Roman Dirge Injured in Hit-and-Run Accident

A fund is established to help illustrator Roman Dirge with his medical expenses from a hit-and-run accident in Hollywood, CA, on February 26, 2013.


Roman Dirge, creator and illustrator of the Lenore comic book series, and his girlfriend Amber were injured in a hit-and-run accident in Hollywood, CA, on February 26, 2013. One of Dirge's legs was severely damaged, but he is said to be in good spirits despite facing a long recovery.

Roman's friends and family have set up a fund to help him with his medical bills as they will be exceedingly large.

"I'm a self employed artist and I do not have insurance. The bills will start arriving next week, which I assume will add up to the cost of a small private island. One of my good friends set up a donation page to help with this. Believe me, anything helps. I've been blown away by the outpouring of support from friends, fans and family. I thank everyone, from the bottom of my jerky-like heart, and I'm just so thankful of everything." – Roman Dirge

If you are a fan of Roman’s work and would like to wish him all the best by making a contribution, please visit the Give Forward page set up in his name.
