RIP, comic book guy

In a horrible bit of comics news, New York police say a 77-year-old man named Homer Marciniak died of a heart attack after being beaten by thieves who had broken into his home to steal his valuable comic book collection.

Our sympathy to his family, and (not to be flippant) we hope that comic book collection was found safe and returned to Mr. Marciniak's family.
