When you're a writer with as much clout as Brian Michael Bendis, life offers you certain occasional luxuries—like bicycle valets! Meanwhile, creators Andy Diggle and Brian Keene discussed what's in their word processors right now, and "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" creator Bryan Lee O'Malley shared his new poster for the upcoming Penny Arcade Expo.
Elsewhere, a certain comics writer seems to have the Twitter Report in his sights, according to a message he sent Splash Page editor Rick Marshall last night. Click on through to find out who it was, as well as a Green Lantern sketch by Jill Thompson, a "Batman and Robin" opinion from Paul Pope and birthday wishes to a favorite writer of mine, Mr. Anthony Johnston of "Wasteland" fame.
It's all in the Twitter Report for August 25, 2009.
