Breaking: Peter David Releases His First Statement

Jeff Hill 01/19/2013 Features, News, ZDONOTUSE

Earlier this afternoon, comics legend Peter David returned to manning his own Twitter account, with a short, but simple message:  “Hi.  It’s me.”

This got fans interested enough to click the link provided, which went into greater detail about the famous “writer of stuff” and his road to recovery.  For those who are not aware, less than one month ago, Mr. David suffered a stroke.  His wife, Kathleen, had been providing short updates as to her husband’s progress, but it was reassuring to fans (myself included) to hear that Peter has taken hold of his own social media accounts and website yet again, proving that he is making strides in his recovery process.  On his own personal website, he had this to say:


First of all, I want to thank my lovely wife for filling in so far. She’s done a terrific job.

Second, I think it is amazing to see the outpouring of support and good wishes for my recovery. I never expected anything like this to happen to me. Who would? Nevertheless, I’m down here in Jacksonville at a hospital that specializes in putting people like me back together again. Every day is filled with all types of physical therapy dedicated to enabling the right side of my body to converse with the left side once more. I have no idea what to expect of my physical abilities the day I walk out of here (or get wheeled out of here) in mid-February. But I am certainly hoping for the best.

Saturday and Sunday are generally very quiet days. Gives me time to work and to reflect upon everything I’m dealing with. This is unlike anything I have ever had to handle in my life. There are days that I really don’t want to think about what I have to face. But I feel like it’s my job to keep as positive an attitude going as is humanly possible. I owe that to my family and friends.

Thank you for all your support.

Just like the Hulk, the character that most know and love due to David’s long-lasting and award-winning run, Peter David is proving once again that he is the strongest one there is.  Hopefully this good news is just the beginning.  Fans want their “writer of stuff” back, and we here at Comic Booked continue to wish Mr. David nothing but a speedy recovery and a swift return to the medium that loves him.

    Glad he's getting there. Must be tough for his wife.

        We are obviously all on the same page with our hopes for nothing but good news for Mr. David and his family. I sincerely hope that the next news piece we cover on him will be about his return to regular writing duties.

    I am glad that he recovered from his condition. The comic world’s prayers have brought him back and I thank god for it. I recently discovered about hi stroke and this made me real sad. Thanks for this post.
