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?
