Marshall Rogers dies
Marshall Rogers, the legendary artist of such diverse characters as Batman, Mr. Miracle, Doctor Strange, the Silver Surfer, and Green Lantern, died this weekend at the age of 57. Details have yet to be disclosed.
Marshall co-created and drew a veriety of creator-owned projects such as Detectives, Inc., Captain Quick and the Foozle, Scorpio Rose, and Coyote. He is best known for his collaborations with writer Steve Englehart. Marshall was also part of Neal Adams’ "Crusty Bunkers" crew at Continuity Studios.
A personal friend, I fondly remember Marshall telling me about the time he was working at Continuity Studios when the ceiling literally fell in. He was finishing a project for Neal, and did not want to leave his drawing table until it was finished. Folks had to work around him, as he wouldn’t budge. He was a great guy, with an awesome sense of humor and a broad smile to match.
