The following was posted on Eric Martin’s Facebook page:
My name is Michael Martin, I am Eric’s brother. I hate to pass this information so informally but I didn’t know any other way to reach many of Eric’s friends. My brother Eric died yesterday (Nov 18th) in his sleep from a massive heart attack. I dont have any information regarding his arrangements but you can all rest assured his wishes are being carried out.
The Comic Book Noise Family extends their most heartfelt condolences to Eric’s family and will be observing a week of Mourning.
