Diagnosed with Anti-MAG IgM Peripheral Neuropathy, a rare autoimmune disease that attacks the nervous system, Landman has for months watched helplessly as the numbness that started in his toes crawls up his legs to the point where he now moves as if trudging in snow. As he tries to sell his dental practice years before he thought he would, he's jumped back into his collection of 10,000 comics selling 420 of them in an online auction that could bring in over $750,000 for his family and more importantly, bringing awareness and recognition to the disease that is robbing him of his mobility, and profession.
