How Many GI Joe? The Daily LITG, 26th 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.


Today I am in San Diego for the San Diego Comic-Con: Special Edition – I'm on the Black Panel at 2pm this afternoon, for the first panels of the day. I wonder how it's all going to go down?
