Lobo creator and comic and animation writer Roger Slifer was moved to Barlow Respiratory Hospital, a long term acute care hospital, last Friday, according to a Facebook post
by his cousin Emma Slifer. Barlowe is expert in weaning patients off ventilators; Slifer has been on a ventilator since the hit and run accident that critically injured him in June (see "Lobo Creator in Critical Condition
"). He remains in a coma, although seizures that had plagued him until recently have abated, according to the post. Some other improvements have also been noted.
Police are searching for the hit and run driver, and artist Tone Rodriguez has created a drawing of Lobo to assist in the search and in helping Slifer cover his expenses, which is now being auctioned on eBay
by Hero Initiative.
