Comic book writer, editor and colorist Roger Slifer was struck by a hit-and-run driver in Santa Monica, Calif., on June 23. Police still have not located a suspect, but are on the lookout for a white 4-door sedan with a sunroof. Anyone with information can call the Santa Monica Police Department at 310-458-8495.
Roger was moved to Barlow Respiratory Hospital on Friday, July 27. He still cannot breathe on his own, but Barlow is a hospital that specializes in respiratory issues. The hope is in 3-6 weeks, he'll be able to start breathing on his own. If and when sufficient progress is made, he could be ready for rehab in 3-6 months.
Meanwhile, artist Tone Rodriguez has contributed an amazing Lobo pinup currently being auctioned via eBay to help pay for Roger’s care.
