Lying In The Gutters – 18th June 2012

Bat Dad by Andy Shango

What a wonderfully weird week. Traffic was way up as DC and Marvel rumour for their late 2012 and early 2013 plans started to leak – looks like we can expect more news on a number of them at San Diego Comic Con. Then drop the new League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen in the middle of it, a Catwoman cover controversy or two and an issue of Walking Dead doing rather well, and that’s a heady week. So… what dd you enjoy reading?
