Herbert Walter Rogoff (May 12, 1927 - June 17, 2018)
http://obituaries.gloucestertimes.com/obituary/herbert-rogoff-1927-2018-1064780292

Herb Rogoff edited the G.I. Joe comic book for Ziff-Davis.

A good life and career.

I read thru the obit to find this:  "He drew over 8300 illustrations for Martin Sternberg’s “American Sign Language: A Comprehensive Dictionary,” published in 1981."

Now, I will pass the link on to my daughter who is an A.S.L. interpreter. Serendipity!

Agreed, Yoc. And somebody who knew and understood his career wrote a fine and detailed obit.

Bald's Dr. Killdeer appeared in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch while I was growing up. Definitely excellent art and stories.

R.I.P. Bob Napier (Dr. Bob)
« Reply #218 on: June 21, 2019, 08:37:56 AM »
It's with great sadness that I have to tell you that Bob Napier has died. Most of you will not be aware that Bob was a bit of a legend in Scotland's comic scene.  He was involved in the creation of aka, marts and cons, and wrote articles for aka the fanzine. An expert art spotter, he introduced me to the work of Alex Toth, for which I am eternally grateful.
He was friendly with a number of big name comics creators but was never afraid to criticise work when he felt it was required, including the classic Dave Gibbons signing session.
The inventor of mezzanine drinking and at times, a larger than life character, Bob will be missed.
