    • I will keep him in my thoughts. I also want to share a thought or two. As a youngster I wasn’t following comic writers and artists but instead just following characters. As an adult I realized that many of my favorite stories and characters were coincidentally penned by Peter David. Apparently I was a fan and didn’t even realize it.

      • David’s late 1980s run on the Hulk was revelatory for me as a young comics reader… combining laugh-out-loud dialogue and situational comedy with wild superhero action in ways that I’d never seen before (granted, up to that point, my superhero comics reading experience was largely limited to Claremont’s X-Men and Nocenti’s Daredevil, both of which were pretty “heavy” reads for a kid not even twelve years old at the time). Being exposed to his take on the pop psychology of the Hulk at such an impressionable age too, I think, helped develop in me a lifelong interest in the cognitive and neurosciences.
