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

“One question I’ve always had, though, is just how much MU impacts Marvel’s trade sales. Is Marvel losing all sorts of collected edition sales due to the convenience and excellence of their Unlimited library?”

Yep, I’m a stats nerd, which is why you keep seeing these posts show up on Off-Panel. But it’s SO INTERESTING.

“She might sound shallow, but Starfire has never been shallow, just unashamedly confident. That’s what her new look is, sexy and confident.”

I love this post for so many reasons, but especially because it details some of the real issues with Starfire’s New 52 portrayal and celebrates the character as a passionate, emotional woman.

“As part of DC Entertainment’s ongoing celebration of the Flash’s 75th anniversary, DC All Access has released a new video featuring 75 Flashes from the character’s history.”

Normally I’m not a huge fan of promo/marketing materials, but this is pretty clever.
