Dave Bautista Vs Ted Cruz – The Daily LITG, 22nd July 2020

The world can seem like a terrible and strange place sometimes, but at Bleeding Cool you can still read all about comics, merch, TV shows, games, movies and more. And yesterday that meant Dave Bautista, DC Comics and Diamond,  Steve Bell and the quality or otherwise of The Dark Knight. Today is also the launch of San Diego Comic-Con@Home – why not join me in enjoying it. The Daily Lying In The Gutters, remains a long-running run around the day before and the day ahead. You can sign up to receive it as an e-mail here.

What's happening today.

It does look like the comic book conventions are coming back, in small ways, but also an online version of the big one.

Comic Book birthdays today.

There may not be much of a party atmosphere right now. All depends on which state you are living in. But comics folk are still getting older and still celebrating that special date. With eleven years for us as well.
