This post originally appeared on Panels, which is now Book Riot Comics

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

“‘I get asked about this a lot because I’m black. Honestly I think it’s because we live in a society where white functions as default so when they see me they think, ‘She’ll have opinions on race’ and my opinions will have some sort of political meaning that a white person’s won’t. But no, everyone’s opinions on race and diversity matter because white isn’t neutral,’ [C. Spike Trotman] said.”

Nope, white is not default. This is an important thing to remember.

Did you miss that Ta-Nehisi Coates and Brian Stelfreeze are writing a Black Panther run for Marvel? Because THEY ARE.

“DC is celebrating their annual Batman Day event with a huge digital comics sale. Starting today, 1000 different Batman comics will be available for $.99 each through the Comixology, Amazon, Google Play, Barnes & Noble NOOK, Apple iTunes and iVerse platforms.”

There is some REALLY good stuff here.
