Ted Kennedy's death made headlines early enough to meet comics creators who were wrapping their night's work, as well as those who were just waking up, judging by the Twitter Report feed. Creators Mark Waid and B. Clay Moore were among those to comment.
Tweets of the last 12 hours also brought a completely unexpected TwitPic post from artist Todd McFarlane. For anyone who's wanted to see him draw Batman digitally, you'll definitely want to click on this link.
