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

“Rather than wait around for Marvel PR, 32-year-old Rebecca Millar decided to just make her daughter a Black Widow doll.”

I love this mom and hate the frequency of this type of story. MAKE BLACK WIDOW MERCH PEOPLE. (That doll is pretty damn cool looking tho.)

“The series Death Note follows the story of a young student named Light Yagami who discovers a notebook with a sinister power. If a name is written on the pages of this notebook, that person will die. The series started as a weekly magazine serial in Japan but has since spawned books, films and video games. It’s been popular – selling around 30 million copies worldwide. But with this popularity comes controversy. Death Note was one of 38 Japanese comics banned by Chinese censors.”

I wonder if this is available in translation because I AM INTRIGUED.

“Marvel Comics Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso has confirmed that the All-New All-Different Marvel #1’s rollout post-Secret Wars 2015 will take place over 4 months (October 2015 to February 2016) and involve 55 to 60 titles.”

That is a LOT of titles.
