Happy Birthday Neil Gaiman- The Daily LITG, 10th of November 2021

LITG: 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. 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. The world keeps turning, and America is beginning to heal from all the burns. Even if a few scabs need pulling off first. And a happy 61st birthday to Neil Gaiman, with a play in the West End, a couple of TV series in production, a Norse Mythology and American Gods adaptation in the comics, and all the books…
