Underground comic icon S. Clay Wilson suffered a severe injury in November. He is out of the hospital now, but will need extensive rehabilitation, and friends and family are putting on some benefits to help with the massive medical costs. If the incredibly troublesome and twisted art of this man has entertained or helped you in any way, please consider helping out if you can.
Here's some info and links:
S. Clay Wilson Noise Benefit
Jan 11 at the Hemlock Tavern in San Francisco, starting at 6 p.m.
Mojo Lounge Benefit
Jan 24th at the Mojo Lounge in Fremont, CA. The Dave Walker Band will play from 3 to 7 and there will be a raffle afterward with CDs, artwork, amp repair coupons and other donations, as well as comic books and art for sale during the performance. All proceeds will directly help pay for S. Clay's medical expenses. For more info, email Dan Fogel of HippyComix at firstname.lastname@example.org.
