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

    –       The big news we didn’t cover from yesterday was the curious case of mistreated colorists, as shared by color artist superstar Jordie Bellaire. She shared her experience of being not listed as a “guest” for a comic convention specifically because she is a colorist. That’s astounding to anyone who knows anything about comics, but it did lead to the magic of #coloristappreciationday in which people on Twitter shared their favorite colorists and the appeal of their work.

    It shouldn’t take something like this happening to help people be aware of why colorists are awesome, but it’s cool when something organic like #coloristappreciationday comes together.

    –       Kathleen David provides an update on Peter David’s condition, with wonderful, small steps being shared. Best of luck to Peter on his recovery — we’re all excited to hear about his improvements.

    –       Christian Bale called an 8-year old boy who is suffering from leukemia and just so happens to be a huge Batman fan. The results are life affirming and really confirms that, for all of the fervor there was about his on-set blow up while filming Terminator: Salvation, Bale definitely has a big heart AND gets Batman. Totally cool.

    –       Jim Zubkavich shares the results of putting Skullkickers up for people to read — free — online, and the results are both astounding and potentially hugely useful for those looking to get a leg up in their own creator-owned efforts. As Zub noted, doing this type of thing didn’t reduce their print readership, it’s bolstered it.

    –       Are you a fan of Funko Pop!’s awesome bobblehead figures of various famous licenses? Well, Comics Alliance has a look at the next wave of The Walking Dead ones, including Michonne and Glenn.

    –       Finally, SyFy’s reality show Face Off had their next great movie make up/special effect artists create the next wave of superheroes for a future DC Comic — namely, Justice League Dark. The results are…well, the results are mostly ridiculous looking, but someone has to win, so The Infernal Core will be appearing in Lemire and Fawkes’ Justice League Dark.
