Welcome to the daily Lying In The Gutters. A runaround yesterday’s news on the site and what we might expect today. You can sign up to receive it as an e-mail here.
Apologies for the absence of the Daily LITG for the last few days, New York Comic-Con knocked me for seven. Check later today for a big round-up article though… until then…
Top five stories yesterday
- Toys R Us Tweets They Might Be Returning, Online Rage Ensues
- Stan Lee Issues Statement About Keya Morgan’s ‘Hostage Videos’ to Bleeding Cool
- Nintendo Switch Will Be Getting New Hardware in 2019
- John Byrne Says He Would Be Back at Marvel if C.B. Cebulski Shook His Hand
And, yes, I believe the Stan Lee story is going to be a thing running through the week. Keep watching the Daily Beast and Vulture for followup.
Things to do today (mostly in the UK as the US is exhausted):
