I always had an affection for illustrator Marshall Rogers because of his name. Seriously. Oh, yeah, I read his Batman Detective series with Steve Englehart, and I read virtually everything he drew for Marvel before 1992, when I dumped my comic collection.
Wait, I still have my old comic magazines in the attic! I'm going to go look for Deadly Hands of Kung Fu, an old b&w mag series that I'm pretty sure that I still have. Despite the admittedly hokey name, I really liked those stories that he illustrated and Chris Claremont wrote.
Got an e-mail about his death from an artist fellow I know yesterday. 57! My condolences to his friends and family.
