Eleven Years Later… The Daily LITG, 2nd of June 2020

The world seems like a terrible and strange place sometimes, but fandom still brings us together. These are strange times, but The Daily LITG is becoming a valuable way to quantify just what comic book geek culture is up to in this time of trial. Yesterday was the also eleven years since the launch of Bleeding Cool. That we are still here is as much a surprise to me as anyone else. Welcome all, to the daily Lying In The Gutters, a long-running run around the day before and the day ahead. You can sign up to receive it as an e-mail here.
