    The Lazy Geeks Tribute: 2011 Comic-Con Special, Part 1

    As many of you know by now, Steven’s brother (and friend of the show), John, passed away on Monday, May 24. Just two days before his birthday. In his honor, the guys have re-released an episode he contributed on “The Lazy Geeks: 2011 Comic-Con Special, Part 1”. He was a close friend to Adam, aside from Steven’s big brother.

    If you would like to donate to his funeral and medical expenses, please click on the link for his GoFundMe page. If you don’t like GoFundMe, please donate through our PayPal account. Any help would be appreciated.

    RIP John
