Samurai Cat creator Mark Rogers died February 2 of apparent heart failure while hiking.

Author and artist of six books in the satirical Samurai Cat series, Rogers also wrote stand-alone novels The Dead, Zorachus, and The Nightmare of God, plus two other series of books, Blood of the Lamb and Zancharthus.

  1. This is horrible! He was SO TALENTED! & MUCH TOO YOUNG! I will miss him so much; his sarcasm was almost as amusing as his works.

  2. He was gruff and funny. Haven’t associated with him over the past few years, but he could be very engaging.

    He once told his friends that he had been in negotiations over a proposed Samuri Cat cartoon/movie, but the producers wanted so many changes he dropped the project.

  3. I knew Mark for more than 50 years. We attended grammar school, high school and college together. He was my best friend and we attended many a convention together. I’d just like to add to his accomplishments that his novella, “The Runestone”, published by a small press in 1979 was made into a 1991 movie starring Peter Riegert, Joan Severance, William Hickey and Alexander Godunov. I’d also add that when Mark died he was doing what he liked best, being with his family. He leaves behind his wife, Kate, his children, Sophia, Jeanette, Patrick and Nicholas and his sister Lois, He also leaves behind many friends.

  4. Sorry, but I forgot to include amongst Mark’s surviviors, his granddaughter, Indigo Dahlia, born just last year.
