Live From London Toy Fair in The Daily LITG, 24th January 2023

An LITG run around the previous day on Bleeding Cool, as well as a look at what's coming up, and writing today from London's Toy Fair. Now with added Todd McFarlane.

Welcome to the Daily 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 you can read the Top 100 Bleeding Cool Stories from 2022 right here. 

I'm at London Toy Fair today for its press day. I wonder what I will come across on my travels?
