So very sorry to hear that Marty Pasko has passed away. Aside from his considerable accomplishments in comics, Marty was a very successful, and very gifted, TV writer for (among others) Roseanne and the 80s incarnation of the Twilight Zone. (He was also one of the writers of the classic Batman animated film, Mask of the Phantasm.)
I sold my very first script to the 80s Zone and it was Marty, along with his then-partner Rebecca Parr, who did the excellent rewrite on my script.
I didn't know Marty well, but he was part of our weird, wonderful extended comic book family. All of us in this business are connected, through our work, our mutual friends, our shared passion for the tales of wonder that helped shape our lives.
God bless you, Marty. Requiescat in pace.
