    Welcome back to The Rundown, our daily breakdown on comic news stories we missed from the previous day. Have a link to share? Email our team at rundown@multiversitycomics.com.

    In case you missed it yesterday, we exclusively previewed both “Johnny Boo is King” by Top Shelf Comix and issue #91 of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” by IDW Publishing.

    – “Archie” is rebranding (temporarily) as “Archie and Sabrina,” starting with May’s issue #705. The five-issue run will explore Archie Andrews and Sabrina Spellman’s newly blossoming love life.

    – AHOY Comics’ new series “Bronze Age Boogie” will contain a four-part back-up story, ‘Major Ursa’ by Tyrone Finch and Mauricet. The series will tell the story of a bear, Elvis, with “remarkable” intelligence that wants to prove his worth in the space program. “Bronze Age Boogie” drops in April.

    – Writer Tom Taylor has teased a new DC series with the hashtag #DCEASED, posting artwork on Facebook of a distraught Superman by Trevor Hairsine, and an ominous caption that reads “Darkseid was.”

    – Scholastic Graphix have acquired the rights to Sarah Graley and Stef Purenins’s “Donut the Destroyer,” which will be published next year. The middle-grade graphic novel tells the story of Donut, the daughter of two supervillains who rebels against her parents by enrolling at the Hero Institute. Graley’s next graphic novel, “Glitch,” will be published by Scholastic Graphix on May 14.

    – Hulu Senior Vice President of Originals Craig Erwich said in an interview with The Wrap that they are “open” to the possibility of reviving Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist, all of which were recently canceled by Netflix. “Marvel has a ton of titles we’d be interested in,” Erwich said. “It kind of just depends on when they’re ready, [and] who, most importantly, is going to be behind these things.”

    – The Gifted showrunner Matt Nix was interviewed by /Film, where he revealed that season 3 may be broadcast on a streaming service instead of network television.

    – Indonesia’s Information and Communications Ministry has demanded that Instagram block user alpantuni, who draws comics of gay, Muslim characters, and depicts characters criticizing homophobia. The IT minister threatened to block Instagram from the country if Instagram did not comply. As of Feb. 12, alpantuni’s page on Instagram has been deleted.

    – A Daily Telegraph cartoon is under fire for its depiction of an Arab man chasing a white, female health care worker. The cartoon, by artist Warren Brown, was commentary on Australia’s debate over asylum seekers on Nauru and Manus Island, who need medical evacuation. Critics on Twitter called the cartoon “absolutely appalling” and said it “promotes hate based on racial vilification.”

    – The graphic novel “Scarygirl” by Nathan Jurevicius is being adapted into an animated series by Toronto-based animation company Dark Slope. Dark Slope’s animation style is a combination of facial capture, motion tracking and the Unreal Engine; they are also releasing a VR game, Scarygirl Mission Maybee later this year.

    – Finally, TKO Studios’ titles are now on comiXology: the first two titles on the platform are Garth Ennis and Steve Epting’s “Sara,” and Tze Chun and Artyom Trakhanov’s “The 7 Deadly Sins.”
