Wishing Writer Peter David a Full Recovery

The Young Justice Sins of Youth cover, copyright DC Comics, one of my favorite YJ stories.

Writer Peter David, known for his Star Trek novels and his comic work on such projects as Marvel’s X-Factor, suffered a stroke earlier this week, according to a notice posted on his website.

“We were on vacation in Florida when I lost control of the right side of my body. I cannot see properly and I cannot move my right arm or leg. We are currently getting the extent of the damage sorted out and will report as further details become clarified.”

David is the co-creator and author of the bestselling Star Trek: The New Frontier series, has written episodes of Babylon 5 and the prequel series, Crusade, and also has a long-running column, “But I Digress….” in the The Comic Buyer’s Guide.

My own favorites of David’s work are the Young Justice series featuring the new generation of DC’s heroes, which provided the name and some of the inspiration for the Young Justice television show, and the Hulk story, The Incredible Hulk: Future Imperfect, in which a younger Bruce Banner battles his older self, who has become the world’s dictator. The art is by comic great George Perez. If you haven’t read any of David’s work, those titles are a great start or you can check out his full line of books and pick one. They are all worth a read.

Best wishes to David and all of GeekDad’s hopes for a full recovery.
