I was informed today by Joe's son Mark that his dad was diagnosed with a broken hip. He'd been suffering over the weeks from leg pain and was issued a walker. X-rays subsequently detected a crack in the bone but an MRI confirmed that his hip was actually broken due to degeneration being that he never fell. A hip replacement is scheduled for the next couple of weeks followed by a hospital stay, rehab, and supervised care. His spirits are way up (I just had a long talk with him on the phone) and he's still working on deadlines for the Spider-Man strip (with Stan and Alex) and other gigs since he's not in pain while sitting. If any well-wishers want to send him something like a get well card at the following address: Joe Sinnott po box 406 Saugerties, NY 12477 I was told to feel free to post this info for that reason. Joe looks forward to hearing from both his friends and fans.
