Lying in the Gutters for Easter Sunday 2018

In a move not exactly in keeping with the season, Easter Monday will see longstanding comic book writer Gerard Jones plead guilty on charges of possession and distribution of child pornography. Bleeding Cool ran details of the case, prosecution and defence statements over incarceration as well as letters in support of Jones from the comic book community. It is likely that other media will pick up on this story this week.
