Through the 1970s an 80s Bill Mantlo was a familiar presence in comics, scripting many favourites: Rom, Micronauts, Spider-Man, Hulk, Alpha Flight, etc, etc. Tragically his career came to an end with an accident that left him severely brain damaged. A new book about this remarkable writer is in the works, the proceeds of which will go to benefit the man himself.
