Underground comic icon S. Clay Wilson suffered a severe injury in November. He 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:
