Flashing Swords #6 Gets Sheathed – The Daily LITG, 1st August 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. As of yesterday that seemed all about the decision of several sci-fi and fantasy authors to pull out of the revival of a classic anthology over a bizarre foreword by the man who was bringing it all together, in Flashing Swords #6. 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.
