Lying in the Gutters, 4th March 2018 – Levels of Smugness Could Be Fatal

It’s been a good week for Bleeding Cool in terms of confirmations. Stories such as Ta-Nehisi Coates on Captain America originally ran on Bleeding Cool back in June last yearJason Aaron on Avengers we ran back in JulyNick Spencer on Amazing Spider-Man from July, and Ryan Ottley from this January. Then there are more recent stories such as Donny Cates on Venom that ran last month and Cosmic Ghost Rider also from last month. Also that Matt Rosenberg would be writing a Multiple Man series. Which he is. Two years ago, we said that the Sandman Presents imprint would be launched at ECCC. And it was — just two years later.

Maybe the new writer of Lucifer, Dan Watters, can express the smugness we’re feeling?

Dan Watters

He wasn’t even born when Sandman was first published. And yes, that is Kieron Gillen‘s beard to the right. Oh, and the comments are back. Duck and cover…
