Tone lobo Roger Slifer update and auction

Lobo-co-creator, Roger Slifer. Slifer, who was struck by a hit-and-run white sedan in Santa Monica, Calif., on June 23, remains hospitalized and faces a very long recovery. He remains unconscious and unresponsive, a condition that may last for months…or longer.

As of last Friday, he was moved to Barlow Respiratory Hospital, a facility that specializes in respiratory issues. Slifer still cannot breathe on his own, but it is hoped that in 3-6 weeks he’ll be able to do that, and can start rehab in 3-6 months. Slifer’s sister-in-law, Emma, has further updates on his medical condition on Facebook.
 
The Hero Initiative is raising money to help with Slider’s care and has just spotlighted this great Lobo by Tone Rodriguez, which is now up on eBay.

The person who hit Slifer and changed his life forever remains at large. If you have any information, call the Santa Monica Police Department at 310-458-8495.

    Don’t know Rodger .. but my next shot goes with a toast for his speedy recovery.

    One correction. I am Roger’s older brother Michael and Emma Slifer is my wife making her his sister-in-law not cousin.

    Thanks for keeping the story out there.

  3. Michael, thanks for the correction, and all best wishes to you and Roger.

  4. Best Wishes Roger! Hoping for a quick and full recovery!

  5. Sharing what John Byrne had to say on his forum upon hearing the news.

    I had not heard about this. Haven’t had contact with Roger in years, but he was there at “the beginning” for me, with Roger Stern at CPL. In fact, the plethora of Rogers working for that classic little ‘zine is how a certain robot mascot came to be called ROG-2000.

    My best wishes and hopes for Roger.
