Much loved in the comics industry, the news has been received with shock, with condolences, and commiserations being offered to Walker. Eric Jones' last tweet was yesterday, was reacting to (false) news that Travis Charest had passed away, as well as approving of the sketch comedy group Whitest Kids U' Know finishing their animated film Mars, after the death of their member Trevor Moore, using all of his recorded dialogue. It is likely that friends and colleagues may wish to do similar for Eric.
