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

“It’s tough to be a superhero. Not only do you have to drop everything and get into a brawl at a second’s notice, but you’re frequently misunderstood. Superheroes’ personal lives are a mess — especially their sex lives. But it gets worse. Here are 10 superheroes who are physically unable to have sex. Ever.”

This is a sad, sad, sad (but kind of hilarious) list. Poor, poor superheroes.

“Teddy heads to Cakes Cove on a mission to make his sweetheart the perfect genre-inspired V-Day cake.”

This is basically the coolest cake I have ever seen.

“I soon realized that Amalgam could be a space that focused on inclusivity and diversity.  Promoting and celebrating the vastness of what comic books have become in genre, subject matter, and characters.   The comic world is large enough to welcome all into its borders.”

A comics shop run by a woman that celebrates inclusiveness and diversity? You can bet I’ll be heading up to Philly once Amalgam Comics opens.
