Fisher possessed a unique and instantly recognizable drawing style. He first gained attention for his work on DC Comics' Green Lantern: Willworld, and was nominated for an Eisner Award for "Best Penciller/Inker" for Flash: Time Flies and Vertigo Pop! Tokyo.
In 2005, Fisher pencilled the five issue "Snow" storyarc of the Batman series Legends of the Dark Knight. (The story arc was written by Dan Curtis Johnson and J.H. Williams III.) Fisher provided the art for the Marvel mini-series Fantastic Four/Iron Man: Big in Japan (scripted by Zeb Wells) that appeared in 2005. (The series' final issue was published in early 2006.)
Fisher produced magazine and album covers in Finland and his adopted home of Japan. He also worked for a time for Presto Studios doing concept design work for the computer game Myst III: Exile.
Becker and Mayer publishers posthumously released a project titled Backpack Alarm, written by Shar Levine and Leslie Johnstone and featuring illustrations by Fisher. (The book provides a do-it-yourself guide to building a personal backpack security system.)
Fisher's death was made public by his friend and fellow artist J.H. Williams III on February 2, 2006, one day after the release of the final issue of the Fantastic Four/Iron Man mini-series. Fisher died instantly after falling seven stories from the roof of a hotel in Osaka. He is survived by his first wife April, second wife Hisako, and their son Toufuu.
