Writer Peter David Suffers Stroke
Writer Peter David has suffered a stroke while on vacation with his family in Florida. His wife Kathleen has been updating David’s well-trafficked blog with updates, noting the events which led up to his trip to the emergency room and diagnosis, as well as his progress so far. While there has been a non-trivial loss of function on the right side of his body, he is alert and making his nurses laugh and has already made small but significant steps toward a recovery. David is best known as a prolific writer of comic books (The Incredible Hulk, Fallen Angel, Spider-Man 2099, and the original Young Justice comic book) and Star Trek novels, and has recently penned several episodes of the new Young Justice animated series and episodes of Ben 10: Alien Force and Ben 10: Ultimate Alien.
