When Rob Liefeld Predicted Collapse of DC – Daily LITG 12th 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 means digging through last week's Birds Of Prey for Harley Quinn's Killing Joke fro DC. 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.

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.

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. With eleven years for us as well.
