"Dead Men Tell No Tales" – Comics Industry Reacts to the Death of Jeffrey Epstein

The very well connected US financier and convicted sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein was reported as having killed himself in his New York prison cell while awaiting trial on further sex trafficking and conspiracy charges, to which he had pled not guilty. His body was discovered early yesterday. This followed an apparent suicide attempt last month and the day after hundreds of pages of court documents were released revealing new allegations against him and  high-profile associates.

And now New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has called for a full investigation, calling it "way too convenient" and asking "How many other millionaires and billionaires were part of the illegal activities that he was engaged in?

It is reported that Jeffrey Epstein had previously been on suicide watch. And everyone from Michael Moore to David Icke to Stephen King seems to think it's a conspiracy. The only thing is no one seems to be able to decide whether it was Donald Trump who ordered the hit or Bill and Hillary Clinton. And comic industry-and-related folk wanted their say…

But, no one's going to seriously suggest Prince Andrew, on this one, are they?

My mistake. Though there were differing levels of conspiratorial thought.

In the end, there was only one solution.
