Masters of the Universe and other Universes, Daily LITG, 31st May 2020

The world seems like a terrible and strange place sometimes, but fandom still brings us together. These are strange times, but The Daily LITG is becoming a valuable way to quantify just what comic book geek culture is up to in this time of trial. Yesterday Masters of the Universe, Lucifer, JK Rowling, Warhammer and an awful lot more is what interested us.  Welcome all, to the daily Lying In The Gutters, a long-running run around the day before and the day ahead.

Comic Book Events happening today

There would also have been signings, appearances, symposia, all manner of comic book-related events. But a few have gone online, and here are some still happening today, on the Daily LITG. And we are returning to events in the flesh as well. I'm betting you can talk Masters of the Universe at that Galactic Comics event today if you're so inclined.

Comic Book birthdays today

There may not be much of a party atmosphere right now. All depends on which state you are living in. But comic folk are still getting older and still celebrating that special date.

  • Adrian Tomine, creator of Optic Nerve.
  • David Anthony Kraft, founder, and editor of Comics Interview.
  • Dean Haspiel, comics creator for a variety of publishers, 2010 Emmy Award winner.
