Bill Mantlo in sad state of health today

Life Health Pro has a 9-page article about Bill Mantlo, once one of Marvel's leading writers on series like ROM: Spaceknight and the Incredible Hulk, who's now in a hospital suffering from a badly damaged body. It begins by telling:
Bill Mantlo was a legendary writer for Marvel Comics in the 1970s and 1980s. But today, he inhabits a broken body abandoned by both the health insurance industry and the federal healthcare reform meant to help people like him. This is his story.
You can read the rest at the link, but if this tells something, Mantlo may have become a victim of the kind of government mandated healthcare Obama's administration has been advocating. It's definitely very sad to learn that this once notable Marvel contributor is now spending his 60th year in such a terrible condition.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
