It was quite a morning to sit down and catch up on this weekends comics tweets, and there is triumph and hilarity to share. First off, big-time congrats go out to Neil Gaiman, who took home a a Best Novel Hugo Award for "The Graveyard Book." You can check out his realtime reaction to the honor below, along with some ceremony commentary from "Doctor Who" writer Paul Cornell.
It was a great last few days for comic book writer commentary on movies, too. Rob Liefeld tweeted out where he stands on Seth Rogen's new "Green Hornet" movie, Geoff Johns reacted to a screening of "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" he attended, and Marc Bernardin called out the funeral scene from "Watchmen."

@robertliefeld I gotta say, I LOVE Seth Rogen, but Green Hornet just sounds like a bad, bad, idea. No interest whatsoever.

@GeoffJohns0 Just saw the worst movie of 2009 with @sterlinggates and Tom Root. Hint: It rhymes with G.I. Blow.
-Geoff Johns, Writer ("Blackest Night," "The Flash")
@marcbernardin @neilkleid any funeral scene that uses "The Sounds of Silence" as the musical cue is automatically the worst funeral scene ever filmed.
