Man..... I wish him, and his family the best.

I consider Peter David Aquaman the best version ever and he also introduced the trident and I was hoping Aquaman would become as powerful as Thor. Maybe Peter David should eat more vegetables and fruits, or consider going vegan and take vitamin b12 supplement to live longer.

Hopefully he will be OK. It seems like it was discovered in time.

He was my favorite writer as a kid, his Star Trek books literally started me reading. I wish him all the best and a quick and full recovery.

Great writer, and one of the few people at Marvel who don't deserve something like this. Always the way.

My mother suffered a stroke in August. He's got a long hard road ahead of him. I wish him all the best.

@TheAcidSkull:

Thanks for the update. In hindsight, things would not be as they are now had he been checked out sooner but you know -- with a lot of help and some real determination, he can get back to a place physically that will be different but still functional.

Good also to know his mind is clear and quick.

Not the best way to start the year, but like his wife said, he's lucky to be alive.
