Lying In The Gutters, the Monday runaround of the week on Bleeding Cool with one or new stories to boot. To sign up to the Lying In The Gutters mailing list and get this weekly post mailed to you, look to the right…

There are a number of blogs about Steve Ditko. One even repurposes his words. But now, it seems, there will be an actual blog by Steve Ditko on, well, everything probably. Where he types up what he wants to say, and friends will transcribe it online. It’s expected to challenge certain assumptions made by the Kirby heirs as to the nature of the work created for Marvel. We await the URL with interest…

This week on the Cool;

Amanda Conner breaks into the Wizard Top Ten Hot Artists on Wednesday, the first woman ever to do so. Mark Millar didn’t quite announce something for Marvel, Philip Tan is to join Dan Didio on a yet unconfirmed title, Josef Rubenstein to take on the Agent Provocateur comic, Todd McFarlane showed off his Spawn art, Chris Weston had artwork and storyboards for The Book Of Eli and I reported on another studio owed over ten thousand dollars by the Dabel Brothers.

A New Mutants movie got put on the cards, the Deadpool movie is intended to break the fourth wall, Brits missed out on certain Marvel comics (but are getting them this week – with the Diamond note to retailers making reference to Bleeding Cool), Library Binding came back to comics, DC dropped a legal suit, and Yamila Abraham of Yaoi Press was reported as charged with a number of offences.

Add to that the usual great stuff from Warren Ellis, Irene Adler, Adi Tantimedh, Si Spurrier and Professor Ethan Watrall (Josh took a wee break), that was the cool that was… contact me on richjohnston@gmail.com or call +44 7801350982 (07801350982) or write to Bleeding Cool, 8 Robin Hood Lane, London SW15 3PU, UK.
