Roger Slifer 1954 - 2015

Writer and colourist Roger Slifer has passed away from complications following a hit-and-run incident in 2012. Mark Evanier has more details at News from ME: Roger Slifer, R.I.P.

His work included writing for a number of 1970s series such as Defenders, Marvel Two-in-One, Power Man, Iron Man and Avengers. Later he wrote Omega Men for DC where he co-created Lobo before working in animation on a number of my childhood cartoons such as Transformers, Conan the Adventurer and Jem and the Holograms.

The circumstances of the accident and his condition in his final months are heartbreaking.

  1. I remember seeing his name in loads of comics. Shame he's died at such a young age.
