As detailed in the Moment of Cerebus blog, Dave Sim, 58, checked himself into the hospital after suffering severe abdominal pains, which was a good thing because he has an intestinal blockage and had to undergo surgery. He’s recovering and in good spirits. There are a number of comments referencing some kind of hand problem that has prevented him from drawing, and you can see him wearing a hand brace in the photos. I missed out on the origins of this, but hope that he gets that fixed up, too. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.
Note the above photo was taken when he was admitted.
