Can Our Own Reality Be Rebooted? The Daily LITG, 3rd June 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. There was the recognition of the Black Lives Matter protest by pop culture. While Hellblazer was telling a story about viruses and racism, Superman was discovering they'd all been rebooted again. Lucky man. Welcome all, to the daily Lying In The Gutters, a long-running run around the day before and the day ahead. You can sign up to receive it as an e-mail here.
