It's Free Comic Book Day Today in The Daily LITG, 14th August 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. And today is Free Comic Book Day – mostly. Britain only got a half order so some stores are splitting it into two, others are waiting until the end of the month. The world keeps turning, and America is beginning to heal from all the burns. Even if a few scabs need pulling off first.
