It has come to our attention that noted comics writer Peter David has suffered a stroke, the full extent of which is still being ascertained, though he was able to post the news on his blog himself. (Addition 31/12/12 - Kathleen David has updated the post with more details)

Regardless of any past events, on a personal level we naturally send Mr David our sincere best wishes and hope that he makes a full and speedy recovery.

Hopefully they can find the cause and prevent it from getting worse. From the description, it sounds very bad for him particularly.

Much as this is terrible news, why isn't this posted on no_scans?

We make "public interest" posts from times to times.

In this case because a lot of S_D members like Peter David's work and feel concerned and wish to express their sympathy and wishes for a quick and complete recovery (myself included), so it's not unlikely people would have wanted to post about it on s_d. And then they'd have had to include scan, and then that would have been awkward. So we cut to the chase and used our Mod's prerogative.

It's a personal fear of mine to suffer a stroke (what with frequent meds I take increasing risk of that) and I wouldn't wish such a thing on anyone.

PAD wrote so much the S_Ders rallied around in the olden days. Here's hoping he recovers without too much lasting damage.

Aw, man. I honestly never read much of his comics work, but I grew up on his Star Trek novels. I hope he pulls through.

I grew up on his Star Trek novels too, I even have an autographed copy of The Siege (his only Deep Space 9 book and one of the BEST of the series), I'm hoping he recovers.

I read The Siege and loved it years before I had any idea who Peter David was. He'd a fine writer, and I hope he heals swiftly.

I know Peter and his family slightly. He's a really lovely and insanely funny guy. I wish with all my heart for him to recover fully.

I'm sure there's 0 chance he'll see this, but get well soon Peter! You're writing one of the best books on the shelf and your work on Young Justice is amazing! One of my favorite writers, hands down.

I fell in love with his X-factor comics about two years ago, and only then discovered I was already a fan of his as I learned he was responsible for other comics I liked like Spike: Old Times Spike Vs Dracula and The Other story on Spiderman.
This news has hit me a bit emotionally as my mother had a kind of stork about a year ago. Something very different, but the idea of being so suddenly powerless to something in your brain scars teh hell out of me.
I'm gald at least his mind is still in order, and hope he will recover from the rest.

p.s. thank you S.D. mods for posting this.

I have recently been inventorying my comic collection and just inventoried my Hulk collection yesterday. The second largest run of one title in my sizable 30 year collection is his run on the Incredible Hulk. His Star Trek work is equally great.

My father had a stroke himself years back...and while PAD almost certainly won't get everything back, he'll get most of it back if he's lucky and gets through rehab. If his mind is intact (and it clearly sounds like it is), most of what he's lost can be regained.

My best wishes to him for a speedy recovery.

Peter David is one of seminal writers of comic book life - his Spider-Man, Hulk, X-Factor and Aquaman have all given me countless hours of joy. I hope he recovers soon.

Like many others have said, Peter David is one of the best. I really hope he gets well soon.

If there is one silver lining in this, is that PAD hasn't lost his mental accuity. A powerful intellect, a loving family, and a sense of humor can be powerful tools for recovery. He's given us so much...he so deserves the best.
