Brian Michael Bendis is probably one of the most notable modern-day comic writers, and made headlines when he moved over from Marvel to write for the DC camp. As it turns out, Bendis was in intensive care last week, and an infection will leave him recovering for months.
Check out his post:
so, 1 week ago I woke up in intensive care because of a surprise MRSA infection that grabbed & blinded me for 4 days. this was the worst week of my life. I almost died on Monday. it'll take months to recover. i wasn't even going to share it was so bad..

During his tenure at Marvel, Bendis was the writer behind Ultimate Spider-Man, House of M, Secret War, and Secret Invasion. He was also the guy who created the Miles Morales Spider-Man, a character who's getting his own animated movie next year.
We don't know how this will affect Bendis' work on comics, but he did say that he has been allowed by Marvel and DC to work when he is capable. He also gives big thanks to all his family and friends who supported him while he was still in the hospital.
Hopefully Bendis bounces back. It's kind of bad timing that he would get sick after just moving to a different publishing company. I can't wait to see what Bendis has in store for DC.
For now, we can just look forward to Bendis' creation, Miles Morales, in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse which comes out Dec. 14, 2018.
