Recently we reported that living legend Peter David, writer of venerated runs on Spider-Man, the Hulk, X-Factor, and everything else you’ve ever heard of, suffered a stroke. Today, his wife Kathleen posted on Peter David’s website about how we can help this man who’s given so much to us.
“Even though we have health insurance we have co-pays and the like. And since this stroke fell at the end of the year, we have all the new co-pays to deal with (I can honestly see those of you who have had to deal with this nodding your heads). And there are things that the insurance company just won’t cover (more head nodding). So we are at the beginning of what is going to be a very expensive year even though we are only 4 days in.”
“Buying his other books does help but that is very long term and isn’t much per books but it does help especially the Marvel graphic novels he has written.”
“We do need your help to help him. He is working very hard at getting back to all that he loves to do and we are trying to ease his mind about whatever we can ease his mind about so he can do it faster.”
“I am grateful to everyone who has helped or is going to help Peter.”

I know it’s hard times for everybody, but let’s all do what we can to help the great Peter David return to what he loves and does best. The greatest thing about comic books creating such a community as this is that we can band together to help when needed. Let’s show some “Crawlspace Love” to the David family, with best wishes for a full and speedy recovery!
