    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.

    Man of Steel was a divisive movie, to say the least. But for all the cool imagery director of photography Amir Mokri put in, the post-production color correcting turned what should have been a vibrant film bleak and dreary. Now, the peeps at VideoLab have taken some clips from the movie and re-saturated the desaturization. Now that would have been a Superman movie.

    – Denver Comic Con’s harassment policy says that “if someone feels like they have been harassed it is harassment.” And that apparently extends to GamerGate merchandise. Denver Comic Con was already a great establishment since their whole MO is to fund a literacy through comics program, but this is worth a couple more thumbs up. GamerGaters already are crying, and DCC promises to issue a release later. (Oh, by the way, DCC is also having an “official beer.”)

    – Terry and Rachel Dodson are hard at work on the current “Princess Leia” series. Over on his blog, Terry Dodson shows a step-by-step process of a cover creation. While I feel the Dodsons interiors are sometimes rushed and inconsistent, there’s no denying they know how to put together a fetching cover image.

    – During C2E2, Marvel announced a ton of new titles, most resulting from this “Secret Wars” business. First up is  “Last Days,” (which sounds suspiciously like “Future’s End”), followed by “Battleworld”, and then “Warzones.” Expect to see the last stands of Ant-Man, Silver Surfer, and the Inhumans (lots of stuff with the Inhumans), as well as Howard the Duck become Howard the Human. Maybe the most “that makes sense” announcement: CM Punk is going to write the “Drax” series. Also, “Captain America: White.”

    – “Weird Al” Yankovich is guest editing an issue of MAD Magazine (which is from DC Comics). He talks with Shane Ryan over at Paste about the process and the honor of working for the magazine. It’s an enduring read and I’m mostly shocked the MAD people hadn’t gotten “Weird Al” sooner.

    – The next Marvel team-up? Apparently with TellTale Games. Nothing’s been announced yet, but they’re promising something for . . . 2017.

    – And finally in Webcomics Worth Clicking: check out Connor Willumsen’s “Sunset People.” Those colors, people. Those colors.
