Robin King Reveals New Death Metals in The Daily LITG 4th August 2020

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. Yesterday that meant the presence and absence of Baldur's Gate 3, Pokemon GO and Death Metal, with the new Robin King and new Death Metal one-shots. 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.

Robin King Reveals New Death Metals in The Daily LITG 4th August 2020
Peach Momoko cover with The Robin King for Death Metal #3.


The Robin King – and the ten most-read stories on Bleeding Cool yesterday.

I know he is called The Robin King but I just want to call him Robin King. You know, of the King family who live up on the hill. Anyway he was no match for Baldur's Gate 3 which maintained its lead in yesterday's top ten of traffic – even though it doesn't yet exist and possibly may not in the expected form.
