Wolverine, Red Hood and Superman – The Daily LITG, 1st July 2020

The world seems like a terrible and strange place sometimes, but at Bleeding Cool you can still read all about comics, television shows and movies. We have also been covering multiple accusations by many people in and around comic books of sexual harassment, grooming and worse. Bleeding Cool EIC Kaitlyn Booth has held the firm line that we don't repeat accusations on Bleeding Cool without the agreement of those making the claims. Sometimes that means we run stories that others do not, sometimes we don't run stories that others do, sometimes we run stories later. Yesterday saw a lot of attention regarding a story we ran about Scott Lobdell a year ago. Today there are more. The Daily Lying In The Gutters, remains a long-running run around the day before and the day ahead. Including Wolverine, Red Hood and Superman joining The Authority – more on that to come. And as a week skipped by Marvel and DC for new comics – what else is on the stands today? You can sign up to receive it as an e-mail here.

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.
