The Geek Syndicate say this on their ebay page,
"Eric Martin was a huge comic fan who died of a heart attack on November 18th during his sleep. He was aged only 36. Eric was a regular contributor to many of the comic book podcasts out there and their forums. He was also a friend and great supporter of the Geek Syndicate podcast back when we first started and even came on a few episodes. It is because of our friendship with Eric that we at Geek Syndicate, in collaboration with many other people, have decided to organise this auction to help raise money for Eric's eight year old daughter Gracie."
We at SPBM didn't know Eric ourselves but appreciate the people who support us and know how much it means to have someone like Eric around, we realise how much he'll be missed and so we want to do all we can to promote this auction.
