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

“‘People are afraid of change, and they don’t like it when their toys are played with,’ said Marvel’s director of content and character development Sana Amanat, one of the co-creators of the new Ms. Marvel, Kamala Khan. ‘We’re trying to show that we’re not trying to take away your toys; we’re just showing them in a different light.'”

“Could the Death Star destroy a planet? And how much energy would it need?”

Today, in questions that we absolutely MUST have the answer to.

“It’s a dark day for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, as one of the heroes in a half-shell met their end in the latest issue of the franchise’s comic book.”

Wait, WHAT? (Spoiler warning for the latest TMNT comic issue, clearly)
