    In case you missed it, we have video interviews with Steve Orlando and Nathan Hale from New York Comic Con, and an exclusive preview of next week’s “What If? Ghost Rider.”

    – Comic creators, including Erik Larsen, Rob Liefeld, Gail Simone, Greg Pak, and Walt Simonson, are turning to Twitter to help retrieve items stolen during last week’s New York Comic Con. The Beat has a rundown of creators who experienced thefts during NYCC, which has seen an increasing number of thefts and scams in recent years.

    – The Middle East North Africa Financial Network profiled “Stories of Solidarity,” a new graphic novel that aims to bring together emerging artists from Jordan and Syria and promote peace and social cohesion. Containing six short stories, the graphic novel will be available for free online.

    According to DC Daily, Guardians of the Galaxy writer and director James Gunn will be moving over to DC’s band of misfits, the Suicide Squad. Gunn will write Suicide Squad 2, bringing a “completely fresh” take to the franchise. It is unknown if he will be directing the film as well.

    – Some Avengers 4 toy packaging showed off new space suits for Thor and Rocket, meaning the remaining MCU heroes will likely take the fight to Thanos at some point during the movie. ComicBook.com has the first look.

    – In other “Guardians of the Galaxy”-related news, Newsarama has an updated Marvel teaser showing that Nova, Darkhawk, and Phyla-Vell are going to join Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw’s relaunched comic version of the team.

    – This January, BOOM! will publish “WWE: Forever,” an oversized one-shot featuring stories about wrestlers from throughout the franchise’s history. Newsarama has details on the exact line-up of featured wrestlers and storytellers.

    – Image Comics took to Twitter to remind you that tomorrow is Walking Dead Day. To learn more about what Walking Dead swag you might be able to pick up at your local shop on 10.13.18, click here.

    – And finally, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Ryan Coogler’s signed on to write and direct a Black Panther sequel, which seemed inevitable in light of the film’s $1.3 billion worldwide gross.
