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

“Today, as the series [Preacher] continues through pre-production, SuperHeroHype has learned that one of the comic book series’ main characters will receive a change to their ethnicity. The plan is for Tulip O’Hare to be played by an African American actress.”

In the immortal words of Chandler Bing: Could I BE any more excited?

“The work of comic book artists and writers from the region — along with images created by a cartoonist for the New Yorker magazine — will be the focus of an art exhibit that opens Friday at Arts Mid-Hudson in the Town of Poughkeepsie.”

Comic book artists are true artists, and it’s always nice when the outside world recognizes that. If you’re near Poughkeepsie, check out the exhibit.

“Could some of those Fox, Marvel, or Warner Bros movies drop off the slate? Will Sony add more Spider-Man movies within the current timeline? We’ll keep you updated on all the latest developments.”

Comics Alliance has a pretty neat (and visually stunning—aesthetics matter!) infographic outlining all those pesky comic book movie release dates.
