Peter David

As many of you may already know, writer Peter David recently suffered a stroke while on holiday. He is slowly recovering and his family are posting regular updates to his blog.

He has written many comics over the years (and much else besides) but for me the highlight will always be his twelve year run on the Incredible Hulk, with the Hulk/Hercules one-shot fom 1996 probably my single favourite issue. He's also written quite a bit of Spider-Man over the years, including "The Death of Jean DeWolff", the original Hobgoblin revelation and almost the entire of Spider-Man 2099. Much of this has yet to be reprinted by the Essentials but "The Death of Jean DeWolff" is reprinted in Essential Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man volume 5.

Medical treatment in the States is expensive and so many are seeing to help. How You Can Help Peter David Recover sets out details, including how to donate directly and links to buy some of his books.
