California BOLO: Be On The Lookout

Roger Slifer is a longtime comic book pro who helped co-create the character of Lobo for DC Comics.

Last June, Slifer was crossing the street in a crosswalk in Santa Monica, CA, when he was struck by a car.

The report:

"A white sedan slammed into Slifer, 57, in a crosswalk on Colorado Avenue near Fifth Street at about 12:45 a.m. Saturday, according to the Santa Monica Police Department.

"After breezing through the crosswalk, the driver of the vehicle failed to stop for the collision and continued northbound on 5th Street to Broadway, where they turned right and continued eastbound out of sight.

"In a press release Tuesday, Santa Monica police said they have no information on the driver.  The car was described as a late 1990's to early 2000 sedan, white, with a sunroof and tinted rear windows."

Here is a picture of the car in question:


Some people are theorizing this might actually be a wagon, a Subaru Imprezza, to be exact.

Slifer is currently still in a coma.  Hero Initiative is running continual updates.

In the meantime, the monster who did this is still at large.

Any of you who know someone who was tooling around Santa Monica with a vehicle matching this description, please report it to the Santa Monica police.

We must look out for each other.
