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

“Thousands of fans have donated more than $89,000 (and rising) to an online fundraiser to help address $200,000 in medical bills. The Hero Initiative, a nonprofit dedicated to helping comic book creators in need, is also extending a helping hand along with Batman publisher DC Comics, which announced the publication of a hardcover anthology of Breyfogle’s Batman work due for July.”

“It’s been several months now since we’ve heard anything official about TNT and Warner Bros.’ attempt at bring the classic DC Comics series The Teen Titans to the small screen, now known simply as The Titans. But recently casting has begun on the pilot, which has given us a first look at just who the lineup of the team will be for their first ever live action incarnation.”

The Nerdist has an exclusive on the new DC Comics series The Titans, its character lineup, and who’s in love with who. What do you think?

Apocalypse will feature the return trip for another franchise player: Rose Byrne’s Moira MacTaggert, the CIA agent and Professor X love interest introduced in 2011’s First Class.”

I’ll admit it, I’m excited about EW’s news that Rose Byrne will be coming back for X-Men: Apocalypse. Am I setting myself up for disappointment?
