Kevin Smith, director, writer, actor, and lifelong comic-book fan, recently suffered a heart-attack and was subsequently admitted to hospital.
Thankfully, Smith was released from the hospital on 28th February after feeling much better.
Smith, famous for his View Askewniverse series of movies, took to Twitter to confirm his improved health and thank fans for their support during this time.
“Home again, home again, jiggety-jig! Home is where the heart is and the heart is feeling good! It’s actually getting more blood flow and oxygen than it has in a long time. So I am ALERT, to say the least! Thank you for all the kind words, folks – from Vegetarian Kev, Day 2!”
Smith made his major directing, producing, editing, writing, and acting debut in 1994’s Clerks which proved successful enough to launch a series of interconnected movies featuring the likes of Smith’s character Silent Bob and Jason Mewes’ Jay.
Aside from his View Askewniverse movies, Smith has written several stories for both Marvel and DC, including runs with characters such as Daredevil, Batman, Spider-Man, and Green Arrow. He’s currently starring in AMC‘s reality TV series Comic Book Men which is set in Smith’s own comic book store, Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash, in Red Bank, New Jersey. And he’s also directed several episodes of The CW‘s The Flash and Supergirl.
It’s great to hear Smith is back home and feeling better – and his new vegetarian diet seems to be doing him wonders, too!
