Lying In The Gutters – 31st January 2012

Today our thoughts are more with the friends and family of Mike Pandel, also known from the A Comic Show video blogs as Tri Force Mike. Only three days he wrote a hilarious piece for Bleeding Cool calling for a new My Little Pony comic. Two nights ago he was involved in a terminal traffic accident.

But this is how I’m remembering him now. Making me laugh and laugh and laugh. Here’s to you, Triforce. I’ll try never to quantify happiness by dollar value…
