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

“Benjamin Von Wong, the man behind “everyday people photographed as ‘Super Athletes,'” has since photographed everyday people dressed as superheroes actually on the edge of skyscrapers.”

This makes me nauseous if I look at it for too long, but it’s pretty cool.

“For the twelfth (!) year in a row, I’m going to try to figure out something that is hard to exactly perceive and understand: the size and shape of the sales of graphic novels and trade paperbacks through the book store market, as seen through the prism of BookScan.”

If you’re a stats nerd like I am, you’ll find this fascinating to comb through.

“Nilah Magruder’s web comic, M.F.K. became the first-ever recipient of the Dwayne McDuffie Award for Diversity, presented at Long Beach Comics Expo.”

I’ll be reading M.F.K. soon, and will also be paying close attention to future winners of this award.
