Former Spider-man scribe Peter David suffered a stroke after the Christmas holiday, while vacationing in Florida. According to an article by Robot Six, David "will undergo in-patient rehabilitation once he’s released from the hospital".
While Peter's writing on Spider-man is probably a small fraction of his work in comic writing, it is among some of the most acclaimed of the character. On behalf of everyone at Spiderfan, we wish Mr. David a speedy recovery.
