall, Creator of ESPers, Has Died Age 61

James Hudnall, profilic hard boiled comic book writer has died aged 61. Tomorrow would have been his 62nd birthday.

Working as a marketing director at Eclipse Comics, he created the comic series ESPers there in 1986 with V For Vendettas David Lloyd, which would be revived for Marvel and Image Comics years later, along with his sequel, Interface. He would also work on Marvel and DC titles such as Alpha Flight, Strikeforce: Morituri and write the Trump-based graphic novel, Lex Luthor: The Unauthorized Biography.

His comic book series Harsh Realm was also adapted to television by X-Files producer Chris Carter in 1998, though Hudnall and co-creator Andrew Paquettewould sue both Chris Carter and Fox Television when the comic creators reveived no credit on the show. In subseqent episodes, their name would appear.

Hudnall was also patt of the Malibu Untraverse line, writing and co-creating the comic books Hardcase and The Solution.

In recent years, Hudnall expressed his right wing libertarian thoughts through a series of comic book strips and blog entries, working with the late Batton Lash on the Breitbart-owned site Big Hollywood.

He also returned to work with David Lloyd, for the weekly digital comic anthology, Aces Weekly. He also wrote the novel line The Age of Heroes and in 2017, received the Inkpot Award at San Diego Comic Con International.

His death will come as a shock to many. Hudnall had lost a leg and wore a prosthetic device but was still very active in the comics scene, and recently appeared at the San Diego Comic Fest.

I remember ESPers back in the day. I had no idea that Harsh Realm was even based off a comic. It wasn't a bad show, but I only got to watch it on DVD long after it had been canceled. In a fair universe, that show runs 3-5 seasons.
