An appeal for Josh Medors

Josh Medors, a comic artist fighting cancer without the benefit of medical insurance. He’s worked on titles such as 30 Days of Night Annual, Dial M For Monster a Cal Macdonald mystery, Horrorcide and Runes of Ragnan.

BOOM! Studios is donating ALL PROCEEDS from the sale of their new PULP TALES anthology to Josh Medors and his family.

Cover art and preview pages here:

If your email program breaks long links, use this one:

PULP TALES is a "two-fisted one-shot featuring all-new, action-packed stories by horror master Steve Niles, P.U.N.K.S' Josh Fialkov and Kody Chamberlain, '76's B. Clay Moore & Seth Peck, Capote in Kansas' Chris Samnee, In My Lifetime's Tony Fleecs, and more! Featuring a cover by Ben Templesmith!"

24pgs / Full Color / $3.99

Like most independent comics, if the pre-orders aren't there, this book will be horribly under-ordered.

Rather than another memorial/charity for a comic creator who's passed on, why not try and help a creator (and his family) while he's still here?

I have created a little bumper for everyone if you could please add it to one of your shows to try and drum up some support for Josh.

Lets try and make a difference for someone who is still here with us!
