Off-Panel: April 24, 2015

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

“We answered in a very juvenile and offensive way that rightfully angered some fans. I regret it and sincerely apologize.”

Chris Evans: good apology. Jeremy Renner: no comment.

“Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti brought a Star Trek uniform to the International Space Station and tweeted this incredible photo of herself wearing it in space.”

A for real astronaut dressed as Captain Janeway in space. Because awesome.

“Go back a few decades, however, and you’ll find that the ads that used to run in comics are absolutely crazy. And it’s not just in ways you’d expect, either. Sure, there are the ads for muscle-building programs and sea monkey kits that have been parodied ad nauseam, but that’s just a taste of what’s actually in those classic pages if you start digging.”

We do love the classic comic ads.
