A few things to note about the efforts to properly bury one of the industry's own.
A Word From Our Sponsors... More Below!
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.
