Iron Man, Funko, Zavvi and The Daily LITG, 30th June 2020

The world seems like a terrible and strange place sometimes, but at Bleeding Cool you can still read all about comics, television shows and movies. We have also been covering multiple accusations by many people in and around comic books of sexual harassment, grooming and worse. Bleeding Cool EIC Kaitlyn Booth has held the firm line that we don't repeat accusations on Bleeding Cool without the agreement of those making the claims. Sometimes that means we run stories that others do not, sometimes we don't run stories that others do, sometimes we run stories later. The Daily Lying In The Gutters, remains a long-running run around the day before and the day ahead. Yesterday, dominated by comics chat over Iron Man, Funko and Zavvi. Lots and lots of Transformers. You can sign up to receive it as an e-mail here.
