Lying In The Gutters – 13th June 2011

Cartoon by Ignacio Alcuri

One of our biggest stories of all time hit Thursday, bringing in record breaking traffic from around the world. It also helped give us the biggest week on Bleeding Cool since… the week before. The DC Comics Relaunch doesn’t seem to have let up, and we’re noticing Marvel bringing in their big news from October and November in an attempt to crack DC’s grip on the news cycle. We haven’t even seen Marvel’s September solicits yet (aside from a few sneaky covers that made their way through…)

Of course whether this all translates into sales is another thing. If DC do indeed want that marketplace leader position for September, they’ve got to grab ten points from Marvel…
