'Avatar' Inspiration, More 'Losers' Pics And Wonder Woman Punching Racism In Today's Twitter Report

Twitter - AvatarAt least one famous comics artist claims James Cameron as a "major influence" and can't wait to see the director new effects-heavy film "Avatar."

Given Rob Liefeld's action scene sensibilities, that fact shouldn't surprise anyone, but he and Bryan Lee O'Malley lead the Twitter Report's feed of comics and movies-related tweets today.

"The Losers" artist Jock returned to tweeting as well, today, with some new video and pictures shown on a Spanish-language website, straight off the adaptation's set in Puerto Rico.

Each of those posts, as well as Matt Fraction on "Mad Men," and details for anyone who's ever wondered how fast Rick Remender writes, are all below in the Twiter Report for August 24, 2009.

"Avatar" pt 1: @robertliefeld Anyone else not loving Avatar? Cameron major influence on my work..Cable..duh..but CG characters look weird. I'll see it 2 times regardless

"Avatar" pt 2: @radiomaru BREAKING: apparently the alien-language subtitles in AVATAR are also written in Papyrus

@mattfraction i wish AMC could figure out a way to shoehorn in another 7 or 8 commercial breaks to MAD MEN. maybe between each line.

-Matt Fraction, Writer ("Casanova," "Invincible Iron Man")

@RobertKirkman So my current PC is going to become a machine used only to watch Deep Space Nine episodes on DVD at the office. Coolest office ever!

-Robert Kirkman, Writer ("Invincible," "The Walking Dead")

@GailSimone If Wonder Woman were in charge, she would punch closet racism in the face.

-Gail Simone, Writer ("Birds of Prey," "Wonder Woman")

@Remender Broke this mother f---er wide open - wrote a fully fleshed out issue outline in three hours... after spending four days figuring it out.

Parting Wisdom for the Day:

@cminzzz Watching people play GTA is a lot more fun than playing it. Especially when it is my grandma. Watching her kill people is pleasing.
