Comics Reporter correspondent Tom Spurgeon notes the hospitalization of Arnold Drake, one of the standout writers from the Golden and Silver Ages of superhero comic books. Drake, seen at left in a picture I took during Comic-Con last weekend, is the co-creator of Doom Patrol, a series about a team of super-powered misfits, and Deadman, the ghost on a quest to find his killer who remains one of DC Comics‘ most popular characters four decades after his first appearance and is quite possibly the subject of the next movie from Guillermo del Toro after he completes Hellboy 2. Drake was found collapsed in his home earlier this week and is recuperating at Cabrini Medical Center.
