A couple days after suffering a massive heart attack, writer, director, actor and lifelong comic book fan Kevin Smith has returned home from the hospital.

Smith posted an update to his Twitter account along with a selfie, in which he appeared to be in good spirits, and thanked fans for their outpouring of support during his time in the hospital. Smith also mentioned that he is now a vegetarian following the serious health scare. "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!" he wrote.

Smith rose to fame with the low-budget indie film Clerks, a film he wrote, directed, produced and co-starred in. The success of the 1994 film quickly spawned a series of spinoffs in which Smith reprised his role as the overcoat-wearing stoner Silent Bob.

In the late ’90s, Smith turned his attention to the world of mainstream comics, contributing stories for major characters Daredevil, Batman, Spider-Man and Green Arrow. Currently, he stars in the AMC reality television series Comic Book Men, which is set in his comic book store Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash, located in Red Bank, NJ. A frequent podcaster, Smith also co-hosts several shows on his own podcast network, including Fatman on Batman. He has directed episodes of The Flash and Supergirl.
