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

“Welcome to the Cartoonists of Color Database! Here you can find the names and information of over 700 (and growing!) cartoonists of color (people-of-color comic book creators).”

This is an incredible resource that MariNaomi has put together.

“For his humor-tinged series “We Can Be Heroes,” Dubai-based photographer Martin Beck focused not on the costumed do-gooders who get all the glory, but instead the ones who are simply going about their lives, some working just to get by.”

These are a lot of fun to look through.

“In an unexpected coincidence, weeks before James Spader turns a comic book character into a live-action villain, one of his live-action roles is making the journey in the opposite direction, with Titan Comics planning a comic book series based on NBC’s The Blacklist.

I have trouble keeping up with TV shows because there are so many good ones, but I do very much enjoy The Blacklist. I’m not sure how well it’ll work in comics, but I’m looking forward to finding out!
