One of the best comic book writers Peter David had a stroke on December 30th. Regular updates on his Blog have indicated that he is doing well and has started to be able to walk again. But as we all know from crazy medical moments such as this the doctor bill will start hurting. So there has been a call to help and the way to do that is to go to his blog:
And there you can find ways to buy some of his comic books. If you don’t have the money or you already own the comic books listed send this link around or tell a friend you know who likes comic books because in situations like this every cent helps.
For those who might not know off hand who Peter David is he’s had his hand in a lot of projects over the years. Probably of most note currently is his involvement writing for the cartoon “Young Justice” on Cartoon Network, which is one of my top ten favorite TV shows of this past year. He also wrote on “Babylon 5″ and did a 12 year run of the comic book “The Incredible Hulk.” Oddly I was first introduced to Peter David at a very young age when I bought the Star Trek: The Next Generation book Imzadi. It’s the story which is often referred to on the show of William Riker and Deanna Troy’s love before their time on the Enterprise. It was the second TNG book I read as a teenager and I still have it on my bookshelf right now.
So go to his blog and buy some comics to help this guy out. He’s a great writer and the comics he is featuring are probably going to be just as good as his other stuff so give it a chance. Thanks.
