Jeff Millar (1942-2012)

Writer Jeff Millar, 70, died November 30, 2011 after a long struggle with cancer. Best known for writing the long-running syndicated comic strip Tank McNamara (1974-present), illustrated by Bill Hind, Millar was also an occasional prose fiction writer: SF story “Toto, I Have a Feeling We’re Not in Kansas Anymore” appeared in Orbit 17 (1975); thriller novel Private Sector in 1978; and zombie story “Dead and Buried”, co-written with Alex Stern, was the basis for horror movie Dead & Buried (1981, with a novelization by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro). He was also a playwright.

Jeffrey Lynn Millar was born July 10, 1942 in Pasadena TX, growing up in League City and graduating from the University of Texas. He began writing for the Houston Chronicle in 1964, as a film and music critic, and began writing his own humor column in 1972. He worked at the Chronicle until retiring in 2000.
