Lying In The Gutters – 11th June 2012

From Cake Wrecks

This was the week in which DC Comics finally got round to mentioning that they were running all Zero issues in September. After a number of their creators had inadvertently blurted it out at a number of conventions of course, necessitating a special letter being sent round asking them to shut the fuck up. Not those words exactly, of course. And along with the third mini-wave of new DC titles, naturally I’ve started to hear about the fourth wave. More on that to come.
