Lying In The Gutters - 10th December 2012

Boy Layton retro-draws Emma Frost… she’s certainly come a long way.

This weekend broke non-convention weekend records on the site, smashed them to smithereens. Everyone is talking about comics it seems, and those who create them. Or not. More to come, I think. But it wasn’t the most read story this weekend… that was a classic, and came courtesy of an order from Cracked.com to read it.

Later today we’ll run the poll for Comics Personality Of The Year. I wonder who will be on it?
