In 1992, Bill Mantlo, legendary comic book writer and co-creator of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy’s Rocket Racoon, was involved in a tragic hit-and-run accident that left him in a coma. He woke up, but suffers irreparable brain damage that has left him in institutional care ever.

Bill’s brother, Michael Mantlo, thanked Marvel for this opportunity claiming they gave him “the happiest day of his life.” Click here for more on Marvel’s kind act towards this fantastic creator!
