Comic book writer James Hudnall died yesterday at the age of 61. Artist Matt Cossin, who was working with Hudnall on a new book, announced the news on Facebook, stating “James’ sister, Susan, has informed me that my good friend, writer and collaborator, James Hudnall, has passed away. James was one of the very few kind hearted, genuine people I have ever met. I still can’t believe it.”

James David Hudnall was born in Santa Rosa, California, on April 10, 1957. His parents divorced when he was two, and after his mother remarried a man in the US Navy, they moved to San Diego, where Hudnall attended Point Loma High School. After graduating, Hudnall joined the US Air Force in 1976, and was stationed in England. After being discharged, he attended Coleman College in San Diego, majoring in computer science.

It was during his return to the States that Hudnall became interested in writing for comics. He began working as a marketing director for Eclipse Comics in 1985, which published his first comic “Espers” the following year. The series, originally illustrated by David Lloyd (“V for Vendetta”), told the story of people with advanced psychic powers who had lived secretly among us for centuries, and went on to be published intermittently during the ’80s and ’90s by Marvel and Image.

Hudnall wrote several titles for Marvel, Malibu and DC, including “Alpha Flight,” “Godwheel” (Marvel and Malibu’s first crossover), and 1989’s “Lex Luthor…”
