Our daily round-up of news around the comics space, from the gutters and beyond.

“STAN LEE PRESENTS: THE MIGHTY MARVEL COMICS STRENGTH AND FITNESS BOOK: Published in 1976 this comic book has become a bit of a cult classic oddity among comic collectors.”

Which is better: The Patriotic Pull or Peter’s Perpendicular Leg Extensions (for people with perpendicular legs)? It’s really hard to say.

“Tom the Dancing Bug: Go Set a Watchman, in which the sequel to ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ is a dark 1980s graphic novel meditation on vigilantism and Cold War anxieties.”

If you’ve been following the controversy surrounding the publication of Harper Lee’s new novel, Go Set a Watchman, this comic by Ruben Bolling is everything.

“Now that we’ve got some distance from the wacky and wonderful (sometimes!) year that was 2014, it’s time to look back and show some love for comics creators and creations that stood out. Yup, it’s time for the Awesome Awards 2014: Comics Edition!”

Over at Women Write about Comics, they’re voting on the best comics of 2014. Go forth and make your voice heard!
