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

What it is about comics, and the ways they frequently explore spectacular fantasy, that led Pegg to make his initial remarks? Yes, comics can be a part of childhood, but is that all they are? And are we so certain that spectacular fantasy cannot play an important role in adult life?

This response to Simon Pegg’s comments is very thoughtful.

In a legal battle no-one can believe is actually happen, DC comics are attempting to fight pop-superstar Rihanna as she attempts to trademark her first name ‘Robyn’.

ERM. Okay then.

If you’re looking for cartooning inspiration, or just like making goofy comics, you’ll want to gather your friends and try Mangaka: The Fast & Furious Game of Drawing Comics. There’s a crowdfunding campaign currently running for the game, and we got a chance to play it.

I missed this in my Kickstart This post, so wanted to mention it here, since there are only a couple of days left to back it. It looks cool!
