My Hero Academia Funko Pops in the Daily LITG, 8th July 2020

Yesterday, two stories broke late at night – that DC Comics had stealth-published the FCBD Generation Zero comic book (without the timeline) in the Flash Forward trade paperback. While Marvel comics were returning certain comics that had gone digital-only, or had disappeared altogether back into print. We'll see how both those stories develop today. But it was also all about My Hero Academia Funko Pops… The world can seem like a terrible and strange place sometimes, but at Bleeding Cool you can still read all about comics, 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.

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.

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. With eleven years for us as well.
