Comic Book writer Peter David suffers from a stroke

Writer of novels and several comic book titles, Peter David tweeted this morning that he has suffered from a stroke. While on vacation in Florida he lost control of the right side of his body. He has reported on his website that he cannot see properly, move his right arm or leg, is currently getting the extent of the damage sorted out and will report as further as details become clarified.

DC Comics artist Ethan Van Sciver also announced the terrible tragedy on his Facebook page, offering fervent wishes of Peter’s full recovery. Kurt Busiek and Ron Marz have also reached out to Peter via Twitter.
