A few things to note about the efforts to properly bury one of the industry's own.
The Outhouse reported last week about the Hero's Initiative's effort to secure a proper burial for Robert Washington III, as he was at risk of being given a pauper's burial in an unmarked grave.
Today, the Outhouse received word that the New York Chief Medical Examiner's Office has placed Mr. Washington's body on hold in order to give the campaign more time to raise money to give the comic creator a proper funeral.
If you would like to contribute to the cause, go to the Hero's Initiative. When donating, be sure to note that you'd like your donation to go towards Robert Washington III.
