X-Men '97 in The Daily LITG, 28th of May 2023

An LITG runaround the previous day on Bleeding Cool, as well as the past few years, as well as so many comic creator birthdays.

Welcome to the Daily LITG. 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. 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. And today I type this on the way to the ExCel Centre for the second day of MCM London Comic Con. If you see me there, give me a wave!

LITG three years ago – Christian Cooper.

Bleeding Cool continued to report from the comics industry shutdown, as it starts to ramp up, but yesterday it was all about former Marvel Comics writer and editor, Christian Cooper and his confrontation with Amy Cooper – no relation.
