Writer and translator James Hudnall has died
Sad news, as it’s been reported that writer James Hudnall has passed away.
Hudnall was fairly prolific in the comics industry, writing for DC, Marvel, and several independent publishers throughout his career. His most notable works were a fairly lengthy run on Alpha Flight, the DC Comics graphic novel Lex Luthor: The Unauthorized Biography, Espers for Eclipse Comics, and Hard Case for Malibu. His series Harsh Realm was adapted to television by Chris Carter of The X-Files fame, though this was not without controversy as Carter originally failed to credit Hudnall and co-creator Andrew Paquette for the creation of the series.
While Hudnall’s comic output had slowed in recent years, he worked consistently, notably in digital comics and as a manga translator. His first prose novel, The Age of Heroes: Hell’s Reward, was released in 2013, the first book in a planned series.
He was 61.
