  15. Frank

    Is there anything we can do to help?

    • illeatyourself

      Unless we know him personally, I doubt there is other than sending him our hopes and get well cards. XD Still, at least you had the courtesy to ask! You, sir, are of a good mind.

  16. illeatyourself

    What happened!? Did you get sick? Did you get seriously injured!? TELL US!! But getting well soon takes higher priority, so do that first, THEN TELL US!! XD I’m just kidding, here’s hoping you can get outta there soon!

    Per the Twitter feed, Rick is out of surgery and the prognosis is good … given the week recovery/observation time, I’m guessing a heart problem, but at the moment that’s just a wild guess.

  18. zeroslash

    Oh, man. Get well soon. Don’t worry about the comic; your health is more important.

  19. Kimo

    oh, man, get better soon, hope it’s nothing too serious

  20. IceKitsune

    A bit of an update guys Rick is awake and talking right now but in some discomfort likely due to the surgery I would guess.

  21. GreighVonGottreich

    Get well soon, dude. :)

  22. Ozimul

    Please get well soon.

  23. Xane

  24. Dontlookmenaked

    Wha- what! What’s he sick with! Why can’t you tell us! WHAT’S GOING ON?!

  25. Marco

    God bless Rick hope all is well! I’ll keep you in my prayers!

  26. RootsofOrigin

    The hospitalization caught me off guard. Hope you recover fully Rick, and that you’re not alone over there.

  27. John Willow

    I hope for the best Rick

  28. holmebrian

    hmm that sucks
    i really hope he gets well soon till the time he lest us know what happened most of us will be worrying and hoping it is not too serious.
    I just hope it was not life threatening.

    Get well soon Rick

  29. Raska

    “hospitalization”!? that sounds serious. I hope you get better soon, Rick!

  30. john willow

    you expect a spook on halloween but never did i imagine one of my favourite artists going in for surgery. wish i could put in a comic for guest week just to give you more time to recover.

  31. ToaSoul

    well i hope you get better soon… wait did Bino do it as revenge for having him constantly hospitalized?

    • Arjay
