Even More About Statues in The Daily LITG 16th June 2020

The world seems like a terrible and strange place sometimes, but fandom still brings us together. Or at least gives us someone to unite against. 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. Which right now seems to be discussing Emma Frost statues. I know, who would have thought people would get so defensive of statues right now. But they were equally concerned about Harley Quinn statues a year ago too. Welcome all, to the daily Lying In The Gutters, a long-running run around the day before and the day ahead.

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.
